Episode _ VI v0.91

If you haven’t been following the writings of Darth Vader on his ‘darthside‘ blog, then you’ve been missing out on some very humorous, but also poignant, writing. Today’s post wraps up the blog as Vader prepares for his final moments of confrontation with his destiny.

I wouldn’t qualify myself as a Star Wars Uber-fan, but I have read nearly every novel published that involves the central characters of the 6 Star Wars films (sorry, bounty hunter fans, but I just couldn’t get into those). This blog entries, especially the last half-dozen or so, iluminate the Skywalker family mythos and pathos as well as any of the novels I’ve read.

I’ll be sad if Episodes VII-IX are never made. The characters from Episodes IV-VI are still where my passion lies. The New Jedi Order books take these characters to some amazing places. I can only imagine what comes next. The story of the Skywalker family has just begun.

  1. Prepare to be sad, then, since there won’t be Episodes 7-9. They haven’t been a possibility for over twenty years. As Lucas has said many times, the main plot elements for those episodes were the redemption of Vader, and the discovery of Luke’s sister (originally intended to be a new character, who had been training in a different part of the galaxy), both of which he was able to fold into Return Of The Jedi.

    There are rumours that he will allow other films to be made within the SW galaxy–think of the Ewok films of the 80s–but the story of Star Wars, for George Lucas, is the fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker, and that ended in 1983. Sorry. :)

  3. I agree with you, John. I grew up hearing about Star Wars as ‘a trilogy of trilogies’. I’ve had my heart set on another three, and I don’t think it’s fair for Lucas to renege.
