Day 2 of The Star Wars Challenge:
Favorite Movie of the Original Trilogy - Return of the Jedi
Not only is this my favorite film of the original trilogy, but it’s my favorite of the entire saga. Even though the cinematography is not to par with The Empire Strikes Back, it makes up for it with the dialogue and chemistry between the characters, which is much more intimate in this film. It brings closure to Anakin’s story, ushers in The New Republic, and leaves the rest of the story to explore in the Expanded Universe.
I just love this quote. It’s so easily overlooked, seen as unimportant, until you see the prequels. Because then you realize how utterly true and heartbreaking that phrase is. “He died about the same time your father did.” Meaning that Obi-Wan, that is, everything that made him who he was, his faith, his joy, his light, was murdered, killed, at the same time that Anakin was lost to the Dark Side. When Anakin became Vader, Obi-Wan became Ben. Anakin and Obi-Wan died together on that planet. Only Vader and Ben left it alive. One full of hate and darkness, the other a broken shell that was merely existing, not even really living. These two men were so deeply entwined, so bonded together in the force, that when one died, so did the other. That is the real definition of true love.
did you really need to
