Darth Vader’s Thoughts on the YOUNGLINGS Anakin Killed – Star Wars Explained
In today’s video, I’ve taken my information from two Star Wars books; the young adult novel “The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader” by Ryder Windham and “Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader” by James Luceno, which is aimed at a more mature audience (it’s also a great novel and one of my favourites, despite it being relegated to legends status).
As you know, after Anakin Skywalker pledged his elegance to Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith, he made his way to the Jedi Temple where he murdered some terrified younglings. I’ve done a few videos on why Anakin did this over at the Star Wars Theory YouTube channel, but for today, I want to explore what the post Mustafar Darth Vader thought of this evil deed. Was he ashamed of his actions, was he full of remorse, or was he happy about his past wrong doings?
As part the video below, I explore how Darth Vader felt when he returned to the Jedi Temple looking for various relics and holocrons.
Taking everything into consideration, it would certainly appear that Vader still had at least a sliver of humanity buried somewhere deep down under all of the scars and armour. It makes sense because if he was 100% evil through and through, his son Luke would never had been able to redeem him at the end of Return of the Jedi.
So, what do you think guys? Does he’s deep down remorse make for a more interesting and multi faceted character, or do you prefer the evil Dark lord of the Sith we are all used to? Let everyone know what you think over at the channel. or here in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
As always my Jedi and Sith friends, thanks for dropping by and MTFBWY, always!
