Oh boy, where to begin.
It has come to light that George Lucas, in his original script for Episode III, had another “I am your father scene.” This time it was the Emperor telling Anakin that he’s his dad.
Here is what Palpatine said in the original script,
“I have waited all these years for you to fulfill your destiny. I arranged for your conception. I used the power of the Force to will the midichlorians to start cell divisions that created you.”
Imagine if we had to sit through that on top of everything? More midichlorian garbage?
I’m glad he decided to drop the scene, but it does show that a lot of the prequels were a re-hash of old ideas mixed with bad ones (like the midichlorians). Below is a great video on the subject.
For those of you needing to blow off some steam. Go to the website below and scream “Nooooooooo!” alongside Vader.
