Topic: Luke vs Vader in RotJ (ma 1st topic!)
Hi fellow fans,
Did you ever think that the final duel in episode VI, (Luke vs Vader in the EmperorÃ¢Â€Â™s throne room) is short? A few fans do. But it is not: Luke gives in to his anger and clashes with Vader above PalpatineÃ¢Â€Â™s head in RotJ DVD chapter Ã¢Â€Âœthe Dark Side BeckonsÃ¢Â€Â. Then there is a 3 minute long scene on Endor, and then the next scene is on the EmperorÃ¢Â€Â™s Throne Room, where we see Luke and Vader being really into a vicious one-on-one lightsaber duel, but this time, 12 feet (4 meters) away from Palpatine.
This means that Luke and Vader were battling during that 3 minutes long scene. Which means, while we watch Endor, the duel continues on the (second) Death Star, and I also have proof: the RotJ novel doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t cut the part of the duel that is cut from the film. It describes a very physical and equal fight before Vader is kicked down the stairs that is never seen in the film. It says Ã¢Â€ÂœLuke and Vader were slowly circling, trading numerous blows with no injury, until Luke attacked very aggressively and finally got Vader next to the stairs, knocking him downÃ¢Â€Â.
So that Ã¢Â€ÂœtheoryÃ¢Â€Â is a fact! It's on Wookieepedia, too.
You may have noticed it before as well, itÃ¢Â€Â™s quite implied.
What doya think? Do you see a point in my thoughts?
Post your opinions and/or if you have any comments, thoughts or instances about this fact.
Have a beautiful day and MTFBWY always, Edgeorge.
