You know, I frequently wonder at the amount of venom in Luke’s voice when speaking to Jabba in ROTJ. It always makes me think that maybe Luke’s been dealing with Jabba and his thugs a lot longer than you’d think - growing up on Tatooine, where Jabba and his goons controlled everything and kept slaves and probably mistreated and roughed up people left and right, d'you think there was a part of Luke that wanted him to pay for the crimes he’d committed? For the friends he’d seen kept as slaves? For the times he’d watched his Uncle Owen get pushed around by Jabba’s goons? For the poverty and decrepitude of the place he lived? For the people killed off in the night because they’d offended the slug?

I mean, I understand that part of the spit of his tone is because a) what happens to Leia and b) what happened to Han, obviously, but I also think, especially when Luke says “you’ve done this for the last time, Jabba” (or something to that effect, I can’t remember it verbatim) he sounds distinctly as though he’s talking about something more than just the immediate harm that’s come to his friends.

And you know, a part of me really, really likes that. You go Luke. You kick Jabba’s ass. You make him pay for the crimes he’s committed.

(And the fact that Leia is the one that actually kills him makes it EVEN BETTER - Anakin’s kids slaying the enslaving, corrupt drug lord that controlled their planet of origin and ruined so many lives. Damn straight.)

Return of the Jedi - Original Teaser Trailer

This trailer for Return of the Jedi is identical to one released earlier in 1982, with one exception: it features the movie’s new title and logo. Famously, the film was originally called Revenge of the Jedi until George Lucas opted to change the name, noting that revenge is not the Jedi way.

The trailer features glimpses at many of Return of the Jedi’s action setpieces, including the Battle of Endor, the speeder bike chase, and the attack on the Death Star. It also keeps some things secret; neither Jabba the Hutt nor the Emperor are included.

Interestingly, the trailer shows Luke Skywalker wielding a blue lightsaber – in the final film, his Jedi weapon would have a green blade, resulting in a more visual pop against the blue sky background seen during the attack on Jabba’s sail barge. Also included is a quick shot of Obi-Wan Kenobi before “spirit” effects were added.

  • I love Wicket. I love all the ewoks, but I love Wicket A LOT. He finds a stray Leia and adopts her like sure why not. Thx for the biscuit, strange hairless stray cat. We’re friends now. You’re clearly helpless, but what can you expect from the hairless, right - i shall pet you and keep you and call you mine. Stick with me, hairless cat.
  • Vader addresses the emperor in super poetic, overly-formal: ‘what is thy bidding, my master?’, but the emperor talks to Vader like a petulant teen: ‘I TOLD you to stay on the command ship’. Vader reveals new information. Emperor: ‘ugh, I KNOW that already, I’m BORED with this convo.
  • ok so someone actually PROGRAMMED IT SPECIFICALLY INTO C-3PO THAT HE COULD NOT IMPERSONATE A DEITY. That is a very specific prohibition there, friend. I am fascinated by this.
  • Ewok tree village for life. Tied for my fave with the tree village from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (bc Lothlorien is kind of terrifying tbh)
  • Luke can force-move practically anything, but instead just kind of stays there, tied an ewok log, 100% chill, until the very last moment when there’s literally fire under Han. Again, Luke can be kind of a dick. I love it. (Alternately, he is aiming for a non-violent, diplomatic solution as opposed to trashing the tree village, so ok)
  • Ewok babies. Painfully cute when I was 5. Painfully cute now.
  • 3P0 RETELLING THE ‘STORY THUS FAR’ AS AN EPIC ORAL NARRATIVE OF MYTHICAL HEROES AND VILLAINS IS STILL AMAZING AND BRILLIANT. IT’S AN EPIC MYTHICAL NARRATIVE ABOUT AN EPIC MYTHICAL NARRATIVE. MYTH-CEPTION. VADER AS GRENDEL. The Skywalkers and Han listening to THEIR OWN story as though it happened to someone else. Amazing.

Luke Skywalker & Mon Mothma, a few days post-ROTJ

~ companion piece to Elegy ~

because I don’t know well enough when to leave things alone bye


“Commander Skywalker, can you hear me?”

Breathe in.  Hold.  Breathe out.

Six months.  It had been six standard months, give or take, since he’d felt this terrible, and the circumstances couldn’t have been more different.  Yet at both times, his mind had drawn a blank when trying to consider the future.  Six months ago, with his hand and his father’s lightsaber and his foolish dreams gone, he’d had no idea how to go forth.  Beyond the loss itself, the worst aspect of Han’s capture for him had been finding a focus, something to keep his head just above the crashing waves of doubt, anger and fear.  He hadn’t wanted to look his friend - his brother, really - in the eye when Han had said in the midst of the sandstorm, Now I owe you one.

Once more the days ahead were nebulous and not tranquil; the war was far from over, and the Alliance fleet had been decimated.  But the Emperor was dead.  Darth Vader was dead, and Anakin Skywalker was free.  Another Death Star was destroyed.  The heart of the Empire had been torn out.  The impossible, the insurmountable, had come to pass, all in one day.  And he was still alive - he, his sister, his brother-in-law (for he just couldn’t picture them not being together after all this), and his dearest friends and comrades.  The weight of this realization settled over him, heavy yet soothing, pressing him down into the repulsor gurney’s cushion.  For once he did not mind the pleasant apathy it inspired.

“Luke?”

Leia’s tense voice broke through the hollow rhythm of his own breath echoing back at him from within the mask that shrouded his face.  Her brow was furrowed in deep concern.  He blinked, squeezed her hand, and mouthed I’m here.  I’m here.

The pain and nausea and weakness were overwhelming now, but he drifted calmly above them, breathing through the discomfort with a meditation technique Yoda had taught him.  Idly he wondered if the irascible little Jedi master would be proud or amused.

Nothing else - he thought, he fervently hoped - would ever hurt as much as what had caused this in the first place.

He smiled faintly at Leia to reassure her and closed his eyes, sinking into oblivion.
