today I have lost even more respect for the writing of the star wars franchise, a move I did not think possible, when I learned that "Vader" is dutch for Father.

dude, bro, man, my guy, did you really name the plot twist "this guy is the main characters dad!!" FATHER? come onnnnnnn

@t54r4n1 You may be pleased (or not) to know that Star Wars was a total mess until it was saved in the edit by George's then-wife Marcia Lucas: youtube.com/watch?v=GFMyMxMYDN

@t54r4n1 An interesting case where someone won a literal Oscar for their work and is still somehow drastically under-appreciated

@t54r4n1 @firewally Marcia Lucas is a fascinating and unsung figure in Star Wars and probably the main reason they managed to catch as hard as they did with a generation. She knew how to tell a story visually, where I don't know if George Lucas does.

@earthtopus @t54r4n1 @firewally I hate that this is basically accurate representation of Star Wars naming conventions.

@densetsu @t54r4n1 @firewally other characters, like Momm Momthma and Jaxx Rudewaiter, were also secretly inspired by people George Lucas had met along his journey

@earthtopus @t54r4n1 @firewally I remember when the Potter books were first coming out and reviewers always heaped praise on Rowling's naming conventions, which I never thought were particularly original, and am now starting to feel they were a step below George Lucas's.
