Kymberlie and I were just discussing Mikey’s post about the “Attack of the Clones” and … I have a confession. See, I knew that Anakin was Darth Vader, and that he was Luke’s father. (“Luke, I am your faaaaather…”) But you see, I had no clue that Princess Leia was his twin sister. Dude! How did I live all these years without knowing that? I had no clue! That explains why my life has felt so incomplete.
Seriously, I haven’t watched the first three movies (now numbered 4 through 6) since they came out in the theater, and I only saw them then because I was a kid and taken there with my friends. I never saw Episode I. I saw Episode II, but I couldn’t keep half the characters straight. I enjoyed it, but didn’t know really what was going on.
But I had no idea that Luke & Princess Leia were twins. I can’t believe it. Really, you can laugh at me – I’m ok with it. I still just don’t believe I had no idea. Did you know? Was I the last person to find out the truth?
