Reverse Empire (spoilers!)

April 2nd, 2015


 

Let’s face it: if you’re reading this, you’re the kind of person who’s familiar with the second Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back. You’ve memorized the scene where Darth Vader reveals to Luke Skywalker: “I am your father.”

In a recent episode of The Flash, an evil villain played by Mark Hamill — Luke Skywalker himself! — makes the same revelation to his young trainee.

I’m dubbing this move the “Reverse Empire.”

Saw the Yoda statue, did I.

I located this with the aid of Google Maps. Turns out it’s near the street for the Letterman Digital Arts Center (aka where Lucasfilm is located in SF) which is a short stroll from the Palace of Fine Arts.

(Side note: anyone else think it’s funny that Lucasfilm is located near Starfleet Headquarters?)
