In the history of 45 years, Star Wars has given us some of the most shocking twists in cinematic history. Star Wars movies have always been full of exciting twists and turns. From shocking character revelation to major surprises, Star Wars never disappoints its fans. One thing which a person who watches any Star Wars movies or TV series will definitely remember will be the unforgettable moments they lived through the characters and the story. Let’s witness every Star Wars twist that left everyone stunned!
“Luke, I’m your Father”
How can we not start this list with undoubtedly the biggest twists in cinema history. When we found out in The Empire Strikes Back that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father, everyone was left shocked! But why was everyone so surprised after knowing this!? The reason behind this is the prior connection between Vader and Luke. The audience and even Luke believed that Vader was the one who was behind his parent’s death, and then he finds that his father is not only alive, but the greatest Darth, that’s a blow!
2. Anakin Killing the Younglins
In the film “Revenge of the Sith”, everyone almost knew that we’d finally see Anakin Skywalker transforming into Darth Vader. Therefore, hardly any twists were expected this time by the audience. But what came as a massive shock for everyone was when the Jedi Knight traveled to the Jedi Temple and killed all the younglings hiding there. But this time, he literally crossed all the lines, which was completely unexpected even for Vader!
3. Return of Darth Vader
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Movie” classifies as one of the finest Star Wars films ever released. At first, everyone thought that it was a simple Disney movie with a straightforward plot. But surprisingly, it was the opposite. In a very thrilling action sequence, Vader cruelly murders almost everyone, including some of the main leads, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Chirrut, K2SO, and Baze Malbus. The movie had a significant impact on everyone in the audience.
4. Luke and Leia are Siblings
This twist is shocking and cringy simultaneously. After knowing the fact that Luke and Leia are siblings, everyone remembered the fact that they kissed in “Empire Strikes Back”. Though this was really weird and awful, we can’t deny that this was also a shocking family revelation. However, this was slightly less shocking compared to Vader being Luke’s father revelation! But it still makes the audience uncomfortable to rewatch the movie now after knowing that they both kissed.
5. Darth Vader Holding on to the Light Side
Ending this amazing list with another shocking twist from “The Empire Strikes Back”. The redemption of Darth Vader still qualifies as one of the most iconic moments in Star Wars. Throughout the Star Wars saga, Darth Vader was known as the ruthless villain who did so many bad things to almost everyone. But to see a sudden change of character in Vader, people were pretty surprised! And honestly, it was quite satisfying too!
