George Lucas Explains Vader’s Death with Luke “Help Me Take This Mask Off”
In star wars return of the Jedi, we had the climactic conclusion of Anakin Skywalker and George Lucas star wars saga as we know it. The completion of the chosen one prophecy ended with Vader dying and Anakin being released into the force. The selfless sacrifice of Luke Skywalker catalyzed Anakin’s return to save his son, overthrow the Emperor, and bring ‘balance’ to the force. The scene always makes me emotional (no surprise), so I find it awesome to read George Lucas’ thoughts on that scene as he wrote it.
