What IF Luke Failed to DESTROY The Death Star - Star Wars Infinities Explained
In a galaxy not so far, far, away, Star Wars is heading full-steam into its future. With seven mainstream films, Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the way, and a growing series of anthology films, we have enjoyed 40 years of Luke, Leia, and Vader. While some of us may have limited ourselves to the offerings of Lucasfilm and Disney, there is a whole expanded universe of novels and comic books out there and ripe for the plucking. With Disney planning more films up until , there is plenty of room yet to shoehorn in a giant green rabbit or a Dark Side version of C-3PO. While it may have seemed that Darth Vader was the big bad of Star Wars , it is easy to forget he was the puppet of the pale-faced Emperor Palpatine.

While these gaffes are occasionally addressed on-screen — like when Attack of the Clones indirectly clarified that Yoda trained Obi-Wan before Qui-Gon took over — typically, it falls to other tie-in media to plug any storytelling gaps that arise. The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi firmly position Darth Vader as the second most feared guy in the galaxy, with only Emperor Palpatine surpassing him in power and authority. The original Star Wars trilogy features several memorable scenes of Luke Skywalker learning to become a fully-fledged Jedi Knight, but his lightsaber lessons are almost totally glossed over. From Darth Vader heading up a squad of battle droids to Thrawn collecting buzz droids, and right on through to Luke Skywalker squaring off against MagnaGuards, the comics continue the proud tradition of recycling the saga is famous for. Thank goodness for the Chewbacca mini-series Marvel published back in , then. Here, we see the kind-hearted Wookiee bestow a medal identical to those seen in A New Hope upon a brave young girl named Zarro. The clear implication here is that Chewbacca did indeed receive a medal for his services, presumably at a separate ceremony not depicted on the big screen.
