Throughout the original trilogy of Star Wars films, viewers learn that Darth Vader’s powerful connection to the force enables him to sense disturbances in its patterns, and none is greater than when he is nearby Luke Skywalker. Although these signs might have pointed to a deeper connection, there was no greater cinematic shock of that era than the revelation that Vader was Luke’s father.
