Extract from "exclusive news on Star Wars 2 - 1979"

"George's other sequels include adventures on the Wookiee's planet - "the Wookiees are like the Indians ... noble savages" - and another about Ben Kenobi, Luke's father and Darth Vader when they were still all young Jedi Knights. "But Vader kills Luke's father ... Ben almost kills Vader. He falls into a volcanic pit and gets fried. That's why he has to wear the suit with a mask, a breathing mask. It's like a walking iron lung. His face is all horrible inside. I was going to shoot a close-up of Vader in Star Wars where you could see his face, but then we said, no - it would destroy the mystique of the whole thing."

At one time, a Star Wars actor told us that the secret of Darth Vader, then intended to be announced in the second movie, was quite simply that, beneath the mask, Darth actually was Luke's father! But though this would have led to an interesting conflict, father vs son, it seems the idea has now been dropped."
