The cast and crew first heard it when they saw the finished film. When we shot it, Father’s line was, “You don’t know the truth, Obi-Wan killed your father.” Only Irvin Kershner, George Lucas and I knew what would be dubbed later. Pain that keeps it a secret for over a year! He replied.

He referred to The Empire Strikes Back director Kershner, who died in 2010 at the age of 87, and Star Wars creator Lucas, 76.
