By now, pretty much everyone has seen the trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. In fact, you’ve probably watched it at least two or three times. Details about the film are still under sparse, but Glenn thinks there is a huge plot point hidden in the trailer. What is it?
WARNING: Do not read this story unless you want to see potential spoilers!
First, watch the trailer:
In the trailer Luke says, "The Force is strong in my family. My father has it. My sister has it. You have that power too."
Notice how that's all said in present tense? Why would Luke be saying his father has The Force when he's been dead for some time when the movie takes place?
"Is Darth Vader still alive?" Glenn asked.
One theory, which Glenn discussed on radio, is that Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader was cloned and will reappear in some form in the new movie. 'Attack of the Clones', the second prequel, established cloning technology as a big part of the film universe.
"Was he cloned?" Pat asked. "We don't know. Because they have kept the wraps on this thing like really no movie I can remember."
