Nerd Watch: How Did Princess Leia React to News That Darth Vader was Her Father?

Jul 08, 2011

Ever wonder how Princess Leia reacted to the news that Darth Vader was her father too? It's probably the most emotionally powerful scene of the entire six-film franchise when, in Empire Strikes Back, Luke learns the truth about who his father is from the villain himself. Not only does the poor kid scream out in agony, but he practically takes his own life by letting himself fall into some dark hole leading to who knows where.

But what about Leia? When Luke drops the bomb on her in Return of the Jedi, she's way too calm -- it's almost as if she's in shock over the news. Okay, fine, she's in shock -- but how does she react after the shock wears off?  See the t-shirt below, created by mathiole and now up for voting over at Threadless.
