I saw this via one of the many star wars subreddit’s I followed on Reddit and thought it would make a great discussion piece for my blog. In this image, the creator has photoshopped an older light side Anakin who is giving his advice to a dark side version of Luke.
It has been upvoted quite a bit in the thread and in the thread people mention a non-canonical version of the Original Trilogy that was released in comics by Dark Horse. This comic book series is called Star Wars Infinities where key plot elements from the original films have been altered. So basically, it’s the events of the original trilogy depicted from an alternate point of view.
I’m definitely interested in reading this series, and I’ve already started collecting them, so I’ll be featuring these comics here on my blog as part of the Star Wars is Poetry series. I don’t know if the above scene is included in these comics, but I am excited to find out exactly what was changed, and the impact those changes had on the original story and characters.
But what do you think about the above image? Is this how you would have imagined the conversation between a light side Anakin and a dark side Luke would have gone? Would it have ended up in a duel like that of Anakin and Obi-Wan in Revenge of the Sith? Wouldn’t that be something to see!
As always, I am keen to hear feedback from my readers about this post, let me know in the comments!
Stay safe, my friends and I’ll catch you in the next post!
