Disney celebrates Father's Day in true Star Wars style.
It’s a special day of the year to celebrate dads – and they come in all shapes and sizes! Big or small, tall or short, bringing balance to the force or on a mission to quell the rebellion across the galactic empire, every dad is unique. Among the most unique and famous dads in film history is none other than Darth Vader.
The year was 1980 and in one of the most iconic scenes ever portrayed on the big screen, cinema-goers (and every new Star Wars fan since) let out a collective gasp as the villainous Vader revealed Luke Skywalker’s parentage in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, by uttering the line:
“No, I am your father.”
So this Father’s Day, we are celebrating the famous line from this pivotal scene in true Star Wars style!
Get your dad to put his feet up and tune in to Disney XD (DStv, Channel 304) on Father’s Day from 13:45 as we’ve put together the very latest and greatest Star Wars programming including Phineas and Ferb: Mission Star Wars; the episode of Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles entitled Clash of the Skywalkers; and our Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion special!
