Kid Reacts to Empire Strikes Back Reveal


Well if this isn’t the cutest damn thing I’ve seen all day.

I watched the Star Wars trilogy when I was young, very young, and I honestly don’t remember the exact moment I learned that Darth Vader was in fact Luke Skywalker’s father. I just grew up always sort of knowing.

For this kid however, it’s clear from his reaction that this moment will be etched in his memory forever, as I’ve never seen a clearer example on video of someone’s mind being absolutely blown to this degree.

The magic of the movies indeed.

    The father could be going through them 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3. Even though the prequels happen earlier chronologically, I still think of them as the last three star wars movies.

    of course he looks at the camera right away. the son is just looking at his dad like “wtf dad, that’s crazy” because his dad probably told him something awesome was coming up.

  3. I kinda agree with antoine. It does look fake. The daughter keeps smiling throughout the video in a rather odd way. And the son looks at the cam like “OK dad, now?”
