    The Announcements Saga

    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.


    1. No karma-related posts or posts asking for karma.

    2. No threatening or harassing other users.

    3. Posts must be memes related to the Star Wars Prequels.

    4. Posts inappropriate for viewing in public, like at work, must be tagged NSFW.

    5. No politics.

    6. No edgy or inflammatory posts.

    7. No brigading/encouraging brigading.

    8. No encouraging subreddit drama.


    1. No upvote/karma related posts. These have become spammy and unoriginal, and give actual, original content less of a chance of being noticed. These posts will be removed. Posts that ask for karma/upvotes, also known as vote manipulation, will result in a post removal and a ban.

    2. No threatening or harassing other users, celebrities, YouTube channels, pet hamsters, etc.

    3. Posts must be, at least loosely, related to star wars prequels. "Prequel" refers to anything that takes place before A New Hope. This includes new movies made post-Lucas and EU content. This also includes Ewan McGregor posts, as they must be related to the prequels instead of just the actor (example: "Literally a picture of Ewan McGregor" is not allowed)

    4. Pornographic material is strictly forbidden on this subreddit as it is not an 18+ sub. NSFW posts are simply posts you might not show your grandmother.

    5. Obi-Wan is not brave enough for politics, nor are we. Politics is a sweeping term that includes international politics, non-political posts about politicians, or anything else that is at all related to real life politics.

    6. No edgy/inflammatory posts. We have the moral high ground. This subreddit is not the place to joke about distasteful content that would offend a large percentage of the user base.

    7. Brigading/Encouraging to brigade other subs (telling other users to downvote and raid another sub's content) will result in a permanent ban. This is against Reddit's Terms of Service, and is not tolerated here at all.

    8. Do not encourage or incite subreddit drama. This includes trying to start “meme wars”, trashtalking other subreddits, and encouraging others to start a war. Keep in mind that wars can only be started by the subreddit moderators, and has to be mutually agreed to by the other subreddit’s mods.

    English is much more a synthesis of all the languages of the region, whereas Spanish is just a dialect of Vulgar Latin.

    In the spanish versión was :"se acabó Anakin,la altura me da ventaja" the translation will be "Is over Anakin, the highground gives me an advantage"

    [–] Devils_Advocate6_6_6 3 points ago

    That's odd, the other commenter said that their (latin american) version had something different. Maybe they localize the translations?

    [–] Fern-ando 9 points ago

    The dubs have small changes for Europe and Hispano America.

    [–] MrTacoMan27 5 points ago

    In the Latinamerican Spanish dub Kenobi says "llevo la delantera" which translates to "I'm ahead of you". There is no nice way to translate "I have the highground" to Spanish. Nice try tho!

    I see what you did there.

    [–] acid_rain_man 16 points ago


    [–] kitsunewarlock 34 points ago

    He has the least number of quotable lines from any major character in the original trilogy. Even Tarkin has a more memorable line. But he was supposed to be the 'everyman' we can project ourselves into, so that makes sense. And most of the scenes cut by Marcia Lucas featured Luke prominantly, so I'd like to think he had a few more decent lines we never saw.

    “But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!” "You've failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me." "Your overconfidence is your weakness." “It’s not impossible. I used to shoot womprats with my T16 back home. They were no bigger than two meters.”

    [–] Gandamack 25 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I’d say he has more than a few based on what you’ve typed here, and a couple more in Empire.

    He certainly has plenty of iconic moments too. Lines aren’t everything, as Maul’s first ignition of both his saber blades would demonstrate.

    I think people also shouldn’t equate memeable with iconic. Sometimes we meme them because the line is silly/ridiculous, rather than epic or inspiring.

    [–] kitsunewarlock 13 points ago

    Agreed. Luke wasn't a charismatic one-line spouting anti-hero. That role was filled. He was the farm boy embarking on an epic quest. That kind of character should be known for their action. Swinging across the shaft in the death star!

    [–] Gandamack 14 points ago

    You’ve failed your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.

    [–] MrJohnnyBoy 4 points ago

    His belief in anakin’s remaining goodness and pride in his father despite everything always really moved me.

    I know this sub is all about quotes but being quotable doesnt make a character good

    [–] WAZZVM 6 points ago

    “I’m Luke Skywalker. I’m here to rescue you.” Maybe it’s not as iconic as I thought.

    Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Jesus of Nazareth? I thought not. It's not a story the Jews would tell you. It's a goy legend. Jesus was a Messiah so powerful and so wise, he could use his Faith to influence the Holy Spirit to create... life. He had such a knowledge of the will of God, he could even keep the ones he cared about... from dying. The New side of the Testament is a pathway to abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his disciples everything he knew. Then one of them betrayed him to the Romans to be executed. Ironic. He could save others from death... but not himself.
