The Reason Darth Vader Built His Fortress On Mustafar
Darth Vader is arguable one of the best villains in pop culture, which has been stated numerous times before. What would a dark, imposing, evil villain be without a dark and looming castle to abide in? Fortunately, Vader has one of the best and most sinister castles in pop culture as well. Built on the site of Vader’s greatest defeat and sinister planet in itself, Vader’s Castle, or Vader’s Fortress if you prefer, overlooks the lava-filled crevices of Mustafar. It is as dark, menacing, and evil as the person who inhabits it. However, the castle actually has a deeper connection and purpose for the Sith than just appearance.

Original Jabba The Hutt From 'A New Hope' Has Been Made Canon

Thus is the fluid nature of George Lucas’ creative process.

'Star Wars' Theory: Luke Was To Deflect Attention Away From Leia, The True Secret Weapon Against The Emperor
"No. There is another." The revelation that Luke and Leia are siblings was one of the biggest plot twists in cinema history, and it is one that fans continue to talk and debate to this day.
