Ad Lib During Filming[edit]

The story that Irvin Kershner told Harrison Ford to "improvise on the spot" and then he changed his line from "I love you too" to "I know" appears to be false. There's a transcript of an audiotape made at the time that has them discussing the scene before shooting, and that's where Ford comes up with the line. Also, the original line being replaced had Han promising Leia that he'd be back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.88.64.228 (talkcontribs)

Issues in the "Writing" Section[edit]

The second to last paragraph has some weird and anachronistic descriptions of events from prequels, with an incorrect citation (#27) to Kaminski's book. I'm not sure why such a specific description of prequel events, starting with the parenthetical comment about Sith Lords is part of this section. What does it contribute to an understanding of the writing process of Empire? Also, I can't even verify that it is accurate -- those ideas are not in Kaminski's book. I propose that the extra descriptions be deleted, and instead end the discussion with the act of combining Anakin and Vader into the same character, as that is the only supported claim from the citation.

quote confusion[edit]

Many people incorrectly remember a famous quote from the movie as"Luke,I am your father" when it is really "No, i am your father" This confusion has generated multiple theories to explain the memories, including a change made for the special edition version, time travel, or parallel universes and has been described as an instance of the Mandela effect.
