After watching Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back for Star Wars Day, I noticed something very interesting. When Obi-wan Kenobi told Luke Skywalker to go to The Dagobah System and search for Yoda, there were some familiar creatures found on that planet that you can still find on our blue planet Earth.
In the scene where Yoda is training Luke and he tells Luke that he won’t be needing his weapons for when he goes further into the swampy terrain, we see a lizard(2:46), snakes(3:01 and 3:21,) and a komodo dragon(3:17). Take a look at the video below:
Now, I know they were probably put there due to budget or just laziness in the scene, but what if it was on purpose? What I’m getting at is that what if The Dagobah System is planet Earth? Of course it is earth in the far future. After the majority of the humans have either left the planet and populated other planets or became extinct. I mean after all, the story did happen “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...”
And the cool thing about Dagobah is that it is home to an evil place called Dark Side Cave. In Dark Side Cave it has all the evil energy of the force of the Dark Side(obviously). This is the same place where Luke went to face his fear, which was the embodiment of Darth Vader. When he decapitates Darth Vader, he sees himself underneath the mask as a foreshadow that Vader is in fact his father. Hey! What if it’s another foreshadow of what’s going to happen to Luke in [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158)? If so, I have a bad feeling about this.
What do you think? Is The Dagobah System the future fate of our own planet?
