The Third Sister Gave Darth Vader His Cleverest Idea In A New Hope

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series reveals that the Third Sister gave Darth Vader his cleverest idea

for locating the Rebellion’s secret base in A New Hope.

The rescue of Princess Leia was one of A New Hope’s most exciting sequences,

but it was not a complete victory for the Rebellion and its members.

Darth Vader allowed the heroes to escape the Galactic Empire’s superweapon

and tracked them to the Rebel base, a trick that he apparently learned from one of his subordinates.

Although Darth Vader is one of the most powerful beings in the galaxy during the events of the

original Star Wars trilogy, he is also a talented tactician, outthinking his enemies more often than overpowering them.
