It is now thought that leading Star Wars villain, Darth Vader probably had Coronavirus.
On this May the Fourth, the original Star Wars screenwriter, Peter Thape has come forward to clear up the mystery.
Thape told Cutting News that because Star Wars was set in the future, The Empire had already gone through the pandemic and subsequent lockdown.
‘When I wrote the Darth character, he had recently recovered from Covid-19,’ explained Thape.
‘But George Lucas, the cock, said nobody would understand it in 1977 – the dick,’ added Thape.
