Yeah and i think you are fucking dumb>dude just appears outta nowhere>gee i wonder who could it be?>could it be anakin skywalker, father of our beloved hero Luke, who we as a viewers have just seen get his redemption?>nah no way, i gotta stop and think about this guy identity for a minute>me being brainlet means everyone else was brainlet>pic rel is my face
Ive seen OT for the first time after seeing TPM, but not AotC and RotS, so at that moment i wasnt familiar with Hayden's Anakin like, at all. I was being little boy, with almost no knowledge about culture or art at that moment. And even I, a fucking preschooler, had no problem with understanding that this old man is Anakin at the exact moment i saw him. Dont project your stupidity on others.
Necessity of this change is another problem, and imo it wast needed at all, but it didnt spoil that moment.
