This adorable "Star Wars" lightsaber battle between dad and toddler has the best twist ending ever
Whether you’re a “morning person” or not, being woken up by one of the greatest villains in the Star Wars universe would be a shock to anyone. Luckily for all of us, there is a fearless 2-year-old Padawan (or Jedi in training) named Sebastian who has just shown us how to mind-control the Sith Lord and put him in his rightful place.
In an adorable video Rob Lopez posted, he shows himself waking up his toddler son as none other than Darth Vader himself.
He makes a thorough checklist of all the things one would need to be the convincing evil leader. Including (and as he notes “most importantly”), written permission from his wife.
With everything ready, he walks into his son’s room the next morning completely convincingly dressed like Dark Lord himself and awakens his son with the prodding of his terrifying light saber.
Now you may be worried about this toddler, but fear not. He was quite obviously well-trained and ready for this moment because his initial reaction is not fear or shock. He simply assesses the situation, picks up the light saber next to him, and immediately begins (adorably) defending himself.
But that’s only where this little one’s charm begins. After playing with Darth Vader at his own game (a short light saber battle), Sebastian gets a much better idea. And he uses his superior mind control powers to convince Vader to do his bidding.
That’s right. He sets down his light saber line of defense and insists Darth Vader read to him. And guess what? It totally works.
Within no time (and with very few words being exchanged) the young Jedi has the master of the Dark Side right where he wants him… in a rocking chair reading stories to him and playing fun morning games.
The perfect blend of fearlessness and cuteness in this little kid is enough to make your heart explode. And it makes us wonder if only a young Luke Skywalker had gotten the chance to work his mind control on the one obvious weakness of Lord Vader, maybe the the entire Star Wars storyline would have been different.
But, at least we can all sleep safely knowing there’s one fearless Jedi who can keep Darth under total control.
