In modern explanation the "past lightspeed" bit has been retconned away.
Instead there are the hyperdrive classes with a reverse scale. The higher the number the slower the ship.
So a Class 1 hyperdrive is one of the fastest, but the Millennium Falcon has a 0. Twice as fast as a Class 1. Just how fast a Class 1 is is never really explained. Revenge of the Sith," given the extremely intimate relationship he had with these two, it seems ridiculous that Darth Vader would not recognize them. Given the amount of interaction Obi-Wan Kenobi had with the two robots in the prequels, it would also make no sense for him to not recognize them in "Star Wars Episode IV: He merely told Luke he never remembered "owning" a droid, which was indeed the case.
Considering that he lied told from a "certain-point-of-view" about "Vader betrayed and murdered your father" to prevent Luke from prematurely learning the truth he couldn't handle yetit seems very plausible that he ALSO was pretending to not recognize the droids, for the same reason. Seems like a retroactive explanation for George Lucas' mistake, but a decent point, regardless.
Owen Lars probably should have also recognized the robots, but as he didn't have quite as intimate a connection, it's perhaps plausible that he simply forgot. Flickr user cabeza 4.
- 5 Plot Holes You Never Noticed In 'Star Wars'

Skywalker's training with Yoda is supposed to take a long time. In reality, it can only take a few hours. A main story arc in "Star Wars: Despite a brief detour in a meteor, the Millennium Falcon seems to get to Cloud City in relatively short time, and since the two scenes are linked that also means Skywalker learned how to be a Jedi in an afternoon.
Granted, in point two, it was mentioned that it should take a long time for the Millennium Falcon to travel, but plot holes shouldn't be used to explain away other plot holes. Don't encourage black holes into "Star Wars. A New Hope, that heralds a shot or mention of the dreaded Death Star. The theme is mostly associated with double-reed instruments, primarily the English horn. The four signature notes first appear in the score to Star Warsnotably at the end of the scene in which Luke finds his aunt and uncle dead.
It was originally introduced in the "Binary Sunset" scene, but Williams was asked to rewrite the cue, and in doing so removed the references to "Dies Irae".
Revenge of the Sith during the scene in which Jedi are slaughtered across the galaxy. More than other Star Wars themes, the March has attained an iconic status in the Western consciousness as a general "evil theme", and as such is used to portray power at public events, sometimes seriously, sometimes with tongue in cheek as in sporting events. It has been used on multiple occasions to introduce a scene featuring the "evil" Montgomery Burns on the animated comedy The Simpsons.
Musical features include relentless martial rhythm and dark, non-diatonic harmonic support. In the original trilogy, "The Imperial March" also represents all that is the Empire; therefore, it is nearly equivalent to a galactic anthem.
Williams retrograded the theme for the prequel trilogy, subtly embedding it in "Anakin's Theme" and the evolution of the Republic represented by the clone troopers into the Empire. It is heard with progressive prominence through Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, signaling critical points in Anakin's downward spiral to the Dark side. In the March's final rendition, accompanying Vader's death in Return of the Jedi, Williams reverses the effect of the theme, by means of reduced orchestration and volume.
It ends with a cadence of solos strings, fluteclarinethorn and, ultimately, harp as Vader expires. A statement of the theme appears in "The Force Awakens" when it is revealed that Kylo Ren is speaking to the charred remains of Vader's helmet. During its original appearance, this melody first is played by a solo French horn. Closely associated with his teachings and abilities, though can be related to Luke's retention of those lessons as well.
Used more sparingly in the Prequel Trilogy, though certain moments, especially Yoda's departure from Kashyyyk, highlight the theme quite prominently.
It is briefly heard in the film E.

The Extra-Terrestrial as E. This was most likely included as a humorous nod to the Star Wars movies, as John Williams is the composer of both soundtracks.
Prominent in several scenes on Hoth, Dagobah, and during the climactic "Hyperspace" cue at the end of the film. A version is played in a minor tune during the scene that C-3PO gets shot. It is played sparingly in "The Empire Strikes Back" in scenes strongly involving the bounty hunter. Some speculation exists of a secondary motif for Fett, occurring as he escorts frozen Han through the halls of Bespin. This theme heard in the horns appears in scenes unrelated to Fett, which throws association into debate.
It may represent a 'struggle' by the rebels to escape the Bespin city, which would qualify it as a secondary Bespin theme. Some have asserted material associated with Fett also turns up in Episode II as well, though whether the material in question bears anything more than coincidental similarity to his original motif is debatable.

It is also played during the added Jabba scene in the Special Edition of Star Wars, and in a slightly disguised form before the pod-race in The Phantom Menace. More generally, it portrays the dark side itself. Consists of an ominous melody built over alternating, chromatically related chords and often sung by a male choir. In The Phantom Menace, and Attack of the Clones, it is used to represent the growing power of the mysterious Darth Sidious, most notably in the scene in the Naboo capital at the end of the first film, where it is performed in a major key by a child chorus as celebratory music symbolically representing the hidden victory of Palpatine's overall plan.
In Revenge of the Sith, it is played as Sidious' true identity is unmasked and as he lays the foundation for the Empire. In Return of the Jedi, it is used to represent the Emperor, and plays whenever he is on screen.
It is played at the Ewok village, during the forest battle and in the End Credits of Return of the Jedi.

The theme for the link between Leia and her brother Luke in Return of the Jedi. Heard only twice in the actual film; the extended concert suite that Williams composed for it is clearly greater than the sum of its uses. In some ways a more mature theme than the outwardly romantic "Princess Leia" and "Han Solo and the Princess" themes. The theme signifying the victory of the Alliance and the culmination of the entire saga.Johnn Williams - Luke & Leia Theme
Its music has various animal calls, flutes and is played mostly at the Ewok village where everybody celebrates. The original music was replaced by this theme in the Special Edition, in order to accommodate new scenes on Tatooine, Naboo, Bespin, and Coruscant.
Composed for the prequel trilogy First appearance in Episode I: An ostensibly innocent theme that contains seeds of "The Imperial March". It is used in a similar fashion in several early episodes of the subsequent television series.
The episode also introduces an ascending variant of the theme, using the first few notes, as a motif for the family on Mortis—most prominently heard during establishing shots of the temple.
A version of the tune plays three times in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Although the Jedi and the Force are mentioned, no Jedi appear in the film, thus the slightly altered version of the piece. It also appears while Kylo Ren Ben and Rey are using physical Force bond connection for the first time touching hands in the stone hut after Rey's mirror discovery in the cave.
Kylo Ren's theme and Rey's are mixed together before the Force theme comes in near the end from, "The Cave" track. For the third time in a row, the Force theme closes the movie as a part of the finale.
