What Darth Vader’s Iconic “I Am Your Father” Sounds Like in 20 Different Languages

Nothing can top James Earl Jones’ booming delivery as the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars—but this supercut of 20 different dubs in various languages is a fascinating look at how different actors choose to deliver the line. “No, I am your father” sounds as intense in German as one would expect, while the actor who said it in Hebrew was far more matter-of-fact in his delivery. But my favorite might actually be from Adam Téodor, whose withering delivery in Catalan is a perfect blend of regretful and dark.
