"Thou" in "Star Wars"

The occurence of "thou" (or rather "thy" which is the possessive case) in a "Star Wars" film is another example for present-day use of this "extincted" pronoun.

In "the Empire strikes back", Darth Vader asks the Emperor: "What is thy bidding, master?"
He does so although the Emperor has addressed him with "You may rise, my servant".

When the "rule" that superiors are addressed with "you" and inferiors with "thou" is true, Darth Vader mixes it up.
