James Earl Jones Back as Vader

14 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The voice of Darth Vader is back - actor James Earl Jones will recreate the breathy tones of the supervillain in George Lucas' sixth Star Wars movie which will go before cameras next year. Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker, who becomes Vader in the film, but his voice will be replaced with that of James Earl Jones. Jones created a storm in the original Star Wars trilogy when his voice was used to replace that of British actor Dave Prowse, who played the evil Vader. »

Original Vader Aims To Return

28 May 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Despite arthritis, crutches and one useless arm, the man who played the original Darth Vader is determined to make his mark on the final Star Wars film. Life-long body builder David Prowse, 66, donned the famous black helmet for George Lucas' first three episodes, and is eager to return for the historic final installment, which begins shooting next year. He says, "I still definitely want the part again. I'm going to have an operation on my hip in September and then I'm planning to go back to the gym. I should be fit and ready by next year. I have such a large following that if George Lucas offered the part to someone else, I'm sure fans would boycott the film." And Prowse is convinced he is in with a chance. Hayden Christensen, who plays Darth's Jedi alter ego Anakin Skywalker, is nearly one foot shorter than Prowse was as Vader. »
