The British actor who played the original Darth Vader in Star Wars has dismissed the more recent prequel trilogy as a series of "really bad movies".
Dave Prowse, who portrayed the deadly Sith Lord onscreen for Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983), said he was unimpressed by creator George Lucas's oft-maligned attempts to tell the story of how Jedi Anakin Skywalker was turned to the dark side.
Prowse, whose voice was dubbed over with that of James Earl Jones in post-production, told the Hull Daily Mail: "I didn't like Star Wars I, II and III at all. I think the common opinion now is they were really bad movies." He added: "There's no comparison with the original movies. They had a much more believable story. »
