David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader at the first Star Wars Trilogy, never revealed his face during the films. He could have done it only once at "Return of the Jedi", but something happened. Another actor did that sequence and that fact marked David Prowse life for ever. Thirty years later, a young filmmaker discovers why the producers took that decision, and is determined to pay Dave a deserved tribute, almost impossible. Written by Toni Bestard & Marcos Cabotá

Lucas Film were never going to allow an alternative Star Wars ending, get over it.
12 October 2017 | by europa-97737See all my reviews

This is a fun movies for any fans of the original films....there, enough said....

.......but I had to write here when i read some of the other reviews calling foul for not including in the film the alternative ending that they filmed, I mean seriously!!!!

All it shows is how little these reviewers know about films, especially Lucas Film, who were never, never ever, ever, er ever going to allow a commercially produced film to include an alternative star wars ending.

Enough said. Good film.......and that alternative footage will one day be worth a great deal of money....once Lucas Film decides to release a special edition version 1001.
