Jackson), Palpatine enlists him as his Sith apprentice, Darth Vader, after promising that the dark side holds the power to save Anakin's pregnant wife, Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), from dying in childbirth.

Just then, Anakin's former teacher and friend Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) emerges from Padmé's ship and challenges Vader to a fierce lightsaber duel. At the duel's climax, Vader loses his limbs to Obi-Wan's lightsaber, and slips too close to the lava, burning nearly to death. Palpatine's medical assistants encase him with his trademark black armor and mask, with mechanical breathing apparatus and voice processor built-in to sustain him. When Vader regains consciousness and asks for Padmé, Palpatine tells him that she died as a result of his (Vader's) anger (in reality, she had died of a broken heart after giving birth to his children, Luke and Leia).

Darth Vader enters the Tantive IV in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (the first time audiences saw Vader on film in terms of the movie series' making), Vader is charged with recovering the stolen plans of the Death Star and finding the Rebel Alliance's secret base. He captures and tortures Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and is there when Death Star commander, Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) destroys her home world of Alderaan. Shortly afterward, he fights a lightsaber duel against his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness), who has arrived at the Death Star to rescue Leia, and cuts him down, turning him into a spirit in the Force. He then encounters Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) during a battle over the Death Star, and senses in him a great strength in the Force; this is confirmed moments later when the boy destroys the battle station. He was about to shoot Luke down using his TIE fighter, but a freak collision with his wingman, sparked by the surprise appearance of the Millennium Falcon, piloted by Han Solo (Harrison Ford), sends Vader spinning into space.

The Empire Strikes Back

In Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Vader captures Leia, Han, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) on the planet Bespin to lure Luke into a confrontation. He strikes a deal with the administrator of Cloud City, Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) to give Han over to the bounty hunter Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch), and has Solo frozen in carbonite. Luke, who has been partially trained by Yoda (Frank Oz), duels Vader, but is eventually defeated when Vader uses his lightsaber to sever Luke's right hand at the wrist, disarming him in the process. Vader then reveals his true identity as Luke's father and offers Luke the chance to overthrow Palpatine and rule the galaxy as father and son. Luke refuses, instead allowing himself to fall off the weather platform to an uncertain fate. He is sucked into a garbage chute and rescued by Leia, Chewbacca, Lando and C-3PO.

By this time, Luke has nearly completed his Jedi training, and has learned from a dying Yoda that Vader is indeed his father. He learns about his father's past from Obi-Wan's spirit, and also learns that Leia is his sister. On a mission to the forest moon of Endor, he surrenders to Imperial troops and is brought to Vader. Aboard the Death Star, Luke resists the Emperor's appeals to his anger and fear for his friends, but snaps when Vader uses the Force to probe into his mind, and learns of Leia's existence, and threatens to turn her instead. Enraged, Luke nearly kills Vader, severing his father's right hand. He controls his anger at the last minute, however, as he looks at Vader's cybernetic hand and then at his own; he realizes that he is perilously close to suffering his father's fate.

Angered, the Emperor attacks Luke with Force lightning. Luke writhes in agony under the Emperor's torture, begging his father for help. Unable to bear the sight of his son in pain, Vader breaks free of the dark side, turning on his master and throwing him into the very core of the Death Star, where the evil emperor explodes in a fury of dark energies.

Expanded universe

  • Vader may make a number of cameo appearances in the upcoming Star Wars live-action TV series, which is slated for a 2009 release, and will run approximately 100 episodes.
  • As chronicled in James Luceno's book Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, Vader sheds his identity as Anakin Skywalker shortly after the events of Episode III. In the months afterward, he systematically pursues and kills the survivors of the Great Jedi Purge (except for Obi-Wan and Yoda); in the process, he fully embraces his new identity as a Sith Lord and disavows any connection to his former Jedi self. The novel also reveals that Vader plans to eventually overthrow Palpatine and rule the Empire himself, and that his primary motivation for betraying the Jedi Order was that he resented their supposed failure to recognize his power.
  • In the comic book Vader's Quest, he hires bounty hunters to bring him information about the pilot who destroyed the Death Star, ultimately meeting his son Luke for the very first time. Later on, in the Alan Dean Foster novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye (which takes place shortly after the events in A New Hope), Vader meets Luke for the second time and combats him in a lightsaber duel on the planet Mimban. On Mimban, Vader is nearly defeated by Luke, who severed his right arm. Vader suffers massive injuries after falling into a pit.
  • In The Star Wars Holiday Special, Vader searches for the Rebels responsible for the destruction of the Death Star, almost thwarting Han and Chewbacca's goal of reaching Kashyyyk in order for Chewie to reach his family for Life Day.
  • Vader also has a prominent role in the 1996 novel/comic/video game Shadows of the Empire, which takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. In the story, Prince Xizor, leader of the crime organization Black Sun, plots to overthrow Vader and take his place as the Emperor's second in command. The story also reveals that Vader knows there is some good left in him, and that he wishes to use the Force to return his physical appearance to that of his former self.
  • Vader also makes occasional appearances in Dark Horse's Star Wars comic books set between the movies, especially Star Wars: Empire.
  • In the Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn, it is explained that Darth Vader is the first representative of the Empire to find the Noghri, a race with exceptional combat skills, whom he manipulates into serving as his personal commandos and revering him as their master. Later, Vader transfers their services to Grand Admiral Thrawn.
  • It has been confirmed that both Vader and Yoda will be playable characters in the upcoming Soulcalibur IV.

Portrayals

During filming of A New Hope, David Prowse played the role of Darth Vader. Prowse was originally given the choice between the roles of Chewbacca and Darth Vader, but chose Darth Vader because he said "people would remember him." To his dismay,[4] after filming, James Earl Jones was hired to read Vader's lines over Prowse's performance. This was in part due to Prowse's strong West Country accent. Series creator George Lucas eventually chose Jones to provide Vader's voice for all of the films in the original trilogy. Jones has since been closely identified with the role.

The character of Darth Vader was also played by several stunt doubles, most notably fencing instructor Bob Anderson. Anderson handled all of Vader's fight sequences in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Mark Hamill, who portrayed Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy, noted in a 1983 interview in Starlog #72: "Bob Anderson was the man who actually did Vader’s fighting. It was always supposed to be a secret, but I finally told George I didn’t think it was fair any more. Bob worked so hard that he deserves some recognition. It’s ridiculous to preserve the myth that it’s all done by one man."

For Revenge of the Sith, Hayden Christensen, who had played Anakin Skywalker since Attack of the Clones, wore the Vader armor rather than Prowse. However, as Christensen was shorter than Prowse, certain perspective trickery was used to make him seem as physically large as Prowse: a slightly scaled-down costume was created for him; the costume had extensions built into the boots and helmet; and some of the shots of Vader standing next to Palpatine were filmed using forced perspective. No one was credited for the briefly heard voice of Darth Vader at the end. James Earl Jones, when specifically asked if he had supplied the voice, either newly or from a previous recording, told Newsday, "You'd have to ask Lucas about that. I don't know".[6] Hayden Christensen (born April 19, 1981) is a Canadian actor. ...

Cultural figure

Due to his central role in the Star Wars films, the character of Darth Vader has entered the public consciousness as the quintessential villain. His powerful bass voice, coupled with his heavy mechanized breathing, is easily recognizable, and the American Film Institute's list of the greatest movie villains placed him third, beating the Wicked Witch of the West and coming just after Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates. He has been parodied by such figures as "Duck Vader" from Tiny Toon Adventures, "Darth Benkyou" in an episode of Doraemon, "Dearth Nadir" as played by Gonzo on The Muppet Show's "Pigs in Space" sketch, "Girth Plotz" from an episode of Animaniacs that parodied the first trilogy, "Darth Koopa" from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, "Dark Laser" from The Fairly OddParents, an episode of Codename: Kids Next Door where President Jimmy dressed in black and, now devoted to evil, takes over the school, country singer Darth Brooks in Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and Chef from South Park as Darth Chef in the episode "The Return of Chef". Marty McFly in Back to the Future (dressed up in a radiation suit) pretended to be "Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan" in an effort to get his science fiction-loving father to date his mother. In the beginning of Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy, a speech is being given at a comic convention on how Darth Vader is a metaphor for how poorly sci-fi treats black people, including noting that Vader (the "Blackest mother in the galaxy") revealing himself to really be a "crusty old white guy". The character the Huntsman from American Dragon: Jake Long was inspired by Darth Vader and a scene from the episode Act 4 Scene 15 parodies the scene in Empire Strikes Back where the back of Vader's head is exposed briefly before he redons his helmet.

In Mel Brooks' 1987 Star Wars parody Spaceballs, Darth Vader is parodied as Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis), a short man with an over-sized Darth Vader-like helmet, who occasionally opens it to reveal his face. Instead of using a lightsaber, he has a ring that gives him abilities similar to The Force (called the "Schwartz"). The Schwartz ring allows Dark Helmet to produce a lightsaber-like projection at the tip of the ring. He is given to making double entendres about his helmet and his ring sword ("I see that your Schwartz is as big as mine. Now— let's see how well you can handle it"). The film also pokes fun at Darth Vader's revelation to Luke Skywalker in Empire Strikes Back; during their climactic battle, Dark Helmet declares himself to be main character Lone Starr's "father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate," before admitting that this means that they have no familial ties whatsoever.

  • On June 22, 2006, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney referred to himself as the Darth Vader of the Bush administration. Discussing the need for vigorous pursuit of intelligence, he said to CNN's John King, "It means we need to be able to go after and capture or kill those people who are trying to kill Americans. That's not a pleasant business. It's a very serious business. And I suppose, sometimes, people look at my demeanor and say, 'Well, he's the Darth Vader of the administration.'" [7] Jon Stewart put on a Darth Vader helmet to "talk" to Dick Cheney as a "kindred spirit" on The Daily Show on January 25, 2007.
