A Schizophrenic Galactic Empire?

star wars facts memeDid you know Darth Vader was played by a total of six actors on screen? If not, I find your lack of knowledge disturbing.

In the original three films, bodybuilder David Prowse played Darth Vader, while stunt performer Bob Anderson did the lightsaber action scenes.

Actor James Earl Jones provided the famous voice. Sebastian Shaw played Darth Vader unmasked in Return of the Jedi. In the more recent films, Jake Lloyd portrayed young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, followed by Hayden Christensen in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. So, which one is Luke’s father?

Rebel Alliance and an Alias

Luke Skywalker went through multiple changes in George Lucas’s early drafts of the script. Originally intending Luke to be female, Lucas also toyed with portraying him as a grizzled old general.

In fact, Luke’s last name was almost “Starkiller” before a last minute change. Which is good, because “Starkiller” just doesn’t seem to suit our protagonist.

The Truth About the Elusive Boba Fett

Although the mysterious bounty hunter gained cult status and was ranked #79 in Empire Magazine’s 100 Greatest Movie Characters, Boba Fett only has four lines in the Star Wars films. 

Catch all of the lines here, in less than 30 seconds:


George Lucas even admitted that had he known the Mandalorian would become so popular, he would have given him a more dignified death scene. Oh well, Boba Fett’s still a badass.

Seriously, Stormtroopers…

Though notoriously bad at aiming, Stormtroopers look freakin’ cool. So much so that there’s an international fan-based organization dedicated to Stormtrooper costumes called the 501st Legion. In its 17th year and 6,500 members strong, the group got an homage in Revenge of the Sith; the legion of blue clone troopers led by Darth Vader into the Jedi Temple was designated the 501st. It pays to be a fan.
