Some fans filmed Prowse under the mask in a recreation of that scene a few years back, but supposedly it was deleted from the documentary itself because they were afraid of the wrath of Lucasfilm. That’s what I heard anyway…
What I don’t get, is if Prowse was “banned” from Star Wars essentially because of Lucas, since he’s no longer in charge anymore, why can’t they bring him back in? What did he do that was so unforgivable? We need Triple H to mend the fences and bring him back. As opposed to waiting until he passes away and then pretending like they were his best friend all along… reconcile before it’s too late!
I never liked the CGI Hayden Christiansen addition, and I prefer how it was originally but if you’re going to make a change, I think the idea of Prowse makes sense. But here’s another cool thing, he’s approaching a more appropriate age (if he hasn’t already) of the Anakin character in that scene, so maybe there’s another option.
And for old time’s sake, how about a version with James Earl Jones 😉 and Bob Anderson. WE ARE VADER!
