"Secret" Vader in Episode III

Author
Time

There is one (well, 2) basic level mistakes in the article about C. Andrew Nelson.
“His convincing performance as Vader lead to him appearing as the character very briefly in footage inserted into the 1998 special edition of The Empire Strikes Back; a scene in which Darth Vader basically gets on and off a shuttlecraft.”
Of course, it’s 1997, but he only did the Cloud City shot. The landing was from ROTJ, so it is Prowse. Naturally Sebastian Shaw was in the suit as well, and also the one black ILM guy for the lightsaber insert in ROTJ. Maybe other “secret” ones as well.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

I guess with all the hype over Hayden donning the Vader suit, they didn’t want to publicize this at the time.

They missed out Daniel Naprous who was the actual Vader in Rogue One. Spencers Vader scenes were all reshot ( the inner cape was underneath the chest plate incorrectly during Spencers shoot) so , when doing the reshoots, they got Daniel Naprous to play Vader. Only one shot of Spencer remains in the movie

Good to know who to blame. R1’s sassy, swishy-walking, finger-wagging Vader is almost as embarrassing as the M.C. Hammer-dancing one at Disney…

I’m almost afraid to ask.
