Star Wars The Exhibition, County Hall, London - Dark Lord Darth Vader, London

STAR WARS: THE EXHIBITION features an array of items specially selected from the Lucasfilm Archives in Northern California.

Upon entering the magic world of Star wars, visitors are immediately immersed into the Star Wars universe as huge landscape images are projected to recreate the atmosphere of a particular world. Different exhibition zones walk you through the worlds of Tatooine, Naboo, Endor, Hoth, Coruscant, Kamino, Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Utapau and Mustafar.


In addition, visitors will find a projection room featuring a documentary on 30 Years of Visual Effects, which reveals just how far this art has come. Optical illusions, picture overlays, pyrotechnics, stunt tricks, and other visual and special effects are also explained in relation to the Star Wars films.

STAR WARS: THE EXHIBITION gives visitors, movie lovers and Star Wars fans a unique opportunity to learn and discover some of the secrets behind the making of this epic Saga.

Darth Vader
Darth Vader is a fictional character in George Lucas' science fiction saga Star Wars. He is the principal antagonist in the original Star Wars trilogy, who is revealed over the course of the saga to be a tragic hero named Anakin Skywalker. The character first appeared in the original trilogy of films (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi); Anakin Skywalker's transformation into Vader is portrayed in the later, prequel film, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The character also appears extensively in the series' "Expanded Universe" of novels, video games, and fan-produced works. Darth Vader is one of the most iconic villains in film history, ranked third on American Film Institute's 100 Heroes and Villains list.

Darth Vader was physically portrayed in the original film trilogy by David Prowse, vocally by James Earl Jones, and finally by Sebastian Shaw at the conclusion of Return of the Jedi. In the prequel film trilogy, Anakin Skywalker was portrayed as a boy by Jake Lloyd, then as a young adult by Hayden Christensen. Christensen also briefly portrayed Darth Vader without the character's famous costume, and finally in the costume at the close of Revenge of the Sith.

The original trilogy depicts the character as a fearsome cyborg and Sith Lord who serves at the right hand of Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), leading the brutal Galactic Empire in oppressing the galaxy and hunting down the Rebel Alliance. The prequel trilogy depicts him as a slave boy who becomes a heroic Jedi Knight and hero of the Clone Wars. He then falls to the "dark side" of the mystical Force after Palpatine manipulates him into betraying the Jedi and destroying the Galactic Republic. In Return of the Jedi, the series' final chronological installment, Vader redeems himself by helping to destroy the Empire, sacrificing himself in the process.
