E: Star Wars came out when I was twelve so the movie and the media that followed was a big part of my life. Even though it was James Earl Jones providing the voice it was also the physical presence of Prowse that gave Darth Vader such memorable menace.

I honest-to-god thought he had already died so I was bracing myself for the news that James Earl Jones was no longer with us. Though James Earl Jones was in other iconic roles and was famous enough that only referring to him as "Darth Vader" instead of his name would really not do him justice to the point of being almost offensive, so I should've known better.

But anyways, RIP David Prowse. He was the guy in the Darth Vader suit and that does actually mean something. You can tell just by watching Episode III and Rogue One that it was NOT the same guy in the suit, so he gave a distinct performance and left his mark on the role.

They had to install a dick flap in the Vader suit so he could gently caress during breaks in filming.

It got bad during the second and third movies, they struggled to film Vaderís scenes because everybody kept wanting to gently caress Darth Vader.

remember when princess Leia was supposed to be about 12 years old and her name is literally "Lay ya" and begrudgingly gets it on with the space hunk racer but the studio made them cast Carrie Fisher? then when lucas took a break from star wars he did American Graffiti which is about a 12 year old girl who gets it on with a street hunk racer it was all very fresh and new and not a creepy pattern from George "I really like the idea of 12 year old girls loving older men" Lucas.

e: sorry my time line was screwed up Lucas made American Graffiti before Star Wars so he was just setting the stage for not having a predilection about an entire universe of per-pubescent girl loving.

If you all would indulge a blatant plug for another thread of mine, if you're interested in some hot goss related to Lucas and Star Wars I compiled a bunch of highlights from the infamous biography that George Lucas didn't want you to read, Skywalking: The Life and Films of George Lucas.

(It's not anything quite so scandalous as the quoted above but it gets pretty amusing)

More directly related to the topic, Prowse and Lucas have held a grudge against each other for decades as Prowse felt Lucas was stringing him along with false hope that he might some day get to be seen on-screen as Vader unmasked, and Lucas apparently caught wind that most plot leaks to the press were coming from Prowse, and Lucas gradually distanced Prowse from any Star Wars or Lucasfilm -adjacent projects until he was essentially disowned entirely (I think he was even kept from making appearances at conventions and such) and as far as I know Prowse was bitter about it until the end.

Or for that matter what Padme did to Anakin which is basically having your baby-sitter rape your little boy all of which is fine for George Lucas though he's cool like that. He's got light sabers and cool cars and poo poo.

e: "Is Padme alright?!" No she's not she's a child molester enabled by the Jedi priesthood, Anakin and you're a victim, and we're still going to blame you for her death to shame you. "NOOOOOoooooooo"

Him and Spielberg were quite excited at Indiana Jones banging Marion Ravenwood when she was an underage character.

Fun to watch the first Indiana Jones movie now. Lucas wanted the backstory to be even more explicit.
