“I didn’t like Star Wars I, II and III at all. I think the common opinion now is they were really bad movies. …There’s no comparison with the original movies. They had a much more believable story.”

Actor DAVID PROWSE, who played (but didn’t voice) Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Oh, Darth.  You read all of our minds.

David Prowse, the man who played (not voiced) Darth Vader, says George Lucas has banned him from attending official "Star Wars" conventions. »

George Lucas is like the Steve Jobs of filmmaking.  Search your feelings; you know this to be true!!!  :-)

Friends of David Prowse, 75, say he is being punished after “annoying” George Lucas, the films’ creator.

Prowse’s website said he could not attend a forthcoming conference or any “Lucasfilm associated event”, adding: “The only thing I’ve been told is I’ve burnt too many bridges between Lucasfilm and myself.

…The Sun newspaper reported that Lucas promised 6ft 6in Prowse he would be seen and heard at the end of the trilogy when Vader’s mask is removed, but that in the end another actor was used, upsetting Prowse.
