The recent Star Wars franchise, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” showcased the much loved and original characters to the fans of a new generation. There were many characters that popped up in this latest movie but Darth Vader’s character did not get an opportunity to pop up.
Throughout the film, the influence of Darth Vader could be felt by the audience. This is especially true with respect to the mission of Kylo Ren. However, the character does not make an appearance in the film.
It has been suggested that Vader’s ghost would not have been an entirely redeemed Anakin. Images that have been presented indicate that a furious spirit who blends equally with Vader and Anakin.
An image also indicates that Vader’s mechanical components have eventually become a part of his body instead of a suit forth his survival. This version sounds really cool, though.
However, this is not the only time suggestions of Darth Vader’s younger version have popped up as the original trilogy continues.
A book also indicates that Vader makes an appearance as a Force ghost for the “first time” in “The Force Awakens” that makes us feel that the alterations that were made in the special edition of the DVD are not regarded canon.
According to Cinema Blend, the prequels to the “Star Wars” might have represented a black eye for the series, their existence has been kept alive by the recent Star Wars movie’s creative forces.
There is not only Darth Vader’s potential appearance in the movie “The Force Awakens but also an inclusion of a short voiceover cameo made by Ewan McGregor in the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi. It takes place during a brief vision quest of Rey.
We all know now that “The Force Awakens” is quite a crowded film. In fact, the likes of Luke Skywalker also get pushed away from the spotlight of the film.
Though, it would really have been great to see Darth Vader once again, perhaps it worked best this way by keeping the focus firmly in place for the new set of characters. However, having said so, let us hope that we get to see Vader in the future episodes.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is now showing in theaters.
