CLASSIC IMAGE: ECHOES OF THE PAST AND THE FUTURE...
Hayden Christensen as battle-scarred Anakin Skywalker makes for an imposing figure within the interior hatch of Bail Organa's Alderaanian diplomatic cruiser, in this posed publicity image for EPISODE III that certainly caught the eye in the build up to the films anticipated release in 2005. Nineteen years later story-wise, he'll be making a more terrifying, smoke filled, body strewn entrance in a similar ship- this time a Rebel Alliance Blockade Runner - and as his grim new visage as the mutilated, mechanical suit wearing Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader.
With thanks to Chris Baker for the images.
