BEHIND THE SCENES: ALIVE AND OPERATIONAL


A near barren blue screen stage at FOX Studios, Australia, September 1st 2003, is soon accompaniment to screen history, as Ian McDiarmid and Hayden Christensen perform the pivotal scene, set deep within the bowels of Coruscant, where the fully suited Darth Vader is activated. Originally as filmed, and in the first trailer for EPISODE III, Darth Vader was almost like a Frankenstein's Monster figure, his wrists bound, but this was all changed by the time of the completed final movie's release in 2005.

With thanks to Chris Baker for image assistance.

A moment missing from the digital version of the theatrical cut in 2005.
