CLASSIC IMAGE: VADER, WHERE ARE YOU?


Luke Skywalker continues his deadly cat and mouse search for the elusive Darth Vader within the confines of one of the Bespin control chambers, during the dramatic finale to THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

It was nice to see this hallway reappear in the "Force-back" sequence of THE FORCE AWAKENS. Alan Dean Foster's novel of the film has Rey seeing Luke and Vader fight from a distance there, and it was rumoured back when the film was being shot that a young actor resembling Hamill's height and build had been cast presumably for the redone scene fighting Vader. I never got full confirmation as to whether this was filmed at Pinewood or not, though it would explain why Vader's costume was sighted there (beyond the possibility of being used for later reference), as seen in this Warwick Davis TWITTER pic of the time.
