Star Wars: George Lucas' original plan for Darth Vader's Revenge of the Sith origins revealed


The origin story of Darth Vader could have been different except for one detail according to George Lucas' initial plans for the franchise.

While The Phantom Menace could have been very different if George Lucas had listened to the advice of the production , this time back on the epilogue of the prelogy, Revenge of the Sith . Released in 2005, the feature film filmed the fall of the Republic, crushed by the Empire of Darth Sidious as well as the advent of Darth Vader. A major chapter of the saga Star Wars which had already been thought out by the production teams and in particular by the creator of the franchise from 768. More precisely, according to The Star Wars Archives: 1995 – 1995 which follows the process of creating the second trilogy, a first reflection about the origins of Darth Vader would have emerged on the set of Return of the Jedi.

However, the plan initial was slightly different from the one finally filmed at the end of the prelogy. While Palpatine's influence on Anakin Skywalker was the same, as was Obi-Wan Kenobi's position as fallen mentor, Padmé's disappearance ( Natalie Portman ) was different. Indeed, the filmmaker imagined the Senator from Naboo to live at least a few months after the birth of her children, ensuring thus on Leia on Alderaan while Luke would have been placed in safety on Tatooine.
