Sorry, but there's some information from characters you don't need. Do really ever want to see Vader as a whinny kid who can't do shit? No, you want him to be a force choking hardass at all times. Having Anakin as a 9 year old is an altogether terrible idea. Did make a cool poster though.


While I liked the version of episode 1 you proposed, I have to disagree with this statement.

It shows that Vader had the capacity to turn away from the Dark Side in episode 6.

If they never show a sympathetic Anakin then how are you to buy into his turn in the final chapter?

You don't need to show him as a little kid to do that. Just because he's a hardass doesn't mean he can't be a good person. Just have it where his force powers bring out the worst in him, but to be kind and sympathetic in other aspects of his life. For instance if someone screws him over or he's dealing with a horrible person, I don't see anything wrong with force choking someone like that. What should happen is have Obi Wan to warn him never to do it again, and he does it a few times throughout the series to get information or threaten people he perceives as the enemy or getting in his way, until finally he goes to far and chokes Padme to death. He has to be tempted by the Dark Side really, and he should unconsciously admire the Dark Side. If done properly, Anakin shouldn't realize he's turned into a member of the Sith until he wakes up in his suit with 3rd degree burns.

Way too much of a whinny bitch to be Vader. Vader is to be a threat one-on-ten. Joffrey isn't much of a threat without his crown.

I have a mancrush on Fassbender but he also would have to look kind of like Mark Hamill

A Fassbender and Portland child would not look like Luke Skywalker.

Kid Anakin should have been Spencer Clark who was Lucius in Gladiator

heath ledger probably ccould have done it.

Its fricking Star Wars the should have pumped everything they had into that movie.

I'm not all that picky about it to be honest. As long as they're the same race, I'll let appearance slide in favor of an incredible performance.

Apparently James Franco was high up on the list too. I think he could have done a good job.

That's what I'm aiming for really. Couldn't help but think when I watched that film in theaters that that should have been Vader's and Obi Wan' relationship, although not quite as rushed.

I get what you are saying, but part of the fall of Vader was always going to be tied to the cunning of Palpatine and his masterful deception. Now, they definitely should have made Anakin less bitchy about it, but I do like the path they chose.

Not sure about the kid. But James Franco would have been better as the older Anakin.

I felt the same way when reading Harry Potter and how Voldemort evolved. Much better evolution to an evil person.
