Anakin Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker
  • "Anakin will fail his challenge but it will cost him his soul." - GL
  • "...if you start with Star Wars, then Vader's just the villain, and that's it. But you don't realize that he's a human being, that he's got problems you don't realize that he could have been saved, that he was tricked and can be resurrected." - GL
  • Vader's armor does not come from several different characters. - PH
  • "The scene where Anakin does actually become Vader is pretty good. I mean, I like it. It's a little in the vocabulary of?I don't know how much I want to give away?but it's in the vocabulary of a time - of the 1930s and 1940s. It's a pretty neat little thing, I think, and hopefully it's going to work." - GL
  • "It's mostly Anakin in Ep3 as opposed to Vader" - GL
  • "George Lucas says 'When Anakin goes bionic -- that will be in the last five minutes of episode three -- they will hear you."- JEJ
  • James Earl Jones talks about his role being about 5 minutes in length, "right after Anakin goes bionic and falls into a volcano." - JEJ
  • In this film, you realize, it's more about Anakin making the wrong choices. He's given a glorious moment by George -- I'm so happy with part of the script -- where he truly has to make a choice. In the end, I think that's a smarter way to go than a slow transformation. It's more tragic this way." - Iain McCaig
  • "We will see Anakin doing more evil things a la slaughtering the Tuskens." - RM
  • "We will see more interaction between Anakin and Palpatine." - RM
  • Palpatine discusses a new assignment to Anakin in the Chancellor's Office. - OS
  • "We will see the emperor and/or Anakin make use of the dark side of the force with lightning, chokes and more." - RM
  • Hayden will look quite rugged and weathered after having fought in the Clone Wars for years. - OS
  • Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor show up in full wardrobe. Anakin's is in one of his Episode III looks -- according to the slate, they're shooting Hayden's "tidy" look. His "messy" look will come later. A scar added by makeup isn't reading well enough on the monitors, so Nikki Gooley and her crew thicken it up to make this particular trophy of the Clone Wars more visible. - OS
  • "The current plan is for Anakin to have the same metallic hand he had at the end of AOTC." - JK
  • "Vader may have more screentime than originally anticipated." - RM
  • The major focus is the breakdown in friendship between Obi-Wan and Anakin. - SW Insider
  • A scene will include Obi-Wan, Anakin, Palpatine, Mace, and Bail Organa - as well as a swarm of Senators and planetary representatives, alien and human alike. - OS
  • "There are new Starfighters being built for Anakin and Obi-Wan." - GB
  • Anakin and Obi-Wan will be in an environment with "extreme wind". - OS
  • In one scene called a "Lobby" and "Hallway", Anakin and Obi-Wan will be walking down a corridor and will join R2-D-2 at one point. Anakin and Obi-Wan will also be in an "Elevator" scene together. - OS
  • One scene will be in "Padm?'s Apartment" and we will see Padm?, Anakin and C-3PO. Anakin will be shirtless in the scene and we will see his exposed mechanical arm. - OS
  • We will see Anakin and Obi-Wan together on a landing platform on Coruscant. - OS
  • In a Jedi Council scene, we will see Mace Windu discussing new assignments with Hayden and Ewan. Yoda, Agen Kolar, Stass Allie, and Saesee Tiin are among those present. - OS
  • "Hayden's acting and portrayal of Anakin turning to the dark side amazes me. And to see Hayden wielding a lightsaber ("or three") is a treat. The audience will get goosebumps when they see the portrayal and betrayal by Anakin." - AD
  • Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padm? are in a scene described as "major" and "grim".- OS
  • Anakin will fly a Jedi Starfighter. - OS
  • The reason for Anakin's facial scars will be explained in the novels that take place "between movies". - OS
  • Anakin will be wearing a headband while in his starfighter that is similar to the one used by Obi-Wan in the Jedi Starfighter in Ep2. During the scenes, Anakin's lines will be calling to other pilots, describing the battle around him and other reactions. - OS
  • In an elevator shaft set Anakin will wear a wire rig to simulate a Force-assisted jump. It will be a two-stage jump - leaping up onto one landing and then propelling upwards and away. - OS
  • Three words that Darth Vader speaks in Ep3 are "I don't fear..." - RM
  • The movie will explain all of Anakin's injuries except for one (the facial scar as noted in the recent HS set diary). - RM
  • There will be a scene when Anakin is given the name of Darth Vader and an explanation as to why he was given the name and what it means. - RM
  • It won't be the special effects that make the Obi-Wan/Anakin duel so thrilling, it will be the betrayal. - RM
  • Rick felt saddened, shocked, angry and betrayed after reading the story of Anakin's downfall. - RM
  • Obi-Wan and Anakin will have four scenes underwater which won't amount to much screentime. - OS
  • Vader will have lines that make it clear that he is with the Dark Side of the force. - PH
  • The lightsabers used by Obi-Wan and Anakin are ones we have seen before. - PH
  • Darth Vader will prove to be the "most deadly character" in the film. - PH
  • Anakin and Obi-Wan's costumes will have discolorizations, cuts and burns from fighting and from their environment. - OS
  • Anakin's costume will become darker as the film moves forward. - TB
  • On Sept 01, at 5:48 p.m., an unmistakable and iconic dark form was captured on camera. The first take was mesmerizing and everyone applauded. - OS
  • Early in the film, Anakin and Obi-Wan will wield lightsabers as partners fighting side-by-side, united against a common foe. - OS
  • Anakin will "save" Obi-Wan at one point during the film. - PH
  • Palpatine has several scenes with Anakin. - PH
  • There will be no doubt that Anakin is Darth Vader as seen in the film. - PH
  • Anakin knows Padm? is pregnant and expecting. - PH
  • "Anakin will cover just about every fighting style in Episode III." - NG
  • Ewan and Hayden are the actors with the most screen time. - PH
  • Anakin's fall is shocking. - PH
  • At the beginning of the film Anakin and Obi-Wan are still good friends and we will see they have grown even closer since battling in the clone wars together. But Anakin has been building another friendship too... - PH
  • When asked what color Anakin's lightsaber will be during the duel with Obi-Wan, Dan said to watch Ep4. -DG
  • Currently, there is no digital version of Darth Vader but there may be one designed in the future. -DG
  • In one scene, Anakin will be running from unseen dangers. George told Hayden he did not need to say his lines, only to look back and run like hell. - OS
  • Anakin will slide down the length of a ramp while attempting to control his descent and using his comlink for help. - OS
  • Anakin will be a Jedi Knight in Ep3, no longer a padawan. - PH
  • Anakin will meet with a Jedi instructor who is training 2 padawans. One padawan is a very young male and the other is a teenage female. - OS
  • We will immediately know why Obi-Wan referred to Anakin as "the best starpilot in the galaxy". -PE
  • "Anakin becomes pure evil....." -HC
  • Anakin is more or less in the entire film, in every scene in the movie. The character arc is very specific and graduates to the dark side nicely. It was a great part to play. It's definitely darker in tone but I turn into Darth Vader, so how could it not be?" - HC
  • Anakin does not have any scenes with Chewbacca. -HC
  • "Darth Vader's fighting style was the toughest [to choreograph]. The skill is mostly balance and having your feet in the right place." -NG
  • "You'll hear the (Vader) breathing. I do get to finalize my character arc, and where that ends up most people know." -HC
  • Anakin's fighting style will certainly change as the character goes further towards the dark side. -NG
  • Nick has seen Hayden in the Vader costume. -NG
  • Darth Vader will talk to people via hologram in Ep3. - OS
  • Nick's cameo Jedi character has long hair and will be seen facing off against Anakin. -NG
  • We will see Anakin committing more dark deeds, similar to the Tusken slaughter. The tastes and sensibilities of Star Wars are rooted in the 30s, and that might not satisfy the more graphic wants of modern audiences. That said, I was surprised by some of the things that are planned for in this movie. - PH
  • There are references to love (Anakin & Padm?) in Ep3. - PH
  • Anakin will no longer be having petty arguments with his master. Anakin is very self-assured now. - PH
  • Vader will not use any of the buttons on his chest plate. - PH
  • There are important scenes between Anakin & Padm? that play out between them that inform us about the nature of their marriage. Remember, it is secret, so the moments they have together will be snatched when they can be, against a background of a busy galaxy at war. - PH
  • Anakin's grisly demise at the end of the duel is set to be one of the most chilling moments in the entire saga. -NG
  • "Ewan McGregor can just do anything. I've known Ewan for years and whatever you give him to do, he can do it. I would have thought that no one could have become better than Ewan--after Phantom and Attack of the Clones, he just looked like the best. But Hayden learned fast and is now leagues ahead of everybody. He is terrifying!" -NG
  • Anakin's Jedi Starfighter has red coloring. The cockpit and the undercarriage are flat gray and gray-white. - PH
  • Anakin & Padm?'s relationship and the maturity thereof does indeed play a role in the birth of the children as well as Anakin's downfall. - PH
  • "You will probably feel sorry for Anakin before he makes his bad choices and turns to the darkside and also at the end of Ep3. But I'm a big advocate of [taking] personal responsibility, even in the face of temptation." - PH
  • Anakin is among the main characters with stunt work demanding enough to require digital doubling and mock heads of the character, created in exact detail. - OS
  • For the scenes of Anakin and Palpatine in the Chancellor's office, George brought down the warmer values that were on stage, making everything a bit cooler, a bit more blue. It occurs during midday and he wants to provide a greater contrast to the warmer scenes that occur when Padm? and a group of concerned Senators meet with the Chancellor at dusk. - OS
  • Anakin will not meet or interact with the Naberrie family. - PH
  • Anakin has only three real costume changes, not counting weathering or damage to his 'standard' outfit. - PH
  • In a way similar to him being a Padawan and not understanding why he isn't a Knight yet, the Episode III Anakin is a Jedi Knight who doesn't get why the Council hasn't granted him the status of Master yet. - PH
  • Anakin's slave transmitter was removed when he was freed as a little boy. It is not in Ep3. - PH
  • Anakin has become a rockstar poster boy hero in the Clone Wars. His actions are meant to be of legend. - PH
  • None of Anakin's injuries that require him to wear the Vader suit are from the result of Power Couplings. - PH
  • There is a scene where Anakin and Palpatine discuss the ongoing war in Palpatine's private office. - OS
  • Anakin rushes through the theater lobby and up a grand staircase, weaving his way through the crowd of 50 extras that make up the theater lobby crowd. He goes into the entrance of Palpatine's private viewing box. - OS
  • Anakin and Padm? share a quiet and tender moment in Padm?'s apartment. Padm? discusses plans for her, Anakin and a family on Naboo. - OS
  • Anakin joins Padm? on the balcony in her apartment as she brushes her hair with a silvery brush. - OS
  • In one shot, Anakin must run from a platform and leap at the camera, jumping out of frame. - OS
  • Anakin uses his mechanical arm to cling onto a thick cable while holding his lightsaber in his left hand. - OS
  • A sequence during the opening space battle has been cut from the film. In the sequence, Anakin and Obi-Wan's flight into the enemy capital ship lines was to be interrupted by a protective squadron of tri-droids that would harass the starfighters. - OS
  • One scene involving Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padm? necessitated George's call to be "faster and more intense." - OS
  • The entire elevator sequence aboard the Trade Federation cruiser had to be re-edited so that the door is no longer sliced through by a lightsaber. Instead, Obi-Wan and Anakin now emerge from a normal sliding elevator door. - OS
  • One shot involves Anakin standing at a railing, looking at the world around him. George tells Hayden, "Think about how terrible a place the universe is and how you can fix it." - OS
  • In the opening shot, the camera pans down to a massive Republic cruiser which fills the screen. Two tiny Jedi starfighters [Anakin's and Obi-Wan's] buzz into the frame. - OS
  • In one scene, Anakin and Obi-Wan are surrounded by battle droids. - OS
  • A new sequence has been added to the script, an exchange between Anakin and Mace. This scene was originally set in the Jedi Council, but was transplanted to a new environment, the never-before-seen gunship hangar bay of the Jedi Temple. - OS
  • One scene is a walk and talk between Anakin Skywalker and Bail Organa, with C-3PO and R2-D2 tagging along in the background. - OS
  • Shots filmed today include a concussed Obi-Wan returning to consciousness on Anakin's shoulder, Anakin stopping a dangerous descent with a Jedi grappling hook, and the Jedi duo swinging to abrupt stop into a vacant elevator lobby. - OS
  • A crash-mat is on the set to catch Hayden as he stumbles from a kick [by Count Dooku]. - OS
  • Another shot had Anakin slam against a wall in the General's Quarters. - OS
  • Hayden has another walking shot. George tells Hayden, "You're walking with grim determination. Grim reaper determination." - OS
  • There is another scene with Anakin running down a corridor. He rushes into a chamber. - OS
  • There is a scene of dialogue between Anakin and Palpatine in the Supreme Chancellor's office. - OS
  • In one scene, Anakin sits in Yoda's quarters, talking about matters pressing heavily upon his shoulders. Yoda's advice is very similar to his original speech to young Anakin in Episode I. Yoda speaks to him about attachment, possession, premonition and mortality. Anakin sits on a big circular chair. Shadows are cast on their faces from the blinds. - OS
  • During additional photography, some shots are gathered during the Anakin vs. Obi-Wan duel of lightsabers clattering to the floor. - OS

  • During the opening shots, Obi-Wan's and Anakin's starfighters are flying synchronized. - OS
  • During the opening space battle, Anakin and Obi-Wan are part of a rescue mission. - OS

  • Chancellor Palpatine praises Anakin Skywalker as they walk through a cavernous corridor within the Galactic Senate building. - OS
  • Standing before a frieze depicting an ancient event, Palpatine wistfully recalls better days to his guest, Anakin Skywalker. - OS

  • In the beginning of the film, someone other than Anakin and Padm? know of their marriage. - PH

  • Anakin spends some time in the Chancellor's private office. - PH

  • Anakin does not have a Padawan. - PH

  • In one scene, Anakin Skywalker carries an unconscious Kenobi through a veritable maze of traps and hazards; to facilitate filming this physical activity, a much-lighter-than-Ewan replica was built for Hayden Christensen to carry. - OS
  • "The controversy is going to be that people expect some horrible, horrific thing to happen to [Anakin] that caused him to [become Darth Vader]. It's much subtler. It's something that everybody faces--when you're looking at yourself, you can see your good and your bad, and say, "Is this a selfish choice or is this a compassionate choice? And once I get something, what would I do to keep from losing it? Would I make a pact with the devil to keep it?" - GL
  • As the battle over Coruscant rages, Anakin sees his wingman covered in nasty buzz droids and moves in to help. - OS
  • "So at least Darth Vader is in [Episode III]. Only for two minutes, but he's in it." - GL
  • Anakin Skywalker tries a risky maneuver to stop insidious buzz droids launched by Separatist ships from destroying Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi starfighter in the skies over Coruscant. - OS
  • Anakin is a Jedi Council member in Episode III, and it isn't without controversy. - PH
  • Palpatine helps Anakin secure a place on the Jedi Council. - THC
  • Obi-Wan and Anakin do not speak to each other about Qui-Gon at any point in the movie, but other characters do bring him up. - PH
  • The expansive corridor that leads from the Senate landing platforms to the inner chambers of the massive edifice are lined by huge marble columns. The long shadows thrown by the heavy pillars are the perfect place for concealment, the ideal hiding place for a Senator to spy on her secret husband as he arrives to yet another hero's welcome. - OS
  • Misunderstanding and mistrust cloud a conversation between Padm? Amidala and Anakin Skywalker. - Insider #78
  • I [Bai Ling (Senator Bana Breemu)] have scenes opposite both Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman. - BL
  • When asked if he'd been called for any voice work in Episode III, James Earl Jones replied with a "not yet". - JEJ

  • Anakin and Obi-Wan pilot their Jedi starfighters straight into a battle with an armada of Separatist ships high over the planet Coruscant. - OS
  • Super battle droids aboard a Trade Federation cruiser fire laser blasts at a pair of interlopers -- two Jedi on a rescue mission. - OS
  • Anakin faces some momentous choices in Episode III: Does he remain true to the Jedi Order ... or is the allure of the dark side just too strong to resist? - OS
  • Anakin Skywalker -- the Hero With No Fear, indomitable warrior in the Clone Wars, and the bringer of balance to the Force -- is far more than what an ancient Jedi prophecy described. - OS
  • One scene, which takes place in a Jedi Temple hallway, has sunlight spilling through the windows, creating stretches of light and darkness along the path of the Jedi. In this scene, Obi-Wan asks an unsettling favor of Anakin, further raising doubt in the conflicted young man. - OS
  • Only Yoda, Obi-Wan, and later, Anakin seem to figure out the force-ghost trick. - PH
  • Anakin finds his loyalties divided between the Jedi Council and his trusted mentor, Palpatine. Even as a distraught Padm? tries to help Anakin deal with his conflicting emotions, the young Jedi is in a quandary, pulled more and more into the beguiling embrace of the dark side. - THC
  • Now secretly married, Anakin's moody and volatile ways frighten the young Senator, Padm?. In her Coruscant apartment, she awakens one night to find that a troubled, sleepless Anakin has left their bed. - THC
  • Padm? first appears in Episode III on Coruscant, awaiting the return of her secret husband whom she has not seen in months. "The first time we see her, it's sort of a mysterious scene where she's hiding behind pillars, waiting for Anakin to finish talking to Bail Organa." - TB
  • "One of the themes throughout the films is that the Sith Lords, when they started out thousands of years ago, embraced the Dark Side. They were greedy and self-centered and they all wanted to take over, so they killed each other. Eventually there was only one left, and that one took on an apprentice. And for thousands of years, the master would teach the apprentice, the master would die, the apprentice would then teach another apprentice, the master, and so on. But there could never be any more than two of them, because if there were, they would try to get rid of the leader, which is exactly what Vader was trying to do, and that's exactly what the Emperor was trying to do. The Emperor was trying to get rid of Vader, and Vader was trying to get rid of the Emperor. And that is the antithesis of a symbiotic relationship, in which if you do that, you become cancer, and you eventually kill the host, and everything dies." - GL
  • "[The Prequel films] are all so very different, Episode III is very dark and much more demanding, we all know that Anakin becomes Darth Vader but to actually see this transition is very painful. So when you have such a dark story to work with it demands you as an actor to work harder. So even though I haven't seen the film yet I would suppose that the last one is my favorite." - NP
  • Anakin starts the film in a yellow-trimmed fighter, whose lines are strongly evocative of the TIE fighter designs still to come. - OS
  • Anakin's amazing piloting abilities make the difference in a daring mission to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, who has been kidnapped by Separatist forces. - OS
  • There is a new sequence of Anakin running to his Jedi speeder, lowering the canopy, and blazing across the sky to his destination. Upon arrival, he springs out of the cockpit and continues his dash. - OS
  • Anakin does not start the film as a Jedi Council member. - PH
  • The shot of yellow-eyed Anakin from the teaser trailer is from the actual movie, as opposed to being a shot created specifically for the trailer; no shots were created just for the trailer. - PH
  • Anakin does not have a disturbing future vision of himself in Episode III. - PH
  • In one scene, Anakin pulls up in his protractor-shaped speeder past a line of limousines, rushing up a staircase filled with Coruscant glitterati, tearing down a burnished hallway, and finally arriving at the Chancellor's executive box. - OS
  • There is a shot of Anakin peering out from under his heavy hood. - OS
  • Anakin runs through the entrance to the Chancellor's offices on his way to meet with Palpatine. - OS
  • As Obi-Wan and Anakin infiltrate a Trade Federation cruiser, Obi-Wan hands R2-D2 a comlink. In subsequent scenes, the Jedi stay in contact with Artoo via the comlink. - Insider #78
  • "There's a new scene between Anakin and Padm?, which has to do with their relationship, their love." - RM
  • "...there is a scene between Anakin and Yoda, wherein Yoda again tells him about how a Jedi shouldn't have personal attachments, such as love." - RM
  • "Anakin's ship wears a customized paint job of yellow and unpainted metal, which saves weight and hearkens back to his 'first' combat experience with a Naboo fighter in Episode I." - RC

  • "There's a line of training through Darth Tyranus and Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Anakin. You can follow that line, and there's an aggressive fault in that line. Mace isn't of that line, and that allows you to give him unique talents." Homing Beacon
  • On the fiery young world of Mustafar, a heat-blasted industrial facility serves as the backdrop for an epic duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. The grueling battle progresses throughout the structure, from expansive platforms to claustrophobic corridors destined to be scarred and pitted by the whirling blades of light. - OS
  • Anakin and Obi-Wan's Jedi starfighters lead the charge against massed Separatist forces in the skies high above Coruscant. - Insider #80

  • In one scene, Obi-Wan and Yoda discover the devastation brought about by Darth Vader, the newest Dark Lord of the Sith. - Homing Beacon #127
  • "Obi-Wan knows his padawan is responsible for [recent devastating events]. It's like a parent knowing that his child has become truant but not knowing the extent of the damage until it was too late. Obi-Wan knew his child was responsible for all this in the blink of an eye, and as a Master, he is responsible for his Padawan." - DL
  • Anakin and Obi-Wan make their way across a narrow steam pipe overlooking a roiling cauldron of lava. - OS
