At Spike TV’s 2011 Scream Awards, iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader won the Ultimate Villain award. But even someone as villainous as the Dark Lord of the Sith has fears — of his creator George Lucas and his tendency to digitally revise cinematic history.
As the heavy-breathing black-cloaked Sith lord came out to accept his award, he expressed his worry about Lucas, saying he could “digitally enhanced you in the DVD release.”
That’s when Lucas come out on stage, surprising Lord Vader, who quickly tells his creator how happy he is to see him. Lucas goes to give Vader the Scream Award, but psychs him out, holding the spiked object just out of the helmeted Vader’s view. But there’s only so much a Sith is going to take — Vader eventually goes to Force-choke Lucas.
While Vader walked off the stage, Lucas stood behind a minute to thank everyone for honoring Lord Vader and referred to the villain while plugging the upcoming Star Wars 3D theatrical release: “Just wait til you see him on the big screen in 3D next February.”
Watch the video here below of the Scream Awards Ultimate Villain segment, which was presented by Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.
