What would it sound like if instead of James Earl Jones, Arnold Schwarzenegger were chosen to voice Darth Vader in Star Wars? We’ll never know! It’s safe to assume that we’d have much different opinions of the character.

But sometimes it’s fun to pretend we’re surrounded by parallel universes where things are much different than they are here in our own universe. So continue below now, rip open one such universe, and see what it might have been like if Schwarzenegger voiced Vader. Semi-NSFW warning for naughty words.

‘Empire Strikes Back’ Screen Test From 1978 Reveals Boba Fett’s Original All-White Costume

Boba Fett

If you’re a die hard devotee of all things pertaining to Star Wars then it might be common knowledge to you that when the saga’s iconic bounty hunting scumbag Boba Fett was first introduced (in live-action form) in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, his stylish multi-colored armor was originally intended to be an all-white ensemble, as envisioned by conceptual artist Joe Johnston.

The white variant of the costume was never used, but in 1978 prior to the commencement of principal photography on Empire, Johnston’s original design was briefly brought to life in a rare black and white screen test. You can watch a five-minute video excerpt from that test and see some images here below.

Richard LaParmentier, The Force-Choked Admiral Motti From ‘Star Wars,’ Dies

Richard LaParmentier

One of the most interesting and dynamic things about the Star Wars franchise is that it is an absolute reservoir of trivia and tidbits that its fans eat up and spit out in a rabid sense. It’s a virtual geek’s paradise of information. Like The Beatles, there aren’t many other pop cultural institutions that are so drawn and quartered to the last minute detail by its minions of followers.

So that said, we are sad to report that Richard LeParmentier, who appearing in the first Star Wars film, has died. LeParmentier is best known for playing Admiral Motti in the Star Wars: A New Hope and who was also the first character shown on screen being force-choked by Darth Vader for his defiant behavior towards him. Motti – who put his confidence behind the Empire’s new “technological terror,” the Death Star – was a character who actually had the balls and audacity to and stand up to the Darth Lord of the Sith’s authority, creating a sequence which made the iconic cinematic villain exclaim one of the most memorable lines of the franchise. When Motti tells Vader that his “sad devotion to that ancient religion” hasn’t help him retrieve the stolen Death Star plans, the Sith Lord responds by Force-choking the cocky Admiral, calmly stating, “I find your lack of faith disturbing.”

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a part of the Star Wars universe and be involved in an epic lightsaber duel between Sith lord Darth Vader and a Jedi? Of course you have, don’t be ridiculous. And now you can find out!

The Stunt People created a short first-person perspective video on a GoPro camera in which you start as Vader himself fighting a Jedi, and then eventually transition over to the Jedi’s perspective. The results are pretty awesome…if you can get past this all going down in what appears to be an office building or something. They pulled it off in a half hour, what do you want?!

Lucasfilm Possibly Developing Standalone Boba Fett and Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Movies

Han Solo and Boba Fett

Yesterday we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm were ramping up their long-term grand plans for Star Wars with the announcement that they would be developing a series of movies set apart from Episode VII and on that would focus on individual characters from the Star Wars universe, including a possible Yoda movie.

Entertainment Weekly today broke an exclusive addendum to that revelation with the news that both Han Solo, the roguish but lovable space smuggler that helped make Harrison Ford a star in the original Star Wars movies, and Boba Fett, the masked intergalactic bounty hunter who had little screen time in the original trilogy but has since become a huge fan favorite character, might also be headlining their own standalone movies.

Rumor For Your Thoughts: Will Darth Vader Return From The Dead In ‘Star Wars Episode 7’?

Darth Vader Image

Fans of George Lucas’s original Star Wars trilogy have seemed to remain cautiously optimistic (while quietly terrified) about Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and their plans to make the trilogy they thought would never ever happen just a couple of weeks ago.

This cautious optimism likely stems from Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and the movies that have been released since, including The Avengers, which has given them just enough hope that Star Wars Episode VII can bring the franchise back from that darkest and most depressing of places that Lucas’s prequel trilogy delivered it to. Bring it back from the dead.

Speaking of bringing things back from the dead, a new rumor has surfaced that Disney may be pondering bringing a one Mr. Darth Vader, who *Spoiler Alert* perished at the end of Return of the Jedi, back for the new trilogy.

Disney In Depth: Disney To Acquire Lucasfilm, An Analysis From The Disney Fan Perspective

Disney In Depth banner

We were all shocked to discover when Darth Vader revealed himself to be Luke Skywalker’s father. But we experienced perhaps even more shock when news broke this week that The Walt Disney Company was acquiring Lucasfilm, George Lucas’ 41-years-strong company. Now, Mickey Mouse will be both Vader’s and Luke’s parent, though not by blood — what an awkward “modern family” that deserves some critical examination.

Puns and jokes aside, this $4 billion purchase follows what has been a whirlwind of new ventures for Disney in just the past seven years since Bob Iger attained the role of CEO of The Walt Disney Company. 2006 marked Disney’s purchase of Pixar. 2009 signified Disney’s purchase of Marvel. And now 2012 represents news of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm. One can only imagine what the Mouse House will obtain in 2015 if this ironically-consistent pattern of buying a big entity every three years continues. These heavily-expensive, but ingenious acquisitions reflect Disney’s focus of branding and leveraging well-known and well-received properties.
