Making Lord Vader Cool Again

Read full backstory at io9

Rogue One resurrected Vader in both substance and style.

The simple fact of the matter is that the Prequel Trilogy ruined Darth Vader: he went from being the imperious man in black to a whiny teenage Frankenstein even the Emperor only tolerated being around.

I didn’t think it necessary to review Rogue One (my attitude is mostly that it was OK, but not great), but I do think it necessary to applaud the film for reviving what’s become an otherwise namby-pamby image of the Dark Lord. In Disney’s new prequel film, Vader is powerful and energetic, AND he lives in a volcanic castle! Now that is pretty badass. This article explores the evolution of the castle’s design.
