I think there's no chance a Vader doesn't happen, because it will do $1 Billion on opening weekend. (Ok, that's an exaggeration, but probably not by a whole lot.) The question about a Vader-centric movie I would have is that they really get so much juice out of Vader in so little screen time, if you made him a main character in a movie, do you lose that? Phantom Menace - in the suit, like 30 seconds. A New Hope - 8:06 Empire - 11:51 RotJ - 13:44 Rogue One - 3:00 Obi-Wan show - I didn't time it and I haven't found anybody who has published it yet, but I'm going with less than 10 minutes total, probably less than 8. It's amazing, you could argue the biggest villain in the original trilogy appeared for a grand total of 34 minutes of 6 hours and 28 minutes. That's an awful lot of time for the villain to not be on screen. But Lucas (and company) got an enormous amount of play out of those 34 minutes. The longest Vader has ever been in a movie has been RotJ, at 13:44. Could you get the same Vader effect if you made him the central character of a movie? I'm not sure. The one idea I had which I think COULD work would be to use the timeline leading up to and including Rogue One, with possibly some crossover scenes, except told from Vader's perspective. And the closing shot could be Vader entering Leia's ship from A New Hope. You could also re-do some of the stuff from Rebels, again, where he sees Asoka again, but it would be from his perspective. That way, you're not really inventing or changing cannon. But expanding on already existing stories, and telling them from a "a different point of view." I'm sure that movie would never get made, but it would be interesting, at least to me. I mean, it would basically be an excuse for a visual spectacle, which I would be down for, without destroying any of the existing cannon. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
