Above: Why Darth Vader Did Not Like The Emperor Guards – Star Wars Explained.
Darth Vader (birth name Anakin Skywalker) is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Darth Vader appears in the original Star Wars trilogy as a pivotal antagonist serving the Galactic Empire, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are the focus of the prequel Star Wars trilogy.
Darth Vader was created by George Lucas and has been portrayed by numerous actors. His appearances span the first six Star Wars films, as well as Rogue One, and his character is referenced in both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He is also an important character in the Star Wars expanded universe of television series, video games, novels, literature, and comic books. Originally a Jedi prophesied to bring balance to the Force, Anakin Skywalker is lured to the dark side of the Force by Palpatine, at the time the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic and secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Anakin Skywalker then serves the Galactic Empire as Vader at the right hand of Emperor Palpatine until his redemption after encountering his son, Luke Skywalker. Anakin Skywalker is also the father of Princess Leia Organa, the secret husband of Padmé Amidala before his fall, and grandfather of Kylo Ren.

Superman III is a British-American 1983 superhero film directed by Richard Lester, based on the DC Comics character Superman. It is the third film in the Superman film series and the last Superman film to be produced by Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind. The film features a cast which includes Christopher Reeve, Richard Pryor, Annette O’Toole, Annie Ross, Pamela Stephenson, Robert Vaughn, Marc McClure, and Gavan O’Herlihy. The film is followed by Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, released on July 24, 1987.
Although the film still managed to recoup its budget of $39 million, it was less successful than the first two Superman movies, both financially and critically. While harsh criticism focused on the film’s comedic and campy tone, as well as the casting and performance of Pryor, the special effects and Christopher Reeve’s performance as a temporarily corrupted Superman were praised.
Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. Within the original trilogy he is portrayed by Alec Guinness, while in the prequel trilogy a younger version of the character is portrayed by Ewan McGregor. In the original trilogy, he is a mentor to Luke Skywalker, to whom he introduces the ways of the Jedi. In the prequel trilogy, he is a master and friend to Anakin Skywalker. He is frequently featured as a main character in various other Star Wars media.
Guinness’s portrayal of Obi-Wan in the original Star Wars (1977) remains the only time an actor has received an Academy Award nomination (Best Supporting Actor) for acting in a Star Wars film.

Like many Star Wars fans, we hopefully waited for years to watch Disney take Star Wars to next level and reveal who Rey’s parents were, who Snoke was, and just how awesome Luke Skywalker was going to be now. And like many Star Wars fans, we were sadly disappointed by this film because it vaguely answered those questions and ruined Luke Skywalker.
We could write a book about all the things wrong with The Last Jedi and why it was a really bad movie. Instead we wrote an article about issues with the film and where it went wrong and expand on that article here in this video.
