Alternate Names: Lord Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith
Actor: David Prowse (character), James Earl Jones (voice)
Darth Vader is the Galactic Empire's number one executive of evil.
After the destruction of the Death Star, he made it his mission
to seek out the Rebels who had caused this disgrace. He has also
been known to keep the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett at hand
and in his employ.
The scene in the Holiday Special with Chief Bast and Vader talking
as they walk down a hall aboard what is supposed to be a Star
Destroyer is actually a scene from the Death Star that was cut
out of A New Hope. This is the only place this scene can now be
found. For the Holiday Special, James Earl Jones recorded new
dialogue for Darth Vader, and new lines were overdubbed for Chief
Bast that would pertain to events in the Holiday Special. Vader
also makes a quick appearance in the cartoon speaking over a communication
screen to Boba Fett, who is referred to by Threepio as "his
right hand man".
Quote: "I want the Rebels located and identified... if it
means searching every household in the system!"
