Watch the Evolution of Darth Vader: A Journey to the Dark Side
Darth Vader is undoubtedly one of the greatest villains of all time--with one of the most botched backstories imaginable. A new video from Fandango celebrating the release of The Force Awakens on Fandango Now! and other digital platforms takes us back through the evolution of Anakin Skywalker: from adorable child to annoying emo teenager to a bad-ass James Earl Jones.



Personally, I thought Jake Lloyd got a lot of undeserved flack (not to mention that he was only a kid, and people should have cut him way more slack), but there's no excusing Hayden Christensen. He demonstrated that he was a talented actor in indies like Life as a House, but he was either miscast or misdirected or both as a young Darth Vader, and the results are dishearteningly hilarious (I could have gone my whole life without being reminded of Padme and Anakin rolling around in a field, for example). At least we'll get to see Darth Vader as he was meant to be remembered in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story later this year, as it takes place shortly before the events of A New Hope.
