The Original Voice Of Darth Vader!

| Filed under: Film FlickersWacky, Tacky & True

This is soo strange!

As most know, James Earl Jones provided the voice for the now iconic villain Darth Vader in the Star Wars films, but apparently, while filming the original movie, the man who wore the suit on set, David Prowse, recited all of the dialogue himself!

Check out (above) a clip of what Star Wars would have been like if they had used the original audio track!

Darth Vader would have been so refined and mild-mannered if they had kept it like this!

    This is actually well known that the man in the suit did the dialogue I think a few of the guys in the suits made a big deal about their voices not being used

    What, you didn't know that, Mario? Have you been living under a rock or something?! It's a very well-known fact. That said, they shouldn't be mocking David Prowse like this, he deserves more respect, even if he only played Vader's body.

    David Prowse has a west-country (Bristol) English accent, not Scottish.

    It's a well known fact within the Star Wars fan community that Dave Prowse did the voice of Darth Vader while they were shooting the movie. In fact, there's an old story about how he took his family to the premiere of the movie and they actually didn't believe that he had played the character, because his voice wasn't used.

    Oh, thats right, if it was on YouTube, then the whole world MUST know about it…Besides that, no one was mocking, just commenting on an interesting fact. Relax.

    I think Lucas found the perfect voice for Darth Vader with James Earl Jones and I was hoping he'd add his voice in "Revenge of the Sith." I nearly jumped out of my chair and yelled "YES!" when I heard that familiar, menacing voice. Thanks Mr. Lucas for addding it to the film. "Revenge" wouldn't have been the same without James Earl Jones.

    Is it amazing to think that James Earl Jones grew up with a horrible stutter and hardly speaking from middle school to high school?
