The statue reproduces the original costume of Darth Vader (in Italian Dart Fener), the villain of "Star Wars", a series of films created by director George Lucas. On the base of the statue there is the original signature of David Prowse, the actor who played the role. Star Wars is one of the most famous film sagas, starting with the movie “Star Wars - Episode IV. A new hope "(1977). The other two titles of the first trilogy are: “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) and “Return of the Jedi” (1983). In 1999 Lucas shot a prequel trilogy. The titles are "The Phantom Menace" (1999), "Attack of the Clones" (2002) and "Revenge of the Sith" (2005). The Walt Disney Company in 2012 bought the rights of the entire series and started the production of a new trilogy. This sequel is about what happens after the last episode of the original trilogy of 1977. And here are the titles: “The Awakening of the Force” (2015), “The Last Jedi” (2017) and “The Rise of Skywalker” (2019). The films became a cultural phenomenon that has influenced several generations, and which continues to thrill both adults and children, from 1977 to today.
Fun fact – When Luke Skywalker jumps into space to save himself from Darth Vader, in the movie “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” (1980), he doesn’t actually scream. In the remastered version of 1997, they added the sound effect of the scream. This was not appreciated by the fans due to the fact that Luke not screaming emphasized that he didn’t fear death. In the following versions, the scream was removed and this detail remains solely in the version of 1997.
