Darth Vader ( / d ɑːr θ v eɪ d ər / ), also known by his birth name Anakin Skywalker , is a fictional character in the Star Wars franchise. [3] [4] [5] Vader appears in the original film trilogy as a pivotal antagonist whose actions drive the plot, while his past as Anakin Skywalker and the story of his corruption are central to the narrative of the prequel trilogy .

Darth Vader has become one of the most iconic villains in popular culture, and has been listed among the greatest villains and fictional characters ever. [7] [8] The American Film Institute listed him as the third greatest movie villain in cinema history on 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains , behind Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates . [9] However, other critics consider him a tragic hero , citing his original motivations for the greater good before his fall to the dark side. [10] [11]

In the first draft of The Star Wars , tall, grim general "Darth Vader" was already close in line with his final depiction, [12] and the protagonist "Anikin Starkiller" had a role similar to Luke Skywalker's as the 16-year-old son of a respected warrior. [13]

So Darth Vader’s castle is in the new Star Wars movie… how about that, eh!? My kid, upon seeing it, called out “the Tower of Orthanc!” I get that, only the Tower of Orthanc didn’t sit amid treacherous lava rivers on a planet of death and horror. Darth Vader’s home, apparently, does.

Because yes, the castle is on Mustafar, that awful world where the Sith Lord’s final transformation from Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader took place as he battled Obi-Wan Kenobi and lost several limbs, and his soul, for his trouble. (Oddly, while Rogue One goes out of its way to tag each planet’s name with onscreen titles, Mustafar is not specifically named. But Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo recently all but confirmed that’s where the castle is located . Update: The location has also been confirmed in The Art of Rogue One book and elsewhere.)

It’s a creepy scene, as we see an obscured but unmasked Vader floating in a bacta tank. The guy has never been the same since his duel with Obi-Wan, and this rare glimpse into his inner sanctum shows us how tortured his day-to-day must be, struggling to heal himself of wounds that ultimately cannot be healed. He has two Imperial guards protecting him during this vulnerable time, and a pale Imperial creep of a toadie who Google tells us is called Vaneé.
