Ask Darth Vader Questions

Over on the official site (StarWars.com) they’ve set up an “Ask Vader” page, seemingly tied into the blu-ray release. Vader stands there with his hands on his hips and rasps the answer to questions you type in the form fill block. The answers are pretty vague and clearly there are only a few stock answers being repeated but it’s really funny.

He didn't know what the buttons do.

If you leave the window open too long as I have in writing this post Vader will chide you with, “I do not have time to waste.” If you ask three questions you get a little Vader skit. It’s all very cute. Enjoy.

New Star Wars Blurb for Darth Plagueis

Random House has posted a new blurb for Darth Plagueis on their website. This one differs from the early look we got in their spring catalog.

Darth Plagueis: one of the most brilliant Sith Lords who ever lived. Possessing power is all he desires. Losing it is the only thing he fears. As an apprentice, he embraces the ruthless ways of the Sith. And when the time is right, he destroys his Master—but vows never to suffer the same fate. For like no other disciple of the dark side, Darth Plagueis learns to command the ultimate power . . . over life and death.

Darth Sidious: Plagueis’s chosen apprentice. Under the guidance of his Master, he secretly studies the ways of the Sith, while publicly rising to power in the galactic government, first as Senator, then as Chancellor, and eventually as Emperor.

Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious, Master and acolyte, target the galaxy for domination—and the Jedi Order for annihilation. But can they defy the merciless Sith tradition? Or will the desire of one to rule supreme, and the dream of the other to live forever, sow the seeds of their destruction?
