The Vader footage[edit]

The live-action video on the VHS tape was filmed in 1996. For the new scenes, Hasbro brought back David Prowse to play Vader and James Earl Jones to do the voice of Vader. Some of the crew from A New Hope, including original director of photography Gilbert Taylor, returned as well to shoot the scenes. The scenes would play on an hour-long tape, during which the players would be playing the board game, trying to reach their goal before the tape ends. At various points during the tape, Vader would appear warning, in a way, the players of what he was about to do. In the video, he wants to turn the Death Star II away from Endor to attempt to destroy another planet.
