When I read about this, at first, I thought it was someone trying to be funny. But they weren’t joking! Anakin Skywalker was almost the same height as Obi-Wan when they were together during the Clone Wars. After Anakin’s transformation into Darth Vader, Darth Vader was nearly three feet taller when he faced Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Death Star in A New Hope.
I’ve never thought about this, and I don’t usually find memes all that good as reference posts either, but here it is:
It seemed that Palpatine wanted to ensure Darth Vader was as menacing as possible so that his enemies would fear him even more.
Isn’t that just insane?!
