Hi, I'm new. This is not a spoiler but I want to ask everyone an opinion about this: do you think Hayden had to change his accent from Canadian to British English when Anakin turns to the dark side? I think it would be really cool!!!:D

Darth Vader's accent always sounded like a forced English accent done by an American. I know it's James Earl Jones, but aren't bad guys supposed to speak British English in the Star Wars movies? :confused:

Well Sebastian Shaw, who portrayed Ani in Return of the Jedi after Vader's mask was removed, was British and had the British accent. It would be amazing if Hyden learned to speak like Sebastian for his portrayal of the evil Anakin. During the progress of the movie his accent could slowly being to transform into an English accent.

I'd also like to point out that not all English people talk like the queen :rolleyes::p! I just had to get tat out of the way before somebody mentions it, lol!
