STAR WARS: New Image Shows How Darth Vader's Iconic Helmet Has Changed From A NEW HOPE To OBI-WAN KENOBI

Darth Vader is iconic, and a new image shows how the villain's helmet has changed and evolved from his first appearance in A New Hope right through to Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi. Check it out after the jump!

Since first stepping aboard the Tantive IV in A New Hope, Darth Vader has been one of the most recognisable and terrifying villains in movie history. Recently, the Star Wars big bad has been making his presence felt in Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi, the latest in a fairly long line of live-action appearances that stretch beyond just the original trilogy. 

After finding redemption in Return of the Jedi, Vader returned to our screens years later in Revenge of the Sith after it was finally revealed how Anakin Skywalker descended into villainy. It would be over a decade before we'd see him return in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and, as noted, Vader has since been unleashed in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The point is, we've seen a fair bit of Vader over the years, but did you ever realise how much his helmet has changed? A new comparison image shows the diffrences, and while it's never changed dramatically, each era of storytelling has made subtle design changes that altered Vader's appearance to at least a small degree. 

Needless to say, the version of the helmet from The Force Awakens is most different, though that's because it melted after Vader's body was burnt at his funeral by Luke Skywalker on Endor.

Ultimately, Vader is a character whose appearance fits into the "If it ain't broke..." category, but that makes it no less interesting to see how it's evolved over the years. We don't know when or where we'll see the villain next, though there have been rumblings of a solo outing following the success of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hayden Christensen, meanwhile, is set to appear in Ahsoka, though we're assuming that will be as Anakin rather than Vader. 

Oh, and if the name of the person who Tweeted out this image rings a bell, it probably should! Daniel Logan played a young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones and later lent his voice to the character in The Clone Wars. Since then, he's appeared via archival footage in The Book of Boba Fett and even voiced the bounty hunter in Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
