DARTH VADER actor David Prowse is supporting fans who have started a petition to see him back on the big screen for the final installment of the Star Wars film series.

Prowse has watched on as original CHEWBACCA star Peter Mayhew, and Darth Vader voice actor James Earl Jones accepted invitations to return, but his own invite has yet to arrive because he has fallen out with creator GEORGE LUCAS.

The miffed actor muses, "A petition's already being set up by fans in protest and I said I'm happy to support it. If there was any honour in the film business they should come back to me, but I don't think there is. They could at least offer me a cameo."
