Huge news for Star Wars fans today. After months of speculation, Entertainment Weekly confirmed on Wednesday that Darth Vader will be returning in the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel.
“In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we bring you an inside look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which explores just how the Rebellion came to possess the information that revealed the fatal flaw in the Empire’s super weapon. It’s a battlefield heist that fans have been imagining for nearly 40 years, described in the opening crawl of 1977’s original Star Wars, with little details scattered throughout.
“The new film from director Gareth Edwards (2014’s Godzilla) will finally fit those peices together to form a full story – revealing never-before-seen characters while also reintroducing a few classic ones. We’re confirming a big one on our cover: the galactic man in black himself, Darth Vader.”
In EW’s exclusive behind-the-scenes reveal, they provide a full run-down of the Sith Lord’s first day on set.
The sneak peek will also dive deep into other characters that will feature in the film, including new information about Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), the movie’s main character, an “outlaw who has clashed with both the Rebellion and the Empire, and now has a chance to clear her ledger of past wrongs by leading a mission for the good guys,” EW wrote.
