Rumor: Darth Vader to appear in ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’


I suppose it makes sense to cram the eternally-fucking-marketable Darth Vader into a film that takes place during his reign. Right?


We are likely to learn bit more about Star Wars: Rogue One at Comic Con this week, but before we do a new scoop has landed online that reveals that Darth Vader will appear in Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology film. Hit the jump to find out more about this Darth Vader Rogue One rumor.

Birth.death.movies has learned that Darth Vader will appear in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, but he will not be the film’s main antagonist. According to the report, the darth Sith lord will “be working behind the scenes, pulling strings and will appear onscreen” … “via viewscreen or holo projection or something.” We don’t yet know if the character will actually appear in person in the story somewhere — you have to understand these scoops come from insiders who only know pieces of the film at this point.
