For months there have been rumors that Darth Vader played a big part in Rogue One, and now that’s confirmed.
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly features Rogue One on its cover, and aside from all of the other revelations the issue will bring, it will have details on Darth Vader’s appearance in the movie:
“Finally, confirmation of what fans have hoped ever since the project was announced: Vader is back. We have a run-down of the Sith lordâ€™s first day on set, and what his return means for the larger Star Wars storytelling universe.”
I also really like how they’re stressing that this movie is set 34 years before The Force Awakens. There are going to be a lot of dumb people who go into it thinking it’s Episode VIII and wondering where Finn and Rey are.
