Entertainment Weekly has revealed exclusive details on the dark lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. Vader is now 100% confirmed for Rogue One and James Earl Jones will reprise his role as the voice of the famous villain. Another interesting tid bit is that Vader and Directer Orson Krennic hate each other in the film, much like the relationship with Kylo Ren and General Hux in The Force Awakens.
Vader will have little screen time, but I would imagine any scenes with him will blow fans away.
Much like in Star Wars Rebels, many members of the Rebel Alliance have never seen Vader, he is much more of a myth to some. He is also looming in the backround of the battle for now, though I do think we will see him in several battle scenes in the film. No word yet on who is actually wearing the suit in the film but it’s been reported that it’s British actor Spencer Wilding.
