There are spoilers below if they pan out for Star Wars: Anthology – Rogue One.
If you recall, back in May we told you Darth Vader would be a part of Rogue One. For some reason that’s news again this week. Now there is a report stating a few other familiar faces will be in the film.
Bloody Disgusting’s source wrote:
Ben Mendelsohn’s new Moff character is indeed the big baddie of Rogue One. The other main villains of the piece are bounty hunters hired by the Moff to quietly retrieve the stolen Death Star plans at all costs. Vader factors in once he realizes that the plans have been stolen, so he joins the hunt in a supporting role and is none too pleased.
These bounty hunters include Boba Fett, Bossk, Dengar, Zuckuss & 4LOM, IG-88, and Cad Bane, who is from ‘Clone Wars’ and is making his live action debut.
There might some new ones as well, but that’s the core group. So Fett will absolutely appear on screen again in a semi-main role before his solo film.
I have to say, it would be weird to see someone playing Dengar! I would love to see Cad Bane on the big screen, for sure. What is strange is that everything we’ve heard so far has depicted the movie being about stealing the plans and getting them to Leia and this makes it seem the movie about retrieving the plans which is very different. Both takes are pretty fun so I’m happy either way.
