Darth Vader is in Star Wars: Rogue One

It had been rumoured, but now EW have confirmed that Darth Vader is going to be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and I couldn’t be happier. Hopefully, there will be a new trailer showing Vader in all his glory. I really hope we see him involved in a huge battle.

Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters) is directing Rogue One, which tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and is slated for a December 16, 2016 release.

The film stars Felicity Jones, Diego LunaBen Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed. 

Minor spoilers ahead.

You can see the EW cover below and it shows the taller, slimmer walkers known as AT-ACTs hauling cargo, and flatter, fang-like interceptors known as TIE Strikers. The issue will also feature new information about Jyn Erso (The Theory of Everything’s Felicity Jones), the 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. It’s also personal – her  father, played by Mads Mikkelsen, is a scientist whose knowledge is sought by both sides.

I am so excited for this film.
