Darth Vader Confirmed To Appear In 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'
It was hinted at in the film's first trailer, but it's finally been confirmed... YASSS!
The badass Sith Lord himself will be starring in the spin-off movie, which is set before A New Hope (the original film in the franchise, but the fourth film if you were watching them chronologically, which we would obvs advise).
Entertainment Weekly were the ones to break the exciting news, adding that they have a 'run-down of the Sith lord's first day on set' and what his return means for the universe.
Feast your eyes on the cover below:
It's not been confirmed who will be playing the former trainee Jedi, with 85-year-old James Earl Jones (who voiced Darth Vader in the original films) thought to be in the running.
Set many years before ANH, the prequel film will focus on Jyn (The Theory Of Everything's Felicity Jones), who's tasked with stealing the plans for the Death Star.
It's the first spin-off film in the Star Wars series and is directed by Gareth Edwards (2014's Godzilla).
