Darth Vader all set for his big screen outing with ‘Rogue One’

Johannesburg : The ultimate villain of the ‘Star Wars’ universe, Darth Vader, is all set to come back with a menacing appearance in the prequel film, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.’

Reportedly, the movie will reveal “never-before-seen characters while also reintroducing a few classic ones,” reports Channel24.

“We’re confirming a big one on our cover: the galactic man in black himself, Darth Vader,” the report added.

Rumours about Vader’s return began in April with the release of the movie’s first trailer.

The first standalone ‘Star Wars’ story, ‘ Rogue One,’ which is set just before ‘A New Hope’ – the original film in the series, stars British actress Felicity Jones alongside Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker.

The 100-second teaser featured a retread of John Williams’ familiar Star Wars score, including a snippet of the infamous Imperial March, used to signify Vader’s approach.

However, there has been no revelation on which actor will be portraying Vader in the film which is due to hit theaters in the United States on December 16. (ANI)
