Darth Vader rumoured to appear in the next Star Wars Film
For those who are unaware, we do not have to wait too long for the next Star Wars film. If fact, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released this year!
Rogue One takes place between Episode III and Episode IV. Which has prompted the rumours that we could once again see Darth Vader on the big screen.
James Earl Jones is also said to be reprising his role for his voiceover work for Vader. Jones provided his voice for the original Star Wars movies. He helped make Darth Vader perhaps the most memorable villain in film history.
A young Han Solo will also make an appearance just in time for his own spin-off film. The Han Solo Anthology Film is set for release in 2018, after Star Wars: Episode VIII.
“By all accounts the costume is so close to the original everyone is very happy and very impressed with the work done.” – Making Star Wars
