According to Making Star Wars, a "Darth Vader Dream Team" has been assembled for his ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY appearance, and that the Vader costume "as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope has been meticulously recreated to match A New Hope perfectly." The site has also learned that James Earl Jones will be back as the voice of the iconic Star Wars baddie, although he will be "played by a new person that has never played him before."

The site doesn't have any solid info on how big of a role Vader will have in the spinoff, however they believe he will be a "player in a few scenes and something to fear for the heroes." Are you excited Darth Vader might be returning to the big screen?

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is set to open on December 16, 2016.
