Despite the film centring on the plot to steal the plans for the first Death Star just before the events of A New Hope, Star Wars fans have been wondering for some time whether Darth Vader will make an appearance in the prequel/spinoff movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now it seems we have proof that he will turn up, courtesy of a preview of the book Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – The Official Visual Story Guide. Vader can be seen front and centre in pages from the book, first spotted by the folk at Jedi-Bibliothek. There is no word yet as to whether Dave Prowse and James Earl Jones will be reuniting to play Vader. I can’t see Vader being a major character myself, but maybe I’ll be proved wrong.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on December 16.
