Darth Vader returns in Roque One: A Star Wars Story


Darth Vader is back. Again (probably). It seems every round of Star Wars moviemaking must come complete with a healthy dose of the dark helmet. He is after all, arguably, Star Wars’ most iconic character.

The revelation came via an Entertainment Weekly cover story and online tease promising more to come with the latest issue’s release this Friday.

Also promised are a juicy smorgasbord of other details any diehard Star Wars fan would kill for: what sex is Yoda; do droids do it; do those red-robed Imperial Guards ever do anything other than just stand there; and why do all Star Wars plots orbit around the/a Death Star?

My only real question is will James Earl Jones return to voice the big baddy daddy?

EW reports yes, yes he will. Let’s hope so.
