The website Birth.Movies.Death is reporting that Darth Vader will make an appearance in the “Star Wars” spinoff movie,” Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.”
The movie will look at a group of resistance fighters who come together to steal the Death Star plans. This would lead up to events in “Star Wars: A New Hope” where Princess Leai gives R2-D2 the plans to the Death Star.
Birth.Movies.Death is also reporting that Darth Vader won’t be the chief villain. He will be working behind-the-scenes and appear only as a hologram.
Felecity Jones will headline the cast that also includes Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna. Gareth Edwards — director of the 2014 release, “Godzilla” — is at the helm of the movie.
The movie is schedule to be released in December 2016.
