From slashfilm, Yesterday we finally got ironclad confirmation that Darth Vader would appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So today’s big news shouldn’t surprise you, but it will probably make you happy: Yes, James Earl Jones will return once again to voice the Sith Lord. (“A variety of large-framed performers” will fill the actual suit.) Jones originated the role in the original Star Wars, all the way back in 1977, and recently reprised the character for Disney XD’s Star Wars: Rebels.
Entertainment Weekly has an in-depth report on Darth Vader’s role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
