Darth Vader Returns to the Star Wars Franchise!!
The latest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released last night and Darth Vader made an appearance! It also gave us a better look at the film which quite frankly seems unlike any other film in the Star Wars franchise; this is a good thing! It will be refreshing to see a Star Wars movie which feels new to us.
As good as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was, there is no denying that it had its fair share of similarities with A New Hope. So it is time to be bold, brave and innovative with the Star Wars franchise.
Rogue One is a standalone movie from the main ‘episodes’ and is set before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Watch the official trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in which a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters December 16, 2016.Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Because of this, there were always going to be rumours regarding the possible involvement of the sith lord himself, Darth Vader. Without spoiling things too much, it is pretty unlikely we will see Vader appear after Episode VI – if that spoiled things for you, WHY HAVEN’T YOU SEEN THE FILMS YET!?
Back in January of this year, rKade told you that Vader could return, well this trailer has given us the answer to those rumours!
