    Now they've said no Jedi are in the movie Rogue one, but they didn't say anything about the Sith!

    If Darth Vader came make his way on to the season 2 of Rebels, we'll for sure see a Darth Vader cameo on board the Death Star, he's only the more iconic star wars villain in star wars history on the big screen, Disney will make a way for him to return even if its only briefly.

    Another possible hint was when Disney bought Lucasfilm, and shortly after Darth Vader visited Disneyland, even going on some rides. Indicating "I have returned".

    If not its a missed opportunity.

    Vader had his time to shine. Bring in a new villain.

    I wonder if the story will cover any ground on Geonosis, since that's where the plans are canonically said to have come from, or whether they'll include any of the Legacy story about the plans being tested in the Maw?

    I am pretty sure that by this point the Death Star is no longer near Geonosis. If you haven't already, you should probably read Tarkin and get up to speed.

    We may very well hear his name, but we won't see him...IMO.

    I also kind of doubt we'll see him, but I don't think it's totally out of the question. Just watched the Celebration panel last night, and one of the aspects to this movie will be the seemingly insurmountable odds our protagonists will face, with no help from the jedi. Vader's presence definitely counts as insurmountable odds!

    But yeah, overall I don't think we'll see him. I think he'd be out of place in this war movie.

    i was just thinking about whether or not Vader will be featured in this film! the fact that he's made it to Rebels makes me think he could make an appearance here too. seeing as to how he was hot on the Tantive IV's heels at the beginning of ANH you'd think Vader had some part to play in this.

    @Cyborg Voxx I don't remember them saying there would be no Force users, just no Jedi to help the Rebel cause.

    I took it as they were implying all characters will be common people with no force powers.

    Looks to me like Vader's presence will be very important, whether felt or seen. I can't see that changing down the road at all.

    Darth Vader is one of the most iconic characters in the history of motion pictures. I'm sure Disney wants him back on the screen, and what a great way to market the movie - especially since this one won't have Ford, Hamill and Fisher. Plus, it makes perfect sense for Vader to be involved in a story revolving around the theft of the Death Star plans.

    Since they are such iconic characters, it would be hard to show them without their seeming to be the central players - which they're clearly not, since it's already been said that the film won't be about force users. So my guess is: Vader and/or the emperor are mentioned by imperial soldiers (to lay down context for the events of the film) but never shown.

    I think that Vader could be involved. The start of ANH seems to have a sense that Vader is a bit in the doghouse. He doesn't feel like the Emperor's right hand man. In the past it was speculated that Vader recently had some spat with the Emperor that explains this. But it makes sense that the stolen plans and the failure that brings to bear is important.

    That said they may not want Vader failing on screen.

    Well, the thing with Vader in ANH is that at that point Lucas was basically treating him as just another bad guy. In fact, in some of the previous drafts of the script, Vader was little more than the GFFA of a Mafia enforcer.

    And if you look at ANH without the context of the stories that Lucas created later on, Vader seems subordinate to Tarkin. He doesn't even identify with the Death Star project as something he was necessarily even a part of. "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed."

    It would seem to me that it'd almost be more in keeping with what we saw in the original film to have Tarkin factor into Rogue One than Vader.

    They could always do something like this for a Vader cameo.

    and I do agree with Tarkin that one actor looks kinda like Tarkin, and he'll most likely be the main villain.

    It would be interesting to have Vader as the unstoppable force. The Rebels are trying to get the plans but are chased by the unstoppable Vader.

    Rebels arrive do well. Vader enters crap hits the fan. Rebels run and run and run. No one can face him toe to toe.
