    Per the EW story today:

    "The new film from director Gareth Edwards (2014’s Godzilla) will finally fit those peices together to form a full story – revealing never-before-seen characters while also reintroducing a few classic ones. We’re confirming a big one on our cover: the galactic man in black himself, Darth Vader."

    With this film and what he's done in Rebels, we are finally getting closer to the idea of what the PT was going to be when it was announced.

    I'm sure James Earl Jones will be doing the voice, since he already does it for Rebels.

    It make sense because Darth Vader is looking for the rebels to recover the stolen plans in the ANH.He stop Princess Leia spaceship....remember.I think R1 will be made wisely...:).

    He's only A V.O. so he could be announced at the end since he's not needed...it could be a similar situation to Ewan McGregor where he recorded lines literally WEEKS before the movie was released...unless it's an animated movie JEJ would only really need to record lines for a week or so sort of like how the actor who voiced Megatron in the first ""Transofrmers" did it in a week or so.

    When was he spiced up?

    The most brutal Vader I know was in one of the new books (title escapes me), which something the mass audience hardly knows (or actually they don't). In the comic Vader Down he was brutal, but there was minimal bloodshed (it was implied).

    @JeffG. Thanks for bringing it over!

    At 85, James Earl Jones will also reprise his role as Vader’s foreboding voice, while a variety of large-framed performers will embody the character behind the mask.

    ...

    “There is a lot of palace intrigue going on in the Empire, with people conspiring to move up the ranks and sabotaging each other,” producer John Knoll says. “There’s not a lot of loyalty there.”

    In other words, Krennic and Vader aren’t friends. They’re barely allies, and Krennic is understandably threatened by the Sith Lord. “Vader doesn’t really play by the rules,” says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s chief of story development. “He’s present in the military structure, but he’s not beholden to it. He’s not accountable to anybody, really, except Palpatine.”

    Nice.

    Don't think they will...the article today mentions there are no new images, because he's used "sparingly" in the new film. But apparently has one key moment where he "looms large"...

    AKA

    He will be in 2 or 3 short scenes, like 2 or 3 min of dialogue with Director Krennic where they bicker, argue over the mission, threaten each other, etc...

    And then bust out the lightsaber in the big fight at the end, with troops flanking him as he cuts through rebels. (cue the money shot)

    I also suspect he will off Director Krennic with a good force choke as the 2nd to last scene of the film, and then storm after the plans, setting up ANH.

    I can only pray we see Lord Vader choke out one of his imperial officers one more time. I'm getting choked up thinking about it.:cool:

    I have a feeling that we'll hear the Empire mention Vader's name a lot but only see him once or twice, hopefully one of those times will be him in action. Maybe, he gets angry at Krennic for losing the DS plans, and kills him!

    Well I think it was in the comics that we find out that it was Vader that let the rebels get away with the plans in hopes that it would lead them to the rebel base. We all know how that turned out for him.........


    So I am betting that we will see him here and there in the movie and probably a lot at the end. Possibly even attacking some storm troopers in the hopes of letting the rebels get away with the plans.

    "Darth Vader lives!"

    I'm glad he's not in it much. He'd take the spotlight away from Jyn and the team and that's not good.
