    I think there was a noticeable difference in James Earl Jones' voice in Rogue One. I'm thrilled that he returned because he did an amazing job, as always. I'm sure a lot of that is due to age. And he sounded fine, but there were definitely differences between his voice now and his voice in the Original Trilogy.

    I'm glad they got James to come back, though—I can't imagine anyone else voicing Darth Vader.

    I agree. Dave Filoni said something interesting that about James Earl Jones that hadn't really occurred to me before. It was something to the effect of, because JEJ invented Vader's vocal performance, he's constantly changing the rules of how Vader should talk, and that's okay. Vader speaks differently whenever he appears.

    And you can tell by listening, really. In A New Hope, it's fast and angry. In The Empire Strikes Back, it's cold, calm, and sinister. In Return of the Jedi, it's deliberate and cold, but less assured as he is subordinate to the Emperor and slowly changes back to Anakin. In Revenge of the Sith, it's confused and distraught. In Rebels, it's kind of back to the ESB style, but a bit less exaggerated. And in Rogue One, it sounds arguably the most annoyed at the things the character has to deal with.

    That's really interesting! I never really paid attention to that before, but that's really interesting. James Earl Jones is the voice of Darth Vader, so he can do whatever the hell he wants, to be honest. It's not like you can't tell it's Vader. Thank you for sharing that! :)

    I actually really like the way Vader sounds in Revenge of the Sith. It may just be his comparatively younger voice compared to now, but I feel like they really nailed the OT sound in Ep. III.
