Darth Vader set to appear in Rogue One

More on Star Wars

Death never stopped anyone - especially in the world of film - and so it is with Darth Vader, who is clearly not content with his occasional appearances in Star Wars Rebels. A report on Birth.Movies.Death, the man formerly known as Anakin Skywalker will be a formidable, if background, foe for the rebels in Star Wars: Rogue One; the Anthology spin-off due in cinemas in December 2016.

While he ISN'T expected to be a primary villain it DOES make sense that he's a significant character in a film focusing on the Death Star itself.

In somewhat related news, we've heard that contrary to popular belief the events in Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD actually foreshadow the Rogue One storyline and NOT that of Episode VII - again this makes more sense given that the TV series tells the story of the very founding of the rebellion against the Empire and that Rogue One is set slap-bang in the middle of this rebellion.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
