By now, you’ve seen the many, many Rogue One trailers and TV Spots out there, filled with the myriad of Darth Vader cameos, right? If you aren’t excited for the return of Darth Vader in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, then I find your lack of faith in our Sith overlord seriously disturbing, and I would suggest a bit of motivation might be the key to changing your tune…
There, all better? Okay, let’s get down to the details on Vader and his triumphant return to the big screen. James Earl Jones will once again be acting as our Dark Lord’s voice, which means Darth Vader has actual lines in the film, folks.
Next, there are two stuntmen said to be wearing the Darth Vader suit. Neither of these men have been officially confirmed as of yet, but they have been heavily rumored, so take it with a grain of salt. Spencer Wilding (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Daniel Naprous.
Now, why two stuntmen you may be asking yourself right about now, well, that’s because early on in the Rogue One filming process, a leaked filming scene with Darth Vader had the Dark Lord of the Sith in a pitched battle with the Rebels on Scarif where he was using his lightsaber and the Force, causing great carnage. Hopefully, this didn’t get cut during reshoots of the film.
