Now that we’re almost through the first month of 2016, rumours have been heating up on this years’ Star Wars film titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. One of the persistent rumours is that Darth Vader will be appearing in the film. A new rumour has hinted at Darth Vader partaking in some action during the film.
This is only a rumour and the details may or may not be accurate. However, if you’re looking to avoid any information regarding Rogue One this is your SPOILER alert warning.
The rumour describes storyboards of possible Darth Vader action scenes in the film. The rumoured details can be read below:
“The action sequences filmed are unknown, but there was work pitching the different ways Darth Vader could kill rebels on a battlefield with the Force and his lightsaber. The storyboard “pitches” showing decapitated rebels, people being dismembered by Vader throwing his sword, levitating bodies to make human shields and so on. The art was more violent than what we’ve seen Darth Vader do on screen before.
I wish there were more details on the setting of the ground battle but the most we could get was that it was a smokey battlefield.”
Another rumour has suggested that the original script for Rogue One was pushing an R rating. Even if the film receives a different rating it looks like (if he appears at all) Vader will get some violent action scenes.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for release on December 16th, 2016.
