5) First Look at Darth Vader in Rogue One
In what is the worst kept secret since, well, the last entry, it had been strongly rumoured for a long time that Darth Vader would appear in Rogue One. Well, now it is 100% confirmed as some new footage of him was released in the form of a brand new trailer for the movie. Unfortunately, it was only for the eyes of those in attendance at SWC and is not being shared with the general public. Well, at least not yet.
The moment that sent fans wild was a brief shot of Vader, surrounded by an ominous red glow, taking in one of his iconic, much-imitated breaths. It’s hardly anything, but it is a brilliant tease for what is to come. After the character was damaged somewhat in the prequel trilogy, Rogue One looks set to reintroduce proper, old-school evil Vader. Hooray!
