Movie News

With Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One movie now moving along nicely, some new details are being revealed on what and who will we see in the film. And yes, we’re talking Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

All we’d known so far, bar a few casting additions, was that the film would be set before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and would focus on a group of rebels attempting to steal the plans for the Death Star. Bloody-Disgusting is now reporting that the previously-announced Ben Mendelsohn will be playing the ‘big bad’ of the film, who will actually be a new Moff character. As well as that, there’s plenty of bounty hunters who have been hired by Mendelsohn’s Moff to track down the stolen plans. Additionally, news of the missing deets makes its way to one Darth Vader, who himself appears in a small, knarked role and plays a part in the mission to track down the pesky rebels.

On the bounty hunter front, we’ll get to see Boba Fett, Bossk, Dengar, Zuckuss, 4LOM, IG-88, and Cad Bane, who is a character previously seen in Clone Wars. It’s believed that, yes, Boba will be heavily featured in the overall arc of the movie.

With the only confirmed cast members at this stage being Mendelsohn, Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is currently set for a December 16th, 2016 release.
