Darth Vader is one of the most well-known villains in pop culture history. There literally is no villain better known than the Sith and his appearances in the Star Wars movies have gone down in cinema history.
He was last seen in the Star Wars spinoff movie, Rogue One, and his scene towards the end of that movie was arguably one of the best moments of the film.
He was seen getting onto the ship at the end of Gareth Edwards’ movie and then slicing his way through what he would refer to as “rebel scum”.
It was a magnificent scene and the first time we’ve ever really seen Darth Vader in full swing and at the height of his powers.
There clearly is an appetite for more on-screen Darth Vader moments and it sounds like we might be getting them if We Got This Covered’s sources are to be believed.
According to the media outlet, Lucasfilm is thinking of doing more Star Wars films in between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith and Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi.
Could we get to see more Darth Vader in future Star Wars movies?
These films would then include cameo appearances from Darth Vader, and James Earl Jones would be brought in to voice the Sith Lord.
I do like the sound of this, however, we also have to bear in mind where this news is coming from and question its authenticity.
There’s also the fact that the Star Wars movies need to start moving away from the Skywalker saga and that who era in the Star Wars universe.
I like the idea of exploring what came before the prequels, and there are rumours that Lucasfilm wants to adapt the Knights of the Old Republic video games into movies.
This would make far more sense. That said, I wouldn’t mind seeing more Darth Vader.
Perhaps a Darth Vader series on Disney Plus would be better suited than more movies with Darth Vader cameos.
What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Darth Vader return in more Star Wars movies?
