We can't even begin to describe the force within us that's geeking out with this one!
Entertainment Weekly reveals that James Earl Jones will reprise his voice role for Star Wars: Rouge One, while a "variety" of performers will stand in as the character. It was also confirmed with LucasFilm according to EW that he will be in the film sparingly, but will "loom large" at a pivotal moment.
Given that JEJ hasn't reprises the role until now, this will bring a whole new series of Darth Vader fans into the mix as kids, teens (and let's face it, us adults) get our kicks seeing a new installment of Vader come to life.
For those thinking this is a bad idea, it's James Earl Jones, what could go wrong?
The film is slated to release December 2016.
