Presumably within the Death Star, Darth Vader will likely use the technology of the Empire to trace the transmissions of the space station's stolen schematic data across the galaxy, to a certain Princess known for her "mercy mission" treks, operating within a Blockade Runner bearing full-access diplomatic markings. The chase has begun, as too will the start of A New Hope...
We only saw the back of him in the second spectacular, goose pimples inducing ROGUE ONE trailer, but the upcoming merchandise has finally given us a look at Vader as we want to see him: his character and visage maintaining the visual continuity seen with EPISODE IV, and a mask once again realized by his original Elstree Studios initiator from 1976, sculptor Brian Muir. The recent Entertainment Weekly ROGUE ONE special indicated that several actors (possibly including bulky Welshman Spencer Wilding) were playing Vader for his crucial upcoming sequence, so one of them must surely be a stuntman, following in the tradition of Dave Prowse/Bob Anderson.
