Darth Vader's appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars story has been promised for some time now and yet up until now we've seen no trace of the wheezing Sith Lord in any of the promotional material. 

That all changes with the first full trailer of the film which hints at his presence from the opening seconds with a haunting rendition of the Imperial March theme. We also get some greater insight into the supporting characters of the film who are helping smuggler Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) on her mission of stealing the plans for the Death Star. 

There may have been reports of reshoots and extra cooks joining the kitchen for the edit but if this trailer is anything to go by, Rogue One should deliver a Star Wars film of the highest quality. 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is in cinemas this December.
