Regarding latest new likely that Darth Vader will return to the big screen this year in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. LucasFilm has yet to confirm character’s presence in the film. Previously lord was played by two-in-one: David Prowse provided his on-set body and James Earl Jones supplied the iconic voice.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on 16 December 2016.

After the enormous success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is currently the third highest grossing film of all time, a new stand alone film follows the Rebel Alliance who stole the plans for the original Death Star plans. During a week a trailer to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been watched over 30,000,000 times.

But for us, martial arts movie fans, the most important news is Donnie Yen kicking as** of stormtroopers.

Yen is one of the biggest box office draws in mainland China, and thanks to his Ip Man role along with The Monkey King, movies earned millions of dollars. No wonder producers decided to take Donnie on board as he is able to bring a galaxy a little closer to the hearts of Chinese filmgoers.

In this trailer we have a brief glimpse of martial artist in action with some pretty bad-ass weaponry. He is dressed like a galactic Ronin or a swordsman, and using a long stick to chop down a storm troopers with a sweet one-two move.
