For every cool new character The Force Awakens introduced, and every familiar face it brought back, ten new questions popped up in their wake. It’s been more than thirty years since Darth Vader’s death and the destruction of the Empire, and the galaxy has changed quite a bit since then. Plenty of new players have entered the game, including a mysterious organization known as the Knights of Ren. Our buddy Kylo Ren is one of these Dark Side fanatics, but he seems to be the only one. So, what happened to the other Knights of Ren? And how are they, exactly?

Whether or not you enjoyed the rest of Rogue One, there’s one scene in particular that pretty much everyone agrees is great. It happens right at the end after Jyn Erso’s team have successfully send the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance (I’d say spoilers, but we all already know that happens anyway), and is a welcome burst of nostalgia featuring one familiar character and some wild swordfighting. According to editor John Gilroy, that scene was one of the ones added during reshoots. (Okay, now I’m saying SPOILERS. You’ve been warned.)

Star Wars Rebels has gifted us similarly high-profile big bads each year, from beating Rogue One to James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader return, to this year’s reemergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Don’t expect Vader to have any significant role going forward, however, as Rebels boss Dave Filoni says there’s been “an elected decision to not have Vader around.”

With Disney throwing a massive amount of resources behind their new Star Wars property, one of the more interesting things to come out of Star Wars Celebration was the news that Luscasfilm would not shy away from using emerging technologies like virtual reality to tell Star Wars stories. Case in point? A brand new Darth Vader virtual reality experience, which the folks at Entertainment Weekly have written up alongside quotes from the producers and crew.

Darth Vader Will Appear in ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story set betwixt the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and with a story that involves the band of Rebels who stole the plans for the original Death Star (the same plans that Princess Leia gave to R2-D2, sparking the plot of the original Star Wars), it would only make sense that the Empire’s villain supreme, Darth Vader, would be involved somehow. I mean, he has to be right? What is he, asleep at the wheel of the TIE fighter? C’mon.

Star Wars Rebels has more than distinguished itself from its Clone Wars predecessor, though the Season 2 introduction of Ahsoka Tano guaranteed we’d see the erstwhile “Snips” face off against her former master. That day is soon upon us, but in the meantime, relive their loving mentor-padawan relationship in a new retrospect.
