Lucasfilm (Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS)) announced Wednesday in a Entertainment Weekly cover story that Darth Vader will be making (at least) a cameo in the next "Star Wars" film, "Rogue One."

To compliment an exclusive interview with Gareth Edwards, the director of the new film, Entertainment Weekly used a photo of the black-masked man on their cover this week.

While Vader will be included in the film, but his character may not be as prevalent as anticipated.

Fans appear excited to hear Vader will be making an appearance, no matter how small:
