Darth Vader & Director Krennic “Aren’t Friendly” In ‘Rogue One’

While many casual filmgoers are excited to see Darth Vader’s return to the big screen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the hardcore fans are looking forward to diving into the dynamic between Vader and the film’s main antagonist, Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn). The actor spoke with Empire about the movie and gave some details on the relationship between the two villains.

“It’s fair to say Lord Vader and [Krennic] aren’t friendly. Darth is very much about the Force. Krennic is force – not really down with the whole mystical thing.”

He then went on to discuss the character’s mindset.

“He is truly a man that has made his own way up the chain through his own abilities. His weapon, for instance, is a very old type of blaster, because he’s an old warrior duded. He’s been put in charge of making this thing happen. And it’s gonna get done!”

The film hits theaters on December 16.
