James Earl Jones is hoping Star Wars villain Darth Vader makes an appearance in the rebooted movie franchise because he "would love to be a part" of the new films.

The sci-fi franchise is set to make a return to the big screen with director J.J. Abrams at the helm, and original Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, recently confirmed he and co-star Harrison Ford are in talks to reprise their roles.

Jones, who famously provided the voice of Darth Vader in the original trilogy, while bodybuilder/actor David Prowse wore the costume on set, has now insisted he too wants to be included in the cast reunion.

He says, "I would love to be a part of that. David Prowse would return in the costume and I would do the voice for David."
