No More  Darth Vader  in Star Wars Franchise? 

James Earl Jones, who voiced Darth Vader for almost 40 years, has officially stepped away from performing the voice of Vader for Lucasfilm's Star Wars franchise, according to Vanity Fair.

However, Matthew Wood from Lucasfilm told the magazine that the actor wanted to "keep Vader alive" by giving over the rights to his voice to filmmakers using artificial intelligence.

“He had mentioned he was looking into winding down this particular character. So how do we move forward?”

Currently, the rights to the role reside with Lucasfilm and Ukrainian A.I. audio company Respeecher, who previously worked on Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Surprisingly, Darth Vader's voice in Obi-Wan Kenobi was entirely created using artificial intelligence.

Although he has retired from the role, both studios continue to discuss their plans for Vader with Jones despite his retirement from the role, and they make sure to "heed his advice on how to stay on the right track."
