Star Wars Rebels

The last time we heard Darth Vader speak was nine years ago believe it or not; voiced of course by the legendary James Earl Jones. Thankfully one of the most recognizable voices in film history will now be heard again thanks to the TV movie Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion. Star Wars Rebels premiered this week on the Disney Channel with a 44-minute special episode which is now headed to ABC for an additional second showing.

Jones and Darth Vader are returning for an appearance in a special scene added for the network movie on ABC. While it premiered on Disney Channel and Disney XD, executive producer Dave Filoni explained in a press release issued by Disney why it’s being added.

“We wanted to do something special for the ABC broadcast, we’ve added a scene which gives audiences insight into the Inquisitor and includes a cameo by Darth Vader voiced by the distinguished actor James Earl Jones.”

As you know, Star Wars Rebels takes place between the events of Episode III and Episode IV, so it’s safe to assume Vader will be on the lookout for the remaining Jedi. Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion airs on ABC Sunday October 26, 2014.

I just watched the first episode last night. It was so-so... I enjoyed the characters, and where they're going with it, but it just has too much Disney going on. When did Star Wars characters EVER say "cool", or "awesome"?

(...then again, I just had a bad memory of "NEATO"!!!)

"a cameo by Darth Vader"

Vader should be the main bad guy, not this 'Inquisitor' bullshit.

It will be cool to see the scene. But the show, however, is pretty underwhelming. At least so far.

I agree. Watching the first episode didn't exactly leave me wanting more.

That's awesome that he's returning! They've been using soundalikes in stuff like The Force Unleashed (Chad Vader) and while he is very good, nothing beats the original.
