Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels arrives this weekend (June 20th), and we are all excited about what is coming next. Speaking of next, check out this clip from the first episode that introduces Darth Vader to the animated series.
The Dark Lord of the Sith faces the Ghost crew in the season premiere. What happens when you find yourself face to face with none other than Darth Vader? If you’re the heroes of Star Wars Rebels, you do the smart thing and run.
As teased at the end of Season 1, Darth Vader is a big new player in Season 2, as the Dark Lord of the Sith (once again voiced by James Earl Jones!) arrives to take care of this growing Rebel problem once and for all. And that’s not all, as Vader isn’t the only new inclusion to Rebels, with fan favorites Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) and Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) returning from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Are you as excited about this as I am? Can you feel my excitement vibrating its way through the Internet and into your heart? ‘Cause if you do, there may be something wrong with your Internet connection… just sayin’.
