There have been reports earlier this week saying that ABC would be airing the “Star Wars Rebels” premiere movie “Spark of Rebellion” with an extra scene featuring Darth Vader in the near future. Well now that report has been confirmed, as StarWars.com has announced that ABC will indeed be airing “Spark of Rebellion” on October 26th featuring an extra with Darth Vader, and voiced by none other than James Earl Jones! Here is the official announcement from StarWars.com:
The critically-acclaimed epic adventure Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion will air on ABC on Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT). Executive producer Dave Filoni states, “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 if “Spark of Rebellion” wasn’t great enough to watch again, this extra scene with Darth Vader will no doubt make the re-airing on ABC a must watch for sure, and the fact that James Earl Jones is reprising his iconic role is just icing on an already sweet cake!
Be sure not to miss “Spark of Rebellion” when it airs again Sunday October 26th, on ABC.
