The return of Darth Vader has already been teased for this coming Monday’s Season 1 finale of Disney XD’s animated series “Star Wars Rebels,” and now the channel has released the full trailer which you can check out below!
The episode, titled “Fire Across the Galaxy,” will air on Disney XD at 9:00 p.m. and will conclude the current cliffhanger of whether the crew of The Ghost can successfully rescue the Jedi Kanan from the hands of the Empire. It looks as if The Inquisitor has the same electric shock device tactic Vader used on Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back. Could the crew be falling into a trap?
Set between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV, the “Star Wars Rebels” story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost – cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and grumpy old astromech droid Chopper – will face threatening new villains, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.
“Star Wars Rebels” is created by Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is also executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg as well as Greg Weisman (“Gargoyles”).
