Ezra, Kanan and the rest of the crew of the Ghost are headed back to the small screen in less than two months. Lucas film has just announced that “Star Wars Rebels” will air its Season Two premiere at 9:00pm ET/PT on Saturday, June 20! Be prepared for a full hour of “Rebels” with the extended Season Two premiere, “The Siege of Lothal” (which was screened for an audience of lucky fans at the recent Star Wars Celebration).
Executive produced by Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), “Rebels” features the voice talents of Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Steve Blum (Zeb), and Taylor Gray (Ezra).
Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary “Star Wars” saga, “Star Wars Rebels” unfolds between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV and tells the story of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost who together face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries and embark on thrilling adventures. In its second season, “Star Wars Rebels” will feature recurring appearances by fan-favorite characters including Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano with James Earl Jones reprising his iconic role from the films and Ashlecky Eckstein returning to voice the “Clone Wars” character. Dee Bradley Baker will also return this season as Captain Rex (as well as Gregor and Wolffe).
