Darth Vader Sneak Peek in Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion

3 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A short promo was released for ABC's alternate version of Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion. The spot gives us out first look at some footage of Darth Vader, and we get to hear his iconic heavy breathing. We posted an image of Vader not too long ago, but seeing it in motion is a lot better. It has me really excited to see Darth Vader back in the Star Wars universe! Especially since the great James Earl Jones provided the voice for him in the series. I'm not sure how much more of Vader we will see in this alternate version of the TV movie, but I'm sure his powerful presence will be felt. Vader is the guy pulling the strings behind-the-scenes in the series. He's working directly with the main villain, The Inquisitor, who is hunting down and killing any remaining Jedi Knights.

Lucasfilm and Disney's Star Wars Rebels is going strong, and so far I've thoroughly enjoyed it. It was recently revealed that James Earl Jones would reprise his role of Darth Vader and provide the voice in an alternate version of Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, which is set to show on ABC on October 26th. Today we have our first look at Vader in the series thanks to David Prowse, who is the actor that actually played Vader in the costume in the original trilogy.

The photo features the character talking to The Inquisitor, who is taking orders from Vader as he hunts down the remaining Jedi to kill them. In an interview with /Film, producer Dave Filoni talked about the working relationship between Vader and the Inquisitor, explaining,

Looking at a galaxy, there were 10,000 Jedi in The Clone Wars. That number’s been diminished. How do you find them? »

I couldn't be more excited to report that James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels! How freakin' awesome is that?? I'm beside myself with excitement! Okay, that's enough exclamation points.

The movie episode is currently making the rounds on iTunes, Amazon streaming, and Disney Xd. It was also announced that ABC will broadcast an alternate version of Spark of Rebellion on Sunday, October 26th.
