Oh hell yes kids you read that right! The one and only lord of the Sith loved by both fanboys and fangirls the world over is set to make his triumphant return but this time via the small screen. And the news gets better as DARTH VADER‘s quick cameo will be voiced by the one man that downright intimidated the crap out of me as a kid, James Earl Jones.
Here’s what executive producer Dave Filoni had to say on this:
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.
Come on who’s not ready to watch this now? I don’t care if it’s 30 seconds or 2 minutes, as long as he doesn’t scream “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!” consider me stoked.
So when does this happen? October 26th (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) so be sure to set your DVR for Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, call in sick to work, grab a lightsaber, holster a blaster and bring whatever themed snack you can think of because this will be awesome.
You feel that? It’s a great disturbance in the Force and it feels so good.
