Even if have you've already watched the animated Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion in its repeated airings on Disney Channel and Disney XD, they now have a big reason to tune in Oct. 26 for the ABC broadcast: Disney has announced the special presentation will include an additional scene featuring Darth Vader.
“We wanted to do something special for the ABC broadcast," Executive Producer Dave Filoni said in a statement. "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.”
Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Star Wars Rebels follows a ragtag bunch of rebels who band together aboard the freighter ship Ghost even as the Empire strengthens its grip on the galaxy and hunts down the last remaining Jedi Knights.
Spark of Rebellion delivered 6.5 million viewers in its premieres on Disney Channel and Disney XD. The special ABC presentation will be broadcast Sunday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Already renewed for a second season, Star Wars Rebels airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
