The Dark Lord of the Sith is set to make his appearance in Star Wars Rebels.

Reports Variety:

Darth Vader will appear in an upcoming special presentation of Disney’s new animated series [Star Wars Rebels](series:965946). The best part: He will be voiced by the iconic character’s original actor, James Earl Jones.

Rebels recently delivered 6.5 million viewers in its Disney Channel premiere, titled Spark of Rebellion (you might say that viewership is most impressive). Now Disney plans to re-air the Episode IV prequel on its flagship ABC broadcast network. But to make the event extra special, an additional scene is being added featuring the black helmeted Sith Lord.

“We wanted to do something special for the ABC broadcast,” said executive producer Dave Filoni. “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.”

The special will air Sunday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m.

This is too cool! Hopefully this won't just be a one time thing and Mr. James Earl Jones will be voicing the iconic villain throughout the Star Wars Rebels run...
