Next week will mark the shocking second season finale for Star Wars Rebels. As luck would have it, Disney XD and Lucasfilm have released a new clip and some screenshots for the upcoming episode, which you can check out below.
In the Season 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels, iconic characters will re-emerge. The finale will be a one-hour special, where Kanan, Ezra and Ahsoka seek out an Inquisitor in order to gain more knowledge and information about Darth Vader. They soon encounter an unexpected ally for their fight against the Sith. Their search soon leads them to a confrontation with Darth Vader, who is once again voiced by the returning James Earl Jones. The three Jedi and their new ally now have to gather all their strength to survive.
For the new episode, Darth Maul is also set to appear, voiced by Sam Witwer. Based on the clip below, it looks like Darth Maul is in fact that unexpected ally against the Sith. So it seems Darth Maul has rejected the Sith and blames them for what happened to him. This is a very interesting development to the Star Wars saga, even if it only will take place on TV.
The upcoming finale is directed by the show’s executive producer Dave Filoni. The episode airs on Wednesday, March 30 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on Disney XD.
