The second season for Star Wars Rebels will kick off later this weekend with a special movie event on Disney XD with “The Siege of Lothal.” However, the regular season will not actually begin until later in the fall. However, viewers will be treated to the return of one of the most iconic cinematic villains of all time with Darth Vader, who plays a major role in the two-parter. He is once again voiced by James Earl Jones. You can check out a clip of the Ghost Crew facing Darth Vader from “The Siege of Lothal” in the player below.
Based on the latest clip, the second season of Star Wars Rebels does not look like a walk in the park at all for the crew of the Ghost. Even more, now that Darth Vader is involved, it appears some very tough times are ahead for the crew. Considering that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda appear to be the last remaining Jedi at the start of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, it does not bode well for the ultimate fates of Kanan and Ezra.
The new Star Wars Rebels special, “The Siege of Lothal,” will air on June 20 at 9PM ET on Disney XD. If you want a deeper look at the premiere, you can check out PopGeeks’ review of the two-parter from this year’s Star Wars Celebration HERE.
