Star Wars Rebels premiered on Disney Channel and Disney XD with 6.5 million viewers. Now Disney is going to give more people a chance to watch the premiere mini-movie, Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, when it airs on ABC Sunday, October 26th, at 1pm ET/PT. It’s going to be special, since there will be an added scene that includes a cameo from Darth Vader, with the one and only James Earl Jones returning to voice the Sith lord.

The show has been renewed for a second season, and you can catch it weekly on Disney XD Mondays at 1pm ET/PT.

Synopsis: Set between the events of Star Wars Episodes III and IV, the “Star Wars Rebels” story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost – cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and grumpy old astromech droid Chopper – will face threatening new villains, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck.
