With all the news from Star Wars Celebration, we missed this last night, so apologies for that…
But, after the brilliant trailer for Rebels Season 2 (here), we now know that the great James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader in the movies, is back as the dark lord of the Sith in the animated series too.
Vader is back as the big bad this season and executive and supervising producer Dave Filoni confirmed that Jones will voice the character throughout the season and beyond, should the character stay in the spotlight (hey, it’s Vader, he’ll be back).
Jones has already voiced Vader in Rebels in the specially made clip for the very first episode, so we had a sneaking suspicion he’d be back. But we’re delighted to have it confirmed.
Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD later this year.
