The guys over at Making Star Wars have reported that they’ve just heard there’s a few BIG names heading for the beginning of Rebels Season 2…

They are reporting that at a Marvel event earlier today, a Lucasfilm representative told them that the first episode of Season 2 will feature Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine AND Ahsoka Tano.

They went on to say: “I took the information to my sources. They couldn’t believe it. How did I know this? When I told them they were shocked. It was pretty funny. That was when it was confirmed for me. Since then I’ve had it confirmed solidly again.”

They also report that James Earl Jones recorded his lines already and the very lovely Ashley Eckstein (watch our interview with her below) is back as the older Ahsoka Tano.

This is awesome news… the part we are most excited for is the return of Ahsoka because, frankly, it opens all sorts of doors regarding the character and future episodes and movies.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
