Rebel warriors Ezra (Taylor Gray) and Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) learn that the powerful Sith Lord Darth Vader (James Earl Jones) is not so easy to kill in a new clip from the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 premiere The Siege of Lothal, airing Saturday, June 20 at 9 PM ET on Disney XD. It isn't known how, exactly, the crew of the Ghost comes into contact with Darth Vader, but they may surely think twice before attacking him again.
The new season will kick off with a special one-hour movie event, Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal, and continue rolling out new episodes in the fall. Recently revealed at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, the exciting new season will see our rebel heroes encountering fan-favorite characters that include Wolffe and Gregor, Ahsoka Tano, Captain Rex, and the iconic Darth Vader. The new season will also feature a number of iconic characters from the original Star Wars movies, such as Stephen Stanton voicing Grand Moff Tarkin, Phil LaMarr portraying Bail Organa, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Frank Oz as Yoda and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.
Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga, Star Wars Rebels unfolds between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and tells the story of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost who together face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries and embark on thrilling adventures.
