STAR WARS REBELS: OLD RED EYES IS BACK!


The feared Inquisitor will soon be informed of a new "Rebel Cell" in action on the far-off frontier world of Lothal. But before that, he receives a new directive from his own boss- the dreaded Jedi-killer Darth Vader: destroy the Children of the Force, as STAR WARS REBELS series opener Spark of Rebellion gets a special airing on the US ABC channel today (and tomorrow 4.30 pm via the UK's SKY ONE HD), with an important, ratings-grabbing additional scene featuring the vocal return of James Earl Jones. Vader's presence is truly welcome but surely going to be all too brief- looking very much like a streamlined version of the character conceived by Ralph McQuarrie, whilst his red eyes are a deliberate nod to the original 1977 film: Vader's mask, worn by Dave Prowse, having red-tinted lenses during filming. Here's hoping for more appearances from the franchise's greatest ever villain further down the series line...
