Get a look at the Rebels Vader… As earlier reported, ‘Spark of Rebellion,’ the show’s premiere movie, will be airing Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.
James Earl Jones returns to voice Vader on Rebels. Lucasfilm confirms via The Hollywood Reporter the reports that ‘Spark of Rebellion’ will air on ABC on October 26.
USA Today has a new clip from Rebels. Kanan and the Inquisitor battle it out, and Dave Filoni hints “it would be a shame” to not have Darth Vader show up.
In a second victory for the light side, Obi-wan Kenobi has won 2014’s This Is Madness Star Wars Character tournament. Two-time dark side champ Darth Vader also lost to Yoda last year.
It’s a rematch for the ages as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader face off in the This is Madness championship round. Who has your vote?
Out this week is the sequel to one of the few Star Wars books your non-Star Wars obsessive friends (assuming they’re drama/English geeks or drama/English geek-adjacent) have read. Yes, William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back will be in stores today.
Our next novel is the paperback release of Tim Lebbon’s Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void on April 1, with J.W. Rinzler’s Star Wars Storyboards: The Original Trilogy on May 13. And the drama/English geeks will get William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return on July 1. The cover was recently revealed on Cnet.
I don’t know why all this Star Wars TV stuff is coming out of Germany lately, but here you have it: Dave Filoni and crew introducing a grumpy new astromech droid from Rebels, Chopper.
Meanwhile, there’s also some toy-based hints we might see Vader on Rebels. Yeah, it was more or less inevitable, but I admit I am a bit surprised that it may happen early enough to be in the first round of toys.
UPDATE: Chopper is now on StarWars.com, with a first look at (of course,) the Hasbro version.
Two of Jeffrey Brown’s illustrations from Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess come to life – or at least 3-D – in these new maquettes from Gentle Giant.

It has come to Santa Maul’s attention that Darth Vader, that pan-fried brute, is now being used in place of Santa Claus at Disney World. Santa Maul supposes this is to be expected, as nothing says plebeian like Disney, but he finds the use of a wishy-washy Sith like Vader to be an afront to the very nature of Sithmas. And there probably wasn’t even any violence to liven things up!
Santa Maul has reported the incident to his master, Darth Sinterklaas. He expects vengeance will be swift.
John Ostrander and Jan Duursema are back Wednesday with a new arc of their Dawn of the Jedi series in Force War #1. Meanwhile, collections of Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin and Legacy: Prisoner of the Floating World will also debut in comic shops.
Novel fans sit tight – next week brings the paperback edition of Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels.
