Darth Vader Is Back

This is actually a pretty cool little bit of news. According to Entertainment Weekly the iconic James Earl Jones will be reprising his role as the voice of the most Bad Ass villain in Star Wars history. Apparently Disney plans on airing a Star Wars: Rebels special on ABC that will feature Darth Vader and James Earl Jones will play his voice once again. Please hold while I have a NERDGASM!!!

Now as exciting as this is it doesn’t actually seem like it’s going to be a very big part that he will be playing. Recently the premiere of Star Wars: Rebels delivered over 6.5 million viewers when it aired on Disney XD. That’s pretty damn impressive…or should I say “Most impressive.” It’s so impressive in fact that Disney wants to re-air the episode but this time with an extra scene featuring The Sith Lord himself backed by the iconic voice of Mr. James Earl Jones. So far there is no word on weather or not this is just a one time appearance. The special is set to air on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m.
