Learn when we’ll see more of Darth Vader.
The “Siege of Lothal” was a great season 2 debut for Star Wars Rebels. It made Vader scary again, upped the stakes for our heroes, and connected them to the greater Star Wars universe. The rest of the season has promised to make even more changes such as adding Clone Wars’ Captain Rex to the cast, letting Ahsoka let loose with her lightsabers, and most importantly changing Sabine’s hair color.
The good news is you don’t have to wait too long to get another glimpse of our heroes in action. It seems that on Thursday, October 8th, New York Comic Con will have a Star Wars Rebels panel with an exclusive sneak peak of the season.
How do you know this?
Comic Vine posted the official press release:
“Fans attending New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 8th will receive an exclusive sneak peek of what’s to come in the second season of Star Wars Rebels with a panel featuring special guests plus a preview screening of two new episodes from the series.
As the second season of Star Wars Rebels opens, the crew of the Ghost is now considered a very real threat to the Empire and has caught the attention of Darth Vader himself. Undeterred, the rebels seek out old friends and add powerful allies to their cause, forming the beginnings of a more formidable alliance against the Empire. To stop them, Vader will dispatch new agents to hunt down their growing coalition, determined to snuff them out before they can ignite a galaxy to rebellion.
The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and will be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes later on the same stage, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These all-new episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe – three clones from the previous Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from The Clone Wars – Ahsoka Tano – who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of season 1.”
I don’t want to read all that, what’s the most important information?
When it is: October 8th, 2015. The panel is at 1:30-2:30 PM. Later that day at 5:30-6:30 PM, there will be a screening of two new episodes.
Where it is: Empire Stage
Wait, what two episodes are they screening?
Presumably, the first two episodes that take place just after the season 2 premiere, “The Siege of Lothal.” They will include the first appearance of the clones Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolffe on the show. Fans of Clone Wars will remember the names fondly.
But I want to see them now!
