STAR WARS REBELS One Hour Premiere

If any of you are fans of the animated series, Star Wars Rebels, you might want to know that the second season of the show is premiering with a one-hour episode, this Saturday, June 20th, at 9pm on Disney XD.  And yes, in the promo art above, is Darth Vader. (Remember the goose bumps you got when you saw Han Solo in the latest Star Wars film trailer? Would you get the same goose bumps knowing that James Earl Jones is voicing Darth Vader in the show?)

To be honest, after "Clone Wars" was pulled from Cartoon Network after Disney bought out Lucas, I was not too hip on  any new animated series from this franchise. I watched the first few episodes begrudgingly and then found myself surprised to be getting into the story line. Then suddenly I found myself looking forward to each new episode. So yes, it is different, but just as good as "Clone Wars" was over on Cartoon Network.
