Star Wars has never shied away from changing it’s films, and Star Wars Rebels has decided to amend its introductory film Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion by adding a Darth Vader scene (complete with voice work by James Earl Jones) to the film.  This new version of Spark of Rebellion will air on ABC on October 25th at 7PM ET/PT.

Meanwhile, the official Star Wars Rebels series premieres on Disney XD October 13th and features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Jason Isaacs, Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, and Tiya Sircar.  

star-wars-rebels-600x337Producer Dave Filoni commented on the addition:

“We wanted to do something special for the ABC broadcast. We’ve added a scene which gives audiences insight into the Inquisitor and includes a cameo by Darth Vader voiced by the distinguished actor James Earl Jones.”

In no way is this designed to make you watch the movie again lol. Still, I have to applaud Disney’s game on this one.  They know how to get the most out of their IP.  Will you tune in to watch the new version of the film?  Or are you good without it?
