The Emperor Unleashes Darth Vader in New Teaser for the Premiere of Star Wars Rebels Season 2
A new teaser for the Season 2 premiere of Star Wars Rebels has been unveiled, and it features what is likely to be one of the season's key themes....Darth Vader hunting down Kanan, Ahsoka and their growing band of rebels. The first 2 episodes of Rebels' second season will air during a special TV event on June 20th, giving all those who weren't in attendance at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year a chance to see what all the fuss was about. 



We've already had a longer teaser for these early episodes, but this second video does place a bit more emphasis on Vader's new mission, which is to hunt down Kanan and his rebels and prevent any further disruption to Imperial rule.

After watching the first two episodes of Season 2 at Celebration, there were still a number of questions left unanswered for many fans. After she was announced to be joining her husband, Freddie Prinz Jr, on the Rebels cast for season 2, we still don't know who Sarah Michelle Gellar will be playing on the show, which has us thinking her casting could be linked to the appearance of more original trilogy characters. After Ahsoka made her return to the Star Wars universe, the rebellion is starting to slowly morph into the organized outfit we first see in Star Wars: A New Hope, and that has me hopeful that Princess Leia Organa may make an appearance at some point in the near future. And who better to play the Princess than a member of geek royalty like Sarah Michelle Gellar?

We're also looking forward to seeing whether or not Star Wars Rebels will tie-in with the Star Wars movie universe, especially after it was announced that Star Wars: Rogue One scribe, Gary Whitta, is guest-writing at least one new Rebels episode

But the one big question on every Star Wars fan's lips is whether or not we'll get to see Ahsoka Tano face off against her one-time Jedi Master, Anakin Skywalker. Ahsoka became a Star Wars superstar during her time on Dave Filoni's Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and seeing her return older, wiser and more powerful on Star Wars Rebels was one of this year's biggest TV moments. With Vader now hot on the Rebels' trail, it would seem that a reunion with his ex-Padawan is inevitable.

Star Wars Rebels returns on June 20th before reverting to its regular schedule later this fall.
