Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels has built sturdier and sturdier bridges to the Original Trilogy with its multiple guest roles, but with the grand Season 1 finale hitting galaxies far, far away this Monday, The Force’s biggest bad will make a sinister return. The first trailer for Star Wars Rebels’ “Fire Across the Galaxy” has spread, promising Darth Vader’s return!

Where previously we’d heard that Vader might pop up again in the already-ordered Season 2 premiere (along with a returning fan-favorite character), the first trailer for next Monday’s finale sees Vader already in our sights, presumably again voiced by original Star Wars star James Earl Jones. Elsewhere, Ezra and the Ghost crew set out to rescue Kanan from the clutches of the Inquisitor and Grand Moff Tarkin, meaning we’d expect Vader’s presence in a more teasing capacity than anything else

Meanwhile, Disney XD hasn’t offered any definitive word on when Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels will premiere, though at least some details are expected from Star Wars Celebration in April, if not an early look at the newest episodes. In the meantime, you can check out the first footage of Darth Vader’s Star Wars Rebels return above, and prepare for what other major movie connections a “Fire Across the Galaxy” might bring!
