Thrilling episode with a few neat surprises! Rebels crew gets into some seriously dire straits in this episode. And I loved the way they handled Vader whether he's commanding, duelling or flying. What's also notable is how Ezra and Kanan talk of his presence. So disturbing and impactful after everything the official canonical stories have set up.

Such a good watch! :heavymetal:

"The Siege of Lothal" is a very good "Vader TV movie."

Vader wrecking shop in his TIE Advance meshes simultaneously with ANH, the PT, and TCW. Seeing Darth in his iconic ride also connects to my earliest memories of watching Star Wars.

In terms of Easter eggs, I liked the Stormtrooper with the red pauldron. Also, Phoenix Squadron's blue fighters and red flight suits is very Poe Dameron.

Witwer's Emperor is so spot-on. Did anyone else catch the Force Unleashed concept painting at the end of this episode's Rebels Recon? Maybe it's a clue about things to come?

JEJ absolutely nailed it. I was almost teary-eyed with joy hearing him speak new (and awesome) Darth Vader dialogue. It goes to show how important these OT characters really are to Star Wars. I really appreciated that they added the "tin" effect to mimic Vader's ANH voice.

I wish Ian would were on as Palpatine, but Witwer does a solid imitation.

Vader felt appropriately powerful and scary here, and was always one step ahead of the Rebels as he should. If we get one or two of those episodes a season, I'd be happy. Expertly executed.

I don't know why McDiarmid isn't game for voice work. Has he ever spoken about the subject?

Am I right in thinking that the Stormtrooper in the first image has a red pauldron?

EDIT: Never mind, it's definitely red. Apparently, the red trooper has been on the show in the past.

Absolutely amazing start for the new series! Loved pretty much everything about it, since it actually felt like a small movie with all of the stuff going on. I am wondering why is the show so bright and low on contrast - a bit of correction to the video settings really does wonders.

THIS is the most amazing awesome Animation work done for SW ever! Vader was perfect, they got him right in every way they could: appearance, moves, stance, fighting style, gestures, and most of all: JEJ as Vader does it as there has not been 38 years between Ep IV and this Episode. GREAT GREAT Stuff. REBELS is acclombishment beyond belive and it's everything I hoped for. Let's get some more tie ins with TCW and nods to Vaders Past and the nerdgasms are garantied.

THX to Filoni and his Crew for those most awesome great 43 Minutes of STAR WARS Entertainment!

Vader is back to his 1977 version. It was brilliant.

He also felt more "cinematic" than the other characters with all the restrained movement they gave him. Sometimes less is more, animators. Him playing them all the way to the end, reminds me of old Marvel comics Vader.
All in all, a great way to open the second season. :funkyninjaz:

It bears repeating how remarkable this episode was. I really hope JEJ is involved in more Star Wars going forward. His presence was awe-inspiring.

A couple of toy images of Rex and the new male Inquisitor were revealed at Comic Con.

Rewatched this recently. Might be the best new Star Wars content to come out in the last few years. Literally the closest anything has come to matching the feel of the OT.

It makes me excited to see what Vader brings in Rogue One. God bless JEJ.
