Lucasfilm and Disney have announced that the premiere episode of Star Wars Rebels, "Spark of Rebellion", will re-air on ABC on October 26th at 7:00pm with a brand new scene featuring James Earl Jones as Darth Vader! Rebels Executive Producer Dave Filoni told StarWars.com, "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." Jones had previously provided the voice of Vader in Episodes III-VI.
The episode first aired on October 3rd on Disney Channel and was released on DVD without the Vader scene. I have to say, I'm very excited to see this new scene! We know so little about the Inquisitor and rumors suggest that inquisitors could play a major role in the future of Star Wars, so to get some insight on him could be crucial. Plus, the return of James Earl Jones to Star Wars is very exciting. I can understand why some fans might be upset about them not including the scene in the DVD release.
