Tarkin Confirmed for Star Wars Rebels Episode 'Call to Action'

By: Dominic Jones

After having his name dropped several times in the premiere of Star Wars Rebels back in October, Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin will be making his first appearance on the series next week.  The episode "Call to Action" premieres on Disney XD next Monday February 9th, but was made available this morning to subscribers on the Watch Disney XD app.  The blog FanofStarWars first broke the news this morning.

The episode will see voice actor Stephen Stanton reprise the role after playing the character on several occasions in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  The character first appeared in A New Hope back in 1977 and was played by the legendary actor Peter Cushing.  The episode description reads, "As public awareness increases around the Rebels activity, they target an important Imperial network."  How Tarkin fits into this is still unclear, but you can bet he's not to happy about what the crew of The Ghost have been up to for the past several episodes.  

Update: we have another screenshot of Tarkin from the episode, courtesy of
