Star Wars Rebels finale
Darth Vader is set to appear in Star Wars Rebels season finale StarWars

Star Wars Rebels season finale will feature one of the most famous Star Wars villian, Darth Vader.

The 13th episode is titled, Fire Across The Galaxy, which will air on 2 March, 2015 on Disney XD.

The season finale picks up from the Rebel Resolve, where the rebels were on a mission to rescue their leader, Kanan Jarrus, from the Galactic Empire.

As entertaining as Disney HD's animated series finale is likely to be, it would feature some classic Trilogy-style action, including a lightsaber battle between Kanan, Ezra and The Inquisitor and a fleet of Star Destroyers.

In the previous episode, fans saw ace pilot Hera talking to a mysterious Fulcrum, whose identity will be revealed in the upcoming episode.

According to a new promo for the season finale: "The mission to save Kanan ignites a Fire Across the Galaxy which shows Kanan fighting Darth Vader in an epic showdown."

The series centres on a rag-tag crew, with cowboy Jedi Kanan, Hera, Ezra, Zeb, Sabine and grumpy old astromech droid Chopper, who are being threatened by new villains, embark on a thrilling adventure.

Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The series was renewed for a second season in October last year.

The season finale will air on 2 March, at 9pm ET on Disney XD.
