Star Wars Rebels ended its spectacular Season 2 with a world shattering showdown that saw Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) finally confront her old master Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader, Ezra (Taylor Gray) slipping towards the dark side, and Kanaan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) suffering serious, permanent injury. Fans have been counting every minute until their first look at the upcoming Season 3 and Star Wars Celebration brought the goods with an incredible, jam-packed trailer.
Watch the non-stop thrills of the Star Wars Rebels Season 3 trailer via the Star Wars YouTube page below:
Holy cow. So much to digest there! We have our first look at Grand Admiral Thrawn, the debut of Wedge Antilles (!), an older, darker Ezra with a shaved head, and a bearded, blind Kanaan. Season 3 looks to have even bigger threats and more ties to the growing new Star Wars continuity. With the inclusion of Wedge and the release of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this Fall, might we see some Rebels connection to that film in Season 3?
The trailer also shows the return of the lovable scoundrel Hondo (Jim Cummings), Darth Maul’s (Sam Witwer) continued seduction of Ezra, and a storyline that seems to feature Sabine’s (Tiya Sircar) connection to the Madalorian warriors. Not to mention AT-AT’s, flying stormtroopers, a giant force creature of some kind and all sorts of other insanity. You should probably go watch it again and again to take in all the Star Wars goodness.
Star Wars Rebels Season 3 premieres Fall 2016 on Disney XD.
