Star Wars Rebels Midseason Trailer Reveals Obi-Wan and Ties to Rogue One

When the midseason finale of Disney XD‘s Star Wars Rebels concluded, Ezra and the crew of the Ghost were just figuring out that the key to defeating the Sith lied with a familiar Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi.  They learned that he was on a planet with two suns, but they had no idea that this planet was Tatoinne.  Today’s Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Midseason trailer reveals that an old foe is set to have a rematch with the man now known as Ben.

In addition to the upcoming clash between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan, a rather important character from Rogue One plans to make his debut in the second half of Rebels’ 3rd season.  Forest Whitaker‘s character Saw Guerrera will help out the members of the Ghost in their venture to take down the empire.  As the trailer shows, this is a younger Guerrera than the one Jynn Erso reunites with in Rogue One.  Perhaps the story arc with him will reveal more of his backstory and why he became an extremist/huffer of strange gas.  

We also will be seeing Death Troopers, as well as the Rebel Leader Mothma, which will further increase ties to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and A New Hope.  Plus, we get a little more backstory into Sabine and her Mandolorian family!

There is a lot to be excited about when Star Wars Rebels returns in 3 days on January 7, 2017!

What do you think of the trailer of season 3 so far?
