For the last 3 and half seasons, Disney XD‘s animated Star Wars series, Star Wars Rebels, has delighted and amazing fans of the franchise, old and new. Their imaginative and original storytelling mixed with original and established characters from film and Clone Wars have made this the best Star Wars show we ever could’ve hoped for.
Now, that series is coming to an end. Before it does, though, Lucasfilm plans on making sure they go out the only way Rebels know how, fighting.
What I love most about this trailer is that they start off by paying homage to the impactful 3 seasons that came before. From season to season, we watched these characters grow from nobodies to well-known members of the rebellion. It made me want to stop what I was doing and binge watch every episode again so I could experience Ahsoka vs Darth Vader, Rex and the Clone Troopers joining, Darth Maul‘s return, Sabine and the Black Saber, and one of the best moments, when Ezra meets Kanan for the first time.
After that wonderful homage, the trailer segues perfectly into where we stand now. Grand Admiral Thrawn has captured Hera and now it’s up to an angry Kanan to save her. Meanwhile, Ezra is still balancing helping the rebellion with combatting the dark side. A test that won’t be so easy as Emperor Palpatine looks to be joining the series as it wraps up. What will happen with Ezra? How bad does Kanan’s hair actually look? Will we hear more DOOOOOOM?
We’ll find out when Disney XD begins airing the final episodes of Star Wars Rebels on February 19, 2018. Each new episode aired, will be available to watch on VOD and digital platforms the day after they air on TV and DisneyNOW premieres. Viewers can also catch all previously-aired “Star Wars Rebels” episodes from season four on the DisneyNOW App.
