There is no denying it, Star Wars is as hot as it has even been…even more so in a lot of ways. So let’s take count…9 feature films, 2 animated TV series, and 2 more films in production. There has never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. As the initial merchandise for Star Wars: The Last Jedi goes on sale, fans were blessed with more awesome new Star Wars adventures coming their way.
Today, the trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 4 was released. Sadly this will be the last season of the beloved series and as the end approaches, it looks like they are pulling out all of the stops. Clocking in at a little over three minutes, if this trailer doesn’t get you excited for this season of Rebels, then you’re just a scruffy looking nerf herder.
There is a lot to be excited for, this new season is going to be full of nerd squealing Star Wars awesomeness.
Yep, you saw it…the workhorse of the Rebel fleet, the X-Wing fighter makes its long awaited debut. It was thrilling to see them come out of hyperspace and lock their s-foils into attack position.
Did you catch the mention of Director Krennic and his Project Stardust? It should sound familiar to anyone who has seen Rouge One. This mention of Stardust, along with another appearance of Grand Moff Tarkin provides an excellent tie-in to Galen Erso, Jyn Erso, and events in Rogue One. Saw Guerrera also has a cameo this season to lay some nuggets of truth on this band of new Rebel fighters.
3. Back to Lothal
Returning to where it all began, Ezra returns to his home planet to once again help free it and its population from the clutches of the Empire.
And it looks like the Mandalorians will also play a big part this season. All in all, it looks like this is going to be an action-packed season that will ensure that Rebels goes out with a bang.
The new season of Star Wars Rebels kicks off Monday, October 16 on Disney XD with a one-hour episode.
