Star Wars Rebels season 3

After nearly six months of waiting, we are now just two days away from the season 3 premiere of Star Wars Rebels. But if patience isn’t your strong suit (and who could blame you, given all the exciting stuff about to go down next season?), Disney XD has dropped a couple new clips for you to pore over while you wait. In one, Ezra (Taylor Gray) consults a Sith Holocron, while in another, Ezra and Hera (Vanessa Marshall) go undercover and find themselves face-to-face with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 - Ezra Bridger

This season of Star Wars Rebels is shaping up to be a big one for fans of the stories that became Star Wars Legends when Disney took over Lucasfilm. A whole series of tales that took place within the Star Wars universe were retconned favor of a future where all of the stories that took place in a galaxy far, far away were officially tied together by the same continuity. But now one of the most beloved bad guys from Star Wars Legends will become canon again this season as Grand Admiral Thrawn enters the fray.

The blue-skinned Imperial superior officer was revealed to be joining the animated series on Disney XD during Star Wars Celebration in July, and now with the season premiere of Star Wars Rebels nearly upon us, a new trailer gives us more of a taste of the danger he poses to our Rebel heroes.
