The end is near for Disney XD animated series, Star Wars Rebels. It was announced that the upcoming fourth season would be its final, but other than the panel from Star Wars Celebration earlier this year, nothing but silence on that front about the impending goodbye.
Well not anymore.
Not only has it been announced that the show will return on Monday, October 16 with an hour-long premiere, but a new trailer for the season has been released too. Take a look at it for yourself below!
Set before the events of the original Star Wars trilogy, the show recently started further expanding itself into the official canon of the franchise by also tying heavily into Rogue One. From the looks of it that will continue on as we can clearly see the Ghost crew will be joining the Rebel Alliance. Oh yeah and the Stardust codename for the Death Star, yeah that would confirm it too. It will be nice to see a return to Lothal for once final showdown with Grand Admiral Thrawn. Plus, hey, X-Wings are finally here! WOOHOO!
What I love here is how truly epic it feels. Star Wars has always had a grand feel to a lot of things no matter what type of story it was telling and given this is the last time we’ll see these characters on our TV, it’ll be cool to see how it says goodbye and further ties itself into the event leading up to A New Hope.
If you yourself haven’t gotten the chance to catch any of Star Wars Rebels, you can go here and get started!
