Star Wars Rebels has become a fan favorite show among the legion of Star Wars fans. The show largely filled the gap that was left after the cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which was rushed off air so quickly the final season became a Netflix exclusive). The show is comprised of largely the same team, following the same art style who have actually managed to close a few plot threads from the other show—however, while Clone Wars followed young Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker between the Episode II and III films, the new series is set years later, showing the formation of the early Rebel alliance pre-Episode IV.
Now we have our first look at Star Wars Rebels Season 4, which promises to once again prove that some of the best Star Wars stuff happens outside of the movies.
This first trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 4 debuted during the panel at Star Wars Celebration. It is intense, cinematic and leads into some of the most important story telling than the previous three seasons.
On a related note: Is it weird to be more pumped for Rebels than The Last Jedi or is that just us?
All of Star Wars Rebels has been leading up to the events of Star Wars: Rogue One. Season 4 is the beginning of the end. Or is it? While it was announced that it will be the last season of the show, there may be more stories to tell. Here is what Dave Filoni had to say about it recently:
“From the very beginning, [executive producer Simon Kinberg] and I, working with the writers and story group have had a goal in mind of where we would like to get to with this, and we’ve been taking steps towards it along the way, and some surprising twists and turns even to us, but we always have a goal in mind of where we want to be. So, I think we have taken some strong steps towards that with always an eye on ‘Does the adventure continue?’ So we’ll have to see. For Sabine, hopefully the adventure will continue. That would be great because then we can change her hair again. People love that.”
The voice cast for Star Wars Rebels includes Taylor Gray as Ezra Bridger, Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan Jarrus, Vanessa Marshall as Hera Syndulla, Steve Blum as Zeb Orrelios, and Tiya Sircar as Sabine Wren. The show is Executive Produced by Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg and will debut this fall on Disney XD
