When we last left the gang on Star Wars Rebels, they had freed an operative who had a ton of intelligence on the evil doings of the Empire and barely escaped the twirling lightsaber of death of The Inquisitor. But when the show comes back next week after a two month hiatus, the Disney XD show will be bringing back a classic Star Wars character to help Kanan and the Ghost crew on another dangerous mission.

Now we’ve got some unused footage that clears the whole thing up. (more…)
