Star Wars Rebels is gearing up for its last season on Disney XD, and the midseason finale again in November ended on a wild cliffhanger that had one character in mortal peril, one other character on a doubtlessly lethal rescue mission, and the remainder of the rebels working desperately to attempt to get well from their terrible losses courtesy of Thrawn. Principally, it has been a tough couple of months ready for brand new footage. Fortunately, a model new trailer has lastly been launched, and it reveals Emperor Palpatine himself, together with a very epic battle on Lothal. Have a look!
Properly, that is thrilling! Just one extra batch of episodes is left in Star Wars Rebels, and there was no telling if there could be time within the story of Lothal to carry again any of the most important names from the unique Star Wars trilogy. Neither Emperor Palpatine nor Darth Vader has been seen on Rebels for some time, and Thrawn has been a grand villain in his personal proper. This trailer reveals that Rebels is really pulling out all of the stops for its last run on Disney XD. Certain, there were minor signs that possibly Ian McDiarmid would possibly reprise his function once more, however who was to say that recording Star Wars audio meant Rebels? There are loads of initiatives on the market.
Curiously, Star Wars Rebels appears to have discovered a solution to carry Palpatine again with out essentially bringing him to Lothal, the place the vast majority of the motion for the remaining motion seems to be set. Palpatine might be seen within the midst of blue flames, wanting like both a Pressure ghost or a hologram. Provided that we all know he will not be lifeless at this level within the timeline and it is unlikely hologram projector would survive being planted in flames, the percentages are that Palpatine is utilizing the darkish facet of the Pressure to undertaking his picture to wherever Ezra is. His assertion that Ezra is his “finally” might point out that Palpatine has been making an attempt to show Ezra from afar by utilizing the darkish facet of the Pressure. Ezra has used the darkish facet earlier than.
The trailer contains loads of different footage that has nothing to do with Palpatine, together with Kanan going all-out on his mission to rescue Hera by utilizing what appears to be like like some significantly epic Pressure strikes to get to her. One clip reveals that they do reunite (and Hera makes a touch upon his hair after he sliced off his ponytail) and one other exhibits Hera again with the rebels, that means that Kanan did handle to avoid wasting her. Sadly, Kanan himself will not be current within the scene with all of the rebels, which… may bode badly for him. Is anyone else already stuffed with dread about his destiny?
Moreover, there’s going to be an epic battle in, on, and round Lothal. In actual fact, judging by the whole lot that is taking place, I’ve to surprise if the remainder of Star Wars Rebels will happen on Lothal, save maybe for an epilogue with Hera and/or any surviving characters. There will not be an entire lot of Lothal left, on condition that Thrawn orders a bombardment on town within the trailer. Nonetheless, it appears to be like like we’ll be getting some movie-caliber battles, some Pressure story with Ezra (and doubtless Kanan), and a few house dogfights. The Ghost continues to be going.
We’ll have to attend and see what occurs subsequent. The ultimate season of Star Wars Rebels will debut on Monday, February 19 at 9 p.m. ET. Be a part of me in crossing fingers that Kanan’s destiny is not too upsetting. If that is not your fashion, swing by our midseason TV premiere guide for non-Star Wars viewing choices.
