Just last week, a new poster for Star Wars Rebels Season 4 was released and now the synopses for the first 6 episodes has been revealed, which will show the Ghost crew's final battles up against Grand Admiral Thrawn and his forces. The wildly popular animated series will have Season 4 take place during the time period between Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One/A New Hope. Season 4 will be the final season of the popular series, so it will also resolve a few loose plot threads that fans have wondered about through the previous three seasons.
At the end of Season 3, our heroes escaped the evil clutches of Thrawn after the destruction of their base on Atollon and the death of Commander Sato. Season 4 will reportedly dig in deeper about the mysterious connection between Ezra, Kanan and the wolves and the Mandalorian Civil War. Jedi Insider reports that Star Wars Rebels Season 4 will bridge both Rebels and The Clone Wars as it leads into the events of Rogue One. The series has never backed away from tying in with the other Star Wars properties. The season will begin with the fight against the Empire at Mandalore and the arrival of Saw Gerrera, who is voiced by Forest Whitaker.
The first episode of Star Wars Rebels Season 4 is entitled "Heroes of Mandalore: Part One" and it finds Sabine leading Ezra, Kanan and an army of her fellow Mandalorians back to her home world to rescue her father from the clutches of the Empire. Episode two is "Heroes of Mandalore: Part 2," which continues where the first episode left off when Sabine discovers that the Empire has resurrected a devastating weapon she created and plans to use it against her people. She must decide whether to destroy it or use the weapon herself.
Episode 3 of the fourth season of Star Wars Rebels, "In the Name of the Rebellion: Part One" takes place as members of the Rebel Alliance, Ezra and the Ghost Crew must accept a mission to spy on an Imperial outpost that they would much rather destroy. Episode 4 is called "In the Name of the Rebellion: Part Two" and it finds Ezra and Sabine separated from Hera and Kana. Ezra and Sabine join the desperate quest of Saw Gerrera to hunt down the Empire's elusive secret super weapon.
Episode 5 is entitled "The Occupation" and takes place when Ezra and the Ghost Crew are called back to Lothal when a new Imperial threat arises. Episode 6 is "Flight of the Defender" and finds Ezra and Sabine as they steal an Imperial prototype TIE Fighter. The duo find that they must rely on some unexpected help to escape from Thrawn.
Jedi Insider also reports that the episodes will air on Mondays, multiple times a day, from October 15th to October 29th. As previously mentioned, It looks as if we are going to learn more about the unknown connection between Ezra, Kanan and the wolves that has been teased before, the Mandalorian civil war, and possibly even answers about Ahsoka Tano's fate after her encounter with her former master during the season 2 finale. The final season of Star Wars Rebels is shaping up to be an action-packed final season for the animated series.
