By B. Alan Orange — September 2nd, 2017

All paths come together when Star Wars Rebels Season 4 premieres Monday, October 16 on Disney XD. And it's going to be quite the run of episodes, as this fan-favorite series brings everything to a close this fall. Today, we have an all-new trailer featuring never-before-seen moments that are sure to excite fans of all ages as Star Wars Rebels officially connects to the events of Rogue One.

The Emmy-nominated animated series Star Wars Rebels will close out its epic story starting Monday, October 16 (12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney XD and the Disney XD App. Things will blast off with a one-hour episode that marks the beginning of the most important mission yet for the Ghost crew. The series is drawing in closer to it's grand finale. And as you can see from this latest sneak peek, there are going to be more than just a few big surprises along the way.

In this final season of Star Wars Rebels, the Ghost crew joins the growing Rebel Alliance, struggling to unite against the Galactic Empire. However, when a new Imperial threat arises on Lothal, Ezra leads the crew back to his home world to defeat the oppressive forces of the Empire under the command of cunning Grand Admiral Thrawn. Old friends are reunited and new alliances are forged as the series builds to its epic conclusion.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Academy Award nominee Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Emmy nominee Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg, and co-executive produced by Emmy nominee Henry Gilroy.

The returning voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, David Oyelowo as Kallus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn. Warwick Davis joins the cast this season as Rukh, Admiral Thrawn's deadly assassin.

Before season four premieres, you can catch up on all of the Star Wars Rebels episodes from season one through season three available anytime on the Disney XD App beginning Thursday, September 28 (12:01 a.m. PDT).

It has long been believed that Star Wars Rebels Season 4 will include a major crossover with Rogue One, showing the events of that movie from these characters point-of-view. And its a popular fan theory that Ezra may actually grow up to be Benicio Del Toro's DJ character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Or perhaps he is Snoke. One thing that has been confirmed is that these latest episodes will introduce the X-Wing fighters. They haven't been previously seen on the show because they haven't existed up until this point in the timeline. And when they do show up, it is said to be quite special. You can take a look at the latest sneak peek here thanks to Star Wars Youtube Channel.
