With the highly-anticipated Star Wars Rebels Season 3 finale airing next week on Disney XD, the network has unveiled the trailer for this last episode of the season. This latest footage teases that Grand Admiral Thrawn is launching the first wave of his attack, attempting to bring the Rebellion to an end. We get to see some of this epic battle, which makes it clear that this year is going out with a bang. We'll have to wait and see how this two-part episode, entitled "Zero Hour," changes the landscape for the show.
Disney XD released this trailer on their YouTube channel, which comes just a few weeks after Disney XD renewed Star Wars Rebels for Season 4. Production is underway on the fourth season of the acclaimed animated series from Lucasfilm. It is scheduled to premiere on Disney XD later this year continuing the thrilling and inspiring galactic adventures of the Ghost crew.
Currently in its powerful third season, Star Wars Rebels continues to drive the Star Wars saga into new, unexplored realms of the galaxy, promising new surprises and action-packed adventure. Fans can look forward to more details and an announcement about the exciting fourth season of "Star Wars Rebels" during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this April. There were rumors that the show may be coming to an end after Season 4, but that's obviously not the case. Though, rumors persist that LucasFilm is already developing new TV shows to take over for Star Wars Rebels when it does end, much like how this show filled the void left when Star Wars: The Clone Wars went off the air.
Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg. The Season Three 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 Agent Kallus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Sam Witwer as Maul, Tom Baker as Bendu and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn.
