In just a few short days, the final season of Star Wars Rebels will debut on Disney XD, but for fans who may need to catch up with the first three seasons, you're in luck. Disney XD has put together a comprehensive yet succinct video that recaps the main plot points from the first three seasons of Star Wars Rebels, to get fans ready for the Star Wars Rebels Season 4 premiere on Monday, October 16, airing at several times throughout the day at 12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 PM on Disney XD or the Disney XD app. This new five-minute video won't be enough for fans trying to go into Season 4 completely blind, but there is a way to catch up completely.
If you'd rather try to binge all three seasons this weekend, you can catch all of the Star Wars Rebels episodes on the Disney XD App. For fans who are looking for a bit of a refresher on the series, since it's been roughly seven months since the Season 3 finale aired, this video will certainly get you up to speed. Some of the major highlights from the show featured in this video are Ahsoka Tano's epic lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, the emergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn, the final duel between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ezra's drastic hairstyle change, the powerful Darksaber and much more.
The one-hour episode marks the beginning of the most important mission yet for the Ghost crew as the series draws closer to its grand finale. In this final season, 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.
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. Showrunner and executive producer Dave Filoni also shot down a rumor last month that Director Orson Krennic, the character played by Ben Mendelsohn in last year's blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, won't be appearing in the fourth and final season.
This season kicks off with two separate two-part episodes, Heroes of Mandalore Part 1 and 2, and In the Name of the Rebellion Part One and Two. Heroes of Mandalore 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, where they discover that the Empire has resurrected an immensely powerful weapon. In the Name of the Rebellion follows the Ghost crew as they are sent to spy on an Imperial outpost while Ezra and Sabine join Saw Gerrera on his quest to find this powerful weapon.
