“I will pull the Rebels apart piece by piece.”
As we get closer to the premiere of Star Wars Rebels season three, we have a new trailer, clip, and news regarding the return of Katee Sackoff.
The trailer offers us some great new footage from the series teasing what’s in store for us, and at one point we see a quick shot of Darth Maul and Kanan looking like they are possessed by some kind of green energy. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but we’ll find out.
The clip is called “Mind Trick,” and it shows Ezra using the Force in a deadly new way. It’s like he’s testing out the dark side of it.
Then there’s the news that Sackoff (Battlestar Galactica) will reprise her role as the fierce Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze. The character made her debut in the Clone Wars series and was a part of a Mandalorian splinter group known as the Death Watch. After her leader, Pre Vizsla, was killed by Darth Maul, she joined forces with Obi-wan Kenobi briefly. It will be interesting to see what she’s up to now.
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical, and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In Season Three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet — a direct assault on the Empire.
Star Wars Rebels returns Saturday, September 24th.
