Now that we’ve thoroughly put the matter of Darth Maul vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi to bed, Star Wars Rebels is gearing up for Season 3's hour-long endgame. See for yourself in the first trailer, as Thrawn makes his final strike on the Rebels, a familiar face returns, and a few Rogue One baddies come out to play.
The full trailer sees not only Sabine returning to aid the fight (with a few Mandalorians in tow), but also Thrawn flanked by the “Death Troopers” that first appeared in Rogue One. Lothal may not be the only world in jeopardy, either, as AT-ATs are seen advancing on the rebel base.
So reads the “Zero Hour” finale synopsis:
In final preparations for their attack on Lothal, Phoenix Squadron’s plans are disrupted when Grand Admiral Thrawn discovers their location.
Trapped on Atollon with the rebel base under siege, Hera and Kanan fight to keep the squadron alive, as Ezra attempts to rally help from an unexpected source.
At the very least, we know Star Wars Rebels will return for a fourth season, details of which will emerge at this year’s Star Wars Celebration. Watch the trailer again above, and stay tuned for more on next week’s finale.
