Both Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One keep difficult tasks, to dance around events of the original Star Wars without disturbing them. Rebels in particular came dangerously close with Ezra’s discovery of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but as producer Dave Filoni explains, no one will go looking for the Clone Wars general just yet.
The final Star Wars Rebels duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul was meant to close off wayward continuity, not add to it. Still, some of Obi-Wan’s words to his fallen adversary wound up confusing fans, for which Star Wars writer Pablo Hidalgo clarifies who the true “chosen one” is.
Star Wars Rebels has come to yet another temporary close with Season 3 finale “Zero Hour,” dealing the title heroes a harsh blow, and moving us one step closer to the Star Wars films. To wit, producers promise both Rogue One’s Saw Gerrera and Mon Mothma will return in Season 4, which already has its first concept art.
Now that the space-dust has settled on one of Star Wars Rebels’ most anticipated showdowns, Season 3 is already preparing for this Saturday’s “Zero Hour” endgame. Thrawn looms large over the full set of photos, as well as a fresh clip from the hour-long event.
Star Wars Rebels finally circled back to give Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi one last showdown, and … well, if you’ve seen Star Wars, you could probably guess its outcome.

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.
Star Wars Rebels is preparing to tie off a major continuity knot with a final showdown between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul, though it’s worth wondering how else a fan-favorite like Maul could have impacted the Star Wars we know. Case in point, showrunners reveal the Season 2 fight that might have seen Vader cutting down Maul, and why said foe endured.
Like DuckTales before it, Disney XD’s Big Hero 6 animated series has yet to declare an official premiere, but there’s good news in store. Prepare a hearty fist-bump for a Season 2 renewal, while a new teaser and photo highlights the returning cast.
Ask anyone what the most basic appeal of Guardians of the Galaxy boils down to, and you’ll inevitably hear some combination of “talking raccoon and tree.” So it is, that Disney XD, Academy Award-nominated Passion Pictures, and director Arnaud Delord have brought us twelve new Rocket & Groot shorts to celebrate the pair, the first of which you can watch right now.
Once again, Star Wars Rebels will hinge its endgame around the climactic showdown of two legendary Star Wars foes. Where last year brought us Darth Vader against his former apprentice, Season 3 will see an older Obi-Wan Kenobi in a final battle with Darth Maul, and we’ve got new “Twin Suns” footage and photos to prove it.
