Another day, another reboot.

Disney’s ‘The Nutcracker’ has finally found its young leading star.
We only just (officially) met the new Han Solo, but we might be seeing him onscreen longer than expected.
Just as this morning announced the grand return of Admiral Thrawn to the Star Wars universe via Rebels Season 3, new images from the fall premiere bring an even closer look at our returning big bads. Check out the full Star Wars Rebels Season 3 poster, along with some new photos and a Maul-worthy clip from today’s big premiere!
Just when you thought Star Wars Rebels couldn’t get any bigger than to include Vader himself, Season 3 gets expanded in a major way. Not only does the first official trailer confirm Grand Admiral Thrawn as a our new villain, but also a host of Star Wars favorites like Wedge Antilles, the darksaber, what looks to be the Outrider and more!
It wasn’t too long ago that Star Wars Rebels fans eagerly theorized the arrival of Clone Wars vet Ahsoka Tano in Season 1, while the Season 2 finale left it rather vague that she survived her showdown with Darth Vader. Dave Filoni downplayed the notion thereafter, but may since have found a way to return Snips for a role in Star Wars Rebels Season 3.
Emma Watson’s most recent movie might have been an epic flop in U.K. theaters last weekend, but I have a hunch that her next film might be a wee bit bigger. Just a smidge.
The animated arm of Star Wars got a major pat with news that Rogue One would feature Forest Whitaker as a character created for The Clone Wars cartoon, further brightening prospects for current series Rebels to tie in with the films. Things are looking good on that front for Season 3 as well, at least according to executive producer Simon Kinberg.
Let’s hope they don’t wreck it.
It’ll be some time yet before Star Wars branches into any TV or movie properties concurrent with the Force Awakens timeline, but that won’t stop shows like LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures from having fun with the past and present. Not only do some major classic Star Wars characters put in appearances for the new trailer, but so too does fan-favorite Maz Kanata.
