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.

If you can’t decide what to watch this weekend, ScreenCrush’s Staff Picks are here to help. They’re like the recommendations at an old video store, except you don’t have to put on pants or go outside to get them. Here are five things to watch this weekend:
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. Still, Rebels boss Dave Filoni now explains why the rematch went as it did, and how it simultaneously pays tribute to both Seven Samurai and The Phantom Menace.
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.
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.
Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels has achieved a crossover success significantly higher than its animated predecessor, and their battle with the Empire is far from over. As Season 3 prepares for a climactic endgame, Lucasfilm confirms Season 4 will bow in fall 2017.
Star Wars fan fervor has understandably moved from Rogue One to The Last Jedi, but can Star Wars Rebels swing the needle back? Yet another of the Star Wars Story players is making their animated return, as our first clip from “Secret Cargo” sees Genevieve O’Reilly back in her Rogue One role.
Star Wars may have taken place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but any Indiana Jones fan could tell you the two tales share some surprising links in the form of various easter eggs. Now, Star Wars Rebels is in on the fun with its own Indy gag, along with other Ralph McQuarrie and The Force Awakens nods from this Saturday’s latest.
