At last, Star Wars Rebels has reached the final outings of its second season, that all those Force-goodies from the midseason trailer have come home to roost. And where the trailer only teased it, see Darth Maul’s full return in a new clip and photos from Rebels’ Season 2 finale!

Star Wars Rebels has more than distinguished itself from its Clone Wars predecessor, though the Season 2 introduction of Ahsoka Tano guaranteed we’d see the erstwhile “Snips” face off against her former master. That day is soon upon us, but in the meantime, relive their loving mentor-padawan relationship in a new retrospect.
Darth Vader may continue to menace Star Wars Rebels for as long as continuity dictates, but it stands to reason that the show’s third year might look to a baddie with more creative license. Enter a new rumor, that Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will revive a bit of expanded universe canon cast off by The Force Awakens, returning one of its most famous villains.
If any rumor runs longer than word of a new Star Wars trilogy, it might be the promise of a live-action TV series set in the same galaxy far, far away, one which has been through multiple iterations over the last decade. Now, Lucasfilm bosses and other insiders officially shoot down hopes for a Star Wars tie-in on TV, not wanting the follow the Marvel path.
Apart from teasing some incredible action to the back half of Season 2, Star Wars Rebels got tongues wagging with a new trailer that seemingly promised ties to The Force Awakens. There was Kylo Ren’s lightsaber and a masked figure sounding suspiciously like Supreme Leader Snoke, and now supervising director Dave Filoni answers if Rebels will really introduce a major movie tie-in.
We’ve been heavily anticipating the return of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, not solely for introducing Princess Leia into the prequel series, but the latest sneak peek seals the deal. The most intense trailer for the series yet brings back a host of classic favorites, seemingly pulling Ezra to the Dark Side as well but … what’s this about about a nod to The Force Awakens’ Kylo Ren?
Yesterday brought word that Star Wars Rebels would take Princess Leia back to the past, even if Carrie Fisher wasn’t along for the ride, and today we have our best look yet. See for yourself, as the adopted daughter of Alderaan runs afoul of Kanan and Ezra in the latest clip and photos of January 20 outing “A Princess on Lothal!”
Sidelined though she may have been, Princess General Leia thrilled fans with Carrie Fisher’s return to the role for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now we’ll get the opportunity to see the original Star Wars heroine in a new light. As long expected, Princess Leia will pop up on Star Wars Rebels this season, but will Carrie Fisher be along for the ride?
Part of the charm to Disney’s Star Wars Rebels has been the opportunity to hear Original Trilogy stars reprising their iconic roles, from James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader to Billy Dee Williams’ Lando. We’ve even heard Frank Oz’s Yoda, but now the character is confirmed for a full Season 2 appearance, along with another major returning character from the franchise.
The amount of Star Wars news flooding the internet could fill an entire galaxy, near or far, but the latest will take us a bit longer ago than The Force Awakens. Star Wars Rebels will officially return for Season 3 in 2016, keeping the crew of the Ghost fighting the Empire for another year.
