‘Star Wars Rebels’ Season 3 Trailer Returns Thrawn, Wedge Antilles and More!
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!
Star Wars Celebration brought us the official trailer for Rebels Season 3, featuring the some-what expected introduction of expanded universe villain Grand Admiral Thrawn as a major thorn in the Ghost crew’s side. Sherlock star Lars Mikkelsen (brother to Rogue One’s Mads) will voice the role, while creator Timothy Zahn has also confirmed a new book on the way.

Elsewhere, the nearly four-minute trailer brought plenty to see (not unironic for bearded Kanan, who is seen with restored sight at several instances through the footage), including the return of Darth Maul, Sabine taking on Mandalorian stormtroopers with her own jetpack (and darksaber!), and Ezra slipping just a little closer to the dark side. We also caught a young Wedge Antilles making his debut as a TIE pilot, along with an Outrider-looking ship (director Dave Filoni confirmed Dash Rendar won’t make an appearance) and more.
We also know Gary Whitta will likely pen an episode, but what else might Rebels Season 3 bring to the table?
