Over the past three seasons, the crew of The Ghost in Star Wars Rebels have gone from rabble-rousers thwarting the Empire at any opportunity, to members of the budding Rebel Alliance. It started with Ezra Bridger running into Hera Syndulla, Kannan Jarrus, and the others on Lothal, and has since taken them to all parts of the galaxy on their many missions. Along the way, they have encountered notable Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, Asoka Tano, Saw Gerrera, R2-D2 and C-3PO, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia, Yoda, Grand Admiral Thrawn, and many others, firmly cementing itself within the Star Wars universe.
The upcoming fourth season has been announced to be the show’s final season, and in the recently released new trailer, it will premiere on Monday, October 16.
In the season 3 finale, the crew of The Ghost managed to survive a battle against the Empire at Atollon, escaping from Thrawn and making their way to the Rebel base on Yavin IV. The trailer for the new season shows that the fight against the Empire is getting much more fierce. Mandalore is placed on lockdown, while Sabine Wren works to muster a resistance among her people. Saw Guererra urges the Rebellion that they can no longer fight on the Empire’s terms, but Mon Mothma does not think they are ready for open war. Thrawn orders the capture of Captain Hera Syndulla. Ezra struggles with his own issues, and Kanan and Hera talk about plans for their future.
It is very likely that the end of the series could lead right into the events of Rogue One, given that we’ve already seen characters like Saw Gerrera and Grand Moff Tarkin. The above trailer also specifically references Orson Krennic and Stardust – the project name for the Death Star.
Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels premieres Monday, October 16 on Disney XD.
