The Star Wars: Rebels Mid-Season Three Trailer Made Me Scream at the End!
Spoilers Ahead for season three of Star Wars: Rebels!
OH MAN! Star Wars dropped the new mid-season three trailer, and it looks intense! Before I talk about it, I want to post it first for you:
Well, here we go!
First and foremost, it looks like the Disney XD show is heading full steam into Rogue One. Both Saw Guerra (which Forest Whitaker reprises) and Mon Mothma make their first big Rebels debut.
Sabine looks to be coming front and center now that she has the Darksaber. It’s a show of power for the Mandalorian which is a massive potential plot moment. It could mean that the incredibly important planet of Mandalore could possibly follow Sabine to the Rebellion. Also, could this have to do with Project Black-Saber that had a shout out in Rogue One?
Finally, Thrawn is making his move against our rebels. He’s been waiting calmly in the shadows. I’m excited to see what kind of beast he truly is.
Also, there needs to be a bubble of protection placed around Agent Kallus. I’ll be devastated if anything happens to him!
Finally, we must address the biggest moment at the end of the trailer. It was the moment that made me leap up from my chair and pace around my kitchen. They teased it! They pushed for it! They got us there:
Obi-Wan Kenobi vs. Darth Maul is coming!
Maul and Kenobi haven’t seen each other since season five of Clone Wars when Darth Maul killed Duchess Satine of Mandalore. Satine was Kenobi’s long time love interested. Needless to say, Kenobi has a massive score to settle.
Star Wars: Rebels returns this Saturday with the two parter hour long special “Ghosts of Geonosis.”
