Lucasfilm has released a new trailer for the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels, along with a release date: October 16th, 2017.
The new trailer shows off quite a bit to look forward to: space battles between the Empire and Rebels, the Imperial occupation of Mandalore, the introduction of X-Wings to the Alliance, and of course, Grand Admiral Thrawn and his Noghri assassin, Rukh.
There’s some major connections to last year’s standalone film, Rogue One: Saw Gerrera also makes an appearance, highlighting some of the divisions between his rebel cell and the larger Rebel Alliance. There’s other connections as well: we see some Deathtroopers and Grand Moff Tarkin, while Director Krennic is mentioned along with the Death Star’s code name, Stardust.
Lucasfilm announced that Season 4 would be the final one for the show during this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, teasing that the show would go out on a high note. The first trailer highlighted Ezra’s journey, and showed off some connections with The Clone Wars and Rogue One.
Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels premieres on October 16th.
