Star Wars Rebels returns this Monday on Disney X.D. for its final episodes. Two new clips for ‘Jedi Night’ have been released and I think no one is ready for the level of feels that is coming with these episodes!
The first clip is Kanan asking Ezra to come up with a plan to save Hera as he can’t do it himself considering how he feels about her. And the second clip is another powerful moment with Kanan cutting his hair with a wonderful piece of soundtrack by Kevin Kiner!
A third clip has been released!
During an investor call, Bob Iger confirmed that there are multiple Star Wars TV series in development for the Disney streaming service. His exact words were “a few Star Wars series specifically” are being created! He didn’t say if it was live-action or animated but it’s great news that more TV series are coming! According to Iger people will be pleased with the creators they are talking to and once the deal is finalized on the first series, we can expect an announcement!
With Johnson’s trilogy, the new series of Star Wars films and this news, Star Wars has a bright future ahead!
German Bibliothek found the synopses for the episodes that will air on February 29! It looks like there will be some Force-centered content!
“Wolves and a Door”
Ezra and the Ghost crew learn the Empire has plans for the Jedi Temple on Lothal.
“A World Between Worlds”
While the other rebels engage the Imperial forces outside the Jedi temple, Ezra gains access inside and experiences a revelation.
The mid-season 4 trailer is finally here and it’s a doozy! The first half of the trailer is more of a recap of what happened before for Ezra and starting at 1:21 you really see footage from the new episodes with the appearance of Darth Sidious and some connections to the Mortis arc from The Clone Wars! Also the mid-season premiere date is now confirmed – February 19, unlike what was first reported that had it on February 24. The official website revealed the airing schedule of the final episodes:
Monday February 19
“Jedi Night” & “DUME“
Monday February 26
“Wolves and a Door” & “A World Between Worlds“
Monday March 5
“A Fool’s Hope” & “Family Reunion – and Farewell“
We finally know when Star Wars Rebels will be back for its final episodes and there’s still some time to wait – February 24! It also seems the show will be back with a one episode per week schedule. The synopsis of the episode “DUME” hints at the death of a major character and it could be Kanan, considering Dume is actually Kanan’s real name – Caleb Dume! Even if it’s not him who dies, someone from the team definitely does.
“Jedi Night”: The Ghost crew infiltrates the Imperial headquarters on Lothal to save one of their own.
“DUME”: Reeling from a devastating loss, the Ghost crew rallies together to find a new purpose and resolve.
UPDATE: Tracy Cannobio, Lucasfilm’s publicist said there was some incorrect info about the return date of Star Wars Rebels and that the official date will be announced within a week!
Rain Johnson creating a new Star Wars trilogy wasn’t the only big news yesterday, Bob Iger, chairman CEO of Disney, announced they are planning a live-action TV series that will air on the Disney streaming service. The service is expected to launch at the end of 2019.
For now this is all we know about this live-action TV series.
Yesterday on Wikipedia, I saw two new titles being listed for Star Wars Rebels but I wasn’t sure if these were correct as there was no source. However, Jedi-Bibliothek seems to have gotten confirmation of it. These episodes will air in January 2018 when the show returns from its hiatus.
