The third season of Star Wars Rebels debuts on September 24th, and it promises exciting adventures and classic action to rival the previous two seasons. Main characters Ezra Bridger and Sabine Wren will lead us through the events following the end of season two: Kanan Jarrus’ blindness, and Ahsoka Tano’s death. Season three also promises a fan-favorite in the form of Grand Admiral Thrawn. This brilliant and analytical leader is featured in the famous Timothy Zahn Expanded Universe novels. The crew of the ghost, now with a base on the planet Atollon, must contend with the Empire’s growing power and escape the unbeatable Thrawn.
Sabine and Ezra’s new roles
After his meeting with former Sith Lord Darth Maul, Ezra has become closer to the dark side. His anger has come to the front. After the respective death and blindness of Ahsoka and Kanan, he is determined to not let anything hurt his friends. Thanks to the influence of the Sith Holocron, Ezra now fights more aggressively. Fights against stormtroopers ends in death instead of just injuries. With his long locks cut and his focus on defeating the empire, it’s clear we have a new leader in Ezra.
Furthermore, Sabine Wren looks to take on an even larger role. The rebel fleet comes to rely on her more and more as the danger increases. Her armor and hair color may be different, but her skills remain fresh. With Thrawn on the other side of the table, will she be able to triumph?
Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming and the general manager of Disney, said: “We are proud to bring our audience a third season of Star Wars Rebels, a series that has resonated across generations.” Buhaj added, “The creative team behind the series continues to do a brilliant job in delivering on the key tenets that fans have come to expect from a Star Wars property including adventure, hope and the battle between good vs. evil.”
