The celebration continues! With ROGUE ONE now out on Blu-ray, the stand-alone STAR WARS Story has linked with the popular animated adventures STAR WARS REBELS and the latest sneak peek at the upcoming new Season 4 trailer is setting things up for a final battle!
The STAR WARS animated adventures including Clone Wars and its follow-up Star Wars Rebels have done a brilliant job of extending the narrative and continuing the escapades, often filling out the gaps in major arcs that the feature films only have a minute to touch upon, or as in the case of Rebels help flesh out the origins of the rising resistance that eventually leads to the downfall of the Galactic Empire.
The animated Star Wars Rebels introduced such a band of fighters, the first of a growing number that begin to organize to fight the tightening grip the Emperor exerts through his military forces and threatens to the freedoms of all sentient people across the galaxy. Under the leadership of Captain Hera Syndulla and her crew aboard the Ghost the group discovers the force-sensitive Ezr Bridger and the Jedi Kanan Jarras finds
a renewed purpose.
The crew of the Ghost eventually fall in with the larger, more organized rebel force known as the Phoenix Squadron, the battle really begins! Set between the events of Episode III and Episode IV and elaborating on events that lead up to Rogue One (the Ghost even makes an appearance amid the ships parked in the hanger of the Rebel Base on Yavin IV) the plot is thickening and is leading to a mighty crescendo!
Check out the Trailer for the upcoming Season 4 (and perhaps the final arc) of Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars Rebels returns for its Season 4 on Disney XD in September.
