During the Star Wars Rebels panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017, several bombshells were dropped about the upcoming season 4. The first was the Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Trailer, which you can see below. In it we see Ezra with a modified Scout Trooper helmet, custom painted by Sabine, Sabine and Ezra riding some sort of huge wolf, Hera and Kanan sharing a tender moment, Thrawn, U-Wings, X-Wings, and more!
Warwick Davis was also announced as a new cast member for season 4. The actor will be playing the character of Rukh. Heir to the Empire find will remember this as one of Thrawn’s bodyguards. In the Legends canon, Ruhk was a deadly and stealthy warrior, and was often at Thrawn’s side while the Grand Admiral waged his military campaign against the New Republic.
The last bit of news is more of a sad note. Dave Filoni announced that season 4 would be the last season of Star Wars Rebels. He reiterated that this doesn’t mean an end to Star Wars animation, just an end for this series. He went on to indicate that this final season would be darker and more exciting that those coming before.
About Star Wars Rebels:
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
