In the latest installment of Rebels Recon, StarWars.com explores the new television-movie ushering in the second season of Star Wars Rebels, “The Siege of Lothal.”

At Lucasfilm headquarters, Andi Gutierrez, social media correspondent at StarWars.com, spoke with the cast about the obstacles faced by the Ghost crew in Season Two and what dynamic characters like Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader bring to the story.

“What makes Ahsoka so dangerous is if she were to figure out who Darth Vader is, it’s a big threat to him,” said executive producer Dave Filoni. Henry Gilroy, co-executive producer, revealed it was stressful to write Vader as the same terrifying villain that George Lucas had presented in “A New Hope.”

After another exciting segment with the Chopper cam, StarWars.com managed to corner Pablo Hidalgo of the Lucasfilm Story Group with questions from fans on social media. We learn that Kanan was born only a few days before Luke and Leia, and that the armor worn by the Stormtroopers in Rebels isn’t much different than what is seen in the original films. This fun piece of trivia is then followed by an explosive clip of the upcoming episode, “The Lost Commanders!”
