For some time now, Disney XD has been promoting that Star Wars Rebels Season 2 will return this fall. However, the channel has not revealed an exact date leaving fans to wonder if “fall” means September, October, or November. This issue might be finally put to rest with news coming in that New York Comic-Con 2015 will host a Star Wars Rebels Season 2 preview.
The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes on the same stage from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolffe — three clones from the hit animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from the show, Ahsoka Tano, who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of Season One.
This is very telling, that the show will most likely return this October to Disney XD for season 2. The press release reveals that New York Comic-Con will have an exclusive screening of two new episode that feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolfe. Wookipedia has listed the season premiere episode in the fall as an episode titled, “The Lost Commanders” (not counting The Seige of Lothal). This episode is the series debut of those three characters. If the “exclusive new screening” has those three characters in them, and if Wookipedia is accurate, then we can expect an October release for season 2 of Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars Rebels returns with new episodes this fall on Disney XD.
