The Star Wars Celebration Europe Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Panel, just gave us our first look at a fan favorite villain, that many fans have been waiting forever to see! The Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Trailer debuted and not only introduced us to Grand Admiral Thrawn, but threw tons of Easter eggs at us, as well as teased storylines for the upcoming season.
Check out the trailer below,
we will of course update this article with an official version when it is available.
A few things to note about Star Wars Rebels Season 3 from the panel…
- Kanan has a new costume, complete with beard and visor.
- Ezra has an updated look as well with a very short haircut.
- Grand Admiral Thrawn seems to be the main protagonist for season 3.
- Sabine also has an updated haircut and color (yet again).
- Zeb has a new costume, sans the shoulder guards that were on his old one.
- Did you see the Outrider in the trailer??? Well no you didn’t. It is a YT-2400 model ship, but not the Outrider, and no Dash Rendar for this season.
- Darth Maul will also see his story continue in season 3, and he seems to have this deluded assumption that Ezra is his pupil.
- Still no clear word on whether Ahsoka survived her fight with Darth Vader at the end of last season.
- There will also be another look at the inter-workings of the Force, and how it affects the universe.
- Dr. Who’s Tom Baker will be voicing a the character of Bendu (spelling) for season 3.
- Maz Kanata might possibly make an appearance this season? A fan asked if she would appear in Rebels season 3, and Dave Filoni, agreed that it was a great idea. In fact he kept emphasizing how good of an idea it was.
This wasn’t revealed during the panel, but Lucasfilm has since released this poster for Season 3.
