If you’re a Star Wars Rebels fan, you’ve likely been chomping at the bit for season 2. I’m glad we had Star Wars Rebels: The Siege Of Lothal back in June, but I’ve been dying to see the crew of the Ghost back in action again.
Thankfully, Lucasfilm and Disney have announced new episodes starting Wednesday, October 14th (9:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and it sounds like things are going to get even more complicated and dangerous. New Inquisitors, the return of Captain Rex and other fan favorites (yay Hondo!), and our first real look into the back stories of our Rebels.
There’s also a new clip that fans of The Clone Wars are really going to love. For myself, I’m always amused by Kanan’s stubborn streak, which is definitely on display here.
Not to mention, Disney XD shared a new poster for season 2 and I love it.
If you’re not caught up on season one or you just want to watch it as a refresher, Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD this coming Tuesday, September 1st so you’ll have time before the premiere.
I can’t wait.
Watch the clip and check out the official synopsis and new poster after the break.
In “Star Wars Rebels” Season Two, past lives will be revealed and the destiny of our heroes will be changed forever. The transformative new season resumes with Imperial oppression on Lothal growing stronger and the rebels seeking out new allies and additional resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost enlists some old friends: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars. As the rebels grow in number, so do their enemies. New Inquisitors are dispatched by Darth Vader and sent to crush any threat of rebellion. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels – the bond of our rebel crew will be put to the test like never before.
