For fans of the Star Wars Legends collection of stories, Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels is gearing to be the most epic season yet! After Disney took over Lucasfilm, most of the spin-off novels that were written prior were considered non-canon. However, with the creation of the Star Wars Legends, we got some reassurance that some stories were given the official stamp of canon approval and would be officially tied into the current Star Wars timeline.
One of the biggest and baddest characters to come from the Star Wars Legends series is Grand Admiral Thrawn. He is set to make his grand appearance in the Star Wars Rebels two-part premiere and make a huge impact on the Rebels early on.
In the new Season 3 trailer for the series, we get a good look at Grand Admiral Thrawn and what he has in store for the Rebels. The Rebels do not look like they are going to be dealt a good hand this season. We see Thrawn deliver his infamous speech, something that has been popping up quite a bit in the Star Wars Rebels promotional material for this season. It looks like he is delivering the speech to a captured Hera.
We also get a glimpse of a Darth Maul with glowing green eyes, indicating he may be possessed. This seems to happen again to Kanan later on, who we see attacking Ezra in a seconds long segment. There is definitely a lot to see in this short 30 second trailer, so definitely watch it again and again. If that’s not motivation, make Grand Admiral Thrawn your motivation because he is just so darn villainous.
The new season of Star Wars Rebels premieres Saturday, September 24 at 8:30PM on Disney XD.
