A new trailer for the season finale of Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels teases the ultimate showdown between the Ghost crew and their Imperial pursuers. The series will come to an end on March 5 after four seasons. The finale will be broken into two episodes -- “A Fool’s Hope” and “Family Reunion – and Farewell.”
Star Wars Rebels has been wrapping up some loose plot threads in preparation for the series’ end. Longtime mentor and series regular Kanan Jarrus sacrificed himself in the midseason premiere so that the Ghost crew’s captain, Hera, could live. The episode “Wolves and a Door” revealed the fate of fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano after her showdown with Darth Vader.
Judging from the new trailer, the finale will see series protagonist Ezra Bridger finally fulfill his destiny as a Jedi and confront the Galactic Empire head-on. That means going up against Emperor Palpatine himself, as voiced by actor Ian McDiarmid.
Airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels stars Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, David Oyelowo as Kallus, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn as Governor Pryce, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn and Warwick Davis as Rukh.
