After Disney bought Lucasfilm, the first new part of the Star Wars saga they produced was Star Wars Rebels. Early on the show defined what the franchise’s new canon would and could become in a post-George Lucas world. But now, just as the movies are getting ready for their second act, Rebels is ready for its final one.
For its first three seasons, executive producer Dave Filoni and his team have told the story of Ezra Bridger, a young boy strong with the Force, who befriends a rogue group working as part of a growing Rebel Alliance. Along the way, the show has introduced several new fan favorite characters, as well as featured appearances from Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, Lando Calrissian, Princess Leia, Mon Mothma, and others. But even when the show connects to the movies, it’s always been focused on the journey of Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Zeb, Sabine, and Chopper, and their role in fighting the Empire.
