Disney Releases Explosive New Trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 2
With press conferences, panels and preview screenings, Star Wars Rebels has a big day ahead of it at New York Comic Con today, but as if all that wasn't enough Disney has released a brand new trailer for the show, which returns to our screens next week. Posted via the Star Wars Tumblr page, the trailer features a ton of new footage, and might also have a few major spoilers in there depending on how you read into it.

It looks like Dave Filoni is going to continue to link Rebels with his earlier creation, Star Wars: Clone Wars, because if I'm not mistaken, that looked like a major hint towards House Vizsla of Mandalore. Other nods to Clone Wars were less subtle and more expected, with Captain Rex and the other clones featuring heavily and the famous Pirate, Hondo getting some nice airtime.

On the other side, this is continuing to feel more and more like an original trilogy property thanks to those glorious shots of B-Wings and Interdictors. That line of AT-ATs was like something straight out of the Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, and hearing the Emperor's voice was all kinds of chilling. But there's no denying who the star of the show was, though. Ahsoka is clearly going to be a major part of this show going forward, and it will be fascinating to see how her powers have evolved.

Update: Disney has now also released a new clip from the show, which was screened during the Star Wars Rebels panel today at New York Comic Con.
