Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Finale Clip Gives us a Connection to The Force Awakens
The Star Wars Rebels season 2 finale is just around the corner, and while we may be dreading the terrible events that might be coming, we're still ridiculously excited to see the climax to what has been a brilliant season of TV. 

The fact that Rebels is part of the official Star Wars canon means there a number of ways it can link directly into the wider Star Wars Universe. With the likes of Lando Calrissian, Leia Organa, and Yoda all making appearances on the show, we've already seen connections to the original trilogy movies, but in a new clip from the upcoming Season 2 season finale we finally get a link to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The clip below sees Ezra, Ahsoka, and Kanan entering an ancient temple, which appears to have been the site of a horrific battle involving dozens of Jedi Knights. Whilst exploring the battlefield, we witness Ezra discover an ancient lightsaber that has a familiar looking design.



The two-part finale, 'Twilight of the Apprentice' airs on Disney XD tomorrow night, and it brings with it the prospect of seeing Darth Maul return to our screens for the first time since Star Wars: Clone Wars. But Maul won't be the only Sith apprentice making an appearance. Filoni has previously teased that Ahsoka will do battle with her one-time Jedi Master, but with Vader, Maul, and at least one Inquisitor on deck, the final showdown for Star Wars Rebels Season 2 could be even bigger than we ever imagined.
