Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Premiere Date Announced in New Teaser
After Season 2's epic finale, interest in Disney's Star Wars Rebels has never been higher. Mysteries surrounding Ahsoka's fate, Ezra's battle with the Dark Side, and Kanan's struggle with losing his sight, have all left fans of the show desperate to find out when it will return for a third season. After a long, painful wait, that question has finally been answered by way of a new teaser released by Disney XD. Clear your calendars, because Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD on September 24th at 8:30pm.



For those who weren't in attendance at Star Wars Celebration, the special hour-long season premiere will be the first chance to witness the return of Grand Admiral Thrawn to Star Wars canon. After the Legends Universe in which Thrawn was created was removed from the official canon, fans of the legendary Imperial Admiral have been desperate to see him return. Dave Filoni, ever mindful of what fans wants has collaborated with the author who created Thrawn, Timothy Zahn, to ensure that the first on-screen appearance of the character is exactly how we always imagined it to be. 

In addition to watching the new teaser, get a more detailed look at what's in store for the Ghost crew with this official Season 3 synopsis.

Opening quote
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
