The “Star Wars Rebels” season three panel has just ended at Celebration Europe, and now the awesome new trailer that was shown there is available online, which you can check out in the video above!
Lots of great stuff to digest in that trailer, Grand Admiral Thrawn is now officially confirmed to show up, we will see Wedg Antilles e as a TIE Fighter pilot, more of Darth Maul, Mandalorians who serve the empire, new looks for the Ghost crew and so much more!
Other little bits of news revealed at the panel were that Grand Admiral Thrawn will b voiced by Lars Mikkelsen, the brother of Mads Mikkelsen.
A video message from Timothy Zahn was played, where it was announced that he worked with Dave Filoni on bringing Grand Admiral Thrawn to the show, as well as the announcement that he is writing a new novel about the character titled “Thrawn,” which will be released next April.
Doctor Who actor Tom Baker will voice the new character Bendu, who is the giant creature we see in the trailer, and sits in the middle of the light and dark side of the Force.
Two clips were shown before the trailer, where one featured Sabine & Ezra in a jet pack chase with Mandalorians, and the other was of Darth Maul interacting with Kanan and Ezra as he holds the rest of the Ghost crew hostage, where we then see Maul shoot Kanan out into space!
Regarding Ahsoka, Dave says that “It’s likely that you might not have seen the last of Ahsoka Tano.”
And uring the Q&A, Dave was asked if we would see Mara Jade show up in Rebels, to which he simply replied no, but when he was asked about Maz Kanata showing up, he just said “That is a good idea.”
Needles to say, just from this trailer and the new info we got from the panel, season three looks to be lanother great season of the series, and I can’t wait for it to begin!
