New Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Trailer Features Grand Admiral Thrawn, Darth Maul, and Bo-Katan

With only a couple of weeks away from the premiere of Star Wars Rebels Season 3, it makes sense that we're seeing a lot of fresh promotional content for Disney XD's animated series. Just recently, we learned that Katee Sackhoff is reprising her role as Bo-Katan. The trailer shows new footage teasing returning characters, including Bo-Katan, Darth Maul, and the fan-favorite Grand Admiral Thrawn. It looks like Darth Maul and Kanan are possessed with some kind of green energy, and we still have no idea what exactly it is. 

A new clip was also released, called "Mind Trick", and it features Ezra using the Force in a dangerous way as if he's testing out its Dark Side. Check it out: 




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.

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will premiere on September 24 at 8:30 pm with the two-part episode Steps Into Shadow on Disney XD.
