Obi-Wan Kenobi And Darth Maul Match Get Star Wars Rebels Preview Screenshots

One of the most highly anticipated moments teased in last month's Star Wars Rebels season 3 mid-season trailer is the battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi and one of his oldest enemies, the former sith who had killed off the Jedi's old master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

Now, the epic showdown between Jedi and Sith is coming in fast, with the battle scheduled to air on March 18 in a Rebels episode titled Twin Suns. The title is in reference to Tatooine, the desert planet where Luke Skywalker and the "Old Ben" Kenobi are first introduced in A New Hope. Maul being the former Sith who had directly killed off two of Kenobi's most important people, one which includes the Mandalorian leader Satine Kryze, the love of his life, the Tattoine battle between the two is definitely a fight fans look forward to.

To add to the hype, Comicbook has released a set of brand new screenshots taken from Twin Suns which can be seen below:

Star Wars Rebels season 3 airs on Saturdays at 8:30 pm ET on Disney XD.
