In case you didn’t see this week’s episode of Rebels Recon, it’s recently been announced that Star Wars Rebels is going to take a break that will last until after the release of The Force Awakens. The show will be returning this January, and recent details about what to expect in the second half of this season have been unveiled by Lucasfilm.
The following details were mentioned in the Rebels Recon video:
- The next episode – arriving some time in January – will pick up where Kanan, Ezra, and Chopper left off on Lothal with their new ally.
- Sabine’s past as a Mandalorian is explored in greater detail; several Mandalorians will also appear.
- Zeb’s life as one of the last surviving members of his species is explored.
- Cham Syndulla, who is Hera’s father, will appear and will be reunited with her. Ryloth’s status quo after the events of Lords Of The Sith will be revealed.
- Other characters from The Clone Wars will be introduced and/or will be included more prominently in future episodes.
- The Ghost crew as a whole get “shaken up” by the end of the season, but form a stronger bond because of it.
- Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader will have a long-awaited duel.
It doesn’t appear as though the new season will have the two-week hiatuses that troubled the last season, so the remaining eleven episodes should be out by the end of March or the beginning of April.
