    Fingers crossed for some Krennic and Thrawn interaction.

    • September 3, 2017 at 2:27 am

      If you haven’t already and want that interaction then I suggest you read the books.

      • September 3, 2017 at 3:34 am

        Which book? I really enjoyed the character of Krennic in Catalyst.

      • September 3, 2017 at 5:29 pm

        Thrawn & Krennic have yet to cross paths in any medium.

  • September 2, 2017 at 9:56 pm

    The trailer honestly doesn’t give much by way of new information. It’s definitely great to still be relatively spoiler-free, but I would have appreciated that little bit of a hint about a certain missing player.

    It does go deep into ‘Rogue One’ territory, though, with the Krennic and Project Stardust name-drops, Two-Tubes and Saw’s split from the main Rebellion.

    Kanan and Hera finally addressing their relationship is definitely another plus!

    not impressed the trailer for season 3 showed some kind of uncertanity with Thrawns speach and arrival, but here every second a stormtrooper gets killed, I don’t see any thrill from it, sorry it will be the season 2 and 1 over again, what they touch that will be destroyed and the Empire gets defeated over and over, it seems the last episodes of season 3 were unique and they remain so. Only the Rogue One shows how this war really looks. :(((

      i agree to a point but we are getting to the low point pre rogue one when the rebellion is on the brink. i’m hopeful we will see the might of the empire in full display this season.

      I look at this gif, and all I see is Colbert’s reaction when they hand his show over to James Corden

  • September 3, 2017 at 12:58 am

    oh my gentle jesus. rebels always seems to have the best trailers and this might be the best of them all. besides wrapping up all the show storylines i’m especially looking forward to them giving some much needed context and background to rogue one. i have a feeling after i watch this season i will like it more. super stoked. 🙂

    • September 3, 2017 at 2:24 am

      What’s “needed” context do you seek?

      • September 3, 2017 at 2:34 am

        pretty much everything that happened in between catalyst and rogue one. specifically, saw and his split with mon mothma and the death star project post galen and his fam going into hiding.

        • September 3, 2017 at 2:36 am

          Sometimes (imo) not knowing is best, I like to make it up on my mind.. personally I dislike like when they explain/show everythig

          • September 3, 2017 at 5:22 am

            i agree to a point, but thats not what’s in the cards. backstory galore is in our future.

  • September 3, 2017 at 2:05 am

    When will Boba Fett make an appearance?

    • September 3, 2017 at 2:22 am

      Hopefully never

      • September 3, 2017 at 11:19 pm

        I knew someone was gonna say something like this.

    • September 3, 2017 at 2:51 am

      Wasn’t being rude to you, just he’s not needed in this show, adding him makes the SW universe seem small like everyone knows each other, not adding him and using different bounty hunters enlarges the universe.. to make SW great you need to expand and add new story’s and people.

  • September 3, 2017 at 2:29 am

    Mhm..this should hold me off. It was dryer than the Sahara man.

  • September 3, 2017 at 5:21 am

    The trailer looks good. I have no gripes. I just hope that this final season is better. Because, to be honest; I find Rebels a mixed bag. Third season to me was not very good. Even rewatching it back to back(my cousin got the blu-ray and I watched it with him), I just found it to be such a downgrade. Heck, second season I argue is a lot better from a story perspective. And do not get me started on Thrawn. Fortunately, Zahn’s book restored my faith in how he was handled in this NC.

    But really, I hope that the crew of the Ghost have a good ending. Because, four seasons is a good run for a show. It shouldn’t over stay its welcome, like TCW did. Though, TCW I find is a lot better of a series. Still, I do appreciate merging this closer to RO/ ANH’s time period.

    Which begs the question: will Ezra and Kanan die? Because, really if they do not, there better be a good reason why they wouldn’t show up in ANH. Heck, if Kanan or Ezra were around, I could see the Rebel alliance pulling them from the front lines to train Luke. But I digress.

    Looks decent overall.

    • September 3, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      I liked Clone Wars but it was a bloated show. There were a lot of 3 or 4 episode arcs I could have done without.

      • September 3, 2017 at 5:43 pm

        Agreed. I argue that the show started off slow, but got better around midway, but really declined in terms of quality. Still, I will give praise to Filoni as that show was really ambitious with the storylines it told. The Mortis arc being the prime example of this. And yeah; some of them I argue were miss. But I usually praise those creators willing to take a risk and go against the grain as opposed to the safe route, even if the execution isn’t right.

        It is why Rebels to me is so disappointing because it took the safe route. Yeah, I like the characters, but the plotlines I find are super thin. TCW’s characters may have vaired by the storylines it told during the Clone Wars were varied and actually enhanced a lot of the mythos.

        Now, for granted; I prefer the microseries overall, but really TCW I find was a better constructed show overall.

        • September 3, 2017 at 6:57 pm

          I think having Maul fight Obi-Wan in a two-move fight was a huge risk. I was part of the chorus of “DON’T SHOW OBI-WAN IN REBELS!” but he proved me wrong. That episode is one of my favorites.

          • September 3, 2017 at 10:10 pm

            That was a good episode. Though, it sucks because it robbed the Obi-wan movie a good antagonist. Regardless, Rebels third season is one where I’d more often skip around and pick key episodes. Most of the filler just sucked. Even Second season which had too much filler and a thin plotline I found was more engaging.

            This was such a letdown as it was plot elements that went nowhere. Ezra going dark side? Just gone. The holocrom? Gone as well. Bendu and his connection? He is killed off. And what was worse was the finale. No sense of stakes or consequences. Season one had more structure due to its low episode count.

            These more episode seasons with overarching story arcs are not well-executed. TCW, I have plenty of issues, but it was smart to keep the storylines self-contained within a few episodes.

    • September 3, 2017 at 3:48 pm

      Yeah its good, but I can’t get over excited for it anymore. The elephant in the room is certainly the issue of Kanan and Ezra. My theory is at least one (Kanan), will perish and the other walk away from the path of the Jedi.

    • September 5, 2017 at 5:55 pm

      “there better be a good reason why they wouldn’t show up in ANH.”

      It’s a big galaxy? Could be anywhere.

  • September 3, 2017 at 12:17 pm

    Still waiting for that official YT-2400 Lego set…

  • September 3, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    Will we see Krennic, K2, and Cassian? Here’s hoping!

  • September 3, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    I’m not too keen on the snarky title of this vid, but the direction of this series warrants much of the constructive criticism here, and it’s fairly well laid out by a thoughtful fan who obviously wanted to enjoy the show.

    I, for one, can relate, so I’m posting it for anyone who feels the same…

    • September 3, 2017 at 4:22 pm

      Someone needs to write a rebuttal titled, “Why this review sucks.”

        • September 3, 2017 at 10:14 pm

          Yup. I am not a fan of this Youtuber in general, but having watched his video, one cannot deny the critiques he has put forth. Really, Rebels’ tonal shifts can be downright annoying. I get that it is a Disney XD show, but really if that was the case, stick with the goofier tone.

          TCW was a lot more serious. A lot of it was due to its airtime at night, but also the network, CN which was geared towards more older children.

          So really, while it is easy to dismiss criticism that is aligned against one’s views(confirmation bias, I argue), I find that foolish. It pays to understand where others come from. I know plenty of people who like TFA and raise valid points. I do not agree. But this bandwagoning/mob mentality is counterproductive and really just produces echo-chambers. And echo-chambers I argue are the worst things anyone can be in.

          • September 3, 2017 at 10:35 pm

            Kanan and Hera are the only two Ghost crew members I actually find likable. Ezra: whiney, Sabine: cheesy, Zeb: grumpy.

          • September 4, 2017 at 2:39 am

            And that is fine. Kanan is a wonderful character. I loved him since New Dawn and the Kanan comic is fantastic, minus its second volume which was okay. Hera also as well. Ezra is hit or miss. I liked his character arc at the start of the season, but really I just found it squandered. Like, why couldn’t he have turned dark side? There was actually a good justification for doing so.

            Sabine, I liked her concept, but she was dull until the last season which added a lot to her. And Zeb is cool, but too comedic relief based for my tastes.

          • September 3, 2017 at 11:08 pm

            Glad you’re on the same page. I think this video would garner slightly more respect if he called it “Tonal Whiplash”, but regardless, the problems are all in the writing. I have no idea how The Clone Wars managed to make me care about a dozen guys who were genetically the same, and all voiced by the same actor, but it did. Each clone had their own individual arc, and I was emotionally invested, *despite* the fact that I have no love for the prequel era, they *still* hooked me — that’s stellar writing right there. I can’t say that I feel the same towards any characters on this follow-up series (outside of Ahsoka’s limited screen-time).

            The Star Wars fans I know in real life (the kind still passionate enough to join me on opening night for the films) have all given up on Rebels, for the same reasons highlighted in this vid. Then I come to this forum, and the echo-chamber is mind-boggling to me.

          • September 4, 2017 at 2:37 am

            Dave very much I found had a sense of ambition when he created TCW. Even though I prefer the microseries, I always respected how he was always willing to push the boundaries. Heck, a lot of the questions he raised, like Ahsoka not seeing all Separatists as bad guys was exactly what I had wanted to see in the PT: the consequences and the actual war unfold.

            As for the Clones; a lot of that was just really strong writing. Domino Squad’s arc is fantastic and very much I found myself liking these side characters. It is easy to focus on the important, grand characters. But I love whenever any franchise chooses to focus on the little guy. The reason being that WE all are that person. Yeah, I want to be a Jedi, but realistically I’d probably be an ordinary person.

            So reliability for me is so high. As for your point, yeah; I have plenty of friends who do not really like Rebels that much. Rebels has some decent ideas, but either they weasel out of them or just fail to deliver.

            Does anyone really remember the two Inquistors from second season? As characters, they were really one note I find. Overall, Rebels to me is very overrated. It was a nice attempt of fleshing out the Dark times era, but I find a lot of its potential was squandered. Maybe, if it wasn’t on Disney, I could care to watch. But really, I just find is dull.

          • September 4, 2017 at 5:18 am

            To be fair, TCW did start out cheesy and had a major tonal shift from season 4 on.

          • September 4, 2017 at 4:03 pm

            Totally. But I found that TCW stuck to that changed tone and didn’t flip flop. Perhaps, because I believe the time slot was shifted towards Friday / Saturday nights so it could get away with more darker themes. Do not quote me on that.

      • September 4, 2017 at 1:50 pm

        It does raise some very valid points, especially the tonal whiplash, but it is definitely not helped by that title and some arguments put forward.

  • September 3, 2017 at 5:57 pm

    The designs and settings appear to show a perfect merging of Rebels into Rogue One and Episode 4. Boom.
    Awesome to see the tease showing how Saw Gerrera will become “too extreme” and break with the Rebel Alliance.
    Still nervous about what they’re going to do with Thrawn!

    • September 5, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      I’m not convinced.

      • September 5, 2017 at 8:06 pm

        The clues are right in front of our faces. It’s not just him wearing the mask in the trailer, it’s the characters curious absence from the Rogue One visual dictionary, along with the theme of the trailer about picking a side and fighting the Empire not on their terms. Saw seems to play a heavy role in this. My guess is that after Kanan gets killed by the Empire Ezra wants to be more radical and join Saw. You even see him get away in a ship to escape in Rogue One so he is clearly still alive and out there.

  • September 5, 2017 at 7:57 am

    Looks like with the exception to the Cosmonaut Variety Hour, who made a video about why Rebel stinks, pretty much everyone here including myself is excited for Season 4.
