An exciting new trailer has been released for the mid-season premiere of Star Wars Rebels, and it's loaded with all kinds of goodies! It offers us out first look at an older Alec Guinness-era version of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it teases a rematch between him and Darth Maul! How freakin' awesome is that?! We also get our first look at Mon Mothma in the series.
Up until this point, every version of Obi-Wan that we've seen in the animated Star Wars series has been the young Ewan McGregor-era version. This is the first time we have see him as an older man in these shows, and it's super cool.
I just can't wait to see his rematch with Darth Maul! That's going to be quite a momentous event. I don't expect to see it happen until the season finale, though.
Star Wars Rebels returns this Saturday with a two-part episode featuring Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera.
