Fans have enjoyed three incredible seasons of Star Wars Rebels and it's all going to come to an end with Season 4. Disney XD has released a new trailer for the final season and it does a great job of teasing the adventures to come. There's no doubt that fans are going to like what they see in this new promo.
Showrunner Dave Filoni talked about the final season with IGN and how the last Star Wars film, Rogue One, opened up more possibilities for the show that they previously didn't have. He explained:
“Now that Rogue One is out, it opens up a lot of possibilities for us to tell these stories. We can go to Yavin now. We can start to deal with the way things worked out in the film and include ideas that are happening prior to that. The look of the background rebels really shifts to being more of the kind of drab military colors that you see in Rogue One. The Phoenix group of Rebel soldiers are kind of petering out. So they’re redistributed into Mon Mothma’s group on Yavin and Dodonna’s group. You see a restructuring of certain cells, and certain cells get destroyed. And that’s true of the ships as well. So there’s lots of little, neat, detail level things that happen when our characters are heading into season 4 and are absorbed into the kind of pre-Rogue One era, which I thought they did beautifully in the film.”
He went on to say that the final season of the epic animated series will be unlike anything that they've done with the series, below:
"This season 4 is unlike anything we’ve ever done in that, at a certain point, a couple episodes in, it’s more a continuous story arc all the way till the end. More than its ever been in anything we’ve done, including Clone Wars. Each story really fits together. Yes, they are unique and independent but it almost feels like day to day. Because things start to move fast and get exciting, interesting desperate and awesome."
Star Wars Rebels Season 4 will consist of 15 episodes and it premieres on October 16th. I can't wait to see how the series comes to a close!
