Just when you thought Star Wars Rebels couldn’t get any bigger than to include Vader himself, Season 3 gets expanded in a major way. Not only does the first official trailer confirm Grand Admiral Thrawn as a our new villain, but also a host of Star Wars favorites like Wedge Antilles, the darksaber, what looks to be the Outrider and more!

It wasn’t too long ago that Star Wars Rebels fans eagerly theorized the arrival of Clone Wars vet Ahsoka Tano in Season 1, while the Season 2 finale left it rather vague that she survived her showdown with Darth Vader. Dave Filoni downplayed the notion thereafter, but may since have found a way to return Snips for a role in Star Wars Rebels Season 3.
Anyone who watched the the second season of Star Wars Rebels knew changes were in store for Season 3, and ahead of Star Wars Celebration, already we have our first look. An old friend returns (and can’t help notice Ezra’s major makeover) in the first official clip from the new season!
We’ve already seen one major tie to the extended Star Wars universe resurfacing in this week’s coming Star Wars Rebels Season 2 finale, and a new clip goes a bit back to the future. See that crossguard lightsaber moment teased in earlier trailers, and meet a brand-new Inquisitor in “Twilight of the Apprentice”!
At last, Star Wars Rebels has reached the final outings of its second season, that all those Force-goodies from the midseason trailer have come home to roost. And where the trailer only teased it, see Darth Maul’s full return in a new clip and photos from Rebels’ Season 2 finale!
Life is like a hurricane, with all these reboots and revivals coming at us. It's a duck-blur. But today on Twitter, Disney got everyone's attention by releasing the first promotional image from the new incarnation of Ducktales, which arrives on Disney XD in 2017. The image was first tweeted from the Twitter account of Disney D23, the official Disney fan club, and was then shared by other official Disney sources.
Well-received though Disney’s Marvel-ous Big Hero 6 was back in 2014 (it won the freakin’ Oscar), there hasn’t been very much followup by way of a sequel. Now, Disney XD promises to continue the adventures of Hiro, Baymax and the team in a new 2017 TV series, but what might it mean on the movie end?
One can never have enough LEGO or Star Wars, and it seems Star Wars Rebels may soon have some company on the front of an animated galaxy far, far away. Disney XD and LEGO have joined for a new Star Wars series titled The Freemaker Adventures, following a family of starship builders a long, long time ago.
Darth Vader may continue to menace Star Wars Rebels for as long as continuity dictates, but it stands to reason that the show’s third year might look to a baddie with more creative license. Enter a new rumor, that Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will revive a bit of expanded universe canon cast off by The Force Awakens, returning one of its most famous villains.
Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy have given us a chance to catch up with the adventures of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot before its cinematic inspiration arrives for Volume 2 in 2017, and the TV branch will reach another milestone before the film. Disney XD’s Guardians will return for a second season, and crossover with The Avengers as well.
