Today at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, Star Wars Rebels seems to be the buzz word as the series takes over the Digital Ballroom with a few panels, leading up the World Premiere of the Season 2 Premiere. But for fans not at the event, you can get your first look whats to come this season, look no further than the new trailer that LucasFilm has just released.
If you aren’t caught up on the first season of Star Wars Rebels, some of what follows will be spoilers, as the trailer sets up the conflict that last season ends on in a big way, while introducing us to some familiar faces from Star Wars The Clone Wars.
Check out the new trailer:
it’s safe to say that Star Wars Rebels season 2 is upping the tension and drama this season, and playing tightly into the canon, but bringing the likes of Darth Vader into the mix, and what it means for Kanan and Ezra, as well as the rest of the Ghost crew. I’m also happy to see Ashoka’s storyline being tied up, and I’m curious to see how her and Vader’s storylines will come together now, because it’s something fans have been wanting answers to for a long while. Also, it’s great to see fan favorite Captain Rex making a return to the series, and taking a potshot at the Stormtroopers while he’s at it. This trailer really has everything, and is a huge bit of nostalgia mixed with some new things as well, and it’s really making my anticpation for Season 2 that much crazier.
If you haven’t been watching Star Wars Rebels, now is the time to jump on it. The series has really left its mark on the canon of the series, and is creating some new and interesting stories and threads that really flesh out the universe, as well as what Vader was doing before A New Hope. Season 2 of the series looks to really be building on just how intense and scary the Empire can be, and what lengths they’d go to for domination, all at the hands of Vader, and I can’t wait to see how Ezra, Kanan, and the Ghost crew deal with them.
Star Wars Rebels will premiere later this year on Disney XD.
