The second half of Season 3 of “Star Wars Rebels” seems to be getting a little ‘Rogue One’ injection. In the newest trailer for the upcoming new episodes of the hugely popular ‘Rebels,’ viewers are getting glimpses at a few of the familiar faces from ‘Rogue One’ and one brief appearance by an aging Jedi by the name of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
That’s right, favorites like Saw Gerrera, Grand Moff Tarkin, Mon Mothma, and even a random Death Trooper are seen in the latest trailer. As if those characters weren’t enough, the promo ends on the reveal of an older Obi-Wan Kenobi pulling out his lightsaber, ready for battle. If you’re an avid “Star Wars” fan and loved ‘Rogue One,’ but you’re not watching ‘Rebels,’ then Disney is hoping these characters will bring you in.
The back half of “Star Wars Rebels” premieres on Disney XD on January 7.
