I was lucky enough to see the season 4 premier of Star Wars Rebels at Celebration, and it’s a great episode. It sets up an exciting tone for the action and shows a tremendous amount of growth in the characters from when we first met them in season 1. Today, Disney XD sent out a press release with the schedule for the first half of the season, as well as the titles for the first half of the season’s episodes. Now, looking at these titles, you’d have to be willing to make a guess, but it seems to me that after we deal with the problems on Mandalore in the first couple of episodes, the rest of the first season is going to be all about working up to Rogue One’s attack on Scariff. Whether the show will give us the lives of Kanan, Sabine, and the rest of the Ghost’s crew in the final episodes, will be an answer that won’t come until the final episodes begin airing next year. Who knows, there’s a good chance that the last few episodes could be all about the battle on Scariff and the death of our fateful heroes.
Star Wars Rebels returns for its fourth and final season beginning Monday, October 16, on Disney XD. Many episodes will be broadcast back-to-back through November 13, making for an hour of action and adventure courtesy of the Ghost crew. (Even Chopper is excited!)
You can mark your calendars for the following episodes:
Monday, 10/16 – “Heroes of Mandalore” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/23 – “In the Name of the Rebellion” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/30 – “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender”
Monday, 11/6 – “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers”
Monday, 11/13 – “Rebel Assault”
Following a holiday break, Star Wars Rebels will be back in early 2018 for its final run of episodes leading up to the top-secret series finale.
