After this episode Rebels will take a mid-season break during the holiday season, then resume airing to finish out the season sometime in early 2018.
We also recently got a recap of the entire show so far, featuring key points from season 1, 2, and 3, as well as shots teasing the upcoming season 4.
And finally, we’ve been given a special clip from the season 4 premier episode, “Heroes of Mandalor”, which will begin airing on Disney XD within 24 hours of this post.
The new clip features Sabine and her fellow Rebel friends, including Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger and Mandalorian Protector Fen Rau, arriving on the planet of Mandalore and being greeted by Bo-Katan Kryze. Bo has become a fan favorite for her appearences in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, and this will be her first appearance in Rebels, though her addition to this show has long been speculated on and expected by fans.
