The fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels finally announced its release date.

Season 4 picks up with the Ghost crew joining the Rebel Alliance to take on the Galactic Empire. The trailer teases a new Imperial threat arising on Lothal, which encourages Ezra to lead the crew back to his home world to take on the forces of Grand Admiral Thrawn as the Empire’s grip on the galaxy continues to grow and strengthen.
In addition to the release date, Disney XD has also dropped a new trailer for the upcoming final season.
The trailer reveals the previously confirmed appearance of X-Wings but also key plots on how the final season will end.
They were now treated to some tension regarding the ways of the Force between Ezra and his now-blind Jedi mentor Kanan, as well as a few callbacks to Rogue One via Saw Guerra, Mon Mothma and Grand Moff Tarkin mentioning Orson Krennic’s ‘Stardust’ project — which alludes to the Death Star.
Star Wars Rebels will premiere on Disney XD and the Disney XD App on Monday, October 16th.
