X-Wing Star Wars Rebels Season 4

The final story tie-ins leading to A New Hope are coming together as Star Wars Rebels enters its fourth and final season.

We will finally find out how the rebellion gets its signature ship, the X-Wing.

At the Star Wars Rebels panel in DragonCon, co-executive Henry Gilroy told fans we’ll finally see the ships in action and he address why they hadn’t appeared prior to the upcoming season.

The popular Disney XD animated series followed the misadventures of a band of misfits, who have come together to help organize the biggest threat to the rule of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance.

Ezra (Taylor Gray) is forging his final path to the Force as a Jedi understanding both the Light and the Dark. What we see so far in the trailer is his journey starting to be recognized and ambiguous, similarly as Ahsoka was at the conclusion of The Clone Wars.

We’ll see Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) in strife with current Rebel leadership as he continues to struggle in his path as a blind Jedi. He and Hera’s (Vanessa Marshall) relationship could be approaching the next level. I won’t be surprised given his current path if he makes a noble sacrifice as one way to explain why the Jedi are still so rare.

We’ll see how the Mandalorians will factor in galactic conflict within their civil war with Sabine (Tiya Sircar) leading one side with her darksaber. Not sure how much she’ll be involved this season.

It’s hard not to predict major tragedy to keep the rebel alliance in check since it takes place before A New Hope. I don’t think Disney will create the dark ending similar to Rogue One, because ultimate the animated series is still a children’s show.

Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) is still looking to factor to deal a major blow to the Alliance, which will be enough to ultimately force them to later rely on Luke, Leia and Han to carry them. He’s already sending someone after Hera.

The best ending I can see for the show is if it can parallel the events on the timeline of Rogue One as an epilogue to validate the Easter Egg seen in the film.

What else do you hope to see Star Wars Rebels final season?

Season 4 premieres October 16 on Disney XD.
