Star Wars Rebels resumes its third season this Saturday, and a new trailer indicates the series has some very big events unfolding in the weeks to come.
Check out the new trailer below, which culminates with the Rebels debut of a certain Jedi/Clone Wars veteran and what looks to be a rematch many Star War fans have longed to see.
Yep, that was Obi-Wan Kenobi facing off with Darth Maul on Tatooine! While James Arnold Taylor (the voice of Obi-Wan on The Clone Wars) is heard as the younger Obi-Wan in the hologram, Stephen Stanton, who also voices Grand Moff Tarkin on Star Wars Rebels, is the older, more Alec Guinness-style Obi-Wan.
The Obi-Wan/Maul showdown wasn’t the only moment of note though, as the trailer also included Mon Mothma (also making her Star Wars Rebels debut), the return of Bail Organa, and what may be our first look at Sabine’s mother. Beyond the aforementioned Rebel leaders (and a glimpse at X-Wing pilots), there were other Rogue One elements included, as we not only saw more of Saw Gerrera (with Forest Whitaker voicing his Rogue One character), but also got a look at black-armored Death Troopers accompanying Grand Admiral Thrawn as his personal guard, just as they do Director Krennic in that recently released Star Wars movie.
