The Empire’s newest weapon against the rising Rebellion, Thrawn, is the focus of the newest trailer from Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels Season 3…
In a new trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 3 titled, “The Art of War,” the Empire’s newest weapon against the Rebels is in the forefront, as he talks in his steely voice about how he plans to dismantle the fledgling Rebellion, using their own tactics against them.
Grand Admiral Thrawn is well known among die-hard Star Wars fans, and after Star Wars Rebels Season 3, he will become a household name among the casual fans, as well. Check it out:
As you can see from the trailer, Thrawn seems to be using art to track the Rebels, which almost suggests to me that Sabine’s propensity for tagging walls everywhere she goes, might eventually become the team’s ultimate downfall.
There’s also the facial reaction from fan-favorite returning character — Darth Maul. Even he looked shaken at some point during that clip. Knowing that Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader have severed ties with Maul — and he with them — would Thrawn openly attack such a powerful wielder of the Dark Side of the Force?
Then you have Kanan attacking Ezra, at the end of the trailer. What is that green mist that inhabits Kanan? Does Maul draw the Jedi to his former homeworld of Dathomir, where the Night Sisters’ green, Dark Side magic can take hold of them?
As for now, there are way too many questions, and roughly 22 days until the premiere of Star Wars Rebels Season 3, so we’ve got plenty of time to ponder. Are you excited? Let us know in the comments below and on social media.
