How to Watch the Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Premiere: Steps into Shadow


The Star Wars Rebels Season 3 premiere is finally upon us, and we’re here to guide you to the best place and time to watch it, as well as the episode’s title and synopsis….

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will air on Disney XD, tonight, Saturday, September 24, at 8:30 pm ET. The title of the Season 3 premiere is “Steps into Shadow,” which sounds as if Ezra Bridger will be taking a dangerous step toward the Dark Side of the Force.

Here’s the official Synopsis for Season 3, Episode 1, “Steps into Shadow.”:

"Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire."

The new big-bad for Star Wars Rebels Season 3 is none other than Grand Admiral Thrawn, himself. The blue-skinned Chiss is a Star Wars EU/Legends fan-favorite, and will pose quite the threat to our favorite band of Rebels.
