Sadly, we only got one episode after a week off, and now we have another extra week to wait for more Star Wars Rebels. The series has another week off this Saturday, with the next new episode coming November 19 - after all that crazy election stuff is over. The next episode again focuses on the adventures of the youngest members of the Rebels crew, Ezra and Sabine. Of course, as the stills from the episode show, they're not the only ones front-and-center...
Yup, Thrawn is back. Grand Admiral Thrawn, the blue-skinned and brilliant strategist, returns in two Saturdays, and judging by his first couple of appearances, the young Rebels are in trouble.
But wait, there's more! Yes, you heard and saw right in this clip: that's a YT-2400 Freighter! Yeah, it looks a little like the Millennium Falcon, but that's not why we're so excited. A YT-2400 Freighter called the "Outrider" was the preferred vehicle of a dashing rogue smuggler called Dash Rendar! Okay, so it's flown by a bunch of kids here, but it's still exciting to see another one of these ships - a product of the Legends (aka EU) stories flying into canon. The official description follows, with the screenshots in the gallery below. See ya back on November 19, 2016!
"Iron Squadron: Ezra and Sabine team up to tame a rogue young hotshot pilot and his crew who recklessly risk their lives in a fight to defend their home world from Imperial occupation.
Admiral Thrawn returns on the next all-new episode of “Star Wars Rebels” that airs next SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD."
Star Wars Rebels follows the adventures of Hera (Vanessa Marshall), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Zeb (Steve Blum), and the Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Ezra (Taylor Gray), a small crew that's finding their way in the nascent Rebel Alliance a few years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Executive produced by Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni, the in-canon series helps to connect the worlds of the films and the previous animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, with guest appearances so far by characters like Lando Calrissian, Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Leia Organa, Wedge Antilles, and more.
