After a riveting and somewhat saddening last episode, which saw Sabine's time with the Ghost crew come to a close, we move back to the Empire and away from the Mandalorians.
Now, we head into the heart of the Imperial force trying to capture the Lothal Rebels (the Ghost crew and stars of Star Wars Rebels) as led by Grand Admiral Thrawn. The episode is called "Through Imperial Eyes," so expect much of it to be centered around those characters. In addition to Agent Kallus, currently working as a Fulcrum agent for the Rebellion, we see Thrawn again, and meet Wullf Yularen, now referred to as Col. Yularen of the ISB once more. Tom Kane is even back to voice Yularen, a nice throwback to Star Wars: The Clone Wars where he voiced a much younger version of the character.
The official description of the episode reads:
Thrawn Closes In On Fulcrum In The Next Episode of “Star Wars Rebels”
Fearing that the identity of a rebel spy will soon be discovered by the Empire, the rebels launch a plan to rescue the spy before he is caught.
Catch Grand Admiral Thrawn in an all-new episode of “Star Wars Rebels” this SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
In this clip, we also hear Thrawn, at the end of his training regimen, say codeword "Rook" - though Legends fans likely want that to be spelled "Rukh," the name of Thrawn's personal bodyguard in his original appearances in the non-canon novels.
Star Wars Rebels airs Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD, and 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.
