Many fans might turn to films to see some of the most compelling stories that Star Wars has to offer, all while Star Wars Rebels has been telling compelling stories set in the galaxy far, far away for years. With three years worth of episodes to catch up on, the idea of getting up to speed ahead of Monday's premiere of the final season might feel daunting, but you can also catch up on what you've missed in the video above.
The animated series first debuted in 2014 on Disney XD, marking the first animated series after Disney purchased Lucasfilm. Sadly, this purchase resulted in the beloved Star Wars: The Clone Wars
While Disney's purchase resulted in the erasure of many Expanded Universe elements from official canon, Filoni has incorporated many of those elements in Rebels, allowing these characters to live again.
The fourth and final season aims to be the biggest yet for the members of the Ghost crew, potentially resulting in some devastating events for the fan-favorite characters.
Check out the descriptions of the first six episodes of the final season below.
