It’s pretty clear when Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes place, but even though we knew what was going to happen in the latter, no one could have ever expected it to play out the way it did. So how Rebels will eventually tie together with Rogue One is unclear. One thing is for sure, we will be seeing Rogue One cameos in Rebels just as we saw Rebels cameos in Rogue One.
Until that time happens, we’ll just have to wait for season 3’s story to conclude. With the way things ended during the winter finale, fans are anxious to see what happens to Ezra and the rest of the Ghost crew. And Disney has released a new trailer giving us a look at what is to come. Check it out below.
There will be some seriously exciting episodes that will air during the remainder of the season. Not only will we see Saw Gerrera for the first time in Rebels, but Mon Mothma makes her first appearance as well. Another arc seems to address Sabine return home, complete with her wielding a dark saber. Of course, she will have to prove herself to her fellow Mandalorian, and who better to train her than Kanan.
In the end, though, the one thing that everyone really wants to see is that tease of a rematch between Obi-wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. As some of you remember, their last encounter saw Kenobi cutting Darth Maul in half at the waist. Since we see Kenobi sitting in front of a fire on what looks like a familiar desert planet, we have to assume that Maul probably loses – seeing as Maul isn’t seen in A New Hope. Of course, there is the possibility that Maul loses gracefully and retires from the Sith order. But who wants that?
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Hope. Revenge. Rebellion. See what’s to come in the rest of Star Wars Rebels Season Three in this thrilling mid-season trailer.

After finding a missing rebel team member, the Ghost crew discovers another surprise on Geonosis, and they work to conceal it from Imperial forces. Forest Whitaker, who stars as Rebel freedom fighter Saw Gerrera in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” provides the voice of the character as he makes his debut on “Star Wars Rebels” this SATURDAY, JANUARY 7 (8:30-9:30 p.m. EST) on Disney XD.
