Epic ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Trailer is Jam-Packed With Surprises


And by “Surprises” we mean spoilers. Lots and lots of spoilers.

Seriously, the introduction of Princess Leia is only the tip of the very large iceberg that forms the remainder of the second season of “Star Wars Rebels.” The image above of Ezra Bridger grasping a crossguard lightsaber similar to the one used by Kylo Ren in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is probably the least of the revelations.

So, yes, you’ve been warned. If you don’t want to know a lot about the rest of Season 2, you probably should avoid the trailer below. (Of course, then you’ll be missing out on some amazing footage.)

“Star Wars Rebels” returns Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.

    Was that Darth Maul in the cloak?

  • AmazingSpiderHam

    I have read that they do believe it is Maul

  • Yakushiji Tenzen

    Wow this looks incredible. The series has been fantastic so far.

  • solletaire

    Super cool… I wish Marvel would follow in the footsteps of its sister compony and give us an animated show like this one…

  • jblogo

    This trailer was better than the entire Force Awakens movie! Good lord!

  • Jon Snow

    It’s funny, but I was thinking the exact same thing.

    And I guess at least I’ll have Rebels if Episode VIII is underwhelming too.

  • Daniel Williams

    Holy crap… could this mean… is Ezra, Snoke? O.o

  • demoncat_4

    leia. darth vader and yoda all showing up on rebels the only thing that could top this would be han helping the rebels already.

    They’re playing with you. The face under the cowl is from another instance rather than the one (also in a cloak) who immediately following speaks to Ezra. Tricky tricky cutaway.

  • Brian Langlois

    Are you guys freaking serious with that image? Dave Filoni already warned that this trailer is full of spoilers so I declined to watch it. Then you put an image like that smack on my RSS reader. Bad form, CBR.

  • neodoru

    That’s Snoke.

  • nph53

    as a huge fan of the now defunct clone wars series, that scene where ahsoka showed ezra a clip of anakin in action and talked about him with such reverence got to me. mainly because of believable it was. their friendship in clone wars was everything that the anakin/obi-wan one in the prequels wasn’t. i have a feeling there will be some heavy feels by the end of the season.

  • nph53

    he isn’t old enough.

  • Tony Clements

    Yeah, and show a really young Luke too while they’re bringing everyone in, and why couldn’t Carrie Fisher do the voice of Leia?

    Is it just me, or do some of the character designs look vaguely like McQuarrie’s, besides the Chewbacca-esque warrior? (I forget his name..) Vader’s design in Rebels looks like older concept art for him.

  • Uncle Yetibacca

    This is going to be so epic.

    I thinks the clues lead to think Ezra will have a struggle with the Dark side, which is going to be interesting, also I want to learn more about that Force Order.
    And of course, that third Inquisitor, and the return of Maul. (I think, I really think its Maul)

    PD: Does anyone think or hope that Ezra and Sabine will become a couple? I REALLY want them to.

  • CaRoss

    They are based upon McQuarrie’s designs. The Rebels team decided to go back to those to get inspiration for their character designs.

  • CaRoss

    We always have Guardians of the… you know what, I absolutely agree. It would be really cool to see Marvel give us an animated show like this. Particularly a Fantastic Four or X-men one XD

  • CaRoss

    HOLY CRAP! This trailer… I’m not even… WOW. That’s pretty much all I can say. Star Wars Rebels has been on a role since the second half of the first season, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be stopping anytime soon.

    I’m so excited for the return of the series next week as things are heating up far beyond what I expected. And I’m so excited about that. The Old Master (Maul), the continuing hunt for Yavin IV, Vader and Ahsoka’s building confrontation, Ezra’s continual temptation by the dark side; everything is building up so nicely that I’m honestly more excited to see more Star Wars Rebels than I am for episode VIII at this point (I’m still clamoring at the bit for Rogue One news however XD).
