I watch a lot of television. While many of my favorites have returned over the past couple of weeks there’s one show that I have been agonizing over for months and that’s Star Wars Rebels. After teasing us with an incredibly epic season premier in TV “movie” The Siege of Lothal, the series went right back into hiatus mode. We’ve known for a while that the second season was going to be pretty great but The Siege of Lothal gave us our first real look at what was to come.
The trailer from NYCC shows us an extended sneak peek at a second season that is going to be very different from the firs. While the first season managed to keep an air of lightheartedness, this season seems to be taking a darker turn. We’ve got a whole new cast of Inquisitors coming after our rebels. And Darth Vader himself is after them, too. On the plus side, several old favorites from The Clone Wars will be returning. It looks like we’ll be getting some more backstory for Sabine, Ezra, and some of the others, too.
This season is going to be epic. I can’t wait. Watch the trailer above and get hyped! Star Wars Rebels returns on Disney XD tomorrow night at 9:30 PM EST.
