Star Wars Rebels Season 3: 10 Most Anticipated Moments

What we're looking forward to the most in our next trip to a galaxy far far away...

For something that started off more aimed at children than most of the Star War universe (and yes, we do mean Lando's Puffer Pig), Rebels has grown-up a lot since the end of Season 1.

The first half of Season 3 really stepped things up a gear with the introduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn into the official canon, and a (sometimes) more adult Ezra Bridger who’s perfectly happy to mind control Imperials into killing each other and then themselves. Yikes. And if what has been shown of Season 3's second half is anything to go by, the show will keep up that momentum for the rest of the season.

The upcoming episodes look to be full of highly anticipated moments including the full Rebellion coming together, Thrawn finally choosing to strike, and the appearance of a certain Jedi Master who hasn’t gone by the name of Obi-Wan since oh before you were born. And since Star Wars is moving away from the Clone Wars era, that’s probably going to be true for some Rebels viewers in a few years.

While you mull over just how old that makes you feel, let's take a spoiler-filled dive into the things we can't wait to see when Season 3 returns.
