With the Expanded Universe now no longer in existence, Disney and Lucasfilm are forging ahead with filling in the gaps between the various big screen adventures set in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. Star Wars Rebels is set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and the first season revealed more about the formation of the Rebellion and Empire.

In season two of Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels, past lives will be revealed and the destiny of our heroes will be changed forever. The transformative new season resumes with Imperial oppression on Lothal growing stronger and the rebels seeking out new allies and additional resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost enlists some old friends: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars.

As the rebels grow in number, so do their enemies. New Inquisitors are dispatched by Darth Vader and sent to crush any threat of rebellion. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels – the bond of our rebel crew will be put to the test like never before. Star Wars Rebels is set to return to Disney XD on October 14th.
