Disney XD Welcomes Star Wars Rebels Season 3

The popular CG sci-fi series Star Wars Rebels goes back for its 3rd season on Saturday, September 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET on Disney XD. Steps into Shadow is its 1-hour premiere special event that will introduce new characters to viewers including Bendu and Grand Admiral Thrawn. A new teaser for the premiere adventure was released by Disney XD.

Steps into Shadow starts with the Ghost crew, which is now controlled by a more powerful Ezra, settled in a secret base on Atollon. The crew wanted to reinforce the revel fleet by getting resources and ensuring that the recruits are ready to rise against the Empire. But the Imperial efforts to eradicate the rebels are currently being headed by Grand Admiral Thrawn, a cold and analytical leader whose tactical and cultural insights make him an exceptional threat. Season 3 features Sabine and Ezra in taking on new challenges and roles as the rebels plan for a direct assault on the Empire.

Created by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Carrie Beck, Star Wars Rebels is produced by Lucasfilm Animation and is executive produced by Kinberg and Filoni and co-produced by Henry Gilroy.

Voice cast includes Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Freddie Prince Jr. (Kanan), Steve Blum (Zeb), Taylor Gray (Ezra), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Gregor, Captain Rex, Commander Wolffe), David Oyelowo (Agent Kallus) and Sam Witwer (Darth Maul). Tom Baker (Doctor Who) will also join the pool of voice talents who will play as the interesting Force-wise Bendu and Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards) as Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Star Wars Rebels season 2 will be released on August 30, on DVD and Blu-ray ahead of the premiere of season 3.
