On October 14th Star Wars Rebels returns with the further adventures of The Ghost crew and their fight against the Galactic Empire.
There are a three things this everyday Fangirl is looking forward to in the upcoming episodes.
1) The addition of Captain Rex and his fellow surviving clones
The next few episodes introduces the crew of The Ghost to Captain Rex and his fellow surviving clones, Wolffe and Gregor.
Ezra is too young to remember the Clones Wars. He does not really understand the clone part of that war and would not experience any hesitation to trust these new characters, especially since Ahsoka does. Ezra will just be happy to find more allies to help with the fight against The Empire.
Kanan is already not happy with getting involved with a new war and being part of the greater rebellion organization as he told Hera in the season 2 premiere. In addition, he experienced the Clone Wars and Order 66 as chronicled in the Kanan Comic series. Therefore, Kanan will be very reluctant to trust or want the suport of Captain Rex and his fellow clones because of his past experiences.
2) The new Inquisitors
I am really looking forward to the new the introduction of the new Inquisitors because we may learn more about their origins and who is training them. I am especially excited by the introduction of the female Inquisitor, The Seventh Sister, voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar, who fangirls may know as Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Based on the previews I have seen so far, this new Inquisitor reminds me of Assaj Ventress. Assaj is still one of my favorites from Star Wars The Clone Wars and this reminder is making me ask questions like:
Does this mean that she is a surviving Night Sister taken by Palpatine sometime before they were destroyed?
Who did she learn her moves from?
Does she know Ventress and if so will we see her appearance in Star Wars Rebels?
No matter what the answer is to these questions, the previews show that The Seventh Sister is definitely going to cause trouble for The Ghost crew, especially Ezra and Kanan.
Lastly, I am really looking forward to the episodes that include Hondo. I know that the story line will include adventure, excitement and of course humor. I am sure, like Ahsoka did, Ezra will learn what makes Hondo tick and adjust his strategies during the adventure accordingly.
So are you looking foward to Star Wars Rebels returning? If so, then what are you looking forward to? Are they the same or different?
