The final fight between the heroes and the Empire will begin in the finale of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4. The last three episodes will air back to back, bringing back a lot of familiar characters as the heroes fight their last against Grand Admiral Thrawn (voiced by Lars Mikkelsen).

The animation series will end where it all began: on the planet Lothal. Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) is determined to save his home world from the clutches of the Empire. He will soon lead an attack with such a determination until he chases his enemies out.

The ageing Clone troopers will return to fight the Empire, and so will Kallus (David Oyelowo), who is returning after a long time. There will also be other characters who with the Rebels considered to be the scum of the galaxy, like the pirate Hondo (voiced by Jim Cummings).

Hondo will be called in specifically by Hera Syndulla (voiced by Vanessa Marshall). The pirate may be a greedy, untrustworthy man, but he has the ability to outrun the Empire and break a blockade. Those skills will be put to good use in the last fight on Lothal. A preview video in “Rebels Recon” (see below) shows Hera talking about how tough the blockade is. Hondo talks about his ability to break through.

Since this is the decisive battle for Thrawn, he will not hold back. The preview video shows him bombarding the planet from space without considering the civilian casualties.

The next three episodes of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 will be the last for the show. Disney has announced the next animation series, “Star Wars Resistance,” which is expected to focus on the fight against the First Order.
