Obi-Wan Kenobi is making his post-Revenge of the Sith animated debut this year as the battle between the Empire and the Rebels thrusts him into the action in a tense mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels.
And who’s that he’s facing off with? Darth Maul of course! It appears fans will get the first rematch between the two since Kenobi beat him at the end of Phantom Menace.
Other highlights from the trailer include:
- Rogue One connections with the appearances of Saw Gerrera, Mon Mothma, and Death Troopers.
- General Admiral Thrawn being scarier than ever – “They revealed their meager defenses, and it’s exactly this moment I’ve been waiting for.”
- Sabine returns to Mandalore with the Dark Saber in tow, which she is learning to use thanks to her training with Kanan.
- Obi-Wan Kenobi’s appearance being modeled after the late Alec Guinness.
- It has to be repeated again – OBI-WAN KENOBI vs DARTH MAUL
Star Wars Rebels returns Saturday with a two-part episode.
