Despite a name drop in the recent trailer, don’t expect to see Director Orson Krennic in the upcoming season of Star Wars Rebels. The Disney XD animated series is gearing up for its jam-packed final season with the Ghost Crew finally stepping on a bigger stage, now closely working with the bigger Rebellion squad that we know from the original trilogy.
Ahead of its October premiere, a brand new trailer for Rebels has been released providing a fresh look at the final year of the gang’s adventures. Along with the heroes on various missions – including a major arc on Mandalore – we also got a set up of the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; the Death Star project “Stardust” gets namedropped as the brainchild of Director Krennic. However, that doesn’t mean we’ll get to see Ben Mendelsohn’s character and Rebels‘ main bad, Grand Admiral Thrawn, meet.
