As we creep closer to the premiere of Star Wars Rebels, we're learning more and more about each episode. Today we've received a plot description for one of the upcoming episodes, as well as director and producer names. "Rise Of The Old Masters" is officially the 5th produced episode of the series, and the third episode to follow the one hour, TV movie premiere "Spark Of Rebellion". Although not officially confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, the synopsis for the episode comes from the increasingly reliable German fan site Star Wars Union. You can check it out below. Although be warned; possible major SPOILERS are included:
"The rise of the old master (Rise of the Old Masters)
Friday, October 31, 2014, 19:30 clock at Disney XD
Director: Steven G. Lee, Stewart Lee
Producer: Kiri Hart
The rebels know that the old Luminara Unduli in Jedimeisterin Stittgen system [Note. d.Red .: probably Stygeon is meant instead Stittgen] is held. When they get through to her they notice that they have been lured into a trap by the Inquisitor. But by joining forces they can just escape ever so."
This is definitely an exciting and intriguing episode! Bringing a prominent Prequel and Clone Wars character like Luminara into Rebels this early on is very awesome. As I mentioned, this is coming from an unofficial source, so take it with a grain of salt until it's confirmed.
