Star Wars Rebels has been having an amazing third season so far, and it looks like Dave Filoni and crew are continuing the momentum with the upcoming episode "The Last Battle". This episode will focus on Kanan, Ezra and Rex as they unexpectedly stumble upon, and must face off against an army of Separatists battle Droids left over from the Clone Wars. You can read the official synopsis for the episode below:
"Ezra, Kanan, Zeb and Chopper are captured by a unit of old battle droids determined to fight one last battle to end the Clone War during a salvage mission in an all-new episode of “Star Wars Rebels” that airs this SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD."
We also were treated to a clip from the episode, which features the trio captured by a super tactical droid(and an additional clip can be see in the latest edition of Rebels Recon):
One interesting thing about this clip, and the episode as a whole, is that it includes connections to Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The super tactical droid here appears to be Kalani, who oversaw the separatist occupation of the planet Onderon, seen in season five of The Clone Wars. Saw Gerrera, who is set to appear in Rogue One, also appears in the same episodes of The Clone Wars fighting against the Separatist. The planet Agamar, where this episode of Rebels takes place, is mentioned in The Clone Wars as the location Count Dooku orders Kalani to send the Droid forces following the events on Onderon.
We also got some awesome stills from the episode courtesy of our friends at Coffee With Kenobi. You can check them out below:
