Lucasfilm announced today that the third season of the hit animated series Star Wars Rebels will be coming to blu-ray and DVD on August 29th.  The box set includes all twenty two episodes from season three as well as some awesome bonus features.  Both the DVD and blu-ray will feature all episodes of Rebels Recon from Season three as well as featurette looking at ho Rebels connects with Rogue One.  There are also several bonus features that are exclusive to blu-ray, which includes audio commentaries on five episodes.  You can see the complete list of bonus features below,

Bonus Features:
Return To Mandalore Explore where Mandalore fits within the Empire’s regime – and whether Sabine can unite her people against the Imperial forces.

Thrawn: A Legend Reborn

Apprentices to Outcasts: Kenobi And Maul

All DVD Bonus (see below)

A Rebel AllianceDiscover how the formation of the Rebel Alliance in Rebels ties into the Rogue One timeline – and the exciting story possibilities that lie ahead for season 4.

Rebels Recon
Go behind the scenes with the cast and crew in 19 entertaining and information-packed episode recaps!
A clip from one of the above featurettes, featuring executive producer Dave Filoni discussing the character of Mon Mothma (and directing actress Genevieve O'Reilly) was released on The Star Wars Show this week.  You can check that out below,

I have to say, it's really nice to see some proper bonus features on the blu-ray box set for a change.  The season two release was severely lacking in this regard, and season one wasn't much better.  So it's good to see that Lucasfilm and Disney listened to fans.  On top of that, they're delivering something we never even got on The Clone Wars blu-ray releases: audio commentaries!  This is something fans have been asking for since the first season of Clone Wars was released on DVD and blu-ray in 2009!  I, for one, am looking forward to picking up this box set when it's released this August.
