‘Star Wars Rebels’ Airing Schedule Officially Revealed, Will Conclude In 2018

Star Wars Rebels

We are less than a month away from the premiere of the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels and we now have a look at the airing schedule for the Disney XD animated series.

Rebels returns on Monday, October 16th, and the good news, Star Wars fans, is that on most weeks, we will be treated to not one, but two episodes, a couple of which are two-parters. The bad news is that this season will only feature 15 episodes, rather than the 20+ episodes of seasons past. While I wish we were getting more, especially with this being the last season, there is something to say about trimming the fat of filler episodes. Hopefully, Season 4 will be a lean, mean, incredible story-telling machine.

Here is the first half of the Rebels Season 4 airing schedule, courtesy of StarWars.com:

  • Monday, 10/16 – “Heroes of Mandalore”  Parts 1 & 2
  • Monday, 10/23 – “In the Name of the Rebellion” Parts 1 & 2
  • Monday, 10/30 – “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender”
  • Monday, 11/6 – “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers”
  • Monday, 11/13 – “Rebel Assault”

Following “Rebel Assault,” the ninth episode of the season, on November 13th, the series will take a holiday break before returning in early 2018 for the final six episodes.

As a fan of Rebels since the beginning, I’m sad to see the series go, but I am really excited to see how it all wraps up.

Star Wars Rebels features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan Jarrus, Taylor Gray as Ezra Bridger, Vanessa Marshall as Hera Syndulla, Tiya Sircar as Sabine Wren, Steven Blum as Zeb Orrelios, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus, Dee Bradley Baker as Rex, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Keone Young as Commander Sato, Stephen Stanton as AP-5, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn and Warwick Davis as Ruhk.

Star Wars Rebels returns for its fourth and final season on Monday, October 16th, on Disney XD.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See

Previous1 of 9

Star Wars-SagaMay the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.

Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.

Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
