The first six episodes of the final season of Star Wars Rebels have been titled and dated, and if the information presented here is indicative of a trend, then Season 4 could wrap up before Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters.
Jedi-Bibliothek has uncovered the episode names for the first six episodes of the last season of Star Wars Rebels, and it’s been revealed that the show will have a pair of two-part episodes at the start instead of a single double-length episode:
- Episodes 1 & 2: “Heroes of Mandalore: Part 1 & 2” (October 16, 2017)
- Episodes 3 & 4: “In the Name of the Rebellion: Part 1 & 2” (October 23, 2017)
- Episode 5: “The Occupation” (October 30, 2017)
- Episode 6: “Flight of the Defender” (October 30, 2017)
Given that “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender” both air on the same day – and that they don’t appear to be related episodes – it appears as though Lucasfilm’s release pattern for the remainder of the show’s sixteen episodes will be to air two episodes every Monday. Provided that the schedule continues and there are no hiatuses, this would mean that the show could wrap up before Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters.
Star Wars Rebels will conclude with its fourth and final season starting October 16. The series features the voice cast of Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Warwick Davis as Rukh.
8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May 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!
