After last week’s fantastic episode, Star Wars Rebels is on break for about a month. The show has confirmed to be officially on hiatus until February 18th before the second part of last week’s episode airs.
The current story arc is focused on the Mandalorians, and entitled “Legacy of Mandalore.” While no reason was given for the hiatus, as it was only three weeks ago the show came back from break, the second part is likely delayed due to being particularly good. Advertisers and season renewals usually look to February episodes; and should Disney feel confident in the next episode, it would make sense for them to delay until February. Yet whatever the reason, fans will have to wait to get their Rebels fix.
Star Wars Rebels airs Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD, and follows the adventures of Hera (Vanessa Marshall), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Zeb (Steve Blum), and the Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Ezra (Taylor Gray), a small crew that’s finding their way in the nascent Rebel Alliance a few years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The in-canon series helps to connect the worlds of the films and the previous animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
