Star Wars Rebels ends with the return of the Emperor



Star Wars Rebels season four continues on Disney XD from 19th February culminating in a 90-minute series finale with the Emperor this March.

Ian McDiarmid is reprising his iconic role as the Emperor, which he started in Return of the Jedi and continued in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.



Showrunner Dave Filoni is pulling out all the stops and the fate of the Ghost's crew is seemingly bleak.

DisneyLife, the company's excellent streaming service currently only available in the UK and Ireland, was launched on selected Samsung televisions before Christmas. This gave me an opportunity to catch up with exclusive Star War and Marvel content on the Disney Channel. Alas, Star Wars Rebels season four has yet to be made available.

The returning voice cast includes 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 Kallus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn. Warwick Davis joins the cast this season as Rukh, Admiral Thrawn’s deadly assassin.
