Lucasfilm has finally confirmed a fourth season for Star Wars Rebels, putting rumors of a untimely death of the series to rest.
The official announcement was made on the official site today, although it’s pretty bare bones. There’s no real information about what the next season will bring yet, but we’re likely to find out on April 15th at Celebration as the Saturday there is traditionally Rebels day. It’s likely we’ll at least get a Season four trailer at the convention if not more.
Right now Rebels is set about two years before Rogue One and A New Hope. There have been time jumps between seasons before, so it’s possible we’ll see another one with this season running right into the events of Rogue One. We know at least the Ghost, Hera, and Chopper all survive until the Battle of Scarif.
