To keep tabs on the ever-growing pop culture zeitgeist that is Star Wars, we’ve partnered up with Nerdy Show to bring you State of the Empire. Led by Art Director Cap Blackard, the series speculates on the future of the franchise and looks for news in Alderaan places. To catch up on episodes, click here.
If you’re watching Star Wars Rebels, then chances are good you’re anticipating episodes of this show more than the new films. It’s a key component to establishing the galaxy as we know it when our Original Trilogy heroes come onto the scene in A New Hope, where the few good things to come from the Prequels live on, and a place for pieces of the lost Expanded Universe to live again. It’s also home to an incredible cast of characters whose fates are 100% up in the air once the films take over.
Recently, we learned that Rebels season 4 will end the series — all the tales that showrunner Dave Filoni wants to tell will have been told — and so the year to come is going to be filled with high tension and tremendous consequences. In anticipation, albeit early, we explore the major arcs and moments from the close of season 3 and share everything we know about season 4 — including details on the debut episode which we were shown at Star Wars Celebration.
All safely behind the spoiler-proof blast doors, of course.
