Get ready for the 'Star Wars Rebels' season 2 premiere

Last month, Star Wars fans gathered from all over the world to attend Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California. As one of those fans, I can tell you it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Seriously, hands-down, top-10 kind of amazing. One of the reasons I had such a blast was because I had a chance to attend a screening of Star Wars Rebels‘ season-two premiere.

Sitting in that screening, surrounded by fans, I was reduced to childlike hand-clapping glee almost from the beginning. I’ll be honest—it just got better from there.

Tell ya what, how about you watch the trailer for the new season first? Then I can continue.

See what I mean?

SWR Captain Rex

There’s just so much going on in that three minutes. They showed the trailer during the Star Wars Rebels panel in the main arena at SWCA, and the entire room cheered when Rex showed up. And Hondo? People lost it. Not to mention Ahsoka.

But it wasn’t just the return of some of your faves from The Clone Wars that got everyone excited. There was plenty of Star Wars Rebels action that got some love. Hera’s piloting skills. Sabine’s everything skills. Zeb being … Zeb. Chopper’s general awesomeness.

And Kanan and Ezra—there’s so much coming for those two that I don’t even know what to say.

I mean, Kanan and Ezra are going to face off against Vader. That’s insane!

And that’s just the stuff I can talk about. I can’t tell you anything else about the premiere episode because, well, that would be spoiling the fun. But I can tell you this: Imagine the season-one finale episode, then amp that intensity up. That’s where the premiere starts. Right out of the gate, you’re going for a ride.

Rebels returns on June 20 with a special one-hour movie event called Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal. The rest of the episodes air later this fall, so you still have time to get caught up on season one if you haven’t see it. Or you can let Rebel‘s Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) do the heavy lifting in Star Wars Rebels: The Ultimate Guide.

As for me, I’ve got my DVR set, my lightsaber ready, my Hera lekku hat prepared, and my date reserved. I hope you’ll join me.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2

P.S. I know it’s a little late, but I thought it would be fun to have Steve Blum, aka Zeb “Buckethead Smasher” Orrelios, wish you a happy May the Fourth.

Star Wars Rebels season two premieres on Saturday, June 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
