In this clip from the Star Wars Rebels season three premiere, “Steps Into Shadow,” Ezra uses the Force in a deadly new way. You can almost see the, “Oh, shit!” thought bubble coming out of the poor stormtrooper’s noggin.
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
