New Rebels Teaser Hints at Connection to “The Force Awakens”
Star Wars: Rebels, airing on the Disney XD channel is set to return to for the remainder of it’s second season on January 20th. However, a recently released teaser shows that this series might have some foreboding ties to “The Force Awakens”. The head-scratcher for fans is how that’s possible when “TFA” takes place many decades after this show.
In this exclusive video teasing the final upcoming episodes, there’s one shot in particular that may blow some minds: Ezra Bridger, the young Jedi in training (voiced by Taylor Gray), ignites a crossguard lightsaber similar to the one wielded by Kylo Ren in the new film – only this one is green and seems to be of much sturdier construction.
In addition, Ezra will be pulled to the dark side of the Force by a character simply called “Old Master”. This figure was obviously meant to stir the imaginations of fans, but if you peer deeply into those shadows you can see some markings on the face of “Old Master” that clearly reveal his identity.
