The second season of Star Wars Rebels rages on with the next episode, “Legacy.” Disney XD and Lucasfilm have provided PopGeeks with some new photo stills and a clip from the episode, which you can check out below. The new episode features the heroes of Star Wars Rebels returning to Lothal, the home planet of Ezra Bridger. In addition, Ezra will learn more about his MIA parents.
In “Legacy,” Ezra receives a vision of his parents through the Force that motivates him to return to Lothal, where much of the first season was set. While the Empire is attacking the Rebel Alliance fleet on Garel, Kanan Jarrus and Ezra go to Lothal to further investigate Ezra’s vision. There, the duo finds a former prisoner who apparently has knowledge regarding Ezra’s parents. Interestingly enough, while the fates of Ezra’s parents is still unknown to Ezra, it seems Hera found out those details in the first season.
The new clip shows a blistering action scene as Kanan, Zeb and Ezra are pinned down by Imperial Stormtroopers and Commander Kallus. However, the emotional Ezra has enough and wields his lightsaber, deflecting blaster shots to disable the Stormtrooper, and then he knocks out Kallus with a Force push. However, the minor victory is quickly interrupted by the arrival of The Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister Inquisitors. Ezra’s emotion and anger might be getting the better of him, hinting that this whole situation could be a trap for the heroes.
