The exciting new season of Star Wars Rebels continues on, and there will be an appearance of a classic character in the mythos appearing in the show very soon. This week on Star Wars Rebels, the heroes of the spaceship Ghost will meet one of the unsung heroes of the Star Wars franchise, Wedge Antilles, a supporting character who was featured throughout the original trilogy. The latest episode of the third season, “The Antilles Extraction,” airs laters this week. Also, Disney XD and Lucasfilm released some new stills and a clip for the episode, which you can check out below. Click on the thumbnails in the gallery to see the full-size images.
In this new episode, Sabine goes undercover as an Imperial cadet. There, she meets Wedge Antilles (voiced by Nathan Kress), a reluctant recruit who isn’t on board with what the Empire is up to. In the clip, Sabine speaks to Wedge, and it seems she’s there on a mission to extract an Imperial dissident in Wedge. So, this is essentially the story of how Wedge Antilles joins the Rebel Alliance.
Star Wars Rebels’ latest episode, “The Antilles Extraction,” airs on Saturday, October 8 at 8:30 pm EST on Disney XD.
