This week, Disney XD will broadcast the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, “Wings of the Master.” The brand-new episode will spotlight the pilot and captain of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla. Not only that, the episode will highlight the creation of the B-Wing fighter from Star Wars lore. Disney and Lucasfilm have provided us with new photo stills for the episode, along with a new clip, which you can check out below.
In “Wings of the Master,” Hera goes on a dangerous mission. She heads off to meet an eccentric ship engineer, who has developed a new ship that will be familiar to fans of the Star Wars Universe with the B-Wing. After earning the engineer’s trust, Hera is able to complete a successful test flight in the harsh conditions of the planet’s atmosphere. The new story will showcase Hera’s amazing piloting skills as she attempts to acquire the B-Wing for the Rebel Alliance to turn the tide in a crucial battle against the Empire.
The new clip finally sheds some light on Hera’s backstory. Her inspiration for flying came when the Republic ships arrived to save her world during the Clone Wars. Flying is what she always wanted to do, and she wants to use that ability to help others. The line of “Because even when there are explosions all around me and things are at there worst, I feel like I’m at my best” seems to fit Hera’s personality to a T.
Star Wars Rebels “Wings of the Master” airs on Wednesday, November 11 at 9:30 pm ET/PT on Disney XD.
