Oh my god, has there ever been a better time to be a Star Wars fan?!

Seriously!? We’re just getting over the excitement of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, looking forward to Episode VIII and now Lucasfilm have dropped the trailer for the second half of Rebels Season 3 (which starts back on Saturday with an hour long episode featuring Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera) and it has Saw, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Sabine mastering the Dark Saber, space battles galore and… Obi Wan V Darth Maul?!

We’ve wondered what would happen if these two met again since The Phantom Menace in 1999 and now it look like our 17 year wait (17 years??! Already?) is over.

We reckon this could be the equivalent of Vader Vs Ashoka battle we waited until the season finale for last season, so it could take a while to happen.

All good things, huh?

Sit back and relax… we have three minutes of Star Wars bliss to show you.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
