While we at FTN have been lucky enough to see the first two episode of Rebels Season 3 at Star Wars Celebration Europe this summer, we are still buzzing with every new piece of footage, images and info we can find.

And, with that in mind, here’s an all-new trailer for the season which really focuses on the threat of arguably Star Wars’ most famous villain – outside of Vader and Maul – Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Thrawn is a mast tactician and an all round bad ass and he’s got his targets set on Kanan and the crew of The Ghost. And we’re far beyond mere excitement at this stage.

The one-hour premiere will introduce newcomers to the series: Grand Admiral Thrawn and the mysterious Bendu. Followers of the animated action-adventure series will also be reunited with the title characters, who sport some hefty redesigns in newly revealed images.

The Season 3 premiere can be seen on Saturday, September 24 at 8:30 pm EDT.

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….
