Star Wars Rebels Trailer Shows Off The Darker Side Of Season Two

LucasFilm released a new trailer for the second season of Star Wars Rebels today via the Star Wars Tumblr page, SlashFilm reported. The nearly three minutes of footage show off tons of confrontations between familiar characters, new villains, and old faces.

Things seemed hopeful for the band of rebels in last season, but a new pair of Jedi-hunting Inquisitors, including the mysterious Seventh Sister (voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar), is set to wreak havoc on the crew alongside Darth Vader. An unnamed bounty hunter also appears to track down Sabine, and it’s evident that they have a bit of history together.

Family looks like it will once again play into this season’s dramatics, as Ezra continues his search for his lost parents, while Darth Vader burns his way through the galaxy in search of his former apprentice Ahsoka Tano. The crew isn’t without some chance of survival, though, as we also see former clone troopers like Captain Rex aiding the rebels in battle from atop their AT-TE. Check out the full trailer below.

Star Wars Rebels season two begins airing on October 14 on Disney XD.
