The film ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is a great predecessor to STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE.

By the looks of this mid-season trailer, Disney XD’s STAR WARS REBELS television show is fitting in nicely as a prequel towards the events of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY.

Ezra and the Ghost crew are now fully on board with the rebellion. It appears they must recruit more allies to solidify the rebellion and thwarts the efforts of Grand Admiral Thrawn and the Empire.

Besides the main rebel crew, familiar characters will be back for the rest of the season, including Rex, Obi-wan Kenobi and even the debut of Saw Gerrera (voiced by Forest Whitaker too).

In addition, also check out the new images for the first episodes for the mid-season called, “Ghosts of Geonosis, Parts One and Two.

Here’s the synopsis:

The crew returns to Geonosis in search of a missing rebel team sent to investigate suspicious activity there, and they are surprised by what they find. After finding a missing rebel team member, the Ghost crew discovers another surprise on Geonosis, and they work to conceal it from Imperial forces.

STAR WARS REBELS will premiere on Disney XD on Saturday, January 7 at 8:30-9:30 p.m. EST.

Check out the mid-season trailer below and images for the first episodes.
