UPDATE: Lucasfilm’s Tracy Cannobbio has clarified that the multiple Disney XD broadcast times stated below in our original story apply to ALL Season 4 episodes of Star Wars Rebels, not just for the premiere on October 16.


Earlier this month Lucasfilm announced (along with a cool new trailer) that the fourth and final season of the hit animated TV series Star Wars Rebels would be premiering on Disney XD on Monday October 16. With Season 4 now switching to Monday nights, the doldrums associated with Mondays will hopefully be lessened knowing what awaits fans once they get home from school/work.

An article posted on the Disney Press website reveals that Disney XD will be airing the special one-hour premiere of Star Wars Rebels Season 4 at multiple time slots throughout the early morning and evening on October 16, offering fans the chance to see the premiere when it is more convenient to their schedules.

The Emmy-nominated animated series “Star Wars Rebels” returns for its fourth and final season beginning MONDAY, OCTOBER 16 (12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney XD and the Disney XD App. The one-hour episode marks the beginning of the most important mission yet for the Ghost crew as the series draws closer to its grand finale.

In this final season, the Ghost crew joins the growing Rebel Alliance, struggling to unite against the Galactic Empire. However, when a new Imperial threat arises on Lothal, Ezra leads the crew back to his home world to defeat the oppressive forces of the Empire under the command of cunning Grand Admiral Thrawn. Old friends are reunited and new alliances are forged as the series builds to its epic conclusion.

“Star Wars Rebels” is created by Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Academy Award® nominee Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and Emmy nominee Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg, and co-executive produced by Emmy nominee Henry Gilroy.

The returning voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, David Oyelowo as Kallus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn. Warwick Davis joins the cast this season as Rukh, Admiral Thrawn’s deadly assassin.
