Rebels is back Monday with ‘Heroes of Mandalore’

Star Wars Rebels is back Monday, October 16 with the two-parter ‘Heroes of Mandalore.’ The hour-long episode is kicking off the show’s fourth and final season. Here’s the blurb from Lucasfilm:

In this premiere episode, Sabine leads Ezra, Kanan and an army of her fellow Mandalorians back to her homeworld to rescue her father from the clutches of the Empire. When she discovers the Empire has resurrected a devastating weapon, she must decide whether to destroy it or use it herself.

To get you caught up, Lucasfilm has released a short recap of seasons 1-3. All three full seasons are also available on the DisneyNow App, which I believe is accessible to everyone, regardless of whether you have XD or not.

‘Heroes of Mandalore’ will air on Disney XD throughout the day Monday, at 12:30am, 3:00am, 7:30am, 5:30pm and 9pm EDT/PDT.
