Probably bullshit, but let's find out together. Star Wars Rebels sequel information : StarWarsLeaks Release window late 2020 on Disney Plus. Season 1 in post production. Season 2 well underway. The story is set during the height of the short lived New Republic. We get to see the Republic Senate and explore some of the main galaxy post Return of the Jedi and before the sequels. But, I'm told only season 1 details this, and another show will truly delve into the New Republic. Season 1 sets up Ahsoka and Sabine preparing to travel to the Unknown regions to find Ezra Ahsoka gave a valuable relic to the Kaminoans who have set up shop again to after the Empires defeat, to stop and reverse to a certain extent captain Rex's accelerated aging. He joins Sabine and Ahsoka on their quest. Season 1 also follows Ezra and Thrawn who become unlikely allies over time. We are introduced to the Chiss Ascendancy who are in the middle of a war with the Grysk. The Chiss are the main society in the series and Csilla their homeworld acts as a hub and main staging point. Thrawn has a niece who is introduced as a main character. She is a ''Skywalker'', force sensitive Chiss children who are used by the Chiss as navigators through the dangerous hyperspace routes of the Unknown regions. She grows close to Ezra. The Grysk are presented as a major threat and will be a main opposing force throughout the series. They don't really look like their EU counterpart the Vong. Best way to describe them is they look like ancient depictions of the emaciated Buddha on steroids. The Grysk aren't the only threat there are far more sinister entities and phenomena awaiting our protagonists in the Unknown regions. Main mystery surrounds the barrier of the unknown region. A character who my source said will likely become a fan favourite is the last remaining member of the Rakata species, he is a powerful force sensitive warrior who was once a cruel tyrant, when the Rakata empire was at it's height. He acts as a mentor to Ezra, he's a very morally gray character. Source jokingly described him as being a redemption seeking ''Aztec amphibian god-king, with a cool Irish accent.'' A very strange and typical Star Wars cultural combination. The animation style is a blend of TCW and Rebels in influence. In conclusion, they are really delving into the darkness and maturity of the Star Wars universe and the occult mysteries of it's western portion. Resistance should be ending within the next month or so.
