More on Star Wars

The animated Star Wars TV series Star Wars: Rebels, set in the immediate years before Star Wars: Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, will be back for a fourth season has confirmed.

The show has gone from strength to strength each year, bringing in Darth Vader and Tarkin, the return of Darth Maul, appearances from classic characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and even Princess Leia and making the expanded universe characters like Grand Admiral Thrawn part of the official Star Wars canon.

The fourth season will bring the events of the Star Wars universe even closer Star Wars: Rogue One and we can probably expect more ties in to the movies, like the appearance of Forrest Whittaker's Saw Gerrera.

The third season is currently airing on Disney XD and season four will likely continue later this year...
