After four long months of waiting after a "summer treat" back in June, the second season of STAR WARS REBELS finally kicks-off on Disney XD with the premiere of "The Lost Commanders" (October 14, 2015 - 9:30pm ET). In the Season Premiere, Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano sends the Rebels on a mission that brings them face-to-face with ex-clone troopers Captain Rex, Wolffe and Gregor. Thing is, once Kanan learns that they were once Elite members of the 501st back in The Clone Wars, his levels of trust don't rise very high. The folks at Disney have sent over some new clips, along with a gallery of photos (see them all on my Facebook page). Check out a preview below!

In "Star Wars Rebels" Season Two, past lives will be revealed and the destiny of our heroes will be changed forever. The transformative new season resumes with Imperial oppression on Lothal growing stronger and the rebels seeking out new allies and additional resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost enlists some old friends: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars. As the rebels grow in number, so do their enemies. New Inquisitors are dispatched by Darth Vader and sent to crush any threat of rebellion. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels – the bond of our rebel crew will be put to the test like never before

"Star Wars Rebels" is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg, and co-executive produced by Henry Gilroy. The talented voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe and David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus. Sarah Michelle Gellar also joins the cast this season as The Seventh Sister.
