Disney and Lucasfilm announced today the second season of Star Wars Rebels would be coming to home video formats (Blu-Ray and DVD) this August. The rebel crew of the Ghost — now joined by Darth Vader’s former apprentice Ahsoka — continue their journeys in 22 new episodes across the galaxy.
Now’s your chance to see these episodes in crisp 1080p without network bugs or ads for Pickle & Peanut crawling across the screen. Or maybe you’re like me and haven’t had time to sit down and watch this season at all. Whatever the reason, Star Wars Rebels makes a great gift any day of the year. It’s better than a Chia Pet anyway.
The third season of the show will premiere on Disney XD this fall. It’s rumored to be the last, but hopefully that isn’t true.
BURBANK, California, June 17, 2016 – Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Two delivers all 22 action-packed episodes of the hit CG animated series’ second season, plus exclusive, never-before-seen bonus material on DVD and even more exclusive footage on Blu-ray! Available August 30, this thrilling continuation of the Star Wars Rebels saga depicts the continued efforts of the crew of the starship Ghost to defeat the evil Empire.
Amid growing Imperial oppression on Lothal, the rebels are forced to seek out new allies throughout the galaxy, and additional resources to sustain their fight against the Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost bands together with a secret rebel cell and ex-soldiers from the Clone Wars to join a fledgling alliance determined to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.
As Ezra continues his journey to become a Jedi under Kanan’s guidance, the threat of the dark side looms large over the fate of the growing rebellion. Darth Vader himself will dispatch new Inquisitors to snuff any spark of resistance, setting the stage for a climactic showdown in which past lives will be revealed, terrible truths will be discovered, and the lives of our heroes will be changed forever.
Star Wars Rebels was 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 also executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.
