Things go dark for Ezra and Commander Sato in the next brand new episode of Star Wars Rebels. Along with his crew, Ezra and Sato are captured by a new Imperial ship. As a result, Kanan and Rex have no choice but to go undercover as stormtroopers in an attempt to free the imprisoned rebels.
In the latest preview, watch as the Jedi and ex-clone trooper don their stormtrooper disguises and encounter a few complications along the way.
Up until this point, we haven’t seen much of Rex. He joined the rebel cause and works closely with the Ghost crew, incorporating himself into Ezra’s training and offering much-needed information about blockade-busting ships. I’ve even joked around saying that Rex is Specter 7(567), but we haven’t seen him on the ground and leading a mission. Turns out, he’s going to be leading this stealth mission with Kanan and that’s going to make for a lot of fun and laughs, especially given what we’ve seen already.
At New York Comic Con 2015, fans were shown an exclusive clip from this episode and the room boomed with applause and laughter. In the clip, Ezra used his growing Jedi skills to escape and stunned two stormtroopers in the process. Two stormtroopers, huh? I wonder who they could be…
“Stealth Strike” airs on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, at 9:30PM EST on Disney XD.
