We’re all craving Star Wars Rebels news, and with Star Wars Celebration in London just a few weeks away, you can rest assured that we’ll get new content in one form or another. Still, some news is good news, so it’s super exciting to know that season two will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray on August 30, 2016.
The special features include:
- Exclusive to Blu-ray: From Apprentice to Adversary: Vader vs. Ahsoka – Executive producer Dave Filoni reflects on the climactic ending of the season, when Ahsoka Tano finally confronts Darth Vader in a long-awaited, fierce, and epic lightsaber battle.
- DVD (and Blu-ray): (1) Connecting the Galaxy: Rebels Season Two – Uncover hidden references, easter eggs, and connections to the Star Wars universe found throughout the season. (2) Rebels Recon – Blast off with 20 fun, fast-paced episode recons, featuring behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with cast and crew, and more!
Season one was released on September 1, 2015, a few days prior to Force Friday, a massive event that involved the release of a wide range of Star Wars: The Force Awakens products. This year, Force Friday will take place on September 30, 2016, a month after the release of the Star Wars Rebels season two DVD/Blu-ray.
Does the release on August 30 mean that we’ll be getting season three in September? Not necessarily, since season one premiered with regular episodes on October 13, 2014, and season two was on October 14, 2015. Tradition indicates that we’ll probably get season three in October.
Still, keep a close eye on Star Wars Celebration Europe, since Dave Filoni and other special guests will share sneak peeks at what’s to come in season three. Lucky fans attending the event will get to see the first two episodes of the highly anticipated season! And once we get closer to October, fans at New York Comic Con might get to see some Star Wars Rebels content, since the series has had a presence there for the past three years.
In the meantime, cable and satellite subscribers can re-watch season two episodes through the WATCH Disney XD website and mobile app. Sling TV subscribers can watch season two on demand. You can also place pre-orders of the DVD and Blu-ray on Amazon.
