THE REBELS FACE GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN WHEN "STAR WARS REBELS" SEASON 3 PREMIERES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

The critically-acclaimed animated series "Star Wars Rebels" returns SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (8:30 p.m., ET) and introduces new characters Grand Admiral Thrawn and Bendu during the season three one-hour premiere event, "Steps into Shadow" on Disney XD.   
  
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire.  However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before.  In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
