Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Premiers on 15 October on Disney XD

For all the fans of Star Wars, good news to all of you because the 3rd Season of critically-acclaimed animated series "Stars Wars Rebels" will returns on this Saturday, 15 October 2016 at 8 a.m. on Disney XD (Astro Channel 617 & 637) and introduces new characters of Grand Admiral Thrawn and Bendu.
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew which was led by a more powerful Ezra, had 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 and in season 3, Ezra and Sabine will take on the new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission i.e. a direct assault on the Empire.
New to the voice cast this season are Tom Baker ("Dr Who") as the intriguing Force-Wise Bendu and Lars Mikkelsen ("House of Cards") as the Star Wars Legends fan-favourite Grand Admiral Thrawn, while the returning voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra and Sam Witwer as Darth Maul.
"Star Wars Rebels" is created by Dave Filoni ("Star Wars: The Clone Wars"), Simon Kinberg ("X-Men" Days of Future Past") and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg and co-executive produced by Henry Gilroy. 
Ezra Bridger with his Team 
5 things that you need to know before watching Star Wars Rebels Season 3. First is the Rebels started with Ezra Bridger, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren, Zeb Orrelios, Chopper the droid and Kanan Jarrus where they met and began their mission against the Galactic Empire on a planet called Lothal, travelling on a ship known as the Ghost as shown on Season 1.

Second is while the Rebels gear up for their biggest battle against the Empire in Season 3, the battle within Ezra rages on as he's torn between the light and dark side of the Force. The last episode of Season 2 showed him opening the Sith holocron that powered the Sith temple which is something that can only be performed by someone who thinks like a Sith.

Third is the Darth Maul is back since he was last seen in Star Wars: Episode 1 i.e. The Phantom Menace with an appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series. This time, his personal agenda to gain power continues in the third season of Star Wars Rebels as he need to make it clear that he is neither with the Rebels not with the Empire.

Fourth is Kanan's new look with a beard and wears a black mask after being blinded by Darth Maul's lightsaber in the season finale of Season 2. The experience has changed his perspective on life and he is made to rely more on the Force as a guide.
And the last thing is, in Season 3, the Imperial army is now led by the cold and analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, who's strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any the Rebels have ever faced before. Meanwhile, Kanan Jarrus will meet a Force-sensitive ancient being on planet Atollon called Bendu, who claims to represent the centre of the Force.
