As you recall Season Three continues the saga as Ezra leads a mission to rescue Hondo Ohnaka from an imperial prison, displaying Force skills that he’s learned from the Sith Holocron in the process. Hondo’s intel regards a squadron of Y-Wings due to be destroyed at an Imperial shipyard that the Rebels set out to appropriate, with Ezra being given command of the mission. Kanan, meanwhile, is struggling with his blindness when he discovers Ezra’s use of the Holocron and confiscates it, before being summoned out into the Atollon wilds by a mysterious call that proves to be from the Bendu, (Tom Baker) an ancient Force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith. Meanwhile, Governor Pryce decides that the growing rebel threat requires a greater response and requisitions the Seventh Fleet, which is revealed to be under the leadership of the recently promoted Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).
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. Ezra and Sabine must take on new roles and challenges as the Rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire. and the events that will lead right up to the moment that the Ghost crew is set on their collision course with destiny as the action brings them closer to Rogue One and the original Star Wars trilogy.
