A New “Rebels” Behind-The-Scenes Featurette Brings Back The Clones
On October 14, the second season of Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney XD and it looks like some familiar faces from Clone Wars are going to resurface. The StarWars YouTube channel recently posted a behind-the-scenes featurette delving into the Clones as characters, their origins, how they’ll relate to Rebels moving forward and a trio of interesting clones which includes Rex, a fan favorite.
During the first season finale of Rebels, Ahsoka Tano, another Clone Wars character resurfaced and that was the beginning of what would eventually become the return of Rex. The featurette is beautifully produced and my favorite part is when crowd at this year’s Star Wars Celebration was shown a trailer during the Rebels panel. When Rex made an appearance, they went full geek and freaked out.
