The final trailer for the final season of Star Wars: Rebels‘ hammers home the connection between the animated series and the beginning of the Rebellion.

Read Coming Soon’s full description below. I would say more, but I’m still finishing season three and don’t want to spoil things for myself.
In this final season, the Ghost crew joins the growing Rebel Alliance, struggling to unite against the Galactic Empire. However, when a new Imperial threat arises on Lothal, Ezra leads the crew back to his home world to defeat the oppressive forces of the Empire under the command of cunning Grand Admiral Thrawn. Old friends are reunited and new alliances are forged as the series builds to its epic conclusion.
