Disney XD has released an exciting midseason trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 3 featuring plenty of awesome new footage.

Not only do we have a first look at Mon Mothma (the character was seen in animated form in Clone Wars, but it’s her first appearance on Star Wars Rebels), but we also have a first sneak peek at old Ben Kenobi on Tatooine (we’ve seen the Ewan McGregor version of the character before, but it’s the first time we get the Alec Guinness one). We also get a tease of the upcoming confrontation between Obi-Wan and Darth Maul. The rematch between the Jedi Knight and the Sith Lord has been a long time coming, so I'm expecting something big. Please be something big.

Forest Whitaker will reprise his Rogue One role of Saw Gerrera in the two-part midseason premiere, titled “Ghost of Geonosis,” and from the trailer we can see Sabine trying to master the power of the Mandalorian Darksaber. That should be fun. The Rogue One Death Troopers are also back, and this time they’re pulling protecting duties on Grand Admiral Thrawn. There’s plenty more to see in the explosive trailer — including some epic space battles — so dig in and let us know what you think.

Created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Carrie Beck, Star Wars Rebels is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg and co-executive-produced by Henry Gilroy. The show will return on Jan. 7 on Disney XD.
