It’s that time again! And we’ve got some juicy Star Wars Rumors and Spoilers this week.
This week, we have one shockingly ginormous spoiler about the fate of a character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and two fun spoilers about Star Wars Rebels Season 3!!!!
As always, please STOP READING NOW if you would like to avoid any potential Star Wars rumors and/or spoilers!!!!
Okay, here we go…
1.) Donnie Yen’s character, Chirrut Imwe, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story… dies.
… Freaking yikes, am I right?!
As reported by CosmicBookNews, actor Wen Jiang spoiled this news big time.
As some of you may know, Chirrut Imwe is a member of the Rebels.
And, at the Star Wars Celebration, Jiang just flat out gestures to Yen and says that his character dies.
Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) was moderating the panel discussion and quickly tried to shut things down. But the damage had already been done.
Knowing that his character dies doesn’t really tell us much other than that. We know the Rebels are going to battle. So, unfortunately, it does make sense that some of them won’t make it. But it’s still a HUGE spoiler!

2.) Grand Admiral Thrawn will definitely be in Star Wars Rebels’ Season 3!
As reported by IGN, the Star Wars Rebels Season 3 trailer was released last weekend and fans learned that Grand Admiral Thrawn would be making his way to the series.
For those of you who don’t know, in the Star Wars universe, Thrawn is a Grand Admiral in the Imperial Navy. And he’s suuuuuper intense. Like, seriously.
I’m seriously excited to see how his addition to Rebels is going to challenge our favorite characters.
Check out his reveal in the trailer below!
3.) Battle Droids are coming to Star Wars Rebels Season 3!
I love Battle Droids. I know that’s incredibly nerdy but I couldn’t care less.
They are so fun! And! As reported by IGN, Star Wars Rebels co-creator and executive producer Dave Filoni has said that the Battle Droids in Rebels are going to be “way better than the ones [he] had in Clone Wars.”
At the Star Wars Celebration in London, Filoni had this to say about the new Battle Droids:
“There’s several funny things about the Battle Droids. They first is they’re actually way better than the ones I had in Clone Wars.”
He also added that these Battle Droids in Rebels are going to be much more traditional looking. “…We decided not to overstylize them differently,” Filoni said. “So we were a lot more true to their head shape, even more like Doug Chiang’s original concept Battle Droids. So I love the way they look.”
