Disney and Lucasfilm have decided to renew the popular Star Wars Rebels cartoon for a fourth season that will be aired later this year.

As announced on the official Star Wars website, Star Wars Rebels season 4 will debut on Disney XD this Fall.

Production is underway for the fourth season already and will still be set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

If you cannot wait for more details on the fourth season, you don't have to wait too long for more information.

Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida is happening this April and it will give us more news about the upcoming fourth season.

It will be interesting to see how the events of Rebels unfolds since the series is still considered to be part of the official Star Wars canon.

Fans want to know what will happen to the likes of Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren and others. After all, we don't hear from them in the actual movies...

Another interesting aspect of Star Wars Rebels is its reintroduction of famous Star Wars villains. Currently in the third season, Darth Maul has made an appearance and is seeking Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Again, this is a villain that has been popular but his fate it still left to be explained.

Hopefully the fourth season will tell us what really happened to Darth Maul after the events of A New Hope as we never hear from him ever again in the actual movies.

It's possible Star Wars Rebels might be ending in the near future and Disney/Lucasfilm could commission a new series that is set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

That timeline is yet to be explored fully as we still don't know the origins of Snoke and how Kylo Ren became bad.
