Lucasfilm and Disney XD have released a clip and images from the next episode of Star Wars Rebels, “Trials of the Darksaber,” which premieres on Saturday, January 21 at 8:30 p.m. ET on Disney XD.

In an effort to recruit her people to join the rebels, Sabine reluctantly agrees to learn to wield an ancient Mandalorian weapon, but soon finds the challenge more difficult than expected.

Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, have been strengthening the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg, and co-executive produced by Henry Gilroy.

The returning voice cast for Rebels season three includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, Sam Witwer as Darth Maul and David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus. New to this season are Tom Baker (Doctor Who) as the intriguing Force-wise Bendu and Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards) as the voice of Grand Admiral Thrawn.
