'Star Wars Rebels' season 3 release date, plot news: New clips showcase Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra

(Youtube/Star Wars)Grand Admiral Thrawn will be the main adversary of the Ghost crew in the third season of "Star Wars Rebels."

A lot of "Star Wars Rebels" fans are delighted to have Grand Admiral Thrawn appearing this season and two new clips have been released for the show. The first one is called "Face to Face with Thrawn" and the other one is titled "Ezra and the Sith Holocron."

In the first video, it looks like Exra and Hera find themselves in Ryloth, the home planet of the Twi'leks. Ezra is dressed as a scout trooper and Hera is holding what seems to be an ancient artifact. They are inside what looks to be a palace overtaken by the Imperial occupation, and they have Chopper distract some guards while they try to sneak off. Unfortunately, Hera runs into Grand Admiral Thrawn, and she is mistaken for a servant girl.

She is sent off by an officer but Thrawn decides to have her interrogated in order to know more about the customs of her people. This showcases Thrawn's use of tactics and empathy to further understand the enemy, and with his sleek look and chilling voice, fans are sure to have one memorable villain this season.

The other clip has Ezra contemplating in his room about a mission that the team had previously completed. Ezra is tapping more into the dark side this time around and he pulls out the Sith holocron from underneath one of his helmets.

Oddly enough, the holocron seems to be talking to Ezra in the scene, and it sounds awfully like "Clone Wars" villain Asajj Ventress. The holocron talks about his anger making him stronger and giving him focus.

Knowing what happened to Anakin Skywalker when he tapped in to his anger, fans are sure to be worried if Ezra will be able to keep himself balanced in the Force.

"Star Wars Rebels" season 3 premieres with two episodes on Saturday, Sept. 24.
