The Last Battle

Star Wars: RebelsCaptain Rex leads Kanan, Ezra and Chopper to a crashed Separatist ship left over from the Clone Wars, hoping that its stockpile of munitions will be intact. To his amazement, that’s not all that’s intact – there are still functioning Battle Droids guarding the ship, and they believe the war between the Republic and the Separatists is still on. Since he wasn’t alive to experience the horrors of the Clone Wars, Ezra makes a bet with the droid army’s strategist: if the Battle Droids can be beaten, Ezra and his team can take the remaining weapons back to the Rebellion. For Rex, it’s a nightmare: the war that cost him so many of his friends and comrades is about to be fought again. Worse yet, the Empire arrives, and has no qualms about wiping out all of the combatants.
