Zero Hour – Part 1

Star Wars: RebelsGrand Admiral Thrawn arrives on Lothal with word that various Rebel cells are joining forces to attack and destroy the TIE Defender factory on Lothal. Using a bugged mouse droid, Agent Kallus listens in and tries to warn the Rebel fleet that Thrawn is expecting them…only to discover that Thrawn is expecting him as well. Following the direction of Kallus’ transmission, Thrawn brings a fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers to the Rebels’ meeting place, cutting off their escape. Kanan goes to the desert to demand help from the Bendu, while Ezra and Chopper alone must convince Mon Mothma to commit the rest of the Rebel fleet to reinforcing the forces gathered by Hera, Captain Sato, and General Dodonna. Mon Mothma, however, is unwilling to put all of the Rebellion’s assets on the front line, leaving Ezra to seek help elsewhere.
