The Golden Globe winner also reveals what was most important in creating the acclaimed FX comedy.

"But I firmly believe that each generation needs to have their own piece of Star Wars," he added, explaining how ending the Rebels story at this point allows it to be "the most meaningful it can be."

A 2-minute trailer is now online for the last season, which is to debut in the fall. The show's voice cast includes Taylor Gray, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar and Steven Blum.
