The Lothal Insurgency was an event that took place around 5 BBY, in which a group of rebels carried out an insurgency against the Galactic Empire on the Outer Rim planet Lothal and neighboring Star Systems. The rebels operated aboard the starship Ghost and carried out a number of attacks against Imperial forces. The rebels were led by Kanan Jarrus, a Jedi Padawan who had evaded the Great Jedi Purge and Order 66; and Hera Syndulla, a Twi'lek resistance fighter. Other rebels included Padawan Ezra Bridger, Lasat Honor Guardsman Garazeb Orrelios, Mandalorian explosives expert Sabine Wren, and the Astromech Droid C1-10P ("Chopper"). The insurgency drew the attention of Imperial leaders and other rebels alike, and the rebels became part of a wider rebellion that included Senator Bail Prestor Organa and former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano.
