Star Wars Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni just had his birthday, but was nice enough to share fans with a gift – a bit of art that puts an odd theory about Ahsoka Tano to rest.
Ahsoka Tano’s fate was left ambiguous at the end of Rebels Season 2 – while it doesn’t appear that she was killed in action, it is believed that she’s entered a different state of Force consciousness. When the trailer for Season 4 hit, one of the first bits of new footage that was shown was a scene of a Loth-Wolf, a giant predator of the planet Lothal where series protagonist Ezra Bridger was born and raised. The scene in question featured a shot of Ezra’s teacher Kanan Jarrus – who was blinded earlier on in the series – reaching to pet the wolf in an environment that seemed to be a Force temple of some kind. This led to some speculation that, for whatever reason, the Jedi heroine somehow reincarnated as this Loth-Wolf… But Dave Filoni has just confirmed that they’re two separate beings.
It might be my Birthday, but here is a gift, and perhaps a clarification, for you.
May the Force be with you!

So there you have it – Ahsoka Tano didn’t transform into the Loth-Wolf. Now, this doesn’t rule out the possibility that she might be controlling the creature from a distance, but it seems more likely that Ezra – whose talents in the Force involves being able to empathize with beasts – will be reaching out to the creature, as seen by his ability to ride the Loth-Wolf in the Rebels Season 4 trailer. Also worth noting is that the owl shown above (which is called a Convor) has been tied to a different aspect of Ahsoka’s story – her bond with the entity known as the Daughter of Mortis (based on the Convor’s color scheme matching the Daughter).
Star Wars Rebels returns sometime in the Autumn with its fourth and final season.
8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.
Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.
Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
