As Star Wars Rebels‘ fourth and final season approaches, fans of the wonderfully brilliant animated series are having to deal with the fact that the characters we have grown to love over the last four years will no longer be gracing our television screens. While this news may be a tough pill to swallow for some viewers, who it’s really hit hard is the cast of the show.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Tiya Sircar, who voices fan-favorite Mandalorian Sabine Wren on the series, revealed her reaction when she first learned that the Ghost crew’s story would be coming to an end:
“It’s pretty sad, I’m not gonna lie to you. It’s sad to us, as well. I won’t speak for everyone, but, oh my gosh. I was floored when we found out. I wasn’t expecting it. I was just shellshocked, is the word I used.”
Sircar, who is also celebrating her 25th birthday today (don’t forget to wish her a Happy Birthday on Twitter), went on to describe how Executive Producer Dave Filoni helped them comes to grips with the show’s conclusion:
“And then Dave talked us off the ledge and he told us this was always the plan. Of course, Dave doesn’t tell you everything if you don’t need to know. We certainly didn’t need to know until we needed to know. Once he put it in that perspective, that we get to tell the story we want to tell and we get to end on our own terms. Not everyone is afforded that luxury. To get that opportunity is a gift and we will be taking advantage of that.”
Star Wars Rebels will return for its fourth and final season this fall on Disney XD.
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!
