The last time we saw fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars Rebels, she was crossing lightsabers with her old master Anakin Skywalker, now known as Darth Vader, in order to buy Ezra, Kanan and the others enough time to escape from Malachor in the Season 2 Finale. The episode left her fate open-ended, but most fans felt that we would probably be seeing her again, whether in person or worst case scenario, as a force ghost. Her return didn’t occur in Season 3, but Season 4 might be a different story…
At today’s “Animated Origins & Unexpected Fates” panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Star Wars Rebels co-creator (and creator of Ahsoka) Dave Filoni along with Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo were speaking about the character when Filoni revealed that we will be seeing her again in the show’s upcoming fourth season. He did not clarify, however, what state she would be in when we do see her again.
Filoni and Hidalgo also revealed that we will probably be seeing former Clone Troopers Gregor and Wolffe again in Season 4 as well. The troopers from Star Wars: The Clone Wars reappeared in the Season 2 Premiere alongside Captain Rex, who has since become a mainstay onboard the Ghost, but the two didn’t really stick around. It will be great to see them again, though. Filoni and Hidalgo also shared a slide featuring character design images of Rex in Rebel attire similar to the uniforms worn by Rebel soldiers on Endor in Return of the Jedi, which you can check out below (via IGN).
Expect to hear more Star Wars Rebels news as the weekend hits, as the official Rebels panel will take place on Saturday morning. And be sure to check back right here on Heroic Hollywood for all of our Star Wars and Star Wars Rebels coverage from this year’s Star Wars Celebration.
Star Wars Rebels will return for its fourth season this fall on Disney XD.
8 Ways In Which ‘Star Wars’ Can Reach Its Full Potential
The Star Wars Universe is one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time and the high quality of the recent films are not only proving how strong a franchise it is, but also continuing to gain legions of new fans every year. The series is fantastic and Disney’s films have brought it back in favor with both audiences and fans, but like any good franchise there are always ways in which a series can improve and as a huge fan I don’t think the series is at its full potential yet. There have been some minor issues and things that could be done differently that could make the series even greater than it already is and these can be addressed in future Star Wars films and in other mediums as well. With all of this being said it is appropriate to look at some of these issues and see how they can be addressed in a manner that could give everyone what they will want.
