Lucasfilm has announced a panel for Star Wars Rebels with executive producer Dave Filoni and other special guests to be held at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on Saturday, April 15.
Rebels is known to make waves at Celebration. Two years ago audiences were treated to a screening of the season two premiere which featured the Rebels debut of The Clone Wars fan favorite Ahsoka Tano. Last year, the trailer for the third season was dropped during Celebration which revealed the appearance of Grand Admiral Thrawn in new canon after the popular character was tossed out with the rest of the expanded universe character after Disney acquired the rights to the property.
Fans of the series won’t want to miss this year’s panel as Filoni and guests will bring with them a sneak peek of the recently announced fourth season.
Star Wars Rebels was created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm animated series is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.
The series features the voice cast of Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus, and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn.
‘Star Wars’: Just Who Could Be ‘The Last Jedi’?
Last month, Disney and Lucasfilm officially announced the title for the next “Skywalker Saga” Star Wars film. Episode VIII will be titled The Last Jedi. As soon as the announcement came, fans were both excited, and very interested. That’s a “cool” title, yet at the same time very vague. Even stars of the film, Mark Hamil and Daisy Ridley have been tight-lipped about what that could mean. The only response has been Hamil saying that it has a very “samurai” and “minimalist” vibe to it. Ridley only shared a meme on Facebook related to the announcement of the title.
So what does it mean? One theory is that for the new films, the titles will literally spell out a sentence summarizing the trilogy, which is interesting. The first film The Force Awakens, the next one The Last Jedi, the third…. so it could say that “The Force Awakens The Last Jedi (insert Episode 9 title).”
But we are curious as to who the last Jedi in Episode VIII could be. Of course, there are obvious answers, since the field of Jedi in the new trilogy is so limited. It’s not like the prequel trilogy where there were hundreds if not thousands of Jedi to pick and choose from.
So let’s take a look as see just who the Last Jedi could actually be. Click next to see who our choices are.
