‘Star Wars Rebels’ Clip: Kanan Cedes Rescue Mission Leadership To Ezra

Star Wars Rebels Kanan EzraJedi try to keep their personal feelings from clouding their judgment, but sometimes, that doesn’t work out. In the latest preview of Star Wars Rebels, Kanan Jarrus realizes that his personal romantic feelings for Hera Syndulla might compromise him on a particularly dangerous mission, so he assigns Ezra Bridger control over her rescue.

The new Star Wars Rebels clip, released through ABC News, has Kanan and Ezra discuss the forthcoming rescue operation and why the de facto leader of the Ghost crew can’t lead the plan:

In addition, series creator Dave Filoni commented on the scene, explaining that he sees it as a turning point for Star Wars Rebels in its last few episodes.

“This is a big decision moment. Kanan is smart enough to know that his emotions around her could actually cloud his judgment and what he would choose to do. It is a nice transference moment. There’s always this thing where you have a student, and they’re becoming more and more adept than the master. What a nod from Kanan to say, ‘I trust you with this.’ This is really important to him, this idea that Hera is in peril. You would think that there’s no way that Kanan wouldn’t take up the responsibility of leading this mission.”

It certainly seems as though Kanan might die in these final stretch of episodes, and if so then this scene is an interesting way to show how the rogue Jedi will pass on what he’s learned to his student. We’ll find out what becomes of Kanan and his friends soon enough.

Star Wars Rebels will return on February 19, 2018 and airs on Monday nights. 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, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Warwick Davis as Rukh.

Previous1 of 11

Star Wars Disney LucasfilmStar Wars has been in the news quite a bit lately. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the biggest (and most divisive) film of the year. Solo: A Star Wars Story finally released a trailer that lit up social media. Now, Lucasfilm has announced that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have signed on to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from the already confirmed trilogy from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and the Skywalker Saga.

Little is known about these projects at this point. Will these films follow an original storyline or will they draw from the original expanded universe material (possibly a Knights of the Old Republic adaptation?) yet that does not mean that it is too early to be looking at potential directors. Star Wars, being one of the biggest film franchises in the world, is something that most directors would leap at. Which directors though would best with the creative minds of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss? What visions would enhance their world or even by contrast compliment their style?

These ten directors should be just some of the few that Disney and Lucasfilm should consider for these new Star Wars films from Benioff and Weiss. Hit Next to get started!
