We are fast approaching the final season of Star Wars Rebels, and while many remain disappointed that there are only fifteen episodes left from the Ghost crew, there is so much to look forward to, and questions that need answering.
We have the liberation of Mandalore, the return of Saw Gerrara, X-Wings, U-Wings, the attack on Lothal… and that’s just to name a few.
So while we are coming to the end of Rebels, at least this time they are able to finish the journeys of these characters and wrap up all loose ends. Dave Filoni said that this was by no means an end to Star Wars animation, but simply closing the book on another chapter. Given the untimely end of the show’s predecessor, The Clone Wars, at least this time they can finish on their terms.
Knowing that many of the characters do not feature (at least at the forefront) in the original trilogy, the fates of the Ghost crew remain as uncertain as they began. Add in a number of intriguing rumours and reveals, and there are a lot of questions to be answered before Rebels ends.
