Star Wars Celebration 2017 and given us much to feast our appetites on that will only make the wait even harder. We’ve gotten a teaser trailer for anticipated Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. We’ve gotten a full length reveal trailer for the next instalment of DICE’s shooter, Star Wars Battlefront II and of course, we were treated to a trailer for the next season of Star Wars Rebels.
However, as executive producer, Dave Filoni, took to the stage, he had a bittersweet announcement to deliver. Star Wars Rebels will end with its upcoming fourth season, beginning in the fall. The news will upset many fans who would love to see more of Rebels past next year, but Tiya Sircar (who voices Sabine Wren) stated that: “We told the story we’ve wanted to tell, and we’ve gotten to end it on our own terms.”
The team clearly don’t want another Clone Wars situation, where they didn’t get to finish the stories they told and as the focus of Star Wars becomes more involved with the new Force Awakens-era, so should its other formats.
Filoni did however add, “this show represents by no means an end in what we’re doing in animation.” You haven’t seen the last of this team.
So while Rebels will be ended with its fourth season, the trailer promises some powerful storylines, surprises and a fitting end to their story. So let’s take a look through the trailer and pick apart what we can expect this Fall.
