Ahsoka Tano May Feature In Season 4 Of Star Wars Rebels
Star Wars Rebels co-creator Dave Filoni reveals that Ahsoka Tano could figure into the story of the show’s fourth season.
The news was broken by Filoni at the “Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates” panel at Star Wars Celebration. Speaking with the Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo, the show creator said that he realized there was still much to tell about Ahsoka’s story and thus has weighed the possibility of having her return in the fourth season of the program.
Previously, the character was assumed to be dead after facing her old mentor, Darth Vader, in battle in the finale of the show’s second season. Indeed, she didn’t show up once during the third season, leading many to conclude that Ahsoka was gone for good.
CBR.com, the source of this story, shares the following information about the show:
“Star Wars Rebels” is set just a few years before “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.” The series follows the starship Ghost as its crew conducts clandestine warfare against the Galactic Empire. Characters from the films and other TV series have featured prominently on the show. Ahsoka, who originally appeared in 2008’s “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” last appeared on the series in the second season’s finale, battling Darth Vader in a collapsing Sith temple. At the end of the fight, only Vader emerged from the ruins.
