    Thank you Dave Filoni and the entire cast and crew! Rebels is one of the best stories in all of Star Wars!!!!! I really liked Ezra from the beginning and the landscape shots of Lothal in season one, so beautiful. The first time Ezra and Kanan visited the Jedi Temple on Lothal show a dazzling piece of Star Wars cinematography. Kanan's lessons to Ezra were insightful and Hera and Sabine are just fantastic warriors. Star Wars stories truly are ensemble stories and this is one of the best there is. Dave you learned a lot from George, please keep making more Star Wars. Dave is the only reason I still believe in Lucasfilm right now.

    we really need a follow up on this. Thrawn is such a great character and Ezra is the hero Character. Having them just disappear isn't a good ending. There should be another season, just like the Clone Wars, where we see Ezra return, maybe fall in love with Sabine (he always had a crush on her) and mabe even meet Luke

    Doesn't this mean Ezra and Ahsoka could make an appearance in Episode IX?

    This series really matured and became much greater than I initially thought it would ever be. I've really enjoyed the ride and I want to see more of these characters. This series has proven itself as a worthy edition to the star wars canon and mythos. Also, Kanan and Ezra have both broken into my top 5 favorite jedi, which is something I thought I'd never say back in season 1

    Wait, how do I get to ask Rebels questions to them?

    I'm not going to lie, when I first heard about Rebels I wasn't excited at all. Not only was it on Disney XD (ie a "kids" network") but also the characters. I also wasn't terribly impressed by the first few episodes. There weren't bad, just kind of meh and I didn't know where the season was going. Though now I'm gonna miss it.

    Personally in my opinion I like Rebels more than the new sequel trilogy. Rebels is definitely the best thing to come out of the Disney era

  • Joshua Christiansen

    I really enjoyed the whole series. And I think it ended in the best way possible. Kudos to the cast, crew, and Dave Filoni for their hard work in this epic conclusion! Personally I too have some opinions with the final scene as well as my view on Sabine and Ezra's shippping, but for the latter I understand Dave Filoni's reasoning and it make sense to have a strong connection without being in a relationship, however he didn't flat out say that they would not be in one at least not in this series. From my perspective and analysis of season 4 it focused more on their friendship, mutual trust and their ability to work together in tight situations. All leading up to when Ezra convinced Sabine to let himself surrender to Thrawn by distracting Hera and the Lothal rebels to buy the time they needed to complete their plan. Finally in the Epilogue, Sabine had remained on Lothal in Ezra's tower overlooking the capital city, protecting and preparing it for an attack that never happened, cutting her hair short to honor him and touching his face on a portrait in a tender manner before setting out with Ahsoka on a journey to find him (Ezra). I maybe overanalyzing it with speculation but who knows? We will have to wait and see.

    Filoni is the true creative heir apparent to George Lucas. It’s amazing the depth of understanding of Star Wars he has all while boldly adding new layers to it. He’s got such a connective vision that I’d love to see in other aspects aside from animation.

    I’ll admit, the ending made me cry, but I rolled my eyes when I saw that Dave voiced Chopper and said to myself, “I should’ve seen this coming. It’s the same logic that dictates how Blizzard bigwig Chris Metzen got the role of the nature-loving robot Bastion in Overwatch.”

    Good... Mah boi Thrawn's ok... You live another day, Filloni.
    But the big question is: If Thrawn survived, what about Ruhk and Paelleon?

    SINGHDASLAYA Year ago +1

    I wish Dave Filoni wrote the new Star Wars trilogy! He would have thought everything out well and have a concise beginning middle and end and wouldn't have a large mess like what TLJ left us with when it comes to continuing narratives and character depth.

    After seeing Ezra rescuing Ashoka Vader through the porthole from A World Between Worlds and Rogue One I was thinking if Cassian and Jyn can be saved? Can a non force sensitive being be able to enter and the realm and be saved?

    Yeah thrawn is definitely alive. Don’t forget, he is an expansive universe character and in the ending of rebels he looked like he was in a much worse position in Ezra.

    I love you Filoni, I love all the Rebels staff who've worked so hard on this series. I'm from the original Star Wars movie when I was a kid in the 70's. I bought the original Thrawn books when they first came out in the early 90's. I couldn't believe it when the prequels actually came, after such a long void of SW. I loved the very first Clone Wars. Out of all of it, man, Rebels has been so amazing! So sad it's over...but so glad it's been SO superb!! Thank you guys SO much, it's been the best!

    I didn't like Rebels and i i didn't like the "perfect" ending. Its a shame thats nobody frome the "heros" died in Rebels except Kanan.The only reason i watched this serie was because of Thrawn.
    He is my favorite in star wars

    TF2Fan101 Year ago

    While I do admit Filoni has a point regarding Ezra and Sabine's relationship, I'd like to think that the final scene of Sabine looking at Ezra in the painting she made is a bit of a hint at a romantic relationship between the two. Although, I would like it to be developed more naturally. Maybe that's something that could be explored in future Star Wars media.

    I appreciate the fact that they didn't ship Ezra and Sabine. They were like brother and sister by the end of the series, not lovers.

  • Lincoln Ward
    Lincoln Ward Year ago

    This finale was amazing! My only complaint was Jacen's design. He looked 95% human and 0% twi'lek, so it was weird to think about Hera being his mother (and only surviving parent). It makes it feel like humanness is this dominant genetic trait, which honestly has weird thematic implications and kind of lessens Hera's character, in my opinion. Like she was nothing more than a vessel for Kanan. Which is frustrating. Also, Clone Wars already showed us what human-twi'lek hybrids look like: mottled skin color, small lekku, little to no hair. This design just feels not very well thought through.

  • H.A.C Henry A. C.

    I would like a TV show called "The Adventures of Rex" or something along the lines of, to were it follows Rex from when Anakin gives Ashoka the 501st even though she was no longer a Jedi before order 66 and then follow Rex up to Rebels then to fill in the gap in Rebels from when Ezra goes into hyperspace to the battle of Endor. It could also be a book or comic, I mean, it would fill in gaps like how Ashoka and Rex got apart and how Wolffe and Gregor went through order 66, and then how they met. Like if you agree, and if you would like to add something or make a idea based off this put it in the comments of this comment! Thx
