After fans got to see the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels joining the battle above Scarif during the epic conclusion of director Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One, the idea of Dave Filoni and his crew possibly developing a version of this battle from the viewpoint of the animated series in a future season was brought up by Entertainment Weekly.
We can now put those ideas to rest as Filoni offered up the following comments to Slashfilm when asked this very question at Celebration Orlando 2017:
“I don’t think that would be right. It would be to hinge this series end on a battle we’ve already seen the outcome of in a feature film. It would be a little bit repetitious, anticlimactic. I think as an initial impulse it sounds great. But the more you think about it, you go hmmmm I don’t know, it would kind of taper your expectations and the tension would be cut quite a bit. I like our ending. And I love that battle. I think it would be neat to see that battle one day from the Ghost’s perspective because we know the Ghost is there, but we don’t know who is in the Ghost. So that’s kind of a good question that needs to be answered.”
Filoni was also asked about the prospects of the planet Jedha making an appearance in Rebels as well as his thought process behind including Edrio Two Tubes in the animated series, who was seen briefly in the Season 4 trailer.
