I’ve always loved Star Wars. Though there were times in my life where it was less important to me – and times when I rebelled against it – it’s always, in some way, been a part of me. Even when I tired of the original trilogy and the men who would question me endlessly on it if I wore a Star Wars t-shirt out of the house, I still read the Expanded Universe books that I bought in battered boxes from old car boot sales. When the shine of the prequels wore off for me as a pre-teen, I still journeyed with Jaina, Jacen, and the rest of the Young Jedi Knights.

As I grew older, my fandom became something I cherished. I refused to let others define my love for Star Wars and began to embrace every moment of the epic, sprawling galaxy that I adored so much.

I loved The Force Awakens, seeing joy in the inclusive, expansive, and beautiful new world that J.J. Abrams created. The film reignited my adoration for the series and drove me to seek out anything I could find that would let me stay in the galaxy far, far away for even a little while longer. That’s how I stumbled across the majesty of Claudia Gray, a fantastic writer who cut her teeth creating fanfic before moving onto bestselling young adult novels. She was soon approached by Disney to launch what would soon become a sort of modern Expanded Universe. Her first Star Wars book, Lost Stars, is a heartbreaking exploration of friendship, first love, and loyalty set to the backdrop of the original trilogy. After consuming the entire book in 24 hours, I was hooked.

star wars rebels series finale trailer

This post contains major spoilers for the series finale of Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars Rebels came to an end with a surprisingly hopeful finale. It was a gorgeous epilogue that let us know just what our beloved Spectres were up to in the years following the end of the show. Set just after the Battle of Endor, the last few minutes of the series highlighted where each member of the Rebels cast ended up, even teasing the possibility of a Sabine Wren and Ahsoka spin-off.

But it was one of the smaller details that sparked much crying, yelling, and speculation amongst fans. See, the ending of Rebels introduced us to Hera and Kanan’s son. And that’s where things get interesting.

Star Wars Rebels A World Between Worlds

As Star Wars Rebels moves closer to its final episode, the series has been pushing the boundaries of what we expect from an animated Star Wars show. Just like The Clone Wars before it, Rebels has become a vital part of series canon, expanding the landscape of the films, books, and comics that make up the main Star Wars universe. From the re-introduction of former expanded universe villain Admiral Thrawn to vital new characters like Kanan, Hera, and Ezra, Rebels has always been at the forefront of Disney’s plans for the Star Wars galaxy.

But with Monday’s penultimate episode, Rebels introduced something that changes a core part of the mythos of Star Wars. It will have a huge impact on the final three episodes of the show and the greater Star Wars universe…maybe even the films.

So here’s everything you need to know. Natural, major spoilers lurk ahead.

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, the company has been trying to reinvent the vast, fluid, and beloved Star Wars Expanded Universe. For those of us who loved the EU, it was an upsetting decision, but one that made a whole lot of business sense. Disney is a corporation who likes to control the narrative, so it’s unsurprising that they want to stay on top of the new Star Wars canon.

It’s been six years and Disney has actually done a pretty fantastic job of diversifying and solidifying the greater world of Star Wars outside of the movies, with a huge selection of novels and comics that expand the universe of the new films. It can be a little overwhelming working out where to start, but these fantastic Marvel and IDW comics offer the best possible entry point for the updated Star Wars galaxy.
