Rogue One - Forest Whitaker - Saw Gerrera

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy says that the character of Saw Gerrera, introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars before making the leap to live action in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will probably be further explored in future Star Wars projects. And since he’s one of the most intriguing recent additions to the canon, this is something I hope they do end up exploring.

Star Wars Rebels Rogue One Battle of Scarif

Star Wars Rebels fans may have noticed a few intriguing Easter eggs scattered around Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — and, seeing as the film and the show are set just a few years apart and take place within the same interconnected universe, started wondering if we might get some sort of crossover down the line. Well, Dave Filoni isn’t ruling it out. The Rebels executive producer floated the possibility of revisiting the Battle of Scarif someday, this time from the perspective of the Rebels characters.

Rogue One Character in Star Wars Rebels season 3

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story introduces us to a whole new roster of characters who are key to the rebellion against the Empire. And while we know that those characters don’t have a role in the original trilogy that follows Rogue One‘s storyline, that doesn’t mean we won’t see them pop up elsewhere. As we learned before the weekend, Felicity Jones has a sequel option in her contract (which doesn’t spoil whether she lives or dies in Rogue One with the way Star Wars movies jump back and forth in time), and now we have word of another Rogue One character’s future (or rather past) in the saga.

Thanks to a promotional poster, we know that a certain Rogue One character will be coming to Star Wars Rebels. But in order to talk about who it is, we’ll have to dive into spoiler territory, so you’ll have to get details on this latest addition to the third season of the animated series after the jump.

Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels season 3 interview
The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016  I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.

We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.

And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.
