Star Wars - Hondo Ohnaka

(Welcome to A Different Point of View, a column where we explore the supporting characters of the Star Wars universe and discuss why they deserve more time in the spotlight.)

Earlier this week it was “International Talk Like A Pirate Day,” so, I figured, in honor of the Internet holiday we’d look at the most infamous pirate in Star Wars: Hondo Ohnaka. If you have no idea who that is, don’t worry. He’s a slightly deeper cut than previous entries of this column. Hondo isn’t even on the first page of Google results for “Hondo,” so ignorance of his existence is understandable. But now? Now that ignorance ends. Read More »

Star Wars rebels ending

Most shows don’t introduce brand new characters in the final minutes of their series finale, but Star Wars Rebels did just that. Rebels creator Dave Filoni now reveals the somewhat vague plans for that new character. Also: is there a chance this character ties into the Knights of Ren? Let’s speculate wildly. More on the new Star Wars Rebels character below.

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.

The Star Wars Rebels finale raises just as many questions as it answers. I very much enjoyed this final installment of the Disney XD series, but am surprised that the story seems far from concluded. The ending even appears to feature a cliffhanger that teases a new adventure which could be explored in another Star Wars animated series or feature film. But was that the intention? Find out what showrunner Dave Filoni had to say about the Star Wars Rebels ending.

With “A Fool’s Hope” and the two-part “Family Reunion and Farewell,” Star Wars Rebels has finally come to a close. Though fans were understandably disappointed when executive producer Dave Filoni announced that season 4 would be the last, this decision allowed Filoni and his creative team to end the beloved, game-changing series on their own terms. Indeed, this past season of Star Wars Rebels has pulled out all the stops when it comes to the more mysterious elements of Star Wars lore. But it has also stayed true to the show’s main characters: Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, Kanan Jarrus, Hera Syndulla, and the entirety of the Ghost crew.

The three-episode finale brought back a whole host of familiar faces and sent others into space for some new and enticing adventures. There were Loth-wolves. There were temptations to the Dark Side. And there was a spine-tingling time jump. The Star Wars Rebels series finale may not have been the flashiest episode of the show, but it tied up several themes and storylines in a tight little bow…while giving us hope for a whole new series of adventures.

/Film’s resident Star Wars experts, Allyson Gronowitz and Rosie Knight, sat down to talk about the Rebels finale, its grand reveals, and how the overall series impacts the Star Wars universe and fandom. Naturally, major spoilers follow.

Star Wars rebels finale

The Star Wars Rebels finale airs tonight, but if you were expecting the animated show’s conclusion to tie directly into the ending of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, think again. In a video interview, Rebels creator Dave Filoni offers up the reasoning behind not including the Rogue One Battle of Scarif in the Star Wars Rebels finale.
