    Cool, I’m glad!

    After episode 18, I need a figure of Ducth Vander, Mon Mothma in animated version and a Y-Wing, of course!

  • 80sRobot

    Seems like they should start heading toward the Battle of Scarif. Perhaps in a fifth and final season.

    In the fourth season, they could start introducing Cassian, K-2SO and the U-Wings. Maybe this explains why Hasbro is reissuing the U-Wing toy as part of the next Wave.

    • 80sRobot

      I’d say nearly everything we saw that was new in Rogue One could start showing up in Rebels: alien races like Moroff, Two Tubes, Bistan and Pao; Imperial Hover Tanks, AT-ACTs, TIE Strikers, Scarif Troopers. They could even work in stories about Chirrut and Baze, and feature Jedha.

      Maybe they could do a story about Bodhi and exactly how his journey went from going AWOL and winding up in the hands of the Partisans.

      • GIBBS v2

        That sounds completely logical to me.

  • Littlegreenwiseguy

    This series still has time to fill before reaching the events in STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE. So this is good news.

    • General Hux

      Who says it has to end before Rogue One?

      • 80sRobot

        True. Perhaps. I think the assumption people have is the show would run into problem co-existing alongside RO/ANH because of Luke. If Ezra and Kanan are still around, shouldn’t they interact with Luke?

        • General Hux

          Who says they aren’t gonna kill off Ezra and Kanan? Yes, I’m being a smart*** but still, I doubt Kanan makes it out of season 3. 🙂

  • General Hux

    Well, good news, I guess.

    • Rivesjunctionite

      That’s the spirit, Huxy!!!!

      • General Hux

        I can be enthusiastic about Rebels every one in awhile!!

    • It means that Thrawn doesnt kill them all in the season 3 finale, so spoilers?

      • General Hux

        Do you really think Rebels of ALL TV shows would kill of the main protagonists? And we know Hera and Chopper make it because of Rogue One.

        • 80sRobot

          Especially since this is supposedly a kids’ show.

          I haven’t kept up with things, but has there been *any* character (particularly a good guy) on Rebels who has been killed off?

          • General Hux

            There was that farmer Bob (that’s not actually his name) character on Lothal who was in a few episodes, Thrawn killed him. And then Ahsoka but we don’t even know if she died thanks to Filoni’s incapability to kill of major characters, Filoni’s great but ue doesn’t know how to kill a main character off.

          • 80sRobot

            Perhaps it’s not Filoni’s fault/weakness? Maybe Lucasfilm/Disney are the ones with cold feet about it.

          • General Hux

            Filoni’s been that way since TCWm though.

        • Not really think. More like hope.

          • General Hux

            In this case, there’s no hope. Lol 🙂

        • Rob Redahl

          Hera and Chopper are in RO??
          I really, really do need to see this film.

          • Firestick User

            No, Herald is only mentioned on the loudspeaker at the Yavin base..”Captain Sendula” she is not shown. As for Chopper, there were R5D4 type droids but I never noticed one flailing its arms around.

          • You see Chopper and the Ghost on Yavin, and you hear Hera (Captain Syndulla) being called over a loudspeaker. The Ghost is also present during the battle of Scarif (assuming Hera and Chopper are on board).

          • General Hux

            Chopper you actually see on Yavin 4, Hera is called over the comm on Yavin so you don’t eversee her on screen. And why haven’t you seen Rogue One yet? It’s amazingly good.

          • Rob Redahl

            Circumstances. Life decided to throw me a couple knuckle-balls these last few months and I’ve had to deal with them, at the expense of indulging in going to the theater.
            But yeah, I’ve heard it’s an amazing movie. Looking forward to seeing it on home video!

          • General Hux

            I see, you’ll love it, Rob!!

          • Littlegreenwiseguy

            The page in the hanger is for “GENERAL SYNDULLA” which could mean her father CHAM is at Yavin 4 as well. It’s hard to say if HERA would be promoted to general by the time of STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE; but it is a possibility. We’ll have to see what unfolds in season four.

          • General Hux

            The Ghost is in the movie too and also when all the fighters report in for the battle of Scarif Van Marshall’s (Hera’s) voice can be heard. It was most likely Hera.

          • RumSleg

            I don’t have a cite, but I believe someone official has confirmed that the page for “General Syndulla” is a reference to Hera, not Cham.

          • General Hux

            Just watched an interview with Dave Filoni, he said it’s Hera. 🙂

          • RumSleg

            Thanks for the backup! That might be what I’m remembering (unless it’s a very recent interview).

          • General Hux

            It was back in January, it was the Rogue One secrets explained video on the Star Wars youtube channel…Great watch!
