“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” showrunner Dave Filoni recently dished out a bunch of new information about where fans might see the “Star Wars” franchise speed off to next.
In an interview with Deadline, Filoni revealed whether there’d be a fifth season of “Star Wars: Rebels,” the animated TV series about a group of ragtag rebellion members, and when we might expect to see Ahsoka Tano again.
Here’s a breakdown of his comments to Deadline.
Will there be a “Rebels” season 5? (“Rebels” ended on a serious cliffhanger, which saw the show’s main character, Ezra, disappear)
No. Not really. I was really happy with how that series turned out, and I feel like we got to tell a complete story there. It was one of the things that really drove me to thinking, well, it would be great to have a complete feeling like that for ‘Clone Wars,’ so now to have both is really great. I think that there’s always potential for stories that involve the characters from ‘Rebels,’ which is maybe a better way to put it. They’ve all earned their place in the galaxy, so to speak, so I’m sure there’s some more of them to do.
Will Ahsoka Tano — the main character in “Clone Wars,” who appears in “Rebels” and will reportedly appear in “The Mandalorian” — be featured in her own TV show?
I couldn’t speak to anything at this point. I have a lot of ideas and I’m really fortunate that I’ve had the opportunity now to work in both animation and live action, so just getting that exposure is interesting. First for me there’s a story and then I have to decide what’s the best medium, and I think there are certain avenues open to me at this point. Right now I’m really enjoying the collaboration I have with Jon Favreau on ‘Mandalorian.’ We’re having a great time making that show, and you know, we’ll see. But first, before I decide where it’s going to go, I need to decide on a story I want to tell, and invest my time in, because it’s a lot. I mean, there’s a lot riding on everything ‘Star Wars,’ especially for me personally, being here so long, I want to make sure I get it right. I’m learning, you know.
