With only two episodes remaining on Star Wars Rebels, everyone has been wondering whats next? Will we have an actual live-action series or another animated series in the Star Wars universe?
Now what we know is there is a show coming. Is it STAR WARS: REBELLION? We know that Lucasfilm has copyrighted that name and toys and whatnot are being made under that name. If so what will it be about? Are we staying in the Skywalker universe or getting away from it.
Rebels creator recently said that the wait will finally be over and an announcement will be happening soon.
While speaking with Animation Magazine, Filoni talked about his experience on Clone Wars and Rebels and if an announcement is coming:
“George always treated our animation on Clone Wars the same way he treated film, it’s all part of his story. At times there’s a tendency to treat animation as an ‘other’ or as something for kids, and that’s not been my experience at Lucasfilm. We are telling stories and we happen to use the medium of animation to tell them.
“So I think that’s what the future holds. We have a lot of different ways to convey stories and we choose the best mediums and we are showing no sign of slowing, so the end of one thing always means the beginning of another, and soon people will learn what that other is.”
I’m going to be honest with you, the first half of this season was a bit slow and I wasn’t a fan, especially after that amazing second season. But since then these past 4 episodes have been incredible. I really can’t wait to see how the final two episodes play out.
What do you think the new series will be about? Let us know below!
