In a Facebook note, Dave Filoni and the crew thank fans for the reaction to the Rebels finale and the return of Ahsoka.
Nothing could have prepared us for the outpouring of emotion and cheers when Ahsoka Tano appeared. As someone who has watched over her character from the beginning, I was overwhelmed by the reaction. Little Soka has come a long way, and I think many fans have grown up right alongside her. I look forward to your continuing journey with her, as she attempts to guide our Rebel heroes in these dark and dangerous times.
Season 2 of Rebels will feature a character voiced by none other than Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar. She does have an ‘in:’ her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., voices Kanan, but… She’s Buffy. Isn’t that enough?
Now begin the debates as to who she’s voicing… (Probably not Buffy.)
Fulcrum was revealed in last night’s ‘Fire Across the Galaxy,’ and this is the last post where I’m going to dance around that. In ‘Rebels Recon’ they talk about the returning characters, and give us a peek at Rebels S2.
Lucasfilm has confirmed that Darth Vader himself will be showing up for the Rebels season finale, as previously rumored. Of course, the bigger – and more shocking, if it plays out – part of said rumor is still under lock and key, officially.
You get a brief glimpse of him here:
Vader has already appeared on the show once, in holograph form, an extra scene added when ‘Spark of Rebellion’ aired on ABC.
The Rebels season finale, ‘Fire Across the Galaxy,’ will debut Monday, March 2, on Disney XD.
Rebels heads into the finale with ‘Rebel Resolve,’ and Andi chats with Taylor Gray, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Vanessa Marshall about their characters, and Dave Filoni reveals the likely fate of the courier droid. And Pablo answers two questions, including Hera’s exact relation to Cham Syndulla of The Clone Wars.
The next episode of Rebels, ‘Rebel Resolve,’ will air on Disney XD on February 23. It’s the first part of the season finale, which concludes with ‘Fire Across the Galaxy’ on March 2… And it won’t be showing up on XD app first, so everyone has to tune in live.
