7 Secrets We Learned About ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Season 2

For the past few days, Star Wars: Celebration has been in full-on “The Force Awakens” mode, but today (April 18) was all about a little TV show called “Star Wars Rebels,” the animated series bridging the gap between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope” — the “Dark Times,” as Obi-Wan would say.

In the morning, fans gathered in the Anaheim Convention Center for a sneak peek at the second season of the animated series. Joining the panel were showrunner Dave Filoni and voice stars Freddie Prinze Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Taylor Gray (Ezra), Steve Blum (Zeb) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine) — plus some very special guests!

Then, in the evening, attendees were treated to an early screening of the “Rebels” premiere, giving us our first look at what’s to come for Kanan, Ezra and the rest of the Ghost Crew. Here’s all the glorious secrets we learned from both the premiere and the new — AWESOME! — Season 2 trailer (above).

WARNING: Some SPOILERS from “Star Wars Rebels” Season 1 follow…

  1. Disney/Lucasfilm

    Whoa… WHOA! That’s right, not only is Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) joining the “Rebels” crew, but so is “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” favorite Captain Rex! In the new “Rebels” teaser, we see a grizzled Rex (voiced again by Dee Bradley Baker!) and a band of other rogue Clones, traveling in a modded Clone Wars tank and joining the Ghost crew on an adventure.

    “I wanna see what this guy’s still got in him,” Baker said at the panel, and rest assured, he added, “We’re going to see it!”

    Filoni also gave a tease of what fans can expect from Rex’s return: “We love Rex… Kanan not so much.”

  2. Disney/Lucasfilm

    We’ve known since the season finale that Ahsoka Tano (voiced again by Ashley Eckstein!) would be teaming up with the Ghost crew, but a question still remains: Will Ahsoka confront Darth Vader? Both she and the one-time Anakin Skywalker were thick as thieves in “The Clone Wars,” but now? Yeah, no.

    While Filoni obviously couldn’t say too much on the topic, he did note, “Ahsoka and Vader is a topic that George [Lucas] and I discussed… Let’s just say it’s part of the story that we have to tell you” — maybe as soon as the premiere!
