The final season of Star Wars: Rebels won't feature the Battle of Scarif

Star Wars: Rebels

With Star Wars: Rebels coming to a close with its upcoming fourth and final season, there's a question of just when the animated series will tie off its story, especially as we know that the Ghost, the main ship of the series, took part in the Battle of Scarif as featured in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Despite previously teasing that fans may someday see those events play out on Star Wars: Rebels, co-creator Dave Filoni recently told /Film that he'd decided against witnessing the Battle of Scarif from their perspective.

I don’t think that would be right. It would be to hinge this series end on a battle we’ve already seen the outcome of in a feature film. It would be a little bit repetitious, anticlimactic. I think as an initial impulse it sounds great. But the more you think about it, you go hmmmm I don’t know, it would kind of taper your expectations and the tension would be cut quite a bit. I like our ending. And I love that battle. I think it would be neat to see that battle one day from the Ghost’s perspective because we know the Ghost is there, but we don’t know who is in the Ghost. So that’s kind of a good question that needs to be answered.

Although the Battle of Scarif may not take place on Star Wars: Rebels, there are certain elements of ROGUE ONE which will pop up during the final season, including the return of Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) as well as the appearance of U-Wings and Two-Tubes, a mercenary pilot allied with Gerrera. Although the character didn't get much to do in ROGUE ONE, Filoni seemed eager to include the unique looking character on Rebels.

Two-Tubes is an interesting character. And sometimes with Star Wars I find the most interesting visual characters do the least, like Plo Koon. He just sits in a chair and it was fun to get him out of the chair on Clone Wars and doing some stuff. Dave Acrod, the voice actor who played Two Tubes in Rogue One is up at Skywalker [Sound], so it was easy for me to get him for this. And I like the design of the character. So there are little things like that which will crossover, but nothing of real significance necessarily.

The final season of Star Wars: Rebels will debut sometime this fall.
