Dave Filoni has been very open as of late while he reflects on Star Wars Rebels now that the series has concluded and Season 4, the final season, is out on Blu-Ray/DVD.
The fate of Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren, something that is constantly being discussed by the fans, comes up most often and Dave Filoni has had to respond to questions with answers he doesn't really have...yet.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Filoni opened up a bit about what it would be like to let someone else takeover the stories of characters that are very important to him personally...
"That would be hard. That would be, to be honest. That'd be really hard for me to do at this point, just because I've been a part of it for so long. Since, especially, Ahsoka's beginning. I can't imagine not being involved in some way with what would happen to her. Or Sabine, for that matter."
When we last saw the pair, the former Jedi Tano had arrived on Lothal several years later in a T-6 Shuttle to pick up Sabine and together, go in search of Ezra Bridger. Bridger of course was whisked away to the Unknown Regions by Purrgil's along with Grand Admiral Thrawn, near the end of the final episode Family Reunion - and Farewell.
For his part, Filoni thinks about it often and is very aware it's something the fans desperately want to see in some form, whether it be on TV or otherwise. He's smart enough to realize you don't enter into something like this lightly however and should someone else take the reins on concluding their story, he's always available to lend a hand and would likely insist on it...
"I feel a responsibility to know and start to figure out what that story is because the fans seem really interested in it, as I'm interested in it. Whether it actually ever happens, I don't know yet, but I still think about it anyway. I think of all kinds stories, and some of them happen and find their way into a release, and some don't.
I think it's important to know the story. Especially 'cause there are other creatives and other people to come along that will ask questions to me, the same as you. 'Wow. Well, what happened there?' And so I like to know, and I'm kind of protective of certain character groups. So I feel responsible to know, 'Well, here's what happened.'"
So what does everyone think? Will we ever see the journey of these two powerful Star Wars characters come to fruition? Or is their path destined for fan fiction? With "Disneyflix" starting next year, it seems almost anything will be possible for Star Wars here on out. Here's hoping.
Till next time...MTFBWY.
