When season 3 of “Star Wars Rebels” returns, it will tell more of the story of Ahsoka as well as the challenges of Kanan.
Back in the episode finale of season 2, the Sith temple collapsed. Although Kanan was blinded by Darth Maul, he was able to escape with Ezra. However, Ahsoka and Darth Maul were left behind, leaving fans uncertain of their fate.
In an interview earlier this month with IGN, executive producer and co-creator Dave Filoni revealed that although the story is not aimed to center its focus on Ahsoka and even Darth Vader, there are still more stories yet to be revealed from her, especially since season 2 was left off with a cliffhanger.
He first indicated that he does not usually do an open ending but in rare instances, Ahsoka’s story is one of the occasions that he is okay with it. He said, “You wondered what happened to her before, but you knew she walked away. Now she kind of leaves in a state of conflict.”
Filoni continued, “I would just say that there are probably and I’ll give you this as we go back ways there are probably more stories to tell with Ahsoka Tano, but I would not believe that that would happen necessarily on Star Wars Rebels.”
As for Kanan, Filoni revealed that they took on that angle since it will challenge and make him grow as a person. Earlier in the story, Kanan hid, but eventually embraced his fate to be a Jedi student. However, the step forward has brought in some trials as he lost sight. The story is expected to continue in season 3 of the American animated series.
Filoni explained, “Kanan is going to face this big challenge and what it means for him as a crew of the Ghost that he’s suffered this injury, and can he overcome it.
No exact date has been pinned down for the premiere of the third season, but it is expected to come around fall.
