    "Captain" Solo wasn't commissioned in the Rebel Fleet prior to ROTJ, so they could have commissioned him into the Army as a general without disrupting anything, since they weren't technically Navy. Same with Calrissian. Field promotions. No issue with that.

    Captain Syndulla was established as a Rebel naval fleet officer. The rank structure dictates that her promotion to flag officer would make her an Admiral, not a General.
    It makes no sense that she'd resign her Naval commission and accept an Army commission.
    First, this was from an interview with the team at LF.
    Second, I have no idea how the Rebellion ranks go.
    Third, Relax about the little things and just enjoy the stories we do get.

    What is interesting is if they do continue with the story of Ahsoka and Sabine looking for Ezra, then the next time we see Ezra might be as an adult.

    Am I the only one bothered by the fact that when the space whales come out of hyperspace, they will probably be in the vacuum of space and that's gonna seriously bum out Ezra and Thrawn (who were standing on the bridge of a star destroyer with all the glass smashed out)?

    But then I think about Leia Poppins.....

    Since Ezra is likely communing with the Pergil’s it’s possible he’s guiding them to deliver Thrawn’s SD to a habitable planet and he can use the Force to create an air bubble around him and Thrawn before they make planet fall.

    I took it as the whales are living creatures and they have no problem in the vacuum of space. I figured they generate a pocket of air or whatever around themselves to survive and since they covered the SD, Ezra and Thrawn are inside the bubble. As noted above, too, Ezra is in contact with them to a degree and they know he's there, so they're not likely to abandon them in the space to die.

    They'll change the animation style again and then the hardcore Rebels fans will join us hardcore Clone Wars fans in complaining that it doesn't look good.

    i thought of that right away... figuring ezra was killing himself and thrawn in space once they leave hyperspace...

    BUUUUUUUUUT when gervious destinies the windscreen on his ship and gets sucked out, emergency doors slam over the broken glass...

    we also have seen force field doors, blocking the vacuum of space. so i imagine one of those happened once the ship entered/exited hyperspace

    at least thats what i tell myself to feel better about that lol

    I do wish we could have gotten some more Yavin/Rebel related episodes before the season ended. Would loved to have seen some more of characters and X-Wings from Red, Gold, and Blue Squadron. I also think it would have been cool for Hera and crew to do some sort of mission with Cassian and K-2SO.

    Let me be clear. Just because I did not get that, it does not mean in anyway I am disappointed in the series.

    I liked the newer style better personally. But to each their own.

    Style undoubtedly changed because technology improved. CW had to stick with what they started with. Rebels began 7-8 years later and therefore had more tools/tech at their disposal. Same thing will be true of whatever's next...5-6 years down the road on tech.

    I'm kind of glad it ended. The formula of someone getting captured, then them sneaking onto a Star Destroyer or Base to rescue them was getting pretty boring.

    Overall I liked where the series went and it had some true epic Star Wars type moments, but it you could see they were really starting to struggle with keeping the story going in an interesting fashion and keeping it kid friendly

    I just watched the finale again and I realized why filoni is brilliant. He has now taken two character that I loathe, and turned them into two of the greatest in star wars lore.

    Just like Ashoka, I want to see more of Ezra Bridger.


    At this point, star wars is about Luke, Anakin, Ashoka, Ezra and obiwan. And so.much of that is filoni

    Han who?

    Why Star Wars Rebels Didn't Show The Death Star In Season 4
    BY LAURA HURLEY

    Throughout its four seasons on the air, Star Wars Rebels moved closer and closer toward the timeline of the original Star Wars trilogy, with characters ranging from Lando Calrissian to Princess Leia herself making appearances. Naturally, given that the fourth and final season would take the rebels closer than ever to the beginning of Rogue One and A New Hope, many fans wondered if the Death Star would make an appearance. Director Krennic got a name drop in Season 4, as did his "Stardust" project. Nevertheless, the Death Star never appeared, and showrunner Dave Filoni has revealed why the iconic space station remain off-screen on Rebels, saying this:

    At different times in Rebels in Season 4, there was a moment where even Krennic would appear in the series, where the Death Star appeared in the series, but because our show isn't ultimately about either Krennic or the Death Star, I decided to cut those ideas from visibly showing up. I don't want to confuse the audience. I know a lot of people would know exactly how they fit. It just seemed distracting to talk about something that wasn't the primary focus of the show. It'd be distracting to bring the Death Star into it or this character Krennic. Why would we bring him in if he's not going to play a major role in this series? So I tried to avoid that yet get the idea that Thrawn is competing with how we're going to fight the rebels.

    The original Death Star may be at the center of two Star Wars movies, but Rebelswasn't spending four seasons building up to the reveal of the Death Star. Rebelswas about the band of rebels primarily fighting villains and threats that weren't showcased in the movies. Sure, we got Darth Vader and the Emperor and Tarkin, and Saw Gerrera's appearances teased the fact that the Empire was working on a weapon so devastating and secret that the population of Geonosis was wiped out after constructing portions of it. Still, Rebels wasn't about the Death Star or the biggest names from the movies, and so the Death Star and Krennic remained off-screen until the action of Rogue One.

    Dave Filoni revealed prior to Season 4's premiere that Star Wars Rebels would not end at the Battle of Scarif despite the fact that the Ghost was part of the fighting above the planet, so his explanation in the episode commentary for "Jedi Knight" on the Star Wars Rebels Blu-ray of why the Death Star wasn't on the show isn't all that shocking. Would the end of Rebels have been nearly as impactful as it was if it had simply recreated what franchise fans had already seen on the big screen? While tying in to the next installment in the saga worked for Rogue One (slightly dodgy CGI aside), it may not have worked for the end of a series that ran for four seasons and 75 episodes.

    Hey, at least Rebels didn't end on the reveal that the surviving members of the Ghost crew had decided to take a vacation on Alderaan in the finale! Although that would have answered the question of where these rebels were during the original trilogy, it would have ended the series on an even darker note than it did. Kanan's death and Ezra's disappearance were dark enough.

    Unfortunately, the end of Rebels may be the last time we get to see these characters together. It stands to reason that Hera at least could pop up in the upcoming Star Wars Resistance, perhaps with Jacen in tow, and I know I'd be on board to see what happens next with Sabine and Ahsoka's mission to find Ezra after the events of Return of the Jedi. This could be covered in a book or comic, however. It remains to be seen if and how we'll get some answers. The good news is that the future is looking good for Star Wars TV. On top of Resistance, we have The Clone Wars coming back and a live-action project in the works. We may have lost Rebels, but the end of Rebels wasn't the end of the galaxy far, far away on the small screen.
