As The Clone Wars comes to an end and the focus of the characters moves on to the era of Star Wars Rebels, thoughts inevitably turn to the finale of that show and the characters we left there, Ahsoka and Sabine Wren. Talking to Deadline, Dave Filoni touched on that, hinting that yes, there may be more stories to tell with those characters.
DEADLINE: With Clone Wars over, do you think we’ll see another season of Rebels?
DAVE FILONI: No. Not really. I was really happy with how that series turned out, and I feel like we got to tell a complete story there. It was one of the things that really drove me to thinking, well, it would be great to have a complete feeling like that for Clone Wars, so now to have both is really great. I think that there’s always potential for stories that involve the characters from Rebels, which is maybe a better way to put it. They’ve all earned their place in the galaxy, so to speak, so I’m sure there’s some more of them to do.
DEADLINE: I ask not only because of Ahsoka Tano’s ending here with Clone Wars, but there are many who’d like to see the arc of Sabine and the black-bladed lightsaber. Do you think we’ll ever see another continuation of that storyline?
FILONI: Oh, I think it’s possible. I mean, it’s definitely something that I left hanging at the end and part of that reason is just it’s always nice in my mind when there’s another story. I like things in a series, even when I read or watch them, and there’s always a bit of sadness when something does come to an end, so potential is a great thing. I love that people are thinking about these stories in the same way that I wondered about many stories. As a kid I wondered what happened to Luke after Return of the Jedi and all my heroes. I think it’s a natural part of enjoying this, and I think there’s always potential for further stories. Certainly, I will say it’s something I’ve given a decent amount of thought to, so you never know when or if it will actually ever take shape.
