Dave Filoni Reveals More about the Fate of Ahsoka at Star Wars Celebration Europe
Not long ago in a country far, far away from Star Wars Celebration Europe…
Like many fans around the world, I booted up my computer this morning to watch Star Wars Celebration Europe LIVE via YouTube, anxious to watch “Ahsoka’s Untold Tales” panel with Dave Filoni, Ashley Eckstein, and Pablo Hidalgo as hosted by David W.

As expected, more insight into story arcs featuring Ahsoka were presented during the panel, including a scoundrelous love interest from the depths of Coruscant on Level 1313, an Ahsoka/Rex team-up on Mandalore against Maul during the events of Revenge of the Sith, and discussion about the Ahsoka Lives movement.

During the era of the Clone Wars airing on television, Star Wars fans received the treat of many connections with the greater Star Wars mythology. However, we’ve never seen such an interconnected fireworks display of the Star Wars myth on television until the Star Wars Rebels midseason trailer dropped. With direct connections to the Clone Wars, the prequels, the original trilogy, and The Force Awakens, Star Wars Rebels graduated to an absolute must see for any Star Wars fan.
Rebels is transcending what any Star Wars TV show has ever accomplished previously. Let’s take a look at the trailer:
