I love Star Wars Rebels. LOVE IT. The show has become a big part of my fandom and has worked its way into my heart. As I try to pass time until the fourth and final (sob) season of Star Wars Rebels I’ve been thinking about characters I’d like to see again before we say goodbye (for now) to the Ghost family. A caveat: I am terrible at speculation and predictions. I know that many of my thoughts are not feasible or practical, and I’m not focusing on Saw Gerrera, Mon Mothma or Ahsoka (although I hope to see lots of each of them!) and this is more of a fun wishlist than anything else.
Cassian and K2SO
With Kallus’ complete defection to the Rebels, we find ourselves in need of a new Fulcrum. Who better than Cassian Andor and his faithful and hilarious sidekick, K2SO? Can you imagine K2 and Chopper together? Enough said.
Zare Leonis and Merei Spanjaf
Remember Cadet Leonis from Season One? Jason Fry has written a series of books called Servants of the Empire featuring Zare and his girlfriend Merei. If you haven’t read these books, I’m telling you, you are in for a treat–they are great stories with fantastic characters and lots of adventure. I think as the Rebellion begins to solidify there is a great opportunity for Zare and Merei to show up and make a contribution.
A scoundrel with a heart of gold introduced in the comic series Kanan The Last Padawan could pack an emotional punch, especially for Kanan. It seems feasible the Rebellion would have regular contact with bounty hunters and scoundrels, and Janus Kasmir would be a great way to tie-in the comic to the series.
Bonus: A Legends Character: Winter
I am still dipping my toes into the Legends ocean, but I’ve read a small handful of Legends books, almost all of them post-Return of the Jedi . I think that Winter, could make an interesting addition to the Rebellion. In Legends, she is known for her close friendship with Leia, as well has her extreme intelligence and photographic memory. Adding Winter into Rebels would allow a Legends call back as well as bring a much-needed female character into the Rebellion.
What characters do you hope to see in Season Four of Star Wars Rebels? I’m sure I’ve forgotten some great possibilities!
