While this is the end of Star Wars Rebels, there will be more animated Star Wars coming Filoni says.
Now it’s time for season four footage of Star Wars Rebels.
“Season four is the final season of Star Wars Rebels… it’s different, it’s dark; it’s fun” – Dave Filoni
“I know what it’s like when I don’t get to end an series… it wasn’t as fun.” – Dave Filoni
“Believe me, I know what it’s like when I DON’T get to end a series” – Dave Filoni
Season Four will be the final season of Star Wars Rebels
Warwick Davis will play Rukh from Heir to the Empire!
Saw Gerrera will be returning in season four.
Mon Mothma is back for Season Four and Filoni says “You might see Mon Mothma get a little fiery for once.”
Ezra will also go back and help his people.
Taylor Gray now talking about Ezra season four saying that he will have to decide what kind of a Jedi and person he is going to be.
“I think he makes some great decisions in season four,” Gray says.
Looks like Ezra gets a jet pack in season four!
“The good guys don’t always win” – FPJ on Star Wars Rebels Season 4. Compares it to the death of Obi-Wan in A New Hope.
“Kanan is still blind but he sees a lot more.” – FPJ
Trials defined who Kanan was and needs to be. He was “the cool uncle” and flipped to more of a Jedi
Tiya Sicar is talking about Sabine and the depth that will be added to her character this next season.
“If there are any Mandalorian fans… you might be surprised where we end up or who might show up in season four” Tiya on Star Wars Rebels Season 4
Mandalorian fans will be especially happy about certain episodes in season 4, where Sabine may end up – and who may show up!?!? Will we see the Galaxy’s most famous Mandalorian?
Chopper will care more about the crew in Season 4.
Chopper was difficult to work with during his “big debut” in Rogue One Dave Filoni visited the set to set him straight.
Chopper was jealous of the fame surrounding R2 on set of Rogue One. “The thing about Chopper is that he doesn’t have an arc” – Dave Filoni
Kallus has become a phenomenon… he’s referred to as “Hot Kallus” amongst the cast. <font color="0567fa” face=”Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif”>#HotKallus
“He gets 20% better at not losing Chopper in bets” and “he’ll star a family with Kallus” -Steve Blum on Season 4
Vanessa Marshall says Hera is “impacted by the losses the group experienced in Season 3.”
Now talking about season four and Hera, “It’s now time to really get it done.”
Dave Filoni says Thrawn was in the mix from the very beginning of Star Wars Rebels but waited until the time was right!
The Bendu was @RealFPJr‘s “Force Moose” Also favorite character in the whole series.
Actual take of Aunt Beru used in Twin Suns episode
Admiral Thrawn was at the beginning of the discussion for #StarWarsRebels says Dave Filoni
Star Wars is about the struggle between selfishness and selflessness and Obi-Wan and Maul embody both.
Obi-Wan pities Maul and doesn’t want to destroy him but is forced to.
Obi-Wan defeating Maul was one of the most satisfying results for the character Filoni said.
Filoni said that when Darth Maul returned Obi Wan Kenobi was brought up as returning.
Crowd goes wild for Dave Filoni and crew!
It’s time for the Star Wars Rebels Season Four Sneak Peek panel!
And with that, Day Two of Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 wraps up!
Mark Hamill is now thanking the audience “this is part of the process I need to move on. I tried very hard but you know, we lost Kenny Baker and Carrie in such a close period of time. You know, but she loved you and I certainly love you and I need your support and we all need each other’s support to make sure that we honor her legacy in a way that she earned and in a way that she deserves. And I’m thinking one last quote for you and that is for as long as we live, so too will she live, because she has become a part of us all and we’ll never stop missing her. Thank you so much. Thank you Carrie. Carrie thanks you and I thank you.”

“You are my only boss, thank you for not firing me.”
“There’s nobody like Carrie. Very few women could carry off the particular strength that she had.” – George Lucas in video about Carrie Fisher.
“For all the bravado, it was almost a defense mechanism you know? That she wore this toughness like armor but down deep there was the vulnerability of a little girl and it was enormously appealing.”

“we both really had a love of the absurd” – Mark Hamill on Carrie Fisher
After showing the tribute video to Carrie Fisher, Hamill is now sharing about beginning filming with her and adventures in the Death Star.
“Today is a day where it would be very easy to be consumed by grief. But let me tell you, when I go tot sleep at night. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. And when I think of her she is looking down from the celestial stratosphere with those big brown eyes and that sly smile on her face as she lovingly extends me the middle finger. And that’s how I want you to think of her. That was Carrie. She would be having a great old time!” – Mark Hamill
“There was something about the original film that will always be special because we were babes in the woods. We didn’t know WHAT would happen.” – Mark Hamill
“She had you under her spell” – Mark Hamill on Carrie Fisher and how every guy fell for her.

Hamill is now sharing about the first time he met Carrie Fisher. They had dinner together in London. He decided to switch roles with Peter Cohen when meeting Fisher as a joke.

His point? “She was much more entertaining than our lame joke.”
