At today’s “Star Wars Rebels” panel during Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando, Florida, series showrunner Dave Filoni announced that the popular Disney XD show would be concluding with the upcoming season four.
The cast of “Rebels” was on hand for the at-capacity event in Celebration’s Galaxy Stage hall, where they also revealed the first trailer for the fourth and final season.
Another big reveal made during the panel was the addition of actor Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok in “Return of the Jedi”) to the cast. Davis will be portraying the Noghri character Rukh from Timothy Zahn’s “Heir to the Empire” trilogy of novels. Both Rukh and Grand Admiral Thrawn were popular characters relegated to “Star Wars Legends” non-canon status until their resurrections in “Rebels.”
