‘Star Wars Rebels’ Finale Teaser Covers the Rise and Fall of Anakin and Ahsoka’s Friendship


Lucasfilm has released the first teaser for the “Star Wars Rebels” finale, which will air as a special one-hour episode, March 30 on Disney XD.

The teaser for the episode, titled “Twilight of the Apprentice,” follows the history of Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker — Ahsoka’s former Jedi mentor and close friend, as chronicled on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” — before the two go head-to-head on opposing sides in the “Rebels” finale.

Check out the teaser, called “Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader: The Rise and Fall of a Friendship,” below:

After gaining information about the Sith, Kanan, Ezra and Ahsoka battle the Inquisitors with the help of a new ally, but are overmatched when Vader arrives.

“Star Wars Rebels” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Disney XD.

    Dear god this show is still on? Since the start of season 2 all it’s done is drag. A couple of times they have given you a little bit of action but not a lot of actual story movement.

  • Michael Ferro

    Hmm, can one binge watch all 6 seasons of Clone Wars between now and March 30th? I will definitely try.

  • MindTricked

    Dang… I’m 99% sure Ahsoka will meet her end, and I’m not going to be a merry man afterward.

    Considering the movies never addressed whatever happened to Ahsoka, I would bet this season finale from Rebels will show her fate. It harkens back to my problem with the Expanded Universe in which most of what happens in Clone Wars and others is just trivial and doesn’t mean much as far as the movies are concerned. I simply WANT the movies to at least acknolwedge whatever happened in the Expanded Universe, but the narrative is set so that the Expanded Universe doesn’t exist.

    I get it. You don’t NEED to watch Clone Wars or Rebels, play KOTR, or read the numerous books and comics to appreciate Star Wars and just go with the movies as it’s the main narrative. But at the same time, such an attitude meant how alienated the Expanded Universe is because it’s not critical to get into them to understand and appreciate the franchise.

    The same can be said with the Marvel’s TV universe as they are affected by whatever happened on the MCU, but never the other way around. AoS in particular already had the Inhumans become public knowledge, but as far as the Avengers are concerned, none of them are aware of the Inhumans’ existence (you’d have to be literally in the same place as Hulk or Thor for not hearing about them).

    What I’m trying to say is I wish both the Star Wars and MCU (and to an extent, DCCU) worked alot like the way the Gundam franchise is handled, specifically it’s Universal Century era. There are numerous TV series, movies, books, etc. that all tie to the Universal Century timeline that all began with the original Mobile Suit Gundam Anime from 1979 and continues to this day. Virtually all works acknolwedge the main narrative of the UC era and how their stories reflect and/or are affected by it, as well as contribute to the events of the main narrative of the UC era.

    The character of Ahsoka Tano and the story of her end deserved better than this garbage TV show. Canceling Clone Wars to fund Rebels was Disney’s biggest mistake.

  • Justin

    I like that one doesn’t have to get mired down in hundreds (thousands?) of books, comics, TV Shows, games, web shorts, etc., to appreciate the main story, or to have knowledge about what’s going on in the main (movie) story. The EU was never important, unless an individual wanted to make it important. The movies set up the EU, not the other way around; but those that do get into it do get a little fan service (the reference to Quinlon Vos in ROTS is one example).

  • Masked Man Issue 1

    I just straight out ignore MOST of what happened in episodes II and III and go with the assumption that SW The Clone Wars is (was) the main story.

    2D Anakin = WAY BETTER than 3D Anakin.

    (but this is also why Ahsoka’s death is going to hurt, she deserves a better ending than this… can’t we just freeze her in carbonite until Episode VIII?

    They actually filmed Quinlon Vos’ death for RotS but sadly it got cut. It is instead a deleted scene on the blu-ray. Vos also had an apprentice who actually made it into the move though. She was the blue Twilek, Aayla Secura, who got gunned down by her clone troopers.
