Rumor: Animated sequel series to 'Star Wars Rebels' arriving this year
------------------------------------------------------------ ----------
In recent weeks, there have been rumors of more Star Wars shows in the
pipeline than the ones we know about, such as a live-action Solo
spin-off about Crimson Dawn or an animated series involving Doctor
Aphra from the pages of Marvel Comics. Now, a new rumor suggests that
the sequel to Star Wars Rebels is on the way, possibly arriving as
soon as the end of the year!

Kessel Run Transmissions has released an exclusive via YouTube going
into how the next major animated Star Wars series after the return of
The Clone Wars will be a true follow-up to Rebels, continuing the
story left off by the finale (in which Sabine Wren traveled alongside
Ahsoka Tano in search of Ezra Bridger years after he helped oust the
Empire from Lothal for good). This plot point has not been brought up
at all since Rebels has ended, leaving the story an open door for
whomever wants to tell the story... And that story may indeed be overseen
by Dave Filoni, the showrunner of both The Clone Wars and Rebels.

The hosts of the Kessel Run Transmissions claim that they have received
several major scoops that they did not run previously, but proved to be
accurate, so they felt confident enough to run this story - especially
in light of some new, currently-unspecified evidence that they've
received. They claim that two reliable sources are telling them that
the Rebels sequel is moving forward:

"So what we've heard is that the Star Wars Rebels sequel show is in
development, it is gonna be animated, it is set for 2020 - this year -
yeah, and so that's pretty exciting. That's almost a given, too... In a
development process, that's natural for it to come now - Resistance is
winding down this year. The show will star Ahsoka and Sabine - again,
another given, but we've got confirmation of that - and we've heard
throughout the months that Dave Filoni is also attached to an animated
series. We're assuming it's this one... It's a good to bring that show
back. Obviously, it's not going to be called Star Wars Rebels, we have
no idea what it's gonna be called... I'm excited because this continues
the story of Ahsoka, and we'll get to see what she's doing. We haven't
heard about Ezra and Thrawn, but I'm assuming that they'd be in this
series... I did hear that the animation is supposed to be a lot tighter
than it was for Rebels [in its] four-season run... They're probably into
Season 2 by this point."

Lucasfilm gave Dave Filoni a promotion to oversee all animated content a
while back (in addition to giving him a shot at directing live-action
Star Wars shows), so it seems like the content that's been in the
pipeline is finally starting to surface, and by the end of this year if
this is of any indication. The people at Kessel Run Transmissions seem
to believe that it won't be announced until after The Clone Wars arrives
on Disney+, but before Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020. (A dedicated
panel for the show will likely happen if it's coming out so soon.) Some
ancillary evidence to suggest the development of this possible series
that the Kessel Run Transmissions hosts thought of was that Rebels voice
actors Taylor Gray, Tiya Sircar, Vanessa Marshall, and Steve Blum
apparently had to cancel an appearance at a convention a few months ago
due to work obligations.

With the movies going on hiatus until 2022, it seems that Lucasfilm have
opened the floodgates to expanding the influence of Star Wars on TV to
make up for that. It's entirely possible that we're going to see a
comparable amount of Star Wars content released through Disney+ to the
eight planned shows that Marvel intend to have out before the end of
2021. So far, the official Star Wars TV slate of shows after Resistance
wraps up includes The Clone Wars, Jedi Temple Challenge, The Mandalorian,
and two untitled shows starring Cassian Andor and K-2SO and Obi-Wan
Kenobi. This also may explain why Star Wars Resistance was apparently
written with a two-season run in mind, as it seemed like a sort of
appetizer to hold fans over for more animated Star Wars content. It's
also a likely reason as to why Resistance has no real ties to the other
cartoons, in spite of both of its predecessors (The Clone Wars and 
Rebels) being heavily connected.
For now, all four seasons of Star Wars Rebels are available to watch on
Blu-Ray and DVD, and can be streamed through Disney+.
