Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gave us a hint at which Star Wars Rebels character might endure. It was announced that Rebels will be entering its fourth and final season, but one lingering question is what is the fate of our beloved ragtag team aboard the Ghost? We may have an answer regarding one of our Rebels fate. The new Force of Destiny shorts may have revealed which character who lives on.
The shorts are considered to be canon official canon according to Entertainment Weekly, and it looks like we’ll see Vanessa Marshall reprising her role as Hera Syndulla alongside Return of the Jedi’s Leia.
“Perhaps most intriguing to movie fans will be the story set on the Ewok moon of Endor from Return of the Jedi. Although plot details are under wraps, Hera Syndulla from Rebels and Princess Leia team up for an adventure with Han Solo – and lots of little furballs carrying primitive weapons.”
The fate of the crew aboard the Ghost is not addressed in Rogue One so the Force of Destiny shorts opens up many possibilities. Could Hera have survived even past Return of the Jedi? Could Hera’s presence on Endor confirm the Rex/ Bearded rebel soldier fan theory? There will be a lot more question to be answered in the final season of Star Wars Rebels this fall.
