‘Star Wars: Rebels‘ May Be Getting A Spin-Off Series on Disney+. According to showrunner Dave Filoni, he feels there are several characters who’s stories are not yet complete, and that we MAY get to see them unfold on Disney’s new streaming platform, Disney+. Filoni has been hard as work with Jon Favreau on the set of The Mandalorian Season 2, it seems he is working equally as hard on other Star Wars projects, including a potential new series that will likely become a spin-off series from Star Wars: Rebels, with focuses on characters such as Ahsoka Tano and Sabine.
“I feel a responsibility to know and start to figure out what that story is because the fans seem really interested in it, as I’m interested in it,” the producer shared. “Whether it actually ever happens, I don’t know yet, but I still think about it anyway. I think of all kinds stories, and some of them happen and find their way into a release, and some don’t.”
With his busy schedule, Comicbook.com had asked Dave if he would be comfortable allowing other storytellers to continue sharing stories of characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, to which he claims would “be hard to do” given his time and effort given with each of these characters since the beginning.
“That would be hard,” Filoni shared, “That would be, to be honest. That’d be really hard for me to do at this point, just because I’ve been a part of it for so long. Since, especially, Ahsoka’s beginning,” Filoni shared. “I can’t imagine not being involved in some way with what would happen to her. Or Sabine, for that matter.”
We would love to see more Star Wars on Disney+, especially with the raging success of The Mandalorian proving there are many other stories yet to be told within the Star Wars Universe. After the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, fans have been calling for more Star Wars content with Ahsoka Tano, many asking for her own live-action series on Disney+.
