A Star Wars Rebels fan video pulls together live-action and animated Star Wars footage for the voices in 'World Between Worlds'. After four years and as many seasons, the Star Wars Rebels series finale will air tonight with a special 90-minute two-parter. The show has a lot to wrap up both from its own storylines and those carried over from The Clone Wars. What's more, the show seems to be building right up to the moments before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story began.
No matter what happens tonight, it's sure to be emotionally intense. However, one of last week's episodes set the stage for the finale in a fascinating way. 'World Between Worlds' in particular saw Rebels add to Star Wars canon in a big way with a new elaboration on what the Force can do. Ezra walked between time itself, as voices from Yoda, Obi-Wan, Jyn Erso, and more were heard all around him. Now, a new video adds in the video footage to match the audio.
Star Wars Explained edited the various scenes from last week's Star Wars Rebels to add in footage of all the voices in 'World Between Worlds' that fans heard. Mixing both live-action and CGI footage, the scene serves as a fitting encapsulation of both Rebels and the entire Star Wars universe.
The Force has long been described as allowing users to experience the past and future, but Rebels took the Star Wars mythos into new territory. Showrunner Dave Filoni has discussed the big development, noting it's not something we'll see used often in the future. However, it is an extension of some key Jedi lore and will now and forever be a part of the canon.
What's more, the episode also brought back Ahsoka Tano. The fan-favorite Jedi was seemingly killed by Darth Vader in Rebels season 2, but 'World Between Worlds' revealed that the mysterious Force location can allow users to interact with other time periods and not just view them. Whether Ahsoka will return in tonight's finale, we'll have to wait and see.
Another option is Ahsoka and even the World Between Worlds will return in the next Star Wars TV show. We've heard an announcement will be made "soon", which could be regarding either the follow-up animated series or the first ever live-action Star Wars show. With the future promising a lot more content thanks to Disney's upcoming streaming service, the end of Star Wars Rebels won't be the last time the galaxy far, far away graces the small screen.
The Star Wars Rebels series finale airs tonight on Disney XD.
