** [[spoiler:Ahsoka's reappearance in the Season 1 finale.]]



* To many fans, the revelation that [[spoiler:a war between the Jedi and Mandalorians]] is now canon is causing this reaction. One more snippet of KOTOR is canon.
* [[spoiler:Kanan and Hera ''finally'' kissing]] in "Kindred". Pretty much the entire fandom has been on board with the ship since day one, and we finally got it.



** What happens in "A World Between Worlds" blows ''everything'' that has come before [[SerialEscalation completely out of the water]]:
*** Ezra enters the titular "World Between Worlds" and hears [[spoiler: voices from the past, present, and future of '''''[[HolyShitQuotient EVERY]]''''' canon installment in the ''entire franchise'' to date, including ''Film/RogueOne'' and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. Dave Filoni has now stitched [[ArcWelding the entire Star Wars universe]] together in [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome one fell swoop.]]]]
*** Ezra sees [[spoiler: Ahsoka locked in her battle with Darth Vader in the past, and ''literally reaches through time'' to pull her into the present. Ahsoka is alive, and the Force can now be used for ''time travel.'']]
*** [[spoiler: '''[[GreaterScopeVillain Emperor Palpatine]]''' personally attacks Ahsoka and Ezra while they're in the World Between Worlds. Hearing the living page-image for BigBad speak the names "Ezra Bridger" and "Ahsoka Tano" is the kind of thing that fans only dream about.]]
* [[spoiler: Pellaeon finally makes the jump from ''Legends'' to canon in the finale, and WordOfGod is that he survived!]]
* [[spoiler: Kanera shippers rejoice, as Hera gives birth to [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy Kanan's kid]] sometime after the series ends.]] Wonder whether [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar anyone else on the ship knew.]]
* [[spoiler: Sabine's final narration confirms that Rex fought in [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi the Battle of Endor]], [[AscendedFanon all-but confirming]] he was the bearded soldier in Han Solo's strike team!]]
* [[spoiler: Thrawn, Ezra, and Ahsoka are confirmed to be ''[[HolyShitQuotient still alive]]'' post-''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'']], with the latter even joining up with Sabine to go search for the former. That's one hell of a SequelHook to end on. Well played, Filoni.


* The Season 4 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jWIDwq44ZI mid-Season trailer]] reveals that [[spoiler: '''[[HolyShitQuotient EMPEROR]] [[GreaterScopeVillain PALPATINE]]''']] is coming to Rebels, and none other than [[spoiler: [=Ian McDiarmid=]]] is returning to voice him. And Ezra's going to ''fight him.'' There has been a disturbance in the force, as if millions of fans just peed their pants at once, and then were silenced.

* Fans suffering from AwesomenessWithdrawal after the finale of ''Rebels'' need not fret, and say hello to ''[[https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--1ErSjja_--/c_scale,f_auto,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/i8ksdgelp7kbxwhehbz7.png Star Wars: Resistance]]''! And what we know so far sounds absolutely amazing:
** It's going to be portrayed in an {{Animesque}} art-style, and feature heavily around the high-speed fighter squadrons of the burgeoning Resistance.
** The series will be set during the [[Film/TheForceAwakens Sequel]] [[Film/TheLastJedi Trilogy]], and none other than Creator/OscarIsaac and Creator/GwendolineChristie will be reprising their roles as Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma!

** The reveal of the [[spoiler:mosaic of the Father, Son, and Daughter, with a very familiar convor on the Daughter's shoulder who later meets Ezra inside the Jedi Temple]], confirming quite a few fan theories and possibly hinting at [[spoiler:Ahsoka's return]]. Kanan wasn't kidding when he said the Empire was up to something big on Lothal.

* The ''Ghost'' and Chopper both make cameos in ''Film/RogueOne''!

[[WordOfGod Dave Filoni has even confirmed it's referring to Hera and not her father.
