Nowhere was that better on display this weekend than the “Star Wars Rebels Remembered” panel, where executive producer Dave Filoni, along with actors Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Grey spoke about the concluded series and revealed some new secrets about how that shocking ending went down.
The ending, of course, skips over the events of the entire Original Trilogy and sees Hera with a son, Ezra and Thrawn still missing, and Sabine and Ahsoka riding off to find them.
It was an ending that Filoni only told a few people at Lucasfilm about, just to make sure it was okay, before writing Sabine’s narration on a piece of paper as he flew on Southwest Airlines from San Francisco to Los Angeles to record voices.
On the panel, the cast explained that after recording their final day on the show, Filoni let everyone leave and asked only Sircar to stay.
However, when it was just her, Filoni and the sound engineer remaining, Filoni took a folded piece of paper out of his pocket and handed it to her.
It was Sabine’s narration revealing the true ending of the series.
