The Legacy of Mandalore offered a big twist in the animated series’ storyline. Yet is it enough to ease the fears of fans about the chances of a Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal?
Rumors about the Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal hint it might not happen. Indeed, Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to give the animated series the green light.
Moreover, reports tease about a new animated series possibly in the works to take its place. Yet the latest episode Legacy of Mandalore could wipe out fears of Star Wars Rebels season 4 being cancelled.
Legacy of Mandalore Recap
In a surprising turn of events, Sabine Wren opted to stay behind on her homeland. She plans to work together with her family to free Mandalore from the Empire, Screen Rant reports.
The episode focused heavily on Sabine’s arc. Indeed, it was an opportunity for fans to meet her family and learn more about her backstory.
As it turns out, her defiance of the Empire led to her family’s disgrace. This would explain her mother Countess Ursa Wren’s icy reception upon her return. Even so, the episode echoed the strong theme of family prevalent throughout the Star Wars franchise.
In Sabine’s fight with Gar Saxon, the Emperor’s Hand, Ursa chose family over allegiance to the Empire. With her help, her daughter ably defeats Saxon using the Darksaber.
Her victory over Saxon might seem like the perfect ending to cap her journey. Then again, it would appear to offer hope for the Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal as it opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
How the Legacy of Mandalore Affects Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Renewal
Indeed, Comicbook.com is optimistic about a Star Wars Rebels season 4 announcement happening anytime soon. Apparently, it has a lot to do with the twist presented by the Legacy of Mandalore.
As it turns out, it could indicate Star Wars Rebels season 4 episodes have more stories to tell. Indeed, showrunner Dave Filoni’s hints about Sabine’s possible return bodes well for the future of the animated series.
“So, I think we have taken some strong steps towards that with always an eye on ‘Does the adventure continue?’ So we’ll have to see. For Sabine, hopefully the adventure will continue. That would be great because then we can change her hair again. People love that,” Filoni said.
Beyond Sabine, Legacy of Mandalore also hints at the entry of a major Mandalorian whom fans would recall as part of The Clone Wars. Recently, the animated series brought back Saw Gerrera. So, the chances of Bo-Katan Kryze making a comeback appear strong as well.
