    Yesterday, I wrote an article for this site about a post on our message board which said that a guy on another message board wrote about a seminar that Lucasfilm Story Group Grand Poobah Pablo Hidalgo held while he was on a boat. (Heck of a sentence, I know.) This article covered a series of rumors that Hidalgo himself responded to when our post was mirrored over Twitter, and I gave my thoughts on them. Now, someone in contact with the original source has relayed some new information from them, which further clarifies what was said - including whether or not Season 4 really is the end to Rebels.





    If you haven't read the original article, check the link above. Otherwise, none of this is going to make sense.



    The follow-up post, which was done by someone else who was apparently in contact with the anonymous poster on the other board, can be found here. The post seems to have been written in direct reply to the article I wrote, as it addresses some of the things I was unsure about. It reads as follows:
    I would like to note that we weren't planning on posting the original article until we got verification, but the cat got out of the bag before we could do anything about this, so there was no point in waiting. That being said, it's good that there's actual clarification on some of the more questionable points. Hidalgo certainly hinted that we're going to get an announcement about the next animated series in a few weeks, but right now I'd encourage people to keep their expectations in check - whatever it is they're developing right now won't arrive until Fall 2018 at the absolute earliest, given that Rebels will go on until Spring 2018 or so.



    Which brings us to the elephant in the room: the possibility that Rebels could be ending next season. The clarification seems to hint that Hidalgo's comments were a genuine slip of his tongue, but again, the possibility that the show may be ending next season still exists. As it currently stands, I still have doubts that Rebels will end with Season 4 - it seems like there are a lot of plot threads that the show still has to tie up, and there's a lot for a single season to cover. While they could do it all in one season, the show's love of including occasional 'fluff' episodes makes me think that they're going to space things out a bit further. Recent comments from Dave Filoni regarding Season 4 suggest that there may still be a Season 5 waiting in the wings (or at least that they're not going to tie up all loose ends just yet), making matters even more confusing. It definitely doesn't seem like they want their show to be cut short like The Clone Wars was, and given that there's no other Star Wars show on television right now, it doesn't seem like it's going to end until they have a new series ready.



    We'll most likely learn more about whether or not the next season of Rebels will be the last with the arrival of the show's 90-minute panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando on April 15. Until then, stay tuned to Star Wars News Net for the latest and greatest stories about the Galaxy Far, Far Away.
