    I think they both will die in sacrifice,off-screen in a younglings-esque type scene like from ROTS.Darth Vader will kill them.

    We still don't know what Episode 7 will offer. Imagine Kanan (less likely), Ezra (more likely) or even Ashoka pop up there. Star Wars need to transcend its own made status quo. I maintain for long the position Ezra is introduced in Star Wars for something more than transient hero.

    I'm almost envisioning Kanan sacrificing himself and as his last words to Ezra, he says: "RUN...HIDE!!" and it fades to black.

    On 15 Ezra managed to knock down the invincible Vader, using skillfully the anger from the good side. On 20 he could kill the emperor, if the timeline story would have allowed it. Why don't we have time machine changes? Star Wars is a good place to demonstrate it to the young public how time machine works, changing the past and the future. Perhaps it won't be adopted, but it is a good idea to think What If.

    That's something that can likely happen.It would mirror the last words spoken by Depa Billaba to Kanan.The thing is,as this is a show aimed for younger viewers(while the last 2 seasons of TCW were more mature IMO) I'm not sure if it could really end that way.Maybe they will make a novel about Ezra Bridger one day?Difficult to say right now.The 2nd season just started.I'm pretty sure Ahsoka won't be alive in TFA. I think that would feel ,,forced".Hope you folks understand what I mean.

    the movie is not made for us, surely. There should be hope in it. It serves social and mentoring function more than we imagine. To the point of mind formation of generation that will be active in 5-10-15 years later. Whether that fits to G.Lucas' original ideas, and how it will fit into the OT, is less important. We witness a major rearrangement in Star Wars, and that's why many people who loved OT, don't like it very much. I was disappointed by both PT and Clone Wars. Now I find a new beginning and that is encouraging.

    Ezra won't hide and won't die anytime soon. Perhaps he could go for several episodes to Dagobah to be trained by Yoda. Clone Wars didn't take place on a single planet either.
    For the other heroes, I don't know. Some of them may die, including Kanan, but not very soon. New characters may be added to the team from the new planets they will visit. As it happened with the young friend of Ashoka from Federation-controlled planet.

    All those Federation-allied worlds are unlikely to be invaded by the Empire so soon, only 15 years after the Republic fell to Palpatine's rule. The Rebel fleet, quite significant and different type than the Republican/Imperial destroyers, should be built somewhere. On those planets Ezra and his team could find safe haven for the time being. There are also unexplored regions of the galaxy. There is enough space, and time, for the heroes to continue their journey.

    Whatever Episode 7 will offer, it was already postponed to give place to Rebels to appear. We may expect surprises. Moreover, it is 6 months into the earth's own insecure future timeline. Imagine a major event happens on Earth that changes our views. Not necessarily 9/11 style. Then we will have a changed reality that will be reflected into the most influential film. As with the final years of Cold War that matched with the OT.

    Now, I know this is something that has often been discussed but I thought I would start the conversation again as we head in to the final season...

    What do we all think the fate of our two Jedi will be? Can/ will they survive? If not, how will the meet their end?

    ...And, will they be involved in any way with the events in Rogue One?

    I have been hooked on Rebels since the start and I cannot come up a fitting way for them to leave the show! - I'm hoping someone here will!

    They have to die.

    By the time of Rogue One there doesn't appear to be any Jedi (or Force Users) fighting for the Rebel Alliance, hence why they appear to be keen to find Kenobi.

    Anything else would take some explaining.

    "We are the balance, Ezra. We were meant to be the Jedi so we could be here, now, when Lothal needs us most."

    I don't know how would they explain Kanan surviving - because he was officially knighted by Yoda through the Force vision in the Jedi temple. There is a chance, however, for Ezra who may stay on Lothal as its guardian, following Kanan's sacrifice or something. The galaxy is huge and while there are no Jedi by the time of ANH (except Obi-Wan and Yoda), there are plenty Force users running around, the Force didn't disappear just because Jedi did. We will see, but I just cannot imagine a scenario in which Kanan lives. It breaks my heart because he is one of my favorites in all Star Wars.

    Maybe Ahsoka lets him in her wolf pack. :D

    I seriously hope they die. This is not meant to be offensive to their fans or anything, but I do think it would be more instrumental for the general narrative of the saga if Obi-Wan and Yoda truly were the last Jedi before the advent of Luke.

    I think Kanan will die. There's really no way he can't in order to keep continuity. I do have a thought that Ezra will go with Zeb to Lira San, while Sabine goes to her people. This leaves Hera and Chopper with the Rebellion. Leaves a bittersweet ending and a glimmer of hope beyond Luke and Leia.

    I can see Kanan sacrificing himself and Ezra becoming some sort of mystical guardian of Lothal (like Obi-Wan was in Tatooine).

    My guess/opinion- (otherwise known as: "what I feel ought to happen".)

    Kanan and Ezra put themselves into a sacrificial position, "against impossible odds", -perhaps saving Lothal.

    At a final moment, Kanan sees a possibility for Ezra's survival, most likely telling him to "Run!", as his own master once did for his sake. Ezra witnesses his friend's demise, and manages to make his escape.

    ...

    Ezra.

    The name "Ezra" has always given me reason to wonder. Some of us may have looked up "Ezra the Priest" as a name reference.
    *This* Ezra was a priest who was connected to the last high priest to serve in the First Temple, but also had a link to the first priest to serve in the Second Temple.

    Hmm. "Ezra Bridger" indeed.

    Maybe. ...Not likely.

    They're (admittedly) not "exactly-perfectly" matching puzzle pieces...and I know I'm not the first to make such a connection, -but I can't help but mention it again in such a thread.

    I hope something of Ezra reaches Luke eventually. –A wink to the (minority) viewers of 'Rebels' that won't be confusing to the (majority) viewers of strictly the films.
    ...Not expecting Ezra to pop up in the sequel trilogy...even though I think of the character every time I see BDT. Though I suppose that rumour has been quashed long ago.

    Ezra, the main character of this Disney XD show targeted at a younger audience, will not die in the course of the show. It just won't happen. For that matter, I really doubt they would take on the death of more than one main character in a single season.

    So, that means that either Kanan or Ahsoka (assuming she is alive, which I do) will still be alive at the end of the show. Karan is the most likely to die if anyone does, but if they have to figure out how to deal with continuity having Ezra and one of these two still alive at the end, then they can just as easily figure out a way to have them all stay alive.

    I'm not saying it won't happen, I'm just trying to show the point that it does not HAVE to happen soley due to continuity clashes. Unless they kill Ezra, Ahsoka, and Kanan, then they have to address the continuity, so any one of them remaining alive will need to deal with the continuity. In an interview one of the powers that be (Pablo Hidalgo?) have said they absolutely don't plan to make that scene in ESB irrelevant. So, they have something up there sleeve, but it doesn't HAVE to be a triple death.

    Now whether the solution they come up with satisfies everyone, that is another thread topic altogether... :)

    I think Bendu was brought in to provide one or both of them an out. They either have to die or not be Jedi in some way. Perhaps they head out to the outer rim to learn more about the Force. I do not think Ezra is done with the Dark Side.

    By the time of R1 (battle of Scariff) we can see Phantom is missing, and we know Hera and Chopper are there for sure and nothing about the rest members, I bet at least where Kanan or Ezra (or both of them) are will be shown as parallel plot in the end of Rebels Season 4, so I believe Kanan will find good reason not to join his family and miss such a huge events of the Galaxy. He is dead or gone somewhere for a long mission, but not changed his mind about the cause, not left Hera to deal with the Rebellion on her own. Even when Hera helps Han and Leia on Endor (according to Forces of destiny) does not mean all the rest are dead and gone. Bendu is involved for sure as an early concept of the Force, Lothal as Ezra's home, old Jedi masters who want (and they did it) Luke to believe he is the only one who is able to defeat Vader.

    Storytelling becomes very tricky when there are so many connections to explain...
