Kanan may have a bigger role to play in the Star Wars franchise. A new report suggests that the “Star Wars Rebels” character (voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr) has a chance to appear in the spin-off movie “Solo.” There may be more crossovers in the future as Disney plans additional new TV shows.

Season 4 will be the last for “Star Wars Rebels,” but it will not be the end for some characters in the series. Fans already know that Hera (voiced by Vanessa Marshall) will be alive at least until the events in “Rogue One,” in which her name was called and the ship Ghost was seen. Now there is a possibility of another character from the show making a cameo in another spin-off.

According to a report by Cinema Blend, Kanan may be featured in the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Very little is known about the backstory of the character, from the time after Order 66 until he became a Rebel. What's known, via the canon novel “A New Dawn,” is that the former Jedi turned to drinking and enjoyed the company of the ladies. Kanan later met with Hera Syndulla.

The report points out that since Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando (Donald Glover) are the types who would frequent the establishments where Kanan used to hang out, it is possible that the former Jedi will make an appearance in one of these “seedy” locations.

Meanwhile, although “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 is the last instalment of the popular show, there is good news. Disney CEO Bob Iger recently announced that they are not working on just one TV series at the moment, but a few, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
