Episode 13 of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 has introduced the concept of a world between worlds, something that can have a profound impact on the franchise as a whole. In a Q&A at Lucasfilm after the episode aired, Executive Producer Dave Filoni teased some details about the new concept. The following article contains spoilers from episodes that have already aired.

When Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) walked into the world between worlds, there was “something else listening,” Dave Filoni said, as reported by Nerdist.

Filoni added that in this world, one has to be careful while wishing for something out loud. There were some thunder claps every time Ezra made some statements. Indeed, the world inside the Jedi Temple at Lothal is a dangerous place.

Episode 13 also showed what happened to Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) during the fight against Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones) at Malachor. The return of the Jedi apprentice opens up the possibility of the character being featured in future stories of the franchise. Filoni explained that he didn’t dwell too much into Ahsoka’s storyline because his objective was to tell only those stories related to the animation series.

The whole arc of episode 13 allowed Kanan (voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.) to correct the past and redeem the future. The Jedi knight could have easily walked away in Malachor, but his choice had a cascading effect, which he has now finally corrected with Ezra’s help.

With Kanan’s storyline having ended, the plot will now focus on the fight against the Empire. The finale of “Star Wars rebels” season 4 will focus on the fight against Grand Admiral Thrawn (voiced by Lars Mikkelsen).
