“Star Wars Rebels” season 4 is the last chapter of the animated TV series. Creator and executive producer Dave Filoni appeared in a new video to talk about the journey, as well as what to expect on the show this year.

There will be some “weird stuff” on the show this year, Filoni teased in the video (see below). The producer said this was the best season they have worked on, and fans will be particularly interested to know that there will be no filler episodes.

The “weird” things Filoni refers to has to do with imagery. The producer did not reveal too much details, but said this will “echo” some of the things they have done in the past. Filoni hopes the fans will like what he and his team have created, adding that some are really accepting of the things that they have done in the past.

“Star Wars Rebels” has come a long way. The producers initially had the challenge of telling a story about a new set of character. “The Clone Wars” animation series had some familiar characters, but the new show had to make sure they were creating characters that fans would really care about. Filoni explained how they had to make sure that the journey was different from that of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), for example, but at the same time keep the values of the franchise that George Lucas built.

Filoni said everything that happens in “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 has to happen. There will be things that viewers want to see, yet there will be other things that will surprise them.
