Are we going to see Han Solo in Star Wars Rebels season 4?


A Star Wars Topps card list may provide clues to Han Solo making a cameo on Star Wars Rebels season 4…

When Star Wars Rebels returns to Disney XD for its fourth and final season, the show will begin to connect with the Star Wars films like Rogue One and A New Hope. In that regard, a possible connection to Han Solo has been revealed through the Topps Journey to The Last Jedi checklist. Check it out:

The category is labeled “Hero’s Quest,” so it should be noted that this isn’t necessarily a Star Wars Rebels only list, but it does seem like it’s mostly Rebels-centric. Let’s break it down.

  • In need of a New Hyperdrive

Obviously, this sounds like it could be a The Phanom Menace reference when Qui-Gon Jinn and Padme meet Anakin as a young boy. However, it could also be a callback to that film as the group from Rebels has to find a new hyperdrive for the Ghost.

  • Appealing to the Senate

Could we see Mon Mothma make a plea to the Senate in Star Wars Rebels? If the show is connecting to A New Hope, then the events are just before the Death Star is revealed to the galaxy and Mon Mothma might think there is one last chance to appeal to her fellow senators to stop Palpatine.

  • Hunting the Assassin

Again, this could be from the Prequels where Obi-Wan is tasked to find the man behind the attack on Senator Amidala in Attack of the Clones. It could also, very well be referring to the Rebels hunting down Rukh, an assassin in the employ of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who we know will be in season 4, thanks to the trailer.

  • Mission to Geonosis

The Rebels have been to that planet, might they return in season 4?

There are a few more that are obvious nods to the Prequels, and there are also obvious nods to Star Wars Rebels, so let’s skip down to the good stuff.

  • The Rescue of Han Solo

In the Original Trilogy film Return of the Jedi, Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker plans a daring rescue of Han Solo (and Princess Leia). This title could certainly be pointing to that. But, what if the crew of the Ghost encounters Han Solo the infamous smuggler, before the events of A New Hope?

It would certainly be a fantastic way for Star Wars Rebels to bridge the gap between the Prequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy, and it would be an extremely fun reveal for Star Wars fans in general.
