Star Wars Rebels is approaching at lightspeed, with the final moments just weeks away — loaded with two episodes per week and an hour and a half series finale. Ending at the beginning of the events of A New Hope and Rogue One, Rebels is going to end with a bang.
With appearances from Grand Admiral Thrawn, Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious, and the reveal of Ahsoka’s fate, Star Wars fans are also in for a multitude of surprises along the way. Hera is the only main character of the Ghost crew who is safe since we know she survives until the end of the events of Return of the Jedi. Everyone else is fair game, with the stakes as high as a heated game of Sabacc.
The Musical score for the final Star Wars Rebels episodes has surfaced, revealing many details on the arcs final chapter — including the fate of a particular Jedi Knight.
Major Spoilers for Star Wars Rebels ahead, you’ve been warned again.
Off the bat, Dave Filoni teases us with a glimpse through the lens of Hera, who seems to be gazing at her true love, Kanan Jarrus. Speaking of Kanan, the musical score reveals his fate, so read at your own risk.

Much like the early reveal for The Phantom Menace (Qui-Gon’s Noble End), we receive the same tragic news for Kanan Jarrus, Jedi Knight, via an early reveal from the official soundtrack for Rebels. What a beautiful musical score to say goodbye to one of the most intriguing Jedi in Star Wars history. Dave Filoni and the Lucasfilm story group will no doubt send him off in epic fashion on screen, as well.
The other two tracks are shrouded in mystery, which leaves more questions than answers. But once again, the composer for Rebels delivers with an emotional musical tone. It’s not much of a surprise that Kanan will meet the Maker soon, but seeing this confirmation brings feelings of grief.
Remembering the wise words of Yoda will help us get through this hardship:
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not.
Star Wars Rebels returns on Disney XD, February 19., where we will send off Kanan Jarrus and possibly other fan favorites in the process.
