Though this year will see the end of Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels, that doesn't mean the story won't go on for the show's characters. We already know that Hara Syndulla was in Rogue One, but did you know that she was also present in Empire Strikes Back during the Battle of Hoth?
Some Reddit users have pointed out that the newest issue of Forces of Destiny has Leia getting lessons on Tauntaun riding from Hera. Check it out:
With Star Wars as expansive as it is, I'm interested to see how many more connections we're going to get as the films go on. Thanks to the Rogue One comic, we know that Leia has already met Jyn Erso in her youth, and the Leia book also covers the old friendship between Leia and Admiral Holdo.
With Hera frequently showing up and getting mentioned outside of Rebels, we can be assured that she survives whatever the finale of Star Wars Rebels is going to be. As for the rest of the Ghost crew, I have a feeling that Kanan and Ezra are going to meet their end somehow. If you thought Luke's death in The Last Jedi was bad, I wonder what fanboys will have to say about Rebels ending.
Star Wars Rebels should resume sometime this year.
