Star Wars Rebels: Season 2 Finale Preview Stills Released, Rogue One Crossover Possible In The Future?

Lucasfilm has released a full preview pack for the highly anticipated Star Wars Rebels season 2 finale, Twilight of the Apprentice parts 1 and 2.

Yesterday, we reported the first preview released via EWshowing Ezra and a mysterious "Old Master," who appears to be Darth Maul, exploring what looked like an old Jedi temple. It came with a Rebels Recon episode which discussed the events from The Mystery of Chopper Base and which later on featured a quick clip of Twilight as well.



Now, the studio released 8 new stills of the upcoming episode featuring Ezra with a hilted lightsaber like Kylo Ren's, Kanan & Ahsoka blocked by a group of inquisitors, and not surprisingly, Darth Maul.

Take a look at the new photos:

Meanwhile, there's new speculation that a Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story crossover could happen sometime in the future. Rumors surfaced after Rogue One story writer Gary Whitta tweeted recently that he's working on a Rebels episode. The writer has done some work with Lucasfilm's animation branch. In May 2015, Whitta also tweeted about writing a Rebels episode. The tweet came with a photo of his daughter wearing a Rebels pyjamas while watching the series.

Whitta's tweet is seen below:



Fans have previously pined for a Rogue One and Rebels crossover, so it's no surprise that rumors are once again surfacing after Whitta's tweet. It's remains unclear whether the writer's first episode was for season 2 or not.

As much as we'd like to see a crossover, nothing is certain until Lucasfilm releases an official statement. It would be fan service, but I'm pretty sure a crossover has crossed the minds of Rebels' head honchos already. I think if the studios receive enough clamor, it'd be pretty hard to ignore. Of course, they could simply do one just for the fun of it.

What do you think?

The two-part Star Wars Rebels: Twilight of the Apprentice finale will air on March 30 at 9 p.m. on Disney XD.
