A new episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 is finally out and it looks like it's the most exciting chapter so far, thanks to the highly anticipated debut of a certain character. However, did Chapter 13: The Jedi also tease at a possible Star Wars Rebels sequel being in the works?
WARNING: The following contains SPOILERS from The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5 so proceed with caution.
In Chapter 13, it is revealed early on that Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) has some business with the Magistrate of the city of Calodan. As she faces Morgan Elsbeth, Ahsoka gives the magistrate a day to surrender and give up the location of her master.
When Ahsoka meets Mando and Baby Yoda, she immediately connects with The Child and confirms they can read each others' thoughts because of the Force. However, she is hesitant about training Grogu in the ways of the Jedi and it looks like it was more than just because she saw fear in Baby Yoda.
When Ahsoka fights the Magistrate, she forces the woman to reveal the location of Morgan's master, who turns out to be Grand Admiral Thrawn. The name drop immediately had Rebels fans talking since Thrawn is the one person who knows where Ezra Bridger is.
In the Rebels finale, Ahsoka and Sabine Wren teamed up to find Ezra after the Jedi chose to stay with Thrawn's ship so he could defeat the villain. The Mandalorian Season 2 may have just confirmed that the search continues or that Ahsoka is determined to complete Ezra's mission.
Does this mean we'll be getting a live-action Star Wars Rebels sequel? For now, it's too early to tell. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if Lucasfilm announces it soon.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5 is now streaming on Disney+.
