Star Wars Rebels ended on a cliffhanger as Ahsoka Tano returned to Lothal to recruit Sabine Wren to hunt the galaxy to find their lost comrade Ezra Bridger.
Tano would make a brief cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker when her voice is heard encouraging Rey to fight back against Emperor Palpatine alongside a number of other fallen Jedi including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Mace Windu.
Given Tano’s voice was heard in The Rise of Skywalker, many fans believed Tano died by the time the events of the film.

However, Filoni took to Twitter to reassure fans that Tano’s story was far from over and that she might not actually be dead.
On Christmas day, Filoni wrote on Twitter, “Was thinking of all of you this fine morning, Happy Holidays! – Dave”
He included a drawing of Gandalf from Lord of the Rings talking to Ahsoka. Gandalf tells the former Jedi, “People thought I was dead, too. Look how that turned out…”
