Default The "Which Characters Will Appear" Speculation Thread

Given this is the latest spin-off in the Star Wars franchise, I'm surprised no one has brought up the question of which characters might show up in Rebels, and what size roles they would play. Given its place in the franchise's timeline, I think Rebels is especially well poised in this respect as it can easily have both, Classic and Prequel era characters appear.

Personally, I think characters like Mon Mothma, Bail Organa and Tarkin are safe bets to appear at some point in the series. The former two could well make frequent appearances, especially if the Ghost crew is part of the larger Rebel Alliance. Likewise, Tarkin would be a good candidate to up the stakes whenever a "Bigger Bad" than the Inquisitor is needed and the show doesn't want to have Darth Vader look bad by getting defeated by a small group of rebels.

On the flip side, I don't anticipate the original characters from the Clone Wars cartoon to show up. At least, not as a direct reference - perhaps a vague allusion with their name never specifically mentioned or their faces physically shown. The reason I suspect this is the query of who owns the rights to those characters. Does Cartoon Network (or some other third party company) hold any share of the rights to the characters? If it does, then it's unlikely that Rebels would be given permission to use them.


Anyway, what does everyone else think?

Pretty sure we'll be seeing Cad Bane again. I was hoping we would, then his face showed up in some Sabine concept art as graffiti on a wall -good sign!

I really hope we get to see a young Wedge also at some point.

I hope Jan Dodonna, General Rieekan, & the Bothans mentioned in ROJ make an appearance. As for the Imperial Empire, I hope Tarkin shows up, along with Generals Motti & Tagge from the first Death Star.

I'd actually welcome seeing Fett on Rebels. Hopefully other bounty hunters like the ones we saw in ESB make appearances too.

I'm hoping for Maul, or at least a flashback showing his final defeat.

The characters's return and rise to power in the underworld was too awesome for some lame duck comic to chronicle his end.

If we don't see a grown Ahsoka I will be pissed.

I agree with mr. peasant that Tarkin, Mon Mothma and Bail Organa (and, therefore, R2 and 3PO) are all likely to appear at some point. Maybe not during the first season, but eventually.

I also think we will actually see both the Emperor and Vader down the road. Not necessarily in action, but perhaps in a scene where they are meeting with the Inquisitor. I think Lando and Boba may be possibilities as well.

As far as Clone Wars characters, I hope we will see Cad Bane, Asajj Ventress and Ahsoka at some point down the road.

However, I'm not sure we will see any of these beloved characters during the first season. At least, not the major ones. Rebels needs to establish their original characters and give people a reason to become invested in them before bringing the more familiar faces into the mix.

That's pretty much where I stand too. I have no doubt that they'll introduce some familiar characters down the road, but now isn't the time for them.

Well, the show already introduced the last three already. So there's that.

I do think we'll see Tarkin soon. He kept getting name-dropped in the pilot.
