Her return to the STAR WARS universe probably one of the behind the scene team's worst kept secrets- hell, co-creator Dave Filoni pretty much said she was coming back at CELEBRATION EUROPE II, before STAR WARS REBELS had even aired! - the revelation of Ahsoka Tano being the shadowy Rebel spy "Fulcrum" was warmly welcomed by THE CLONE WARS fans, giving the late series a welcome bridging with its animated successor. It should be very intriguing to find out what happens next, and just how far integrated Tano will be in future REBELS seasons and with its main group. Does she know that Darth Vader is Anakin Skywalker, and just how did she escape the galactic purge initiated in Order 66? Importantly, will she and Vader finally, and fan expectantly, clash lightsabers?
Season Two of REBELS looks set to expand the series format greatly, with new worlds, new heroes and new villains promised, whilst having a good time celebrating the adventurous era of the Classic Trilogy its set. Truth be told, the show, despite a fast springing and voracious core fanbase, has not yet made the kind of international ratings impact with general audiences that THE CLONE WARS did in its premiere year, but the upcoming changes and this next, longer episode run, will surely make amends...
