My Fangirl Wishes for Star Wars Rebels Season Two

This is the clone you’re looking for…

It should be no surprise to those who know me, but I totally want a Clone Trooper to appear in Star Wars Rebels. Now, while I’d prefer to see them on the rebels’ side (and I imagine that would be a fabulous torment for poor Kanan), I wouldn’t be opposed to having my heart shattered seeing one working the docks in a thankless Imperial job.

All I want is something to help bridge what happened to these men who had once been so important, even if it isn’t a previously known clone.

The risk you Bridgers take. Tseebo say you must think of your son.

What was the risk exactly? Was it purely their radio messages? Or was there more involved? I want to know, and I want to know what exactly Tseebo told Hera during “Gathering Forces”. While I figured that, as we neared the end of the season, the likelihood of learning whatever Hera knew would become slimmer, I had hoped for something to be revealed in “Vision of Hope”. Sadly, that was not the case.

I’m not sure how long after the finale season two will start up, but given how much time has passed since Hera learned the information about Ezra’s parents, I’m really hoping that this is addressed sooner rather than later.

The female stormtrooper surveyed the cheering crowd…

Where are the female stormtroopers? They’re in Star Wars: A New Dawn, but where are the female troopers in Star Wars Rebels? I can understand why they only have the one background model for the generic Imperial Officer (budget reasons), but there is no excuse for them to not have a stormtrooper voiced by a female. It has been clarified that they wear the same armour, and since Steve Blum lends his voice to them, you’d think just once they’d have asked Vanessa Marshall or Tiya Sircar to do the same.

Of all the things Rebels has not done, this is the real thorn with me. All I can do is constantly ask, “Why not?“ And as of yet, I have not been able to think of any acceptable answer.

My armour is like my second skin.

Now, I’ve never had an issue with Sabine’s current armour and I’m quite a fan of it. Saying that, I am not at all opposed to it having alterations and additions, especially if it comes to her potentially having a jetpack or gauntlets that shoot fire. Dave Filoni has previously stated that Sabine will collect or add to her armour as time goes on, and since we didn’t see hints of that in season one, I’m hoping that season two will be the start of that process.

If I had to choose only one thing I would personally want Sabine to add to herself, I would have to pick a jetpack. It is so iconic and connected to Mandalorians that I just really want her to have one.

  2. I love what you are saying here. I would love to see some female kick butt stormtroopers in the series and also the change in Sabine’s armor especially since she is artistic and does seem like the kind of person to change her look every so often

  3. I agree with all of this 100%! I want female stormtroopers so much!!

    I would love to see Barriss Offee again :)

    • Oh yes! I’d love to see her too!

    • The Wolf Pack

      It would be cool to see what she is up to after her fall to the “dark side” during The Clone Wars. The person I really want to see is Rex, hopefully he isn’t serving the empire (crosses fingers)
