The Mandalorian is no stranger to introducing some familiar things. The series has already brought some aspects of Star Wars that we have already seen in the movies, tv shows, and video games, and it just keeps coming. Fans are loving it, too. The Mandalorian team has a very special way of incorporating all these different aspects so that it isn’t just pandering to the fans, but it is expanding on the things we’ve been given.
We now know that Mando is on the search for Ahsoka Tano for sure. One thing that we also know is that rebels left off with Sabine and Ahsoka looking for their dear friend and Jedi Ezra Bridger. So, can The Mandalorian give us the location to where Ezra Bridger is?
Just a quick refresher, Ezra was sent into deep space with Thrawn as a part of his plan to stop him. Self-sacrifice, similar to his master, Ezra stopped the tyranny that followed Thrawn around. Those space whales sent them to an unknown location and Ahsoka and Sabine set out to find him.
We still have not gotten any sort of confirmation as to where Ezra is or if they had found him, or even quite possibly given up on looking. But, The Mandalorian could give us his location or have him appear along side Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren.
Maybe we will see if Ezra has been found by the pair in the next episode of The Mandalorian, as he seeks out Ahsoka Tano and some answers about the Child, the Jedi, and what to do with the foundling. Mando has built a strong relationship with him, as seen in Chapter 11, we get a great fatherly vibe from him, so it will be interesting to see how willing he is to part with the Child.
The Mandalorian is not shy with using the characters from Rebels or The Clone Wars and after seeing how well received Bo-Katan was by fans, I am sure they are feeling confident with using these other figures.
Dave Filoni had posted some artwork as his Twitter banner, drawn in the animated style that Rebels is. She is alongside Rex, so this could be a clue to The Mandalorian using some of the familiar characters from Rebels and introducing Mando to some of the Ghost Crew.
Ezra Bridger was growing into a strong Jedi and he had shown a lot of potential in Rebels, so it could be a waste of such a great character for him to never be found. He, alongside Ahsoka Tano, and even Cal Kestis could help train the next generation of Jedi, staying so well hidden not even Luke Skywalker could find them for his academy.
Perhaps they will all help to take back Mandalore and the Jedi could use the planet as a haven from the Empire and the First Order, all while building a new strong relationship with each other. The Mandalorians and Jedi together would be unstoppable.
