Rebels Follows New Characters With Unknown Fates
While part of the appeal of The Clone Wars was getting to see more of the prequel trilogy characters, I for one didn’t feel all that much suspense. Whenever Anakin, Obi-Wan, or Yoda would end up in trouble, I just couldn’t worry about them. The same goes for Mace Windu and the Jedi guaranteed to survive until Revenge of the Sith, as well as characters like Tarkin, General Grievous, and of course Palpatine. Admittedly, how Maul returned was a surprise, but we mostly knew where major characters would end up.
