Star Wars Rebels appearances - Rogue One (spoilers if you've not seen Rogue One)
Posted: Posted December 27th, 2016 by Redack
Don't know if anyone who saw Rogue One has also watched Clone Wars/Rebels but there were quite a few easter eggs and references in this movie (i seem to recall there was also some decent consistency with some characters & events within the new EU which was nice to see).
Anyway, first one is the signature ship from Rebels that the main cast uses called "The Ghost" featured in the final space battle (and was also partially visible at the Yavin base during a couple of scenes):
They also built a real working model of Chopper too:
Both of these are confirmed via the Star Wars website to be the Ghost and Chopper.
It's not really clear what happens to these guys as, as far as I know, no one has spotted them in the group of ships that escape at the end before Vader shows up.
There was also an intercomm voice in the Yavin base called for a "General Syndulla" which is either Hera from Rebels or her father from Clone Wars (and Rebels).
I really like that they threw these things in without being all in your face about it (blue milk, 3PO and R2, the cantina duo, etc).
