2. Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren

At the end of Star Wars: Rebels, we see Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren preparing to go find Ezra Bridger together. The series has a fairly open-ended finale that indirectly ties into The Mandalorian. Sabine is a Mandalorian and former wielder of the legendary Darksaber.

I predicted that since Ahsoka will be in season two of The Mandalorian, we may also see Sabine. But if not, it would be awesome to see one or both of these characters at the center of their own series about the search for Ezra. It would fill in some narrative gaps, as well as give more screen time to a top-five all-time Star Wars character in Ahsoka.

1. Rey

This is the least likely, but the most exciting option is a show about Rey Skywalker. The end of The Rise of Skywalker doesn’t necessarily tie a neat knot on Rey’s overall storyline. She brings Luke and Leia’s lightsabers to Tatooine and ignites her own, newly-made saber.

We know that Luke wasn’t going to be the last Jedi, so what do Jedi look like with peace in the galaxy? Are they completely different in everything but name? For a universe as expansive as Star Wars, it isn’t likely that the story will just end at a certain point. We didn’t get to see Luke’s Jedi Academy, but could we see Rey’s? It would be fitting for this show and an enticing direction for it to go.
