The end of Star Wars Rebels is only a few weeks away, with the series returning on February 19 and concluding on March 5. Executive producer and creator Dave Filoni took to Twitter to celebrate the final sound mix of the series, effectively ending the series' entire production.

The photo featured an image of the credits, with a stuffed Loth-cat and Filoni's signature hat. He added the caption, "The final sound mix for #StarWarsRebels is complete. The music, the sound design; it's everything I hoped it would be. #FollowTheWhiteLothcat."

The completion of the series if surely bittersweet for Filoni, as he's spent years telling the stories of the Ghost crew. The producer's previous series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, was canceled by Adult Swim without Filoni being able to give the show an organic ending.

Filoni's future is uncertain, as no new animated series has been announced, yet with a live-action Star Wars series coming to Disney's streaming service in the future, the director could lend his talents to a new medium. Some fans have even questioned if Filoni will make an even bigger jump and potentially helm a feature-length live-action film.

Much like Filoni, the Ghost crew's future is uncertain, as the series takes place before the original Star Wars and none of our heroes were featured in that original saga.

The ship's captain, Hera Syndulla, has earned herself a few appearances that confirm she survives past the end of this animated series. In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, audiences heard her name announced in a hangar prior to the Battle of Scarif. We also saw the Ghost participate in the battle, yet who composed its crew was unknown.

Additionally, a comic that focused on Hera depicted the hero interacting with Leia and Han on Hoth, confirming she survived at least past the events of the first movie.

Does this mean we could see the character in a future live-action movie?

"Of course! Who knows, if she can serve the narrative, it would be awesome. It would be great to see her on film and it was incredible to see Saw Gerrera come to life," actress Vanessa Marshall shared with ComicBookMovie of Hera. "I loved Saw in the Alderaan arcs in The Clone Wars and was so thrilled they took a character from the animated series and transitioned him into live-action to play such a pivotal role. If they did that with Hera, that would be magnificent but it's all about what serves the narrative and not necessarily just let's give Hera a cameo. I bow down to the overall journey at hand and I really can't wait for the movie [The Last Jedi] to come out in December and I'm so excited. That's really what's keeping me going."

Tune in to the return of Star Wars Rebels on Monday, February 19 at 9:00 PM ET on Disney XD.
