What happened to Kanan Jarrus?

Kanan Jarrus died in the 10th Episode of the 4th Season in Rebels by sacrificing his life to save the lives of Hera and other Ghost crew members.

The shattering episode started with Hera in Imperial captivity and saw Kanan Jarrus, Sabine and Ezra attempt to break her out.

Kanan Jarrus successfully rescued Hera and then planned to rendezvous with Sabine and Ezra at the depot of Imperial Fuel on Lothal.

On the other hand, Sabine and Ezra planned to load Hera onto their stolen gunship. They were using a fuel pod as a makeshift landing pad which was shot by the pursuing Imperials and ruptured.

Kanan Jarrus instantly used force to save the lives of his companions. Meanwhile, he got engulfed in the explosion and proved himself to be a true Jedi Knight in the process.

This heart-touching emotional scene made everybody cry. The way Kanan thought of his friends without even thinking about his own life once was commendable. His sacrifice made everybody fall in love with him.

Kanan Jarrus, whose true name is Caleb Dume, is a major figure in the anime series “Star Wars Rebels.” He is a Jedi Knight who has lived to tell of Order 66, the Emperor’s order to wipe out all Jedi.

Even though Kanan had never finished his own Jedi training, he took the Force-sensitive street kid under his wing when the Ghost crew encountered Ezra Bridger on Lothal and took him under his wing.

Throughout the Galactic Civil War, the Ghost crew, led by Kanan Jarrus as Spectre-1, consistently proved to be a formidable thorn in the side of the Empire.

Their daring and resourceful actions against Imperial forces garnered the attention of not only Darth Vader but also the brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Kanan, along with Ezra and the other Spectres, formed a skilled and tenacious team that disrupted Imperial operations, stole vital intelligence, and aided the burgeoning rebellion.

Kanan’s leadership and Jedi abilities, coupled with the diverse skills of the rest of the Spectres, made them a significant force for change in the galaxy, embodying the resilience of those who dared to stand against the Empire’s tyranny.

Their actions served as a beacon of hope for those who yearned for freedom and justice amid a galaxy engulfed in darkness.

Who else is returning in the Ghost crew in Rebels?

Kanan might not be making a comeback in Ahsoka, but other Ghost crew members and other Rebels characters will make appearances in the new show.

Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren, played by recent additions Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Natasha Liu Bordizzo, respectively, are expected to play significant roles in the series, as evidenced by the many trailers and promotional materials.

After a fleeting background cameo in Rogue One, the cranky droid C1-10P (also known as Chopper) is now making a second live-action debut.

Although Ezra Bridger, now played by Eman Esfandi, will also feature in the series, when Ahsoka starts, the young Jedi is gone due to the events of the Rebels finale.

Zeb Orrelios is the final survivor of the original Ghost team. Although it is unknown at this point whether he will show up in Ahsoka, the character did make his live-action debut in season three of The Mandalorian, so he is unquestionably existent in the current canon.

In addition to the primary Ghost crew, several Rebels characters, including Hera and Kanan’s son, Jacen Syndulla, Ryder Azadi (played by Clancy Brown again), Captain Rex, and Grand Admiral Thrawn will be there to make their live-action debuts in the Ghost crew members in Ahsoka.
