Dave Filoni will be attending all four days of Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, but that’s not because he has nothing to do. Far from it. The co-creator, supervising director and executive producer of “Star Wars Rebels” is still in the midst of creating that show’s second season. But the light is visible at the end of the tunnel.
“The finale scripts just came in, so I’ve been planning how the end of it is going to go,” Filoni said in a recent phone conversation. “But it’s always working on the whole thing at one time, from beginning to end. What’s nice is that you can see the whole thing now and make plans on episodes still in production to make things more worthwhile.”

Production on the second season is still underway, but the show’s season premiere is finished and ready for presentation. Filoni will be giving fans a screening of the episode along with a repeat showing of the two-part first season finale during the convention. And he has plans for a whole bunch of surprises during the show’s panel with members of the cast on Saturday morning.
