Time Travel Might Not Be A Big Part Of Other Star Wars Movies/TV Shows

Time travel is used often in other science fiction properties, but the Star Wars universe never used it until now. The concept was finally used in the finale of the TV show Star Wars Rebels. 

Bear in mind, spoilers for Star Rebels, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi will be discussed in this article. Read at your own discretion. 

Anyway in the last episode of Star Wars Rebels, we saw main character Ezra Bridger somewhat travel back to the past using the Force to save Ahsoka.

After seeing that, many people speculated if time travel could get added to future Star Wars films and TV shows.

Sadly though, Star Wars Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni, confirmed in a new interview with Cinemablend that time travel might not appear frequently in other movies and TV shows. You can read his comments on the topic down below. 

"No, I hope not. I mean, because this is important for this particular story, and I think we'd have to be very careful about how it would be used otherwise. It's why we destroy the temple in the episode. It's mainly a place that people would go to see the future and the past. It's not such an active place and Ahsoka, for her part when she's pulled out of that moment, is placed back in that same timeline and not very long after she left it. So again, she's smart enough to know that she cannot go back with Ezra, so there is not this big time travel thing. She knows she has to remain a part of her world and her timeline."

That said, his comments do not 100 percent rule out that another writer might add time travel in the future.

I'm sure there can be alternate timelines out there where Han Solo and Luke Skywalker do not die at the end of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi respectively if time travel were to be added in the movies.

Personally, I don't mind time travel storylines because it makes plots unpredictable and less linear. However, using it in the Star Wars universe could be confusing if it retcons movies and events that happened in the past...
