- "As for me, I used to think that Ezra was counting on me to protect Lothal, the planet and the people he cared for so much. But one day, I realized there was more to it. There was something else I was meant to do. Ezra's out there somewhere, and it's time to bring him home."
- ―Sabine Wren
The search for Ezra was a mission undertaken by the Mandalorian Spectre Sabine Wren and former Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano to find Ezra Bridger, a Padawan and friend of theirs. Years earlier during the Liberation of Lothal, Bridger had summoned a pod of purrgil to defeat the Seventh Fleet, and, after those starships were dealt with, the animals attacked the Star Destroyer Chimaera, pulling it, Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Bridger away into hyperspace to deep space. During his absence, Wren had initially thought Bridger had wanted her to protect his homeworld of Lothal, but she eventually realized he wanted her to find him. The mission began five years after Tano's promise to Bridger that she would find him when she got back during their time in the World Between Worlds, when Tano led Wren on the search to find the still-living Bridger and bring him home to Lothal aboard their T-6 shuttle.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "So, how soon can we expect the Sabine Wren Ahsoka Tano show, is my question."
- ―Donald Faison
The search for Ezra first appeared in the series finale of Star Wars Rebels, "Family Reunion – and Farewell". It was later identified in the reference book Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy. One year after the Rebels finale, executive producer Dave Filoni tweeted out an image of Sabine Wren and Ahsoka Tano during their search.

- ↑ The epilogue of "Family Reunion – and Farewell" occurs after the end of the Galactic Civil War, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 5 ABY, so the epilogue must take place during or after that year. The Liberation of Lothal occurs prior to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY, so it must take place during or prior to that year. The liberation takes place between "Wolves and a Door" and "Family Reunion – and Farewell"'s epilogue, which Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy establishes there is a five-year gap between. Therefore, the epilogue must take place in 5 ABY.
