Did the Kiners’ Star Wars Rebels “mix-tape” give away a huge spoiler?

Jedi Bibliothek tracked down a track list for the series

Obvious-but-heavy spoilers for Star Wars Rebels ahead…

The Case

Yesterday, Florian (a.k.a. @JediBibliothek, @germanjedi) posted a Twitter link to Ines’ (@__Mara_Jade_) piece regarding some important Star Wars Rebels info:

https://twitter.com/germanjedi/status/959132747523678208

Ines wrote (translated via Google):

Star Wars Rebels composer Kevin Kiner’s Web site has released some of the series’ soundtrack titles, at least some of which may relate to the final episodes of season four, which have not yet been aired. Among them is also the track title “Kanan’s End Credits”, which indicates the death of the Jedi. Already in the titles and contents of the episodes “Jedi Night” and “DUME” relatively clear indications of Kanan’s demise could be found.

Ines continued, adding, “Star Wars is now infamous for its spoiler-containing track lists. As early as 1999, the soundtrack to The Phantom Menace with the track title ‘Qui-Gon’s Noble End’ revealed before the theatrical release that the Jedi master, played by Liam Neeson, would not survive the film.”

The Updates

Then, throughout the day, the site updated the original post (again, via Google translate):

Update from 02.02.2018, 11:23
Meanwhile the titles “Kanan’s End Credits”, “Hera at the Wall” and “Sabine sees Ezra” have been removed from the website… but you still get to the MP3s.

Update from 02.02.2018, 10:37
The original message originally said that the site belonged to the Rebels composer Kevin Kiner, but that it’s owned by Sean and Dean Kiner.

Update from 02.02.2018, 00:12
On Reddit a user has found out that the episodes number is hidden in the links of most tracks. Most of the tracks are music from episodes that have already been released. Only the tracks “Kanan’s End Credits” and “Sabine Sees Ezra” are safe from future episodes. With “Hera at the Wall” the assignment is unclear, but since the above tracks tend to be newer, it can be assumed that this track was also composed for the newer episodes. We have supplemented for you in the list below, from which episodes the tracks originate.

Okay, so, the veracity of all of this–as with ANY leak or spoiler–remains tenuous until air (and the addition of “On Reddit…” always seems to put distance between things).

However, the folks at Jedi Bibliothek are very consistent–I trust them–and I keep a weather eye on that feed. Logic also dictates this all makes sense in a happy accident kind of way (at least for fans). None of it is Earth-shattering, of course. Many have speculated as to Kanan’s fate. But, obviously, the true nature of the finale remains to be seen.

I can’t wait…

The List

So, in the meantime, here’s the listing, augmented with notes by Ines:

  • Sabine Sees Ezra (4×15 “Family Reunion and Farewell – Part 1“)
  • Hera at the Wall (Assignment unclear)
  • Kanan’s End Credits (4×13 “A World Between Worlds”)
  • Sabine Suite (3×15 Trials of the Darksaber”)
  • Where the Sun Sails and the Moon Walks (Assignment unclear, probably an unused track from the finale of the season 2)
  • Breaking Through the Blockade (3×21-22 “Zero Hour”)
  • Thrawn’s True Face (3×10 “An Inside Man”)
  • Thrawn’s Web (3×05 “Hera’s Heroes”)

  • Tech Witch (2×05 „Always Two There Are”)
  • Imperials Incoming (2×11 “Legacy“)
  • Investigating the Projects (2×10 “The Future of the Force”)
  • Holocall with Kallus (2×09 “Stealth Strike”)
  • Lasat Ritual (2×14 “Legends of the Lasat”)
  • Long Fall (2×07 “Wings of the Master”)
