Gary Whitta, one the original writers for Star Wars: Rogue One, has revealed via his official Twitter account that he is penning an episode of Star Wars Rebels. Whitta joined director Gareth Edwards on Rogue One back in May 2014. This past January, it was announced that he was departing the production after completing a first draft of the script. However, it looks like he hasn’t left the Star Wars universe entirely.
