Captain Rex of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels may not be the soldier in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Steven Melching clarifies his previous “confirmation”, he said:

“Friends, please allow me to clarify my provocative and badly-worded tweet from earlier today. 1/….When Rex was redesigned for his appearance in S2 of REBELS, many people saw a similarity to “Nik Sant” in ROTJ. 2/…. I didn’t notice the resemblance until fans pointed it out after the release of the S2 trailer. 3/…Many on the crew found the resemblance amusing too, but AFAIK it was not an intentional design choice. 4/…In each season most character models change. As the Ghost crew grows closer to the larger Rebellion, their costumes often reflect that. 5/…Rex is clearly wearing some costume pieces that resemble the Rebel Commandos from ROTJ. As a soldier, this makes sense. 6/ So are Rex and Nik Sant one-and-the-same? Truthfully, I do not know the answer. I wish I had made that clear originally. 7/”
