Star Wars Rebels Review: “Rebel Assault”

Star Wars Rebels Rebel Assault

– Spoiler Review –

“Rebel Assault,” the mid-season finale for Star Wars Rebels’ final season, is one of the series’ most thrilling, tense episodes to date and an amazing showcase of the multi-talented Space Mom of the year, Hera Syndulla. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “Rebel Assault””

Star Wars Rebels Review: “Kindred” & “Crawler Commandeers”

– Spoiler Review –

I’ve decided to do one review for the double episodes they’ve been airing each night for Star Wars Rebels this season, whether they are billed as a two-parter or not, so below you’ll find reviews for “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers,” which aired together. For “Kindred,” it’s quite the start to the hour, finally giving fans something they’ve been asking for, along with plenty of action and more hints at the endgame, while “Crawler Commandeers” is the fun before the storm episode we’ll need before next week’s midseason finale. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “Kindred” & “Crawler Commandeers””

Star Wars Rebels Review: “Flight of the Defender”

Star Wars Rebels Flight of the Defende

– Spoiler Review –

Star Wars Rebels‘ “Flight of the Defender” has plenty of exciting action with the titular TIE, but a tease for the show’s endgame is what will stick with viewers for a very long time. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “Flight of the Defender””

Star Wars Rebels Review: “The Occupation”

Star Wars Rebels The Occupation

– Spoiler Review –

Star Wars Rebels has slowly gone darker over the years and “The Occupation” brings that home both literally a figuratively, forever altering the planet Lothal in unexpected, emotional, and compelling ways. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “The Occupation””

Star Wars Rebels Review: “In the Name of the Rebellion”

Star Wars Rebels In the Name of the Rebellion

– Spoiler Review –

Star Wars Rebels‘ final season gets another high octane hour with, “In the Name of the Rebellion,” which doesn’t manage to upstage the premiere but matches it in nearly every way possible, while deepening the series’ connective tissue with Rogue One. If this is the level they’ll maintain all season, we’re in for quite the final treat. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “In the Name of the Rebellion””

– Spoiler Review –

This review focuses mainly on Part 2 of the Star Wars Rebels’ final season premiere episode, “Heroes of Mandalore,” but it also sums up my feelings on the entire episode, feelings that have changed in both pluses and minuses since seeing only the first half at April’s Celebration Orlando. The whole review will tell you one thing though: why I’d say this is the best premiere episode of the series.

Premiering first at the Fan Expo in Canada, the second trailer for Star Wars Rebels‘ fourth and final season has been unleashed to the masses, so make sure to check it out now! Be prepared to collapse into a heaping pile of emotions and excitement, as this trailer teases plenty of epic events to come, like the fight for Lothal, Kanera moments, Sabine’s fight for Mandalore, Rukh’s devious mission against the Ghost crew, and of course what happens to the Jedi characters. If you’re like me and curious about the answers, you won’t have to wait too much longer, as the season premieres on October 16! More thoughts, and how some of the trailer connects to what I’ve already seen at Celebration Orlando, below!

Star Wars Rebels Final Season Panel and Trailer Impressions (SWCO 2017)

The rumors have been swirling for awhile and I had my hopes there’d at least be a season 5 of Star Wars Rebels, but the packed and philosophical Rebels panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 revealed the upcoming season 4 would be the series’ last. From Filoni’s heartfelt goodbye to the show, his promise of something darker and unexpected from the final season, a haunting trailer, and a premiere episode that’ll end with your tears, Rebels season 4 looks to hurdle us through its final hours in its biggest season yet.

Star Wars Rebels Season Four Premiere Review: “Heroes of Mandalore” Part 1 (SWCO 2017)

Star Wars Rebels Heroes of Mandalore Part 1

Spoiler Review –

While I’ll have a write up about the rest of the panel soon (update: it’s here), one thing was clear from both the season 4 trailer and what the cast/crew talked about during it: Star Wars Rebels‘ final season would be both darker and unlike the previous seasons in many ways. After having seen the first part of the season 4 premiere episode, “Heroes of Mandalore,” I can safely say dark is only the beginning, as this first part ends on such an emotional downer it brought the entire viewing room to silence, and tears certainly from me. Now, it being darker doesn’t mean this isn’t still the show we’ve all come to know and love over the past three seasons or that it isn’t good, in fact, it’s an excellent showcase of how far this show has come with both its characters (the important part) and plots. And if this is only from the first half of the opening episode, it’ll be well worth your wait to see it and its second half until it premieres in the fall.

Dave Filoni: Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates Panel Impressions (SWCO 2017)

Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo for Animated Origins and Unexpected FatesAs has been the custom over the past two celebrations, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo reveal inside looks at characters and unreleased behind-the-scenes details and new footage from the animated shows The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Unlike The Untold Clone Wars or Ahsoka’s Untold Tales, Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates wasn’t nearly as revealing, though there were teases for what’s to come on Rebels‘ 4th season (including Ahsoka returning!) and a great clip from TCW featuring Boba Fett and Cad Bane, but Filoni and Hidalgo are such a joy to listen to talking about Star Wars, the panel is always a blast no matter how much they give away.
