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””

– 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.

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””

Star Wars Rebels Season Four Premiere Review: “Heroes of Mandalore” Part 2

– 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.

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.

Star Wars Rebels Season Three Finale Review: “Zero Hour”

Star Wars Rebels Zero Hour

Spoiler Review –

While the overall outcome of Star Wars Rebels‘ Season Three Finale, “Zero Hour,” isn’t too surprising, everything in the middle provides plenty of thrills, a surprise or two, reasons to fear the military prowess of Grand Admiral Thrawn and Hera Syndulla, dark hints at some character’s fates, and set up for story threads in what is surely going to be the show’s biggest season yet. In short, “Zero Hour” is a finale that feels epic in size and scope, wrapping up S3 in fantastic fashion. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Season Three Finale Review: “Zero Hour””

Star Wars Rebels Review: “Twin Suns”

Star Wars Rebels Twin Suns

Spoiler Review –

For the past 18 years, Maul has been a surprisingly consistent thorn in several heroes sides, despite being cut in half by a young Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Phantom Menance. The two battled during the Clone Wars after Maul was resurrected, but they both found themselves on much different destinies after the war ended. While Maul appeared at the end of last season, Star Wars Rebels first starting laying hints at the beginning of this season that these two might meet again and suddenly the possibility of a rematch went from Infinities to canon. In “Twin Suns,” there’s a lot of history to live up to by finally pitting these two behemoths against each other again and of course the big question is: does it live up to all the expectations and history? Does Maul survive, somehow, again? The answer to the first question is holy-Force-words-fail-me yes, while the second…read on to find out. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “Twin Suns””

Enjoy the lightheartedness and humorous tone of this Chopper and AP-5 focused episode, “Double Agent Droid,” because it’s the last time you’ll get to such a reprieve for the rest of Star Wars Rebels‘ third season. Continue reading “Star Wars Rebels Review: “Double Agent Droid””
