STAR WARS REBELS Review – “The Lost Commanders”

This review contains spoilers. From the moment Ahsoka set foot aboard the Ghost at the end of Star Wars Rebels‘ previous season, I have been nervous about characters and stories leftover from The Clone Wars getting in the way of what Rebels does best. This trepidation was allayed somewhat when the fantastic Season Two opener, “The Siege of Lothal”, managed … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Review – “The Lost Commanders”

STAR WARS REBELS Primer – Captain Rex and the Clone Troopers

RECOMMENDED VIEWING: Like last time, I’m going to start off by recommending one story arc from The Clone Wars to serve as an introduction to these characters before we meet them in Rebels. The episodes I’m recommending (episodes 1-4 of Season Six) may seem counter-intuitive because Captain Rex is barely featured in them, but I … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Primer – Captain Rex and the Clone Troopers

D23: Excitement, Confusion, and Disappointment from Disney Live Action (With Thoughts on STAR WARS Land)

The Walt Disney Studios live action panel at the 2015 D23 Expo was something of a mess.

Podcast: Discussing STAR WARS Celebration (and More) with Castle to Castle

After loudly complaining about the absurdity of having a fake holiday predicated on a bad pun, it looks like I too am posting Star Wars content on “Star Wars Day.” It’s unavoidable, it seems. Silly holiday or not, I had a lot of fun recording this podcast. A few weeks ago I attended Star Wars Celebration … Continue reading Podcast: Discussing STAR WARS Celebration (and More) with Castle to Castle

STAR WARS REBELS Review – “The Siege of Lothal” (Season Two Premier)

After the first season of Star Wars Rebels ended by blowing up the series’ status quo I’ve been looking forward to the next season with equal parts excitement and trepidation. I’ve explained all this at length, twice actually, and so going in to the Season Two premier tonight at Star Wars Celebration, I wasn’t sure … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Review – “The Siege of Lothal” (Season Two Premier)

STAR WARS REBELS Review – “Fire Across the Galaxy”

Note: This review contains SPOILERS So that’s it, Season One of Star Wars Rebels has come to a close, and all things considered they had a pretty spectacular first season.
