Star Wars Rebels – Season 2 Episode 3

“Relics of the Old Republic” After a fairly slow first part Star Wars Rebels more than makes up for it with an exciting conclusion that effectively bridges the gap between the Clone Wars series and this one. After all the set-up last week this episode was mostly action but the characters didn’t get lost in…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 2 Episode 2

“The Lost Commanders” Star Wars Rebels finally begins the second season after giving the premier episode as a preview back in June with the crew of the Ghost going to seek out potential allies for the Rebel Alliance.

Star Wars Rebels – Season 2 Episode 1

“Siege of Lothal” Star Wars Rebels gives audiences a preview of the second season by screening the first episode early. It’s a bit of a shame that we won’t see the rest until later in the year but the preview is appreciated. Season 1 left off with our heroes inducted fully into the Rebel Alliance…

Season 1 Episode 13 – “Rebel Resolve” Woah, only one more episode of Star Wars Rebels left in the season, what a quick run this has had. It does seem like it’s coming back for a second season so that’s a promising one. In almost every sense this episode did feel like the middle point…

Season 1 Episode 12 – “Call to Action” No sooner do I say that The Empire are coming across as a bit toothless does Star Wars Rebels prove me wrong with an episode like this. The opening to this episode was great with Grand Moff Tarkin (Stephen Stanton) arriving in a way reminiscent of Darth…

Season 1 Episode 11 – “Vision of Hope” After another short break Star Wars Rebels is back and fighting fit. This week our heroes look to rescue an exiled senator who might become an ally to their cause. Senator Gall Trayvis had been set up previously as one of their informants but he appears in…

Season 1 Episode 10 – “Idiot’s Array” Star Wars Rebels gives us another look at a famous Original Trilogy character with Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams reprising his role).
