I feel more excited by this trailer than I am for Episode 8, next Winter. This is going to be a hell of a 3rd season! Kenobi is back, which I’d imagine would be the season finale, and we get to see Thrawn get physical. Remember that you can watch the episodes earlier on DisneyXD if you don’t want to wait for the normal “broadcast” time.
This weeks episode, have you seen it? You can wait until it is air this evening or head over to DisneyX/D to watch it now [you must have access to a cable/satellite account to watch]. The mid-season finale is all sorts of awesome. As it stands, the only thing I will give aways is that Tom Baker’s [my “Doctor”] Bendu makes an appearance.
If you’ve never given the show a chance, please do. It has a Star Wars vibe to it, and I am not just saying that because of my personal positive policy. I either love a thing, and all of it’s ups and downs, or I never mention it. Keep in mind it is a children’s show, and knowing that… this episode will probably surprise you.
I am not one of those detractors of the series who whines about the kid friendly content. The series airs on DISNEY X/D, a children’s network. There has been some silly moments and outright comedic ones this season. The “Inside Man” has very little light hearted humor. It is a dark episode that should make my friends on the Force Center Podcast and Collider’s Jedi Council pretty happy ( some of the aforementioned whiners😁). I have nothing but love for those folks.
This week we get to meet the Mandalorians who work for the Empire. We also get to see more character development for Sabine. Dave Filoni has really honed his storytelling skills and given us an absolutely wonderful third season, so far. I am not someone who get’s caught up in the whole “This isn’t my Star Wars” thing. I can take enjoyment in watching Darth Maul’s machinations just as much as laughing at Hondo’s crazy schemes. From Puffer Pigs to James Earl Jones’ reprisal of Darth Vader, this show is a great escape for my Wife and I. If you haven’t already checked it out, then what are you waiting for?
This week’s episode Star Wars Rebels is up on Disney XD’s App and Website. While it is still a character balance centered around Ezra, this one focuses on Hera. We learn a bit more about her past, and even a nugget about Chopper. We also learn that Thrawn is everything we wanted him to be, and More.
So Season Three of Star Wars Rebels is coming. Three of the most stand out things that I am most excited for are A blind Jedi Master Kannan, The Bendu, and Grand Admiral Thrawn! Those are my top three but there are so many more things that have my attention in the latest trailer. This is a show that was targeted at children and has its childish moments, I still can appreciate them because they are a respite from the dramatic tension that is almost always present in Star Wars. It seems to have had quite a growth spurt and good on Disney for continuing the integrity of the Star Wars brand. I am pretty sure that this will be the final season for this show but that is OK. There are always more tales to tell and you never know when somebody you know, and love, will pop into those new stories.
I know I shared this via social media earlier today but holy Midi-chlorians, this is both awesome and epic. It almost seems as they are going more heavily into the direction of fantasy, even to the point of dancing on the edge of new “Canon” and a “Legends” style story. This is going so much more darker and intense that I can’t see the reasons for keeping it on DisneyXD. Anyhow, this second half of the second season will be a mind-blowing ride, and we all have tickets for it 🙂
I am glad to be getting back to some fun subjects!
Until next time… Live Long, Prosper and May the Force be with You 🖖
How AWESOME does this show look? You don’t have to answer that question because I already know. There are classic elements, prequel elements, and most importantly Ralph McQuarrie elements to the show. Without Ralph Angus McQuarrie, I dare say, the Star Wars we all know and love could have never existed. It could just be a footnote or some cult favorite like THX1138. They can only do so much with the story for the show without infringing on canon but they seem to be handling it in stellar fashion. Star Wars: Rebels comes to Disney 😄 this October. If you are like me, without cable or satellite, you’ll find more creative methods of obtaining access to this show.
