Rebels Reconnaissance: “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour.”

The third season of Star Wars Rebels has proven to be an astounding one that somehow surpassed the greatness of a second season that heavily featured Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader and a climactic battle between the two. From the numerous Rogue One connections to the end of Maul, Rebels established its rightful place within the overall saga and continued to show on a weekly basis how crucial the show has become as an avenue for augmenting the established Star Wars canon. The last three episodes I’ll be covering in this post exemplify that importance.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Legacy of Mandalore,” “Through Imperial Eyes,” and “Secret Cargo” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “Legacy of Mandalore,” “Through Imperial Eyes,” and “Secret Cargo.”

“Legacy of Mandalore” serves as a direct follow-up to the excellent “Trials of the Darksaber” and continues the trend of outstanding character-driven episodes we’ve seen in this third season of Star Wars Rebels. Again taking center stage, Sabine Wren returns to her homeworld of Krownest to confront her mother and reveal that she now wields the legendary Darksaber. It’s a noble attempt at reconciliation for the Wrens as a family and the Mandalorians as a people, but it feels like a fool’s errand just the same.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Trials of the Darksaber” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Trials of the Darksaber.”

It wasn’t really that long ago that Star Wars Rebels was seen as a show that underserved its female characters at the expense of focusing on Ezra, an adolescent male and the character closest to the show’s viewing demographic. But as time went on, the doubters were proven wrong and those who preached patience were rewarded with episodes like “Blood Sisters,” a plethora of Ahsoka Tano-centric episodes (most notably “Twilight of the Apprentice”), and this season’s “Hera’s Heroes.” Now, “Trials of the Darksaber” shifts the paradigm even further by suggesting that Sabine Wren might have a more important destiny than Ezra Bridger.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Warhead” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Warhead.”

After two and a half seasons, Star Wars Rebels has earned the benefit of the doubt in terms of where it’s going regarding its various story arcs, and it is with this grace that one should view this week’s episode, “Warhead.” According to the episode’s trivia gallery on starwars.com, “Warhead” was originally planned as the B-story portion of next week’s “Trials of the Darksaber” and frankly it feels like it never quite evolved past that stage. It’s a fun story wherein Zeb, Chopper, and AP-5 take center stage, but it just seems small–until the end.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Ghosts of Geonosis” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Ghost of Geonosis.”

Since Lucasfilm’s announcement regarding Star Wars canon on April 25, 2014, the status of Star Wars Rebels as a major part of that canon has never been in doubt. In fact, the first major addition to the canon was the novel A New Dawna novel by John Jackson Miller that serves as a direct prequel to Rebels and is a book I highly recommend. And throughout its run, Star Wars Rebels has been the connective tissue that has augmented Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the pre-existing film series. But with the release of Rogue One, Rebels has achieved a new level of esteem due to that film’s inclusion of the Ghost, Chopper, and “General Syndulla.”

Book Review: Star Wars Rogue One: Rebel Dossier

If you’re anything like me, the first thing you want to do after you’ve seen an amazing movie is immerse yourself in that world. Watch everything, read everything, devour everything. I go through that cycle with each new Star Wars film, and with Rogue One it’s no different. I love the movie, so I want to soak in all there is to know. The best way to do that is to read! Fortunately, there’s no shortage of Star Wars related books.

One of the tie-ins to Rogue One is Star Wars Rogue One: Rebel Dossier by Jason Fry. While intended for a younger audience (ages 9-12), Rebel Dossier can be appreciated by any Star Wars fan of any age. It’s a fast read, but it’s also a resource you can revisit time and again. I plan on seeing Rogue One again (naturally), and I always find reference materials like this only enrich my subsequent viewings.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

The first ever standalone Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, debuted on December 16th, and with it comes a unique set of circumstances. At long last, the story of how the Rebellion came into possession of the Death Star plans has come into the canon of Star Wars‘ sometimes daunting mythology, and the revelation of this is unlike anything we’ve seen before on screen from a galaxy far, far away. The ramifications this film will have on future Star Wars storytelling will be intricate and, most likely, long lasting.
