Star Wars Rebels returns for the fourth and final season today; this is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, audiences will be able to experience all new episodes of this beautiful addition to the Star Wars mythos. Conversely, knowing that this will be the final season can’t help but bring about a twinge of melancholy. Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren, Zeb Orrelios, and Chopper are forever ensconced into the lore, and the Star Wars universe is better because of them. This is precisely why we deserve a proper ending to their story. The first two episodes begin that journey in spectacular fashion. Here are a few talking points to add to the conversation.
Mild spoilers to follow: be sure to watch the Season Premiere before continuing below.

Traditionally, when video games bridge the gap to other genres, the results are mixed, and often polarizing. For every Resident Evil: Retribution, there is a Super Mario Bros. to muddy the proverbial waters. Fortunately, Star Wars continues to find new ways to bring storytelling and mythmaking to another … ahem … level. Christie Golden’s Inferno Squad is based on a video game series set in the Star Wars universe, but unlike its predecessors, offers storytelling that functions on its own, and enriches the characters that will appear in the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Dan Z is joined by the daily content manager of Jedi News, program director of the Jedi News Network, and the co-host of Radio 1138, & Take Cover, Mark Newbold, and the host of The Cantina Cast, Mike Rondeau. They start the show debating the pros and cons of skipping pre-The Last Jedi marketing. Tom has news, and in the Coffee Chat, they ponder what has happened to Rogue One in current Star Wars conversation. This the podcast you’re looking for!

KeepMe Group has teamed up with LUCASFILM and Disney to create The Ultimate Star Wars Collectors Gift – a range of Official Star Wars Fragrances boxed in beautifully designed packaging. The Star Wars fragrance collection includes six unique scents representing the light and dark side of the Force. Amazing, right!?
In the development of this, KeepMe Group has focused on creating a range of products that are true to Star Wars fans from many walks of life. The team, based in the UK, states these items have been created by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans, and, with the attention to detail on the packaging, it’s evident. The hardcore fan and collectors will truly appreciate the attention to detail with references to characters (using unique designs that can ONLY be found in this collection and are artistic and beautiful) It truly is a cool product, combining high-quality Eau de Parfum fragrances with high-end packaging finishes. Basically, it appeals to a much more diverse audience than one might originally expect.
