We are now 10 episodes into Star Wars Rebels and it has yet to let me down. The work of the writers and actors is not in vain, they have successfully kept me, as well as a lot of you, tuning in each week. I have to admit, after meeting a lot of the cast at Star Wars Weekends last year, it has been a blast to see the fruit of their labors on the screen. After watching the episodes to date, I can see why they were all so excited to be involved.
The audio and effects team have done a tremendous job as well! The sound effects truly have given it an original trilogy feel. The TIE Fighters soaring around take me back to the first time I saw Luke and the rest of the Rebels attack the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin. I will not get started on Kevin Kiner’s soundtrack. I will have to do a whole blog alone about the excellence of his scores for not only Rebels but The Clone Wars as well. All I will say about this subject is that Kiner’s music brings completion to each episode in the same way each John Williams piece brings completion to the movies.
Yet even though all these pieces fit together and help mesh Rebels with our beloved Saga, let’s not overlook the deliberate connections being made to the movies. I am speaking of the guest cameos.
