Rebels Reconnaissance: “In the Name of the Rebellion” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “In the Name of the Rebellion.”

With a return to the sequel trilogy era in the form of The Last Jedi on the horizon, it becomes only natural to wonder about the place of Rogue One (a standalone story) in the cultural zeitgeist. In many ways, this film–that was highly successful on a number of fronts–has essentially slipped from the public’s consciousness. But with “In the Name of the Rebellion,” this week’s episode of Star Wars Rebels, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gets a powerful burst of relevance.

The Death Star Attack Briefing Room

Death Star Briefing Room - Feature Image

Recently, I was home from work without anything planned. I decided to watch Return of the Jedi because it had been a while since I just sat down and watched it. One of the thing that always impressed me about Star Wars films was how much detail and story inhabits each scene. One example of this is the briefing room scene for the attack on the second Death Star. This well-designed scene includes character development, exposition, world building, and consequences in three carefully crafted minutes of the film. Read more

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.

What’s in a Name? What’s in a Man?

Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy came to a thrilling conclusion this past week (February 21st) with Empire’s End.  The novel completes the story of a group of all new characters following the Battle of Endor, and the destruction of the second Death Star. One of those characters in particular had the largest, and most important arcs of  note: Sinjir Rath Velus. From where we meet Sinjir in Aftermath to where we leave him in Empire’s End, his growth and subversion of several tropes is extremely satisfying.
