Star Wars Rebels: Rebels Recon for “The Antilles Extraction”


**SPOILERS** for the Star Wars Rebels episode “The Antilles Extraction.”

After receiving a tip from Fulcrum that some Imperial cadets wish to join the Rebellion, Sabine goes on a solo undercover mission to locate and extract the defectors. Among the cadets is a pilot, Wedge Antilles — a name very familiar to Star Wars fans — whose presence brings us ever closer to the events of A New Hope. The escape doesn’t go entirely as planned, but Sabine and the cadets receive aid from an unexpected source within the Empire.

Classic Trilogy Perspective, Part 1: A New Hope – The Princess, The Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy


Classic Trilogy Perspective, Part 1:
A New Hope – The Princess, The Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy

The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm BoyOn September 22, 2015, three original adaptations of the classic trilogy were released: Star Wars: A New Hope — The Princess, The Scoundrel, and The Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back — So You Want to Be a Jedi by Adam Gidwitz, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi — Beware the Power of the Dark Side! by Tom Angleberger.  Now that these books have been in circulation for almost a year, I felt it was time to take an exploration through each one from a Star Wars canon perspective, asking the following questions:

(1) What scenes or elements have been added to the narrative we know from the film?
(2) What knowledge from other canon narratives are part of this tale?
(3) How has this book influenced or altered our understanding of the film?

This month, I will focus on Star Wars: A New Hope — The Princess, The Scoundrel, and The Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken.

Melinda’s Brew: The ABCs of Star Wars (5)

Melinda's Brew

To say I’ve been walking around feeling like a giddy schoolgirl is … well, an understatement. 🙂 With just a tad bit more than 100 days to go [see this blog’s end for the exact number] until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” debuts in theaters around the country, that is exactly how I feel! 🙂 And why not? All of us were under the impression that “Revenge of the Sith” would be the last feature film to be released that centered on the galaxy far, far away. It wasn’t all that long ago that we learned that wasn’t to be the case, and now we have something tangible to which to look forward! 🙂 New characters. New environments. New multi-layered stories. I can’t wait!
