Rebels Reconnaissance: “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender.”

It’s hard to believe that Star Wars Rebels is already in its fourth season, as the flurry of new Star Wars content since 2012’s Disney purchase of Lucasfilm can sometimes cause one to forget about the show that established how the two enormous companies would interact. But in many ways, Rebels has been the standard-bearer for this new era of Star Wars as it pioneered the methods in which stories across media would interact and established the precedent for incorporating “Legends” material into canon. And now with the show having an end date that its writers can plan for, the final chapters of Star Wars Rebels seem to be methodically filling in the gaps, tying off loose ends, and bringing a logical conclusion to the series.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Rise of the Old Masters” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the STAR WARS REBELS episode “Rise of the Old Masters.”

If you’re not watching STAR WARS REBELS, you really are missing something special. The premiere movie “Spark of Rebellion” was quite good and the first two episodes, “Droids in Distress” and “Fighter Flight” were highly entertaining forays back into the classic Star Wars Trilogy era. But with this week’s episode, “Rise of the Old Masters,” the stakes have never been higher, the action has never been more intense, and the obstacles facing our heroes have never been so dangerous or so formidable.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Fighter Flight” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for “Fighter Flight.”

Practically since Rebels was first announced, we’ve been told by the show’s creators that Kanan, Hera, Zeb, Sabine, Chopper, and Ezra would be like a family, and we’ve seen plenty of evidence to support that claim.  However, the latest episode, “Fighter Flight,” illustrates that particular dynamic more explicitly and powerfully than previously explored in any previous Rebels media.
