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.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Heroes of Mandalore” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Heroes of Mandalore.”

The fourth season of Star Wars Rebels opens with an episode that packs a punch–albeit one a bit weaker than it might have. At its core, “The Heroes of Mandalore” is about legacy–what one leaves behind–and for Sabine, it’s about the sins of the past infecting the present. Fortunately for the Ghost’s (erstwhile?) demolitions expert, the cost of her bygone indiscretions are somewhat mollified.

Core Worlds Couture: Squadron Goals Products Review and Jewelry Tutorial

Core Worlds Couture With Jay Krebs

Welcome back to another edition of Core Worlds Couture! This week, its a two-for-one-deal: a review and a jewelry tutorial!

A few weeks ago, I was searching for some simple porg merch – namely a badge-pin to add to my ever-growing collection – and I ran across a re-tweeted post in Twitter from @My Squadron Goals. So, I clicked on over to the Etsy store (named Squadron Goals) to purchase the pin, and was greeted by an adorable arrangement of Star Wars goodies: enamel pins, phone charms, stickers, and bumper stickers. The shop owner, Courtney Morelock, was kind enough to agree to send me a few phone charms and pins, in addition to the porg badge-style pin I had purchased. As it turns out, Courtney is also one half of  “Who Talks First,” a podcast she co-hosts with her friend, Solo.

Force and Faith: To Rebel is to be Truly Human

“I rebel.”

Very simply put, this is the most important thing you can come to grips with, and become part of.  And yeah, me, of the first estate by vocation, I will teach this to the bitter end.  There are evil and nefarious forces in the world masquerading as goodness, trying to steal the inherent beauty in each of us.  There are greedy people trying to gain unlimited power through the theft of the beauty each of us possesses.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour.”

The third season of Star Wars Rebels has proven to be an astounding one that somehow surpassed the greatness of a second season that heavily featured Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader and a climactic battle between the two. From the numerous Rogue One connections to the end of Maul, Rebels established its rightful place within the overall saga and continued to show on a weekly basis how crucial the show has become as an avenue for augmenting the established Star Wars canon. The last three episodes I’ll be covering in this post exemplify that importance.

Rogue One: Quiet, Calm, Powerful

No one thinks of “quiet” and “calm” when they think of Star Wars. No one. From the very first blast of the iconic John Williams’ score at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, to the fantastic ships, weapons, thundering confrontations and larger than life characters, it’s a loud saga. Big. Booming. Atlas holding the sphere of the world and tossing it around like a ping-pong ball. But it has occurred to me recently, after my most recent viewing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, that it is in simple, quiet moments and the characters who define them that I find the most power, more than any other Star Wars film.
