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.

Book Review — Rebel Rising

This review of Star Wars: Rebel Rising contains minor spoilers.

There’s a sense of wonder, and dread, as you make your way through the opening chapters of Beth Revis‘ finely crafted and exquisitely paced story of Jyn Erso that plays out through the pages of Star Wars: Rebel Rising.

The wonder is the amazing facet of seeing how Jyn Erso became the woman that we, as Star Wars fans, experienced on the silver screen amid the kinetic action and brisk storytelling of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The dread is knowing that her fate is sealed and that her life, with so much potential and promise, was cut short. Yet, more importantly, its knowing that Erso as a character is finite. This makes Revis’ prequel-style account of Erso so engaging and, in fact, so dramatic.

Cassian Andor and Sinjir Rath Velus – Good Guys Doing Bad Things

Cassian Andor

With Chuck Wendig’s Empire’s End arriving this month, I decided to review Aftermath and Aftermath: Life Debt. After my first read, I found these post-Return of the Jedi stories entertaining and engaging. For one, getting some details on how the galaxy evolved after the death of the Emperor and Darth Vader was fascinating. The new canon provides little description of this era. Therefore, I was trying to read these stories just a little closer this time around. One of the things I paid extra attention to was the character of Sinjir Rath Velus, the former Imperial loyalty officer. One aspect of Sinjir’s character struck me: he was willing to do bad for the greater good. This reminded me of Cassian Andor, who confessed to Jyn Erso that he had done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. This raises the question, where does the Rebellion draw the line?

Rogue One: Bail Organa – A Moment of Reflection

By now, there has been so much coverage in ways of analysis on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Honestly, what’s left to talk about? The media, from news-sites to fan-sites, and every corner of the internet has turned this first Star Wars standalone film inside-out, and dissected it from every angle possible. But here, at Coffee with Kenobi, we do our best (by tradition) to take a closer look at even the tiniest of details, through what’s been noted as a critical lens. We do this in hopes to shine some light on possible new perspectives and ideas. Hopefully, I’ll be somewhat successful with what I’m bringing to the table today.
