Rebels Reconnaissance: “Rebel Assault” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Rebel Assault.”

One thing that Star Wars has always done exceedingly well is subvert expectations. “Rebel Assault,” this week’s episode of Star Wars Rebels follows that tradition with a story that shatters assumptions from the outset. With this first half of the season seemingly building toward an epic clash against the Empire, “Rebel Assault” instead takes the narrative on a downward trajectory much faster than many probably expected.

Audiobook Review: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn, Narrated by Marc Thompson

Well, Mr. Zahn, welcome to the new canon!!! We have been waiting for you. This week the grass is a little greener and the sky is a little bluer, as our Legends/Expanded Universe writing hero, Timothy Zahn has taken his place at the Canon table. What better way to enter the new timeline than to bring an old iconic friend with you! Mith’rawn’urruodo, otherwise known as, Thrawn. It seems that with all the new material that has been published recently and as more time has passed since the last Zahn story, my appreciation for his talent had gone a bit dormant. Well it’s alive and well once again. I can’t wait to tell you why.

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.
