If by some chance you haven’t checked out Star Wars Rebels, this new series recap will give you a taste of what you’ve been missing. The show centers on a group of smugglers who come to not only believe in the rebellion against the Galactic Empire, but aid its evolution into the Alliance seen in the original Star Wars trilogy. Force-sensitive boys, exiled Jedi and veterans of the Clone Wars emerge as heroes while the Empire unleashes its own Force-using Inquisitors and the infamous Grand Admiral Thrawn to dispatch the crew of the Ghost as they become an unlikely family.
Featuring great action, surprising Star Wars cameos and a core group of characters who can carry humor and drama, Rebels turned out to be one of the best things about the Disney era of Star Wars. Or maybe it just hits all the right buttons for me as older fan of the multimedia universe. It’s also coming to an end with the upcoming fourth season and if the sizzle reel is any indication, the show will end on a truly powerful note.
Star Wars Rebels returns with a two-part episode airing throughout the day on Disney XD this upcoming Monday, October 16th.
