Star Wars Rebels



Quote:
This animated entry in the "Star Wars" franchise fills the gap between the events of "Episode III" and "Episode IV." Imperial forces occupy a remote planet and are ruling -- and ruining -- its inhabitants' lives with an iron fist. A clever, disparate crew aboard the starship Ghost takes a stand against the Empire, facing new villains and colorful adversaries. The rebels on the Ghost include leader Kanan, ace pilot Hera, feisty heroine Sabine, tough guy Zeb and 14-year-old con artist Ezra.
I thought it was about time this got a thread.

So season 2 finale:

Spoiler for Season 2 Finale:


Well, after this episode the theorist are going to have a field day with what all of this could mean for Episode 8 onwards and whatever was happening in the background of the other movies.

Well....That will change a bunch of stuff.

Season Three will likely build up towards Rogue One and A New Hope. So probably the formation of the Rebel Alliance and the discovery of the Death Star.

But the Light Side/Dark Side plot will continue.

Dear God. The writers just can't help themselves at this point.

Dang. It really hit the fan. They certainly didn't hold back during this episode.

Yeah the ending. It is hard to tell how much happened at the end and how much was symbolism.

We'll find out, some day. If characters return.

I wonder how long the complaints about this being too kiddie will continue verse the Clone Wars. Because that got dark this episode. And I imagine it will stay dark until just before the dawn....the Battle of Yavin and A New Hope. But I half suspect a lot of the crew to be dead by then, or at least by Endor. War is rough and if Yoda was right, the last of the Jedi was Luke. But also the last of the Sith end at Endor. (though not all Force users are Sith or Jedi)

Never tose out something good, unless you have the ability to reuse it later to your advantage.

I see a lot of old ideas coming to life in this show.

I see something new, something Who, and someone blue.

Also how cool is it top get Tom Baker (The Doctor) to do a booming larger than life type character?

I have heard a lot about Thrawn. Hopefully he won't disappoint when he makes his own screen debut.

If they make him as calculating as the novels, and even when he fails gets some of his objective done, he will be just fine. Most times he fails it is due to an unexpected element injected into the carefully crafted plan. That doesn't mean a person expected to be their does something unpredicted, but someone not expected to be their interferes.

And let's be honest. For all their "quirks", our ragtag bunch is fairly predictable, so Thrawn is pretty much the worst possible opponent. What saves them will probably come down to something one of the secondary characters (like Chopper or Hondo) does, or maybe even a surprise third party (Wedge, Lando, etc.). Hopefully it's not the usual "I've got a bad feeling in the Force, so I'm going to do something different".

No, it's not heaven without whole holy trinity. We need Mara show hetself too. But yeah I can't wait seeing Thrawn myself.

That said I don't expect new trilogy remain canon for long.

Good first episode of the season, and very much a "first episode" kind of episode. The episode plot was resolved by the end, but so, so many new plot lines opened up for the rest of the season and potentially beyond. Ezra's slide toward the Dark Side, first and foremost, but also the Bendu, Kanan's recovery, the Holocron, Hondo, Kallus bristling at Thrawn's "civilian casualties", and of course the (blue) man himself. Looks like it's going to be a fun ride...

And he is already playing the long game.

I suspect Maul next week with more holocron shenanigans. Though that also mean more Bendu, and Tom Baker's booming voice.

I seem to recall an older legends tale where Darth Maul went to Tatooine for revenge against Kenobi. I think that was also were the Clone Wars team got the insperation for his first set of mechanical legs.

Could be nothing.
