A special guest is here! Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels is "Call to Action" gives us real stakes, real consequences, another guest star, and the feeling that something is going to happen beyond returning to the status quo for once. In other words, it's a good one!

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicle Bundles, New Figures, and Food Toys of the Future

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 8, 2015

Our rampant speculation says maybe not!

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 2, 2015

Return of Gall Trayvis! Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels is "Vision of Hope," which teases us with glimpses into the future (and past) of our crew while giving us more opportunities to wonder how the Empire wants to track down the crew of the Ghost, yet seem to keep ignoring their parking in a big empty field on Lothal.

 

It's great to see them pick up on a plot thread from before, and who isn't ever delighted for Brent Spiner to show up? I mean, he was Devlin Bowman in The Master of Disguise. Read on for more!

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Idiot's Array

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 19, 2015

This is great! Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels is "Idiot's Array," which lets you know right from the start that this is an episode for the hardcore loyalists from the 1980s. Originally appearing in the novels and some other Expanded Universe materials, the episode title lets you know that a familiar face will make an appearance, voiced by one of two special guest voice actors. And it was really fun, too!

If you liked the more episodic one-shot stories of old and love easter eggs aimed specifically at fans like you, this is a real gem of an installment. I daresay it's my favorite of the season and those who hate spoilers, well, too bad. Read on for more!
