I can’t believe it’s the final season of Star Wars Rebels! The one-hour premier episode ‘Heroes of Mandalore: Parts One and Two’ is this Monday, October 16th. The fourth and final season of “Star Wars Rebels” will have five airings of the “Heroes of Mandalore: Parts One and Two” throughout the day (12:30am, 3:00am, 7:30am, 5:30pm and 9pm EDT/PDT) on Disney XD and the DisneyNow App.

Sabine is back to rescue her father from the Empire but this time she has Ezra, Kanan, and she’s leading an army of Mandalorians! But the Empire has resurrected a devastating weapon to use against the rebels and Sabine is torn between destroying or using it to fight them.

 

Before season four begins, binge-watch seasons one through three of “Star Wars Rebels” available now on the DisneyNow App.

Do you think our rebels will save Sabine’s father and keep her army united to fight the empire? Who’s your favorite villain or rebel? Leave a comment below and live tweet with me this Monday!

The final and fourth season of Star Wars Rebels will premier Monday, October 16th on Disney XD

Well in the final season the Ghost crew joins the Rebel Alliance that is having a hard time against the enormous and powerful Galactic Empire. It becomes even more personal for Ezra as the Empire threatens Lothal with Imperial Occupation. The entire crew goes back to fight an all foe the evil genius Grand Admiral Thrown. Going home means that they will reunite with old friends and make new alliances to try to throw the Imperials off his home planet.

What do YOU think is in store for our ragtag crew of rebels? I’m hoping that we’ll see more of Kanan & Hera’s relationship (I read the book about how the met <swoon>). I don’t think that Sabine will never stop thinking of Ezra as her ‘kid brother’ but I don’t think we’ll get a Princess Leia/Luke reveal that he’s REALLY her brother! I’m very excited about meeting some of the new characters and creatures in the final season. I love the alien creature we’ve met over the past three seasons on Star Wars Rebels and can’t wait to see what Dave and the team think up for the epic final season! Leave a comment below or tweet me @cherry_LA with what have been some of your favorite episodes, stories and characters! Let’s live tweet the premier episode and get ready to be on the edge of our seats as the final epic season unfolds. May the force be with you …..

I saw Rogue One and was intrigued by the Rebel Freedom Fighter Saw Gerrera played by Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker. I am very excited to get to know Saw better when he joins the Ghost Rebels Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Ezra to fight the Empire. 

“It’s an incredible honor to have Forest Whitaker play Saw in ‘Rebels,'” says series executive producer Dave Filoni. “Forest did a great job at capturing Saw in a way that is a bit mad, a bit crazed, a bit afraid, but also a bit sympathetic. He sees something coming, but no one will take action before it’s too late.”

If you are getting confused about what time period the Disney XD series fits in the Star Wars film history it’s a prequel to the new film Rogue One. Forest will be voicing Saw Gerrera (from the film) in the debut episode “Star Wars Rebels: Ghosts of Genesis, Parts One & Two” that premiers Saturday, January 7th (8:30-9:30 PM EST).

It’s very exciting to hear from Dave and the team behind the animated series that is enriching the Star Wars mythology! Dave’s work on Clone Wars and Rebels is such a labor of love from a fanboy who grew up to work with George Lucas. Dave’s work on the series is a bridge for not only the films but also to fans young and old. What I love about the series is that they give us an opportunity to delve into characters and stories that can unfold as only a weekly series can as opposed to a film with a finite amount of time.

The character of Saw Gerrera was first introduced in the TV series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (2008-2015) as a guerrilla fighter for his home planet. Created by George Lucas, Saw received training from the Jedi – Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano – and served as an early harbinger of the Rebel Alliance, an assortment of disparate groups coming together to fight for a common cause.

Rebels are facing a new threat with Grand Admiral Thrawn when season 3 premiers Saturday, September 24th on Disney XD.

Ezra’s growing up as is his ability to use the force with the guidance of Kanan. But with great ability comes temptation and the siren call of the dark side is waging a war within Ezra’s soul as the third season has the team embarking on new responsibilities and danger. The rebels new base of operations on Atollon has given them some safety but they have a bullseye on their back with Grand Admiral Thrawn working to bring the crew of the Ghost and all the ‘rebel scum’ down. Unlike past enemies who used force and sheer numbers to try to eradicate the rebels they Grand Admiral instead plans to use his intellect to outthink the empire’s enemies.

Photo credit: Lucasfilm

Star Wars Rebels premier ‘Steps into Shadow’ will be an hour event introducing new enemies and (hopefully) friends to the universe. Ezra and Sabine are given more responsibility and challenges that will put them in grave danger. The entire rebel forces will have difficult choices aith an all out assault on the Empire! The crew of the Ghost will be challenged this season and (I for one) am hoping they’ll all stay safe and give the empire heck!

SWR S3 Hera_ Ezra_ Sabine_ ZebAm SO jealous of Star Wars Celebration Europe they got the news first that Tom Baker (Dr. Who) and Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards) are joining Star Wars Rebels S3 as two new characters!

Tom Baker will join the cast as Bendu an powerful ancient that I HOPE is on the side of the Rebels and Grand Admiral Thrawn a Star Wars Legends fan favorite is going to be Lars Mikkelsen who’s bringing the evil!SWR S3 Thrawn Pose

The trailer looks like the rebels are going to have an even HARDER time this fall with the FLYING Stormtroopers!!!! <scream> nope that’s just Mandalorian’s that support the empire and we get to know Sabine Wren (Tiya Sirdar) better as she’s maturing into a leader with the rebel forces. Last season we got a little more history with her ‘sister’ bounty hunter hinting at a hard life growing up and now even more of her roots will be exposed showing (hopefully) what her art means to her and why she’s fighting against the empire. I mean Ezra (Taylor Gray)

has always looked like he’s so in touch with his anger and frustration that the dark side of the force was calling him but I thought he’d escaped the siren call but looking in his eyes I think that he’s still in danger of going Sith!

If you haven’t been enjoying Star Wars Rebels you can catch up with grabbing season 1&2 on sale now since the show takes interweaves new and beloved characters from the Star Wars Universe.

“Star Wars Rebels” Season 3 will debut this fall on Disney XD. You can follow @StarWars for the latest news on #StarWarsRebelsand check out StarWars.com  for more exciting news on the series.

Spoiler Alert! The new mid season premier of Star Wars Rebels returns on Wednesday, January 20 (9PM ET/PT) on Disney XD.

cid:image004.jpg@01D14EF8.967CEB00

*SPOILER ALERT* Here’s a New Mid-Season Trailer for “Star Wars Rebels”… I mean how can any Star Wars fan not <squeel> with Princess Leia, Yoda and Darth Vader expanding on the series as we explore the call of the dark side? If you have not been enjoying the series I say you’ve been missing out on a show that appeals to a fanboy/fangirl in a different way than my beloved Clone Wars. The decision to use a different animation style and new characters expands the universe. You don’t have to LOVE Star Wars to be a fan of the action packed series. The first season focused on introducing each character with unique backstories that didn’t feel like a blue print of the original or new trilogy. Instead they forged a new path that is a fun show for all ages. I know it’s on Disney XD so you may think it’s just for kids but once you watch the show you’ll see that it’s a truly all age series perfect to watch as a family or alone. So get ready to enjoy a series that has a darker feel than you’d expect from Disney XD but EXACTLY what you wanted as a Jedi!

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Executive Producer Dave Filoni during a “Star Wars Rebels” voice recording session

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Executive Producer Dave Filoni during a “Star Wars Rebels” voice recording session

Well I’ve been excited about Star Wars Rebels after getting a chance to interview some of the cast at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con. I was able to have exclusive interviews (roundtable with Steve Blum  & Vanessa Marshall (Hera) with  Zeb (Steve Blum), Ezra (Taylor Gray)Tiya Sircar (Sabine). So watching the first season I have to say I did compare the first episode to Star Wars Clone Wars since Dave Filoni (interview at 2012 SDCC) is still the executive producer/supervising director but once I stopped saying to myself well it doesn’t look like clone wars, it’s new people and why did it have to end <wahhh>!!! I quickly grew to love my hard scrabble rebels trying to jumpstart a rebellion all alone! I mean as a geek chick how could I resist a female pilot Hera who stands up to the boys and STILL takes it straight to the Empire. I love a woman who won’t back down and Vanessa really is able to bring a new voice to the Star Wars universe not only as an adult but also as a new ‘Han Solo’ type instead of the usual damsel in distress that is in most action toons and movies! As the season has gone on Dave has really taken the time to give the characters time to develop a backstory that plays into their personality. When we first meet Ezra he’s just a smart aleck kid who I thought was going to be a dark haired Luke. Than as you got to know him you realize he was on his own and had to be self sufficient in a cold hard world. Sabine is woman who wants to use art to get people thinking about everything that the Empire has taken from them as well as kicking some major bootie as she flys around like Boba Fett!

I’m so excited for the second season of Star Wars Rebels after a finale that blew me away!

Like lots of Star Wars Fans I’ve been watching the new series on Disney XD and with the season finale I was blown away. (SPOILERS) The introduction in the final moments of Darth Vader  and getting to know the characters over the past months has been a huge pleasure.  Now I get to anticipate Sarah Michelle Gellar joining the cast and I wonder if she’ll cause trouble between Kanan and his lady love pilot Hera! Will she join as a part of the new rebel alliance that we just met in the season finale OR will she instead be with the Empire intent on the destruction of the Rebels? Drama bomb!!!

All I can say is that I hope Sarah has some crazy lightsaber that will remind all of us fangirls and fanboys first meeting her as Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Hopefully she, the cast and director will be joining us at the Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim! I know that I want to ask what it will be like to work with Freddie Prinze Jr., (her husband) again. What it’s like to join the Star Wars Universe. Has she been to Skywalker Ranch. AND has she had a chance to get her hands on an original lightsaber! Squeal my geek fangirl inner nerd is starting to show! Is it wrong that I want to ask her about Buffy the Vampire Slayer since like any crazy fan I can’t help but wonder if she’ll visit the universe again.  I have to say it’s unlikely but what can I say so many questions that I need to ask!

Billy Dee Williams returns as smooth-talking scoundrel Lando Calrissian in an all-new Star Wars Rebelsepisode, “Idiot’s Array!”

Billy Dee Williams returns as smooth-talking scoundrel Lando Calrissian in an all-new Star Wars Rebels episode, “Idiot’s Array!”

I will not lie .. my black geek god is starring on tonight’s Star Wars Rebels and Billy Dee Williams (link to YouTube interview) returns as smooth-talking scoundrel Lando Calrissian in an all-new Star Wars Rebels episode, “Idiot’s Array!” So you know I’m going to not only watch but record for posterity!

I remember the excitement as a kid seeing him in ‘Empire Strikes Back’ and just shivering. My grandmother LOVED him and thought he was the most debonair sexy man ever. As a kid I appreciated his voice of honey (smooth, deep rich timbre) and his rich melanin tone. I think he was one of the first black people in a Sci Fi movie I’d seen (other than Star Trek). I swear my dad and I talked about WHY no people of color could be found in Sci Fi movies. Did all the writers and casting agents assume in the future their would be some huge race war and all the ‘colords’ lost so were sent to either a reservation or killed off???  Now as much as I love Star Wars (if you know me you KNOW I love Star Wars ALOT in a crazy fan stalker way) when Lando turned out to be a bit of a villain .. well didn’t like that. But he did redeem himself and his motivation was out of love for his citizens to keep them safe but … who can remain mad at Lando? He had major swag before I even knew the word, had a cool cape that he wore with aplomb AND he was black!

I’m super excited that Star Wars Rebels has his iconic character as a guest tonight. I’m hoping he’ll be back to reprise his role AND that he’s a good guy!

How do you like your Lando? A devil may care wastrel or a good guy on the side of the Jedi Rebels? Leave a comment below!
