Star Wars Rebels - Legacy of Mandalore TV review

Following the events of “Trial of the Darksaber,” the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels takes Sabine (Tiya Sircar) back home to Mandalore. With Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Ezra (Taylor Gray), and Fenn Rau (Kevin McKidd) in tow, Sabine’s mission is to reconnect with her disapproving mother (Sharmila Devar) and estranged family and attempt to get them to turn against the Empire. For the second episode in a row, Star Wars Rebels gives us a look into Sabine’s past and the troubled history that led her to joining the Rebellion.

Star Wars Rebels - Trial of the Darksaber TV review

Over the course of three seasons Star Wars Rebels hasn’t given us too many episodes that highlight the team’s weapon specialist. Sure, we’ve been given glimpses into her past by the appearance of her former bounty-hunter partner, and heard mentions of her clan, but for the most part Sabine‘s (Tiya Sircar) past has remained undeveloped. The recovery of the Darksaber begins to rectify this as Sabine is challenged to take control of the legendary weapon and use it to unify the remnants of Madalore once more.

Star Wars Rebels - Ghosts of Geonosis TV review

The two-part episode “Ghosts of Geonosis” works to weave Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story more tightly together with an appearance by Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). Heading back to Geonosis for information about how and why the Empire wiped out an entire race, the crew of the crew discover Gerrera and a lone surviving Geonosian. As we see in Rogue One, Saw is more determined and ruthless than the other Rebels introduced over the series. It will be interesting to see if we see more of this radical element of the Rebellion this season.

Star Wars Rebels - Visions and Voices television review

Shared visions and unanswered questions bring Ezra (Taylor Gray) and Maul (Sam Witwer) back together on Atollon. Traveling to Dathomir, Maul uses the Force magic of the Nightsisters to complete the visions that were interrupted once before. It seems the answers to both their questions leads to Tatooine as the show teases the possibility of an appearance by Obi-Wan Kenobi and the first animated appearance of a young farm boy destined to bring down an Empire.
