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.

Darth Maul #1

Darth Maul #1 comic reviewGiven the success of the (sadly completed) Darth Vader series, it should come to know surprise that Marvel launches another title centered around a Sith Lord. Set prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menance, Darth Maul centers around Darth Sidious‘ apprentice.

While I’m not wild about the art of Luke Ross in this first issue, the action is fast-paced and certainly shows off Maul’s prowess. As in the film, the character doesn’t speak much, but here we are given narration to let us know what’s going on in Maul’s pointy head. Impatience is the main theme of the first issue as Darth Maul struggles to deal with his anger and hate for the Jedi but still obey his master and wait until the proper time to strike and make their existence known.

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.
