Star Wars Rebels - The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray reviewThe final season of Star Wars Rebels begins with the Rebels helping the Mandalorians rescue Sabine‘s (Tiya Sircar) father and ends with a final battle between the Rebellion and the Empire for Lothal. In-between, the season offers several highlights including the loss of a member of the Ghost, a large victory for Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), the return of Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), and episodes exploring how Lothal’s creatures are tied to Rebel’s fate against the Empire. I know there are those that prefer The Clone Wars (and I’m happy to see it return in limited form), but I’d much prefer more episodes featuring these characters.

Star Wars #50

Star Wars #50 comic reviewIssue #50 kicks off a new arc that shows the culmination of the Rebellion’s hard work. The Rebel Fleet has finally been assembled. It’s an impressive sight to behold. Finally, the Rebellion has a weapon to fight back against the Empire. While showing it off new toys and new level of unity to their closest allies, however, things begin to go horribly wrong.

There’s certainly a huge emotional shift in Part 1 of “Hope Dies.” The celebration is cut short when the Rebels discover several of their ships have been sabotaged by Trios who betrays her new friends. That itself would be bad enough, but the arrival of Darth Vader and a fleet of Imperial ships to spring the trap foreshadows big trouble for the Rebellion heading into the next issue.

Darth Vader #17

Darth Vader #17 comic reviewWhat does it mean to be a Jedi? Darth Vader #17 finally brings the Jedi Barr and Darth Vader face-to-face. While Vader is serving his own murderous impulses and the interests of the Emperor and Barr is pushing a Rebellion on Mon Cala that definitely isn’t in the population’s best short-term interests, the comic shows that neither is actually serving the Force.

Darth Vader #17 also features the hard line that Grand Moff Tarkin chooses to take on the rebelling planet, in an attempt to teach a lesson to any who would rebel in the future, even after their leader agrees to stand down and end the Rebellion. Barr and Tarkin bring equal amounts of destruction to Mon Cala as each plays a small role in a much larger game.
