OUR FAVORITE MOMENTS FROM STAR WARS REBELS

Via Starwars.com:

THE FOURTH AND FINAL SEASON COMES HOME TODAY, AND SOME OF STARWARS.COM’S WRITERS HAVE PICKED THEIR FAVORITE MOMENTS FROM THE SERIES THAT DEFINED THE BIRTH OF THE REBELLION.

While Star Wars: The Clone Wars illuminated the toll of out-and-out war tearing the fabric of the galaxy to shreds, Star Wars Rebels was built on hope and the belief that a small group of like-minded individuals banding together had the power to bring great change to the world around them. The series introduced us to the Ghost crew — Hera, the talented pilot who sometimes has exciting landings; Kanan, a Jedi without an order who has been surviving by hiding his true identity; Sabine, a proud Mandalorian in search of belonging; Zeb, one of the last of the Lasats; Chopper, an astromech and veteran of the Clone Wars; and Ezra, a Force sensitive street urchin abandoned on Lothal and in need of a teacher. Over four seasons, we rode along on their missions and watched them grow from single fledgling rebel cell to an essential part of the Rebel Alliance.

In honor of the release of Star Wars Rebels, the complete fourth season, on Blu-ray and DVD today, we asked StarWars.com’s contributors to weigh in with their favorite moments, characters, and story arcs from the series.

Taylor Gray Has ‘High Hopes’ For Ezra’s Return

Via Screenrant.com:

Taylor Gray reveals that he’s hoping that there is a future for Ezra in Star Wars following his stint in Star Wars Rebels. The actor is the voice behind the Lothal orphan turned Jedi Knight, whom fans have rallied behind alongside the rest of the Ghost crew for four years. For quite some time, many have presumed that Ezra would turn into the dark side following several times he was tempted to switch sides, especially with Darth Maul lurking at the sidelines.

However, he proved his doubters wrong by staying on the Jedi path that Kanan started him in, and even chose what is right amidst the most tempting offer from Emperor Palpatine. In the end, he decided to sacrifice his life just to make sure that Lothal is safe, staying with Grand Admiral Thrawn as the Purrgil jumped to hyperspace with the villain’s ship. But with Rebels not giving any definitive resolution to the two’s ultimate fates, we are still hoping that both will eventually make their returns.

Speaking with Hidden Remote regarding the four brilliant seasons of the Dinsey XD series, Gray looked back at some of his most favorite moments, as well as his thoughts on Ezra Bridger’s ultimate fate. And like most fans, the 24-year-old is also keeping his fingers crossed for the return of the character at the Star Wars forefront.

“I think it was a great sacrificial ending and it wrapped up the story; Lothal is safe and Ezra became whole as a Jedi and learned the way of the Jedi through selflessness. I have high hopes for him to return – he’s grown into a formidable Jedi and we know he’s out there somewhere amongst the Purrgil in deep space.”

STAR WARS REBELS FINALE ECHOES THE SAGA’S GREATEST THEMES

Via Starwars.com:

ONE LAST LESSON — THAT REVERBERATES THROUGHOUT STAR WARS.

As the dust settles on the series finale of Star Wars Rebels, we’re left to look at what it’s added to the tapestry of the broader mythology of Star Wars. Taking that closer look, the ending of Rebels was emotional and hopeful, and fits beautifully with the things that make Star Wars so important.

The final episodes, particularly series finale “Family Reunion – and Farewell,” hone in on Ezra Bridger and his journey as a responsible wielder of the Force, and it echoes Luke’s trials through Return of the Jedi, as well as Anakin’s temptations to the dark side in Revenge of the Sith. Where Luke has to work to save the galaxy by saving his father, Ezra has to save Lothal by saving his friends. Both of them learn that sometimes, the best way to save your friends and the things you love is to sacrifice yourself. It brings to mind Rose Tico’s last line in The Last Jedi in the most heartbreaking and beautiful ways.
