There is something I really want to talk about, as it’s something I’ve not seen or read about in the Star Wars universe before. But you need to see it yourself, as I thought it was crazy when it first came up! It is however a trippy experience and very cool to see additional ideas being introduced into old concepts that we’re familiar with.
One of the strongest aspects of this show is the characters and how they interact. You could pair up any two members of the crew and they’d make a good team or story. My favourite though is Kanan and Ezra, and we get a good look at that here. Kana may not be a Master, but he’s learning enough about Ezra to get the best out of him. It’s not without it’s ups and downs though.
On a side note, we hear from the mysterious Fulcrum once again. Who is he/she? Internet rumours suggest Ahsoka, Anakin’s Padawan through the Clone Wars. The voice is modified but it sounds female to me. Could it be? Time will tell I guess.
We get more intrigue regarding Ezra’s past so it’s not as easily wrapped up as I maybe hoped it would be. But whilst I was frustrated slightly with that, it was more than made up for by a blistering final action sequence. It’s always fun to see a Jedi use more than a lightsabre to fight, and if like you one of your favourite EU characters is Kyle Katarn you’ll know what I mean.
Obviously not having real people acting allows more to happen, but if a TV show can show off such exciting action then what can we expect from the new films?
With this two episode arc finished now who knows where the Ghost will end up next. I just want to know who Fulcrum is and what happened to Ezra’s parents! Rebels has got me hooked.
What do you make of it so far?
