Three years ago today, the Star Wars: Rebels series finale ‘Family Reunion - and Farewell’ aired!
As a result, today is ‘Rebels Remembered’ day. I can’t tell you how good it is to see so many people coming together to appreciate this lovely show. It’s a very compelling story of a family unit being forged in a time of desperation, and although it’s primarily about the formation of the Rebellion, it has many great additions to Star Wars mythology and the Force also. It has some truly fantastic characters, one of the best romantic couples in Star Wars, and one of the best master-apprentice relationships in Star Wars. And despite what some say about the animation, I love how it brings McQuarrie’s art-style and some of his unused concepts to the screen - and I personally think it looks great too.
