The Characters We Could See in the 2nd Season of ‘The Mandalorian’

The Mandalorian is turning out to be quite a series and with it taking place five years after Return of the Jedi, there’s a lot of directions this story can go. Jon Favreau has so far concocted a story that feels like it sits in its own corner of the Star Wars universe but as the story grows bigger with every episode it’s very possible that Jon Favreau may be tying this series into the larger scope of the franchise in a really exciting way.

So, with that thought in mind, here are some characters that we could quite possibly see in the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian.

Sabine Wren

The Mandalorian is a series that explores the fascinating culture of the Mandalorians and what wouldn’t be greater than to see Sabine Wren make an appearance in the series? She’s a Mandalorian, after all, and she has a knack for fighting against those with bad intentions.

With The Mandalorian featuring a storyline that could be leading to something very big huge characters like Sabine Wren could very well make an appearance in the future. Continue reading The Characters We Could See in the 2nd Season of ‘The Mandalorian’

‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Season 4 Review

It’s very difficult to make a good television show, specifically a memorable cartoon. The best cartoon I had ever watched prior to Star Wars: Rebels was Avatar: The Last AirbenderThe Last Airbender is storytelling perfection, slowly but surely delivering an impactful story that brings about one of the most epic final seasons (and series finales) of any television series.

The Clone Wars was the second-best cartoon I had ever watched but now, after seeing Star Wars: RebelsThe Clone Wars has clearly no contest.

Star Wars: Rebels had one of the best finales I’ve ever seen to anything, television show or movie. It delivered a gripping final few episodes that have left me still reeling by its incredible storytelling. And yeah, I cried like a baby and I’m not ashamed to admit it either.

‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Season 3 Review

The first two seasons were building upon the characters’ storylines, providing challenging obstacles that they would have to face and grow as a family to overcome and Season 3 only continued that plotline in a very interesting and legitimately enjoyable fashion. The end of Season 2 was beyond epic, delivering some very fascinating moments with some pretty fantastic Force-wielders, including that imminently epic showdown between Ahsoka and Darth Vader. But Season 3 did not disappoint either and so, let’s get to this review.

When last we saw Ezra Bridger he was still just a kid who didn’t fully understand the dangers of the Force, particularly the dark side. He trusted Maul only to be betrayed, his nifty blaster/lightsaber was destroyed by Vader, and he barely escaped Malachor alive.

When next we see the young Jedi the little boy that we knew had grown up! The artists did a great job evolving Ezra in such an exciting way, shaving his floppy hair to a short hair-do and adding a bit of muscle definition into his arms to show that he was older. Not to mention that he was finally tall!

And not only had he grown up, but his power with the Force since last time we’d seen him as well. He had a new lightsaber but he was also beginning to embrace the dark side. It led some rather interesting storylines later down the road in Season 3 that would turn out to craft Ezra into a better person. Continue reading ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Season 3 Review

‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 2’ Review

Before I begin this post I just want to say this. I binge-watched the last three seasons of Star Wars: Rebels in a matter of two days and I am still not fully recovered from the emotional toll the final few episodes of Season 4 placed on me. Even now, as I write these words, I am overcome with emotion to the point of getting teary-eyed because of the tremendously heroic (and heartbreaking) moments that happened in Season 4.

Star Wars: Rebels is the best cartoon I’ve seen since Avatar: The Last Airbender and that is not an exaggeration. This show was so fantastic, from beginning to end, with such a profoundly good story that I’m just overwhelmed by how perfect it was. However, for the next three days, I will share my thoughts on each season and the moments, in particular, that I loved the most. So today, we look back at Season 2.

Okay, the final three episodes of Star Wars: Rebels impressed me but it would be soon very clear that this wasn’t going to be one of the shows that has a good first season but eventually dies down in quality. Oh no, Star Wars: Rebels is a whole other story.

The very first episode of Season 2, The Siege of Lothal, was nothing short of extraordinary, delivering some fantastic action, some eye-widening suspense, and Darth Vader. Need I say more?

It became very clear that our rebels would face far greater forces than they had first encountered in the first season, which only rose the stakes and my overall excitement big time.

And throughout the rest of the season, there are plenty of other moments that stood out and brought me immense joy. Continue reading ‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 2’ Review

‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 1’ Review

I just finished the first season of Star Wars: Rebels and I am beyond impressed. With the spare bits of spoiler-heavy knowledge I’ve picked up over the years regarding the series I am surprised to learn there’s a lot more to this story than what I first expected and boy am I ready to hold on for the ride.

For the first four episodes, I was just getting to know the characters and the story and, to be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed. However, it wasn’t until Episode 5: Rise of the Old Masters, that I began to see the magic of the story.

Ezra Bridger’s first moment of desperation with the Force showcases his dark-side prone behavior, a behavior that is very akin to Rey’s own struggles in the Sequel Trilogy. This episode was the moment I began to really pay attention to these characters and actually care about these characters.

It, however, wasn’t until Episode 10: Path of the Jedi, that I was sold on the enjoyment of this series’ first season. Continue reading ‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 1’ Review
