I’ve been wanting to do a post highlighting Kanan Jarrus and why I think he’s the perfect Jedi but then I watched The Clone Wars the other day and I realized that he and Ahsoka are both fine examples of the perfect Jedi. And it is two distinct scenes that I think of to prove this point.
SPOILERS FOR The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels AHEAD!
Ever since The Mandalorian in mid-December I have been on a Star Wars television marathon consisting of The Clone Wars to Star Wars: Rebels and which will conclude with rewatching the first two seasons of The Mandalorian again.
The idea was sprung as simply a fun task to distract me from my near month-long wait for WandaVision but became something that was exciting and rewarding all at once.
Now, over two months into this mission, I have finally reached the finish line of Star Wars: Rebels. Yesterday, I cried like a baby through Jedi Night and was super inspired for the Ahsoka series thanks to the fascinating episode, World Between Worlds. Today marks the end of this journey as I watch the last two episodes of what is undoubtedly my favorite Star Wars show.
I have always heard of the love for characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia, but it is the Ghost crew who are my favorite core group in Star Wars. Their family dynamic is something you don’t really get in the franchise and each character is lovable in a different way.
To know that we’re finally getting that long-awaited Rebels sequel in Ahsoka is just mind-boggling and I can’t wait! And yeah, Rebels has provided me two of my top 3 favorite Jedi in Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus. I love them so much!
All in all, I’m excited to finally get to the end of this Rebels marathon and get on to The Mandalorian.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
Star Wars‘ animated series have become some of the best source of storytelling in the franchise. The Clone Wars and Rebels have located themselves in the gaps of stories we already know, introduced new characters to us that we have fallen in love with, and helped add depth to a story that, already great, seems even better.
The Clone Wars is set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, with its final season which came out earlier this year, coinciding with certain events in Revenge of the Sith.
It was amazing! And the series, as a whole, is just plain fun with so many episodes to explore and enjoy. The animated series, in 2008, may have been considered a joke, but now, twelve years later, it’s thought of as one of the greatest animated series of all time.
I remembered this post I wrote last year and decided to revisit it with a much-needed update. Enjoy!
21. The Secret Wedding
While this is clearly a beautiful scene (I mean come on, Naboo’s gorgeous) I skip it every time. Padme is absolutely stunning in her wedding attire and it’s supposed to be a heartwarming scene but I’m just not a fan of Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman’s smooching scenes. Ugh. Hence, my least favorite romantic moment. Continue reading Ranking the Romantic Moments in ‘Star Wars’; from Worst to Best→
Star Wars: Rebels is filled with fantastic episodes that have delivered some rather incredible moments. Moments that I’ve just seen due to my recent introduction to Star Wars: Rebels. Moments of which I will never forget. I could easily list my ten favorite episodes from the series so far but I thought it would be more fun to see which episodes rank supreme in the collective viewers’ eyes. So, on that note, here are the top ten episodes of Star Wars: Rebels according to IMDb.
10. Season 3. Episode 14: “Trial of the Darksaber”-9/10
Many of the characters were given extra depth to their storyline with episodes that centered around their personal obstacles but Sabine Wren was always just there…until this episode. Suddenly, we delve into her personal backstory and we soon discover the tragedy that has struck her own life. Gone is the mystery surrounding her character and suddenly she is given that much more meaning in the story.
As fans of pop culture, my sister and I are always on top of the latest Marvel and Star Wars news and sometimes we like to conceptualize certain actors as certain characters or versions of our favorite characters that we’d like to see in the future. Such as Captain America with a beard. I had been waiting for the moment when our perfectly-shaven Cap would finally head into the rugged department with a beard and sure enough he finally got one in Avengers: Infinity War. I still remember seeing Cap with a beard for the first time in the teaser trailer. To say I was elated was an understatement.
So now, we’re taking our concepts to life in the form of my sister’s ever impressive art for this brand new series of mine, A Cool Concept.
Last week, there was news that Katee Sackhoff (the voice of Bo-Katan Kryze in both The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels) would play Bo-Katan in live-action for the second season of The Mandalorian. So, naturally, my sister had to paint an idea of what that could look like. Here it is. Continue reading A Cool Concept: Bo-Katan and Ezra Bridger→
