Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Review

star-wars-rebels-season-2-poster-720x1062

Rebels had quite the roller coaster of a season this time around, by which I mean it was pretty up and down but ultimately a great ride. Building on the success of the smaller and more minimalist but thrilling first season, season 2 certainly gave us a load of great episodes but ultimately proved that bigger isn’t always better.

Comic Review: Shattered Empire

Shattered Empire is a comic book that takes place right at the battle of Endor featured in Return of the Jedi. We are introduced to Poe Dameron`s parents Shara Bey and Kes Dameron, who are both pilots in the battle for the rebellion. Classic characters like Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Mon Mothma, Admiral Ackbar, C3Po, and R2-D2 are featured prominenetly as well. The very first page has an illustration of Vader fighting Luke Skywalker with the emperor watching on the second death star, which was my favorite illustration in the whole book.

Words fail me… At least short concise sentences summing things up fail me.
From the trailers it was clear this finale was going to big BIG. And while I was certainly excited I was still cautious given how many ideas and characters they would be juggling in just 44 minutes. Other episodes have juggled too many elements and fallen flat in the past and I worried the finale might suffer the same results.
God, do I love it when I’m dead wrong with my cautious optimism. What we got had me nearly in tears from the emotional depth of this finale and wracking my brain with the new mysteries we have to solve.

Eric J Berry: A Star Wars Story

BibFortuna_Jabba_Ep6

I just recently turned 40 and I’ve grown up with Star Wars. I am just old enough to have experienced most of it first hand and I began to think about how differently each generation will see and understand Star Wars as a whole. To someone of my generation, the reveal of Darth Vader being Luke’s father was a surprise. To younger fans, it’s always been common knowledge. Different generations have been and will continue to be introduced to Star Wars in different ways. Continue reading
