Star Wars: Rebels S01 E02 “Fighter Flight” Review.

Episode 4As they did with “Droids in Distress” Disney has released the next episode of Star Wars: Rebels S01 E03 “Fighter Flight” on their Disney XD app. Read more after the jump . . .


Here’s a sneek peek at Rebels Host Hermann22’s review:

The second episode of Rebels titled “Fighter Flight” primarily features Ezra and Zeb going on adventure for….groceries. Yes, Clone Wars fans are quite familiar with the focus of grocery and fruit pursuit episodes. Jogan fruit anyone? (I actually liked that episode TBH) This time our heroes get caught up with the Empire over….fruit. Maylurons (sp? Can’t fault me on this one guys) to be exact.


Check out his Rebels Forum thread in the The Cantina for the rest of the review — caution MILD SPOILERS ahead for those who haven’t seen it — and while your at it join in on the discussion of this popular new series! And in case you haven’t jumped aboard the Ghost for the new canon adventures Yahoo provides 5 reasons why you should:

1- The music


For some, John Williams’s original score is more stirring than the national anthem, and composer Kevin Kiner is doing everything to bring us “back to that time and sense of adventure” of the original films.


He also did the music for The Clone Wars, which incorporated more rock elements, but he promises that the Rebels music will be “closer to A New Hope.”

    I’d like some Jogan fruit with some Jawa juice. 🙂

    One thing I like in rebels is the sky. Not blue and bright but real, stormy. When I think of tatooine from anh, the cloudy moody skys feel more real than sunny blue (though if there is so many clouds surely you won’t need moisture farmers) – tpm battle scene still reminds me of a Microsoft windows desktop – bright green grass and blue sky – not very “real” in mood or lighting. The art direction team are doing a good job.

      Youre right on that one. But theres nothing i love more on film, than a thick, Technicolor blue sky, ideally combined with saturated rocky terrain. See beginning shots of Indiana Jones 3

    I’d like a big glass of blue milk to wash down my jogan fruit. = P

    I can not wait until it is post to iTunes. I have been buying each episode before they are shown on Disney. The last few episodes have been on iTunes on Saturday morning when I go look for them, does anyone have any idea of the release date to iTunes for this episode?

    Really guys? The Phantom Menace was horrible because of a two-secod scene mentioning “midichlorians” and yet this junky kids show is good becasue of fruit and the color of the sky?

      It’s because it reminds them of the Original Trilogy, it doesn’t matter if it’s good or not.

      No the phantom menice sucked because litterally every second of the movie sucked

      • October 15, 2014 at 4:43 am

        Darth Maul and Duel of the Fates sucked? That’s news to me. Now try to explain to me how this crap is better than Phantom Menace, OT fanboy. I await your reply.

          Define “fanboy” because the ot make up three of the top ten movie (adjusted for inflation) of all time. so I find it comical that a tiny group of people who are obsessed with the crappy pt and hate the rest of the world for not liking them. Call the mainstream “fanboys”.
          This cartoon is better than the pt for hundreds I reasons. But I will start with the fact that the pt took one of if not the most iconic and beloved villins in movie history and turned him into the most pissy whiny uninteresting unlikeable character in movie history.

            “…the pt took one of if not the most iconic and beloved villins in movie history and turned him into the most pissy whiny uninteresting unlikeable character in movie history…”

            1. This is JUST your opinion. You’re granted that much.
            2. DV’s ICONIC status was not automatically diminished just because the exposition of his origins weren’t delivered in a manner that inspires “awe”, belief and masturbation in the observations of some nitpickers that had already pre-determined how the story was supposed to play out (-mostly based on their own biases and desires of what they hoped/wanted to see) lol. Suffice it to say (and, w/o question) Anakin Skywalker had serious issues with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, GL’s depiction of these things can, at best, be questioned (but not necessarily faulted) for how this played out on screen. Get off of the Jar-Jar shrooms and come back to reality (-in Padme’s voice).

            Of course it’s my opinion. It’s your opinion the pt are good movies an that this cartoon is bad. And if you could handle the fact that your opinion was different from the rest of the world, no one would care. But your fragile little ego can except that and so you try to find excuses why everyone else doesn’t share your stupid opinions

    This was a very good episode. I thought the movie and the first episode felt a bit forced with the characterizations, but the characters in this episode seemed to have a much more natural rapport and were less cutesy.

    On another note, however, I do hope future episodes will make the Empire seem more of a tangible threat. These stormtroopers have even worse aim than in the Original Trilogy. I also want to see less cartoony Imperial officers more in the vein of General Veers and Admiral Piett–guys who weren’t “evil” by any stretch but instead efficient and reliable military men who just happened to serve the Empire.

    The first two minutes have more comedy than Rp 1-3 together. Intentional comedy that is. I was entertained. All three episodes so far is feel-good-Star-Warsy with a smattering of unwarsy bits. Whatever, its fun.
