Star Wars Rebels Review: S01 E11 “Call to Action”

Lothal ROTJDisney has released the next episode of Star Wars Rebels: “Call to Action” on their Disney XD app. Join our Rebels host (@Hermann22) and read our review after the jump…



Here’s a small excerpt from the review:

I COULDN’T WAIT to write about this episode. I think this is one that many will point to as one of their favorites. I know it’s one of mine!


“Call To Action” gives us a serious side that we haven’t seen since “Gathering Forces” and we get the series introduction to a major character that has some weight to it. Enough gabbing!

    Best episode yet i really like the plot and hoping to see more good episodes like this

      I also think it would have been a good ending if ezra jumped down from the tower and saved kanaan or after the group left you see the ship fly in and it ends there

        Nah sorry, I disagree… having this plot twist will make the difference.

          Remember the Simpson’s episode where Homer walked out of the theatre and says, “who wouldve thought Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father”

    Excellent episode

      … if you like trash.

        Why do you even bother to read this article if you think it’s so terrible, then?

    Best Episode yet..

    Good episode. They’re treating Tarkin good, and consistent with ANH. Must be tough for Disney to walk the line between satisfying the fans that want a more darker treatment, but also the younger audience. I’m sure some uptight parent somewhere complained to Disney about how the scene with those 2 imperial officers was treated.

    ”You’ve Taken Your First Step Into A Larger World”

    Cool. Looks like Tarkin is serious and stern like the original. We need that in the seriesand children will just have to learn to understand Star Wars is about a political system and wars not just cute cuddly characters that it has become. I’m happy is older audiences are getting some respect and not everything Lego this and angry birds Star Wars that. I’m sick of the kiddie crap. The movie will bring it back to its former glory. I really wanna see the emperor and Vader and a young Luke.

    How dare you insult Lego Star Wars?

  • February 6, 2015 at 11:39 pm

    i saw this a week ago, why are these recaps always a week late?

  • February 7, 2015 at 1:19 am

    The best episode so far! Tarkin is a fantastic character and its so good to see him in Star Wars again (albeit in animated form). Keep this style of story coming and I’ll take back every negative comment I’ve made against this show!

  • February 7, 2015 at 1:21 am

    Are they building a Death Star on Lothal? The roundish building Tarkin’s shuttle lands on looks rather Death Starry???

    • February 7, 2015 at 1:37 am

      It reminds me about the senate.

  • February 7, 2015 at 1:25 am

    Very good episode. The voice actor for Tarkin does a wonderful job.

    I can’t help but think though that it would have really helped the show if this kind of stuff had happened sooner.

    • February 7, 2015 at 5:53 am

      I really wish Disney would start telling new Star Wars stories about new characters we care about, instead of banking on nostolgia to save them. Yoda, Lando, C3P0, etc…. these brief cameos had more life and personality than then entire crew of the Ghost.

  • February 7, 2015 at 4:25 am

    I swear that pic above looks like a star destroyer and two tie fighters heading toward epcot center and Disneyland….

  • February 7, 2015 at 5:53 am

    A huge galaxy with thousand of star systems….

    ….and we’re still stuck on Lothal.

    • February 7, 2015 at 8:25 am

      Tarkin mentioned the existance of other rebel movements, so I think sooner or later the ghost crew will leave Lothal.

  • February 7, 2015 at 9:01 am

    you just said that the best rebels episode it’s trash? what you’ve been smoking?

  • February 7, 2015 at 9:06 am

    Ohh no, again? reply doesn’t work

  • February 7, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    The episodes are getting better as the series progresses, I’d rate the show at 8.3 atm. The female characters are not as developed as they should be by this time, one of the show’s weaknesses, Hera and Sabine each need their own semi standalone so the viewers can sympathize with them more.
    Speaking of standalone, I like the rumor that Sabine is the main female character in the Bounty Hunter film, good way to tie the SW universe together and peak both male and especially female viewers interest. I read the new rumor is the standalone is set 3 years after RotJ, which makes Sabine about 29-30.

    • February 7, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      I thought that in a vision of hope we say a big development on Hera’s character. Given that the episodes are only 20 minutes long we can’t get much of an arc on the supporting cast. As for the spin off movie having Sabine as the lead… not really that excited about that as she is the least developed and my least favorite character on the series. But all in all a well done episode. Hopefully this will be the story telling we will get going into the future.

      • February 9, 2015 at 10:52 pm

        Maybe she’s not developed as a character yet so they don’t tie the hands of the writers for the standalone. Just a thought.

  • February 8, 2015 at 10:39 pm

    Was not expecting two of the characters to be taken out so soon by the Inquistor on a Disney show .

    And people still call it a kiddie series?

    • February 9, 2015 at 5:10 pm

      That was quite shocking. The two officers were in the very first episode and were executed. Wouldn’t want young children to watch that.

  • February 9, 2015 at 9:44 pm

    The scene was done so fast with a quick show of reaction from Markus that I had to watch the episode again to see what I think just happened..

    Good episode actually.

    Maybe they should have Markus defect next and move the story line along that way.
