    It was good.

    • March 3, 2015 at 8:15 am

      Your god damn right is was!

      • March 4, 2015 at 1:39 am

        Started with “Spark of Rebellion” and ended with “Fire across the Galaxy…’

        The Inquisitor’s final line was absolutely great “There are some things far more frightening than death” Plus Darth Vader! I can’t even express the excitement I feel, an excitement for Star Wars I havn’t felt since KotOR back in ’03.

        Rebels started off slow but really gained speed towards the end. All that said, I’d give this episode a 10/10. This was the best episode yet. lets see what season 2 has in store for us!

      They’re multiplying
      And I’m losing control

  • March 3, 2015 at 9:00 am

    Despite my noblest of intentions, as soon as characters better established than the Rebels crew enter the fray, I immediately stop caring about Ezra, Zeb etc. They feel like the framing device for propelling the story from one larger event to another, for example taking us from TCW to indirect exposition for TFA. I still enjoy the show, but because I can’t as yet care much for the wellbeing of the native characters I’m mainly drawn to the visuals, designs, action sequences and music. Am looking forwards to Season Two!

  • March 3, 2015 at 9:15 am

    I think Season One is equivalent in terms of scale to Luke’s adventures on Tatooine up to the moment he boards the Falcon and hits the Imperial blockade – numerous skirmishes, some life-changing moments Luke can’t ever undo, and journeying into a larger world. He transforms from a restless lonely farmboy into a fugitive, aided and abetted by a drug-smuggler and outlaw Jedi, into a combatant aboard the most dangerous battle station the galaxy’s ever known. Season Two may be pitched as a parallel to Luke’s fight for survival aboard the Death Star, sought by Vader, Tarkin and countless Imperial hordes, but with new friends by his side to even the odds a little better.

    I like the character design for Commander Sato and the Phoenix Squadron pilots.

    finally this series is getting somewhere was too juvenile before this is exactly what we wanted

  • March 3, 2015 at 9:39 am

    Oh yeah. Now it’s picking up!

  • March 3, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Sabine is so hot! She has such a sexy voice too! The broad that does her voice is sexy as well. Disney had a hot actress portray her in a celebration last year and goddamn she was hot!!

  • March 3, 2015 at 11:24 am

    SO call me crazy but this is the first full episode of this show that I sat through. And I must say, this series seems pretty bad. I’ve stayed away for this long because I don’t think that characters like Sabrine (with a checkered Tie-Fighter should exist in the SW Universe. Although, like it or not this is the new canon.

    So that said, this episode was OKAY. 6/10 in my honest opinion. Dialogue seemed cheesy with the exception of The Inquisitors role in the episode with the exception of Ahsoka. A little too fast paced for my taste.

    In my exceptionally worthless opinion, this show seems like it was created by PT fan-boys that preferred that trilogy over the original 3. Please don’t whine about my disgust for the prequels. They were awesome in my younger days, but then I became interested in Film as a whole and discovered how bad George Lucas is.

    With all due respect, I can appreciate the prequel trilogy, but I don’t plan on ever watching any of those 3 films again. I guess if I had it my way I would erase the prequel trilogy from history and hit George Lucas over the head with a rock so somebody else might have rebooted the franchise.

    ANYWAY, I hope season 2 will be better, because I have to see Darth Vader kill the hell out of Ahsoka.

    PS: The Clone Wars was bad too.

    h8 me

      Reported for violent threats.

      • March 3, 2015 at 11:57 am

        Yes because I meant that literally 🙂

        • March 3, 2015 at 12:40 pm

          This is the internet.

    • March 3, 2015 at 12:02 pm

      1. I don’t appreciate the prequels very much, but I love rebels. I don’t get where do you see more PT than OT in Rebels. Despite Sabine’s character (which is a new concept) the rest of what you see is much more OT than PT.

      2. How bad Lucas is. Well, he did three movies in which most of the decisions he took as director are not understandable to me, but yesterday I watched A New Hope again and it’s a BRILLIANT, MASTERFULLY DIRECTED film in all senses.

      • March 3, 2015 at 4:29 pm

        He sees that the show is animated.
        Clone wars was also animated.
        TCW was in prequel era.
        PT lovers confirmed?

    • March 3, 2015 at 3:47 pm

      How does George Lucas suck? He brought this to us all! Unreal. Go play dungeons and dragons and talk about death and fire. It’s for kids and it’s all awesome!

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:26 pm

      I bet you didnt watch clone wars.

      • March 4, 2015 at 10:46 am

        I did actually and it definitely had its ups and downs like any show. Wasn’t a big fan of the nightsister / zombie story arc or Darth Maul coming back with a brother.

    • March 3, 2015 at 6:56 pm

      Your opinion is crap, not prequels, and not George Lucas.

      George Lucas created both PT and OT.

      And OT-whining Fan boys need a reboot ( in brain ).

    • March 3, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      I don’t see the prequel trilogy in this at all. This is pure OT, cheesy dialogue and all. My advice to you is to not watch it at all because I know what you want from SW and barring a 1313 themed spinoff film you’re not gonna get what you want in a TV/Film medium. While hard core fans like you and me would like that let’s not forget that ESB barely covered it’s bills. The demand just isn’t there.

  • March 3, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Of griffin…tell us what you really think

  • March 3, 2015 at 11:44 am

    Best season finale ever! The saber fight was new and refreshingly clever! And that ending! Couldn’t have been better.

    Can’t wait to see Princess Leia in this! Crossing my fingers for season 2! Seeing her interact with Bail Organa and seeing Ahsoka interact with Vader! So exciting! The possibilities are endless!

  • March 3, 2015 at 11:50 am

    Was ok, as always the shooting action is unrealistic as it can be,Sabine just standing there while they shoot is just silly, but ending was good.Sadly episodes is way to short so it all is so rushed.

    • March 3, 2015 at 6:39 pm

      Yes and han solo charging after stormtroopers with Chewie, then running into a hanger full, and not a single shot hit them is realistic? /sarcasm/

      These stormtroopers are meant to be bad at shooting for the very purpose of making fun of the OT troopers. >___>

  • March 3, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Great episode. I really enjoyed that. But, I have 2 questions:

    1) Why didn’t they make Ahsoka look the way she did in the Clone Wars? I understand that she is older now. But, they totally reconstructed her face. They could have made her face look like the older Ahsoka from that CW episode where she saw herself in the future. Why bring back the same voice actor – yet, make her look like an entirely different person? 

    2) Why did they use that abbreviated version of Vader’s breathing? The second “exhale” sound has the beginning of it cut off and there’s this popping noise (as a result of the sound beginning in an abrupt and unnatural manner). Lucas used that one sometimes in stuff in the prequel era. It drove me nuts then. Why is Filoni’s team sampling THAT one? They need to find the full, unedited breathing sound for future episodes.

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:20 pm

      I do think they can’t really use the old models for whatever reason (Cartoon Netwoork copyright conflict?). I was expecting to be upset with new Ashoka and it was exactly like that. Maybe we need to get used to the new one, let’s give it some time. But yes, Ashoka’s older version in Clone Wars was better, as well ass Bail Organa and Tarkin. I liked the Thunderbird like characters in TCW!

      To be fair, Hera and Vader are AWESOME 3d models.

  • March 3, 2015 at 1:19 pm

    I honestly expeceted Kannan to die. So anti-climactic. I really liked the Inquisitor, now the Prequel movies make less and less sense.

    If Kannan can beat the Inquisitor then he is a formidable Jedi. And now Ashoka is alive as well- btw I hate her face marks, really liked the older ones and I kinda liked the way she was depicted in Clone Wars as an adult- way sexier and menacing.

    So now we have 2 formdiable Jedi Knights and a newbie who can apparently have 2 masters to guide him. Plus Kennobi plus Yoda.

    The whole thing seems cheesy to me. How many characters will the Republic Remnants have to lose now before New Hope even makes sense? Ezra and Kannan will have to die if the Prequel movies will have to make any sense at all.

    Also really dissapointed with the fact that they didn’t go darker and kill Kannan. I said it twice but I am really pissed with that one. They promised the Inquisitor would be a serious villain and they did not deliver.

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:17 pm

      The inquisitor is a character that should be alive for a longer time. He was great… greater than Kanan indeed.

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      How do the prequel movies make less sense? I dont see.

      • March 3, 2015 at 4:30 pm

        Sorry for reporting ur comment- did it by mistake!

        Anyway, this series was fine until it didn’t kill Kannan. It was the right momment and they blew it. How on Earth are they are going to kill Ashoka, Kannan and Ezra, all these beloved characters? HOW? They must die, all of them so the Prequels for which they are not present anyway, will be able to hold their continuity. Really bugs me.

        Are we going to see these characters in TFA in some way? Whhere were they in the 10 years while the prequels story unfolds?

        Really messes the continuity up. That’s just me though.

        • March 3, 2015 at 4:45 pm

          It’s geared for kids. Plus it’s fiction…which means it is make-believe…

        • March 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

          Its easy to kill them off. Bail Organa calls the active Jedi(Ashoka Kannan and Ezra) to Alderaan to meet about the Stolen Death Star plans his daughter has. Series ends. They are all present on Alderaan when it blown up. Deaths off screen kid friendly Luke Obi-wan and Yoda are all thats left.

          • March 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm

            This is probably what will happen.

            However, I think Ashoka and vader have a show down at the end of season 2/3 and vader kills Ashoka. Thus giving fans a cool fight, closure for Ashokas fate, and making vader even more of an evil badass

          • March 3, 2015 at 7:59 pm

            Basically this. For the show to add any weight she needs to go down in a blaze of glory kid show or not. I also believe Kanan will make the sacrifice play in the series finale and Ezra will either turn bad or abandon the force altogether. The bizarre fan theory of Ashoka surviving all the way into TFA is laughable. The Jedi on this show deserve good deaths. Sabine, Hera, and Chopper can live on. Zeb can go either way with me.

    • March 3, 2015 at 7:03 pm

      You mean OT make less and less sense. Because this does not affects PT in any way.

      But in OT is established that the only surviving Jedi are Yoda and Obi-Wan.

      Only OT movies are affected by stories of these series.

  • March 3, 2015 at 1:41 pm

    the whole season they keep on talking during action scenes, thats annoying and takes the tension away, stormtroopers are stupid but not that much. mr inquisitor just stand there with his lighsaber if he had move, kanan couldnt cut it in pieces, lame writing, he just had to go or what?

  • March 3, 2015 at 1:56 pm

    Ashoka turned into a white girl. Wtf

  • March 3, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    I’m not gonna lie ! I actuly teared up during the Ep !

    This was STAR WARS @ it’s purest !

    Thx David Filloni and his whole team !

    The bars been raised JJ : )

  • March 3, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    I loved this… all the plot changes we’ve seen, and most importantly the revelations, but as someone said, it was too fast-paced. the preview made that scene look longer, the music added gave a too-fast seem at the whole thing, but still this was one of the best episodes I’ve seen. also Season 1 as someone stated is a bit like the beginning of episode IV with luke around on Tatooine. Like how they mentioned that season 2 will finally be more war-centered, and more TCW level. Hope they don’t make too many episodes though…

    • March 3, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      I’m hoping that with more episodes that they do what they did in TCW and have part 1 and part2 so there is a better overall story. I agree that the episode was way too quick and the scenes way too short for the story they were telling. I had wished it was a 40 minute mini movie like spark of rebellion

  • March 3, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    I was in tears – when the blockade runners came out it sealed the deal. Wow- we are in good hands friends. Just fun and exciting – very much what we love about Star Wars .

  • March 3, 2015 at 3:31 pm

    Spectacular! It really feels like Star Wars. I was in the theater in “77”, I feel excited. This was great action, great story telling, and beautiful animation.
    I was not a huge fan of the Clone Wars, so I was not really expecting much from Rebels. I am glad I was wrong! Star Wars is back, and I now have faith Disney is going to Honor it’s fans hunger, for the old school.
    Hater’s don’t hate, this is much bigger than you think, I’m so happy we have substance again. Believe in the Force, Believe in the way this is going…Can’t wait for the fall….

    May the Force be with you Always!!!!

  • March 3, 2015 at 3:51 pm

    I loved TCW and I also love Rebels. It’s good to have different characters and witness the Rebellion. It does seem odd that Kannan beat the Inquisitor, but when Freddie Prince Jnr said he was filming the second season, I knew he was going to make it.
    As for Season 2, well Darth Vader needs to up his game and take care of Kannan soon. As for Ahsoka… she has been hidden for 15 years so must be a pretty decent Jedi now. Has she spent any time with Yoda or Obi Wan? If not, why not? She, Kannan and Ezra all need to die for OT to work, and not right at the end, as Tarkin believes all Jedi are extinct, but if it was only a few weeks ago, he would have phrased it differently in ANH. All the Jedi should be captured by Vader, killed mercilessly and publicly and then Leia takes over, introducing some new characters for TFA. I’m looking forward to Season 2, and 3, and 4!
    I cannot wait until Dec 18th either… I love everything Star Wars, except I and II. I only have Episode I on VHS and refuse to upgrade…

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:45 pm

      I still don’t understand how episode 3 is elevated above 1 & 2..

      • March 3, 2015 at 4:55 pm

        Its closer to the OT.

      • March 3, 2015 at 7:06 pm

        All PT movies are awesome.
        EP III is the best star wars movie IMAO.

      • March 6, 2015 at 5:35 am

        Better plot, characterization, dialouge, hell, even special effects, it’s just a better film all around.

  • March 3, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    That lightsaber duel was awesome! This was Dave Filoni sending a message to both George Lucas and the fans that he can do the Ep 1 Darth Maul fight and he can do it BETTER.

    Thank you for this wonderful season Dave!

    And a big thanks to A New Hope for all of your ‘early screenings’ for the fans here at!


    • March 3, 2015 at 4:14 pm

      Darth Maul wasnt in this episode?
      And why Dave Filoni? Hes a executive producer.

    • March 3, 2015 at 4:34 pm

      da hell? Maul hasn’t the “boomerang” feature the inquisitor’s lightsaber does, and that makes it all kinda different… Filoni is the mastermind behind the entire thing, I don’t think he checks directly how single stories go on.. dunno if you understood it…

    • March 3, 2015 at 5:36 pm

      Haha thanks man!

    • March 3, 2015 at 7:08 pm

      Darth Maul fight in EP I is the best fight in whole star wars.

      Waaaaaaaaaaaay better than these.

  • March 3, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    Anyone have a link to the episode?

    • March 4, 2015 at 1:19 am


  • March 3, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    My son actually started to tear up when Ezra fell from the catwalk. As an adult, I knew that there was no way he was dead as the camera didn’t follow his fall. Plus I was reminded of Obi-Wan in TPM. But seeing the emotion in him due to his love for the new characters was rewarding. Not to mention his elation when Kanan killed the Inquisitor and when he heard the vader breath at the end. He reacted to this episode the way I did when I saw the original SW…and so did I. 🙂

  • March 3, 2015 at 7:37 pm

    i thought fulcrum was going to be someone i knew …. but shes from a different cartoon right? never watched clone wars and only watched this cos kids wanted to , no idea who most of these people are. i supose cartoons reference themselves like the films do ….. hope the new film doesnt loose me in an avalanche of things that you only understand if youve seen and read everything else out side of the existing films.

  • March 3, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    “The Emperor has sent an alternative solution.”

  • March 3, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    The episode and season 1 where awesome. I am a big fan of the OT, not of the PT. But regardless of what anyone thinks, I’m eternally greatful to Lucas for making episodes 1-3. Otherwise there would have been no Clone Wars, no Rebels, and no Episode 7.

  • March 3, 2015 at 9:00 pm

    Expect Darth Maul.(Allusions)

  • March 3, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    I’ve liked some of the Rebels episodes. Especially those with good old fashioned Star Wars banter in a cockpit.

    This episode…felt like watching a prequel movie, most of the time. In other words, meh.

  • March 3, 2015 at 11:34 pm

    Well, I must say, I am slightly disappointed.
    This episode was very ok but did not live up to the fuzz they made about it beforehand. I didn’t think that Kanan would die and ofcourse he didn’t. Same goes for Ezra. This time around it never seemed that the rebels were in any jeopardy, so not so much tension there. Well, OT-Lovers might like it that stormtroopers still can’t shoot properly. Guess someone had to die to give that episode more gravity. If they’d iced someone of the main cast, it would have been unexpected. They didn’t. Instead they killed one of the best villains so far way to early.
    So he will return. Yes he will, in some wicked way they will ressurect him. Maybe he’ll get new legs too. I liked the Art-Tie, didn’t expect that. What really didn’t work for me was the one thing I really did look forward to, the return of Ahsoka. WTF? Why the hell does she have to look completely different to the TCW Version? That is worse than the young yoda puppet in the prequels.
    They manage to get a somewhat ok likeness of real actors done but completely fuck up the design of a character that previously only existed in animation and comics? Again – WTF??? Bad decision Filoni, bad decision.

  • March 4, 2015 at 10:50 am

    No episode 7 without the prequels? I find that highly unlikely. I’m glad that the prequels were made so that new film makers could learn from the mistakes of George-boy.

  • March 4, 2015 at 11:24 am

    The visual style in this series is so bad they even managed to screw up the looks of already established animated character – AHSOKA.

    Even the older Ahsoka from CW is better looking than this one! How the hell they managed to mess that up!??

  • March 4, 2015 at 10:03 pm

    I see we’re pretty much all in agreement about the change in Ahsoka’s depiction. She looked nothing like it. That was the only thing that shook me out of the episode.

    It was fantastic otherwise. 10/10.
