Rebels Review: Ezra and Zeb in Droids in Distress

Mitchell Stein: I couldn’t be more thrilled to see that Star Wars is back on television in animated series form once again, although not quite in any way we’ve ever experienced it before.

The series stars Ezra, a “street rat” who accidentally gets recruited along with a band of misfits who have the same mission as him as they rebel against the Imperial army and fight for justice. Although this series has no connection to any story arc in the ever expanding Star Wars universe, there hasn’t been one that felt so bound with the original trilogy in years. While The Clone Wars was great and fun, Star Wars Rebels takes the die-hard fans closer to the original trilogy and to many fans’ fondest films. It kind of bridges the arc between the two film trilogies, and along with The Clone Wars, really succeeds in it’s awesome story.

Star Wars Scrapbook: Star Wars Kid

Greetings Bothans! What follows is a post about the Star Wars memories of a long time fan, Stuart Tullis. Reminisce about battles set in a galaxy far, far away, at a time that we have long passed, with characters, creatures, and stories we shall always love. Many of you will know Stuart, a fan of RebelForce Radio, but he is also a podcaster over at TechnoRetro Dads, so be sure to check that out! With that, I’ll let Stuart take us a long time ago, to a galaxy far, far away…. ~ Bethany Blanton

Star Wars Scrapbook

On a warm night in northeastern Kentucky, three kids sat atop hood of the family car, captivated by the characters on the screen at the drive-in movie.  Although the sound came from a small speaker on the pole beside the car and the picture on the screen paled in comparison to today’s high definition resolution, the sights and sounds they saw that night would be forever imprinted on their minds as well as the minds of hundreds of millions of both children and adults since 1977.  And though I don’t remember whether I was four or five at the time (my age is dependent on whether my mother’s recollection that we saw it in 1977 is correct or my brother’s insistence that it was 1978 is the year), what I do remember is that I wanted to see more of that “galaxy far, far away”.

I am a Star Wars kid.  Everyone was a Star Wars kid in the late ‘70s.  We reenacted that movie in the basement, in the backyard, at school, at our friends’ homes, in the park, at the camp, and at the playground.  Before we had any official Star Wars toys, we shot stormtroopers with tree-branch blasters and had lightsaber duels with sticks, tubes, and vuvuzelas.  We quoted lines (and probably misquoted lines), pretended we were on the run from the Empire’s sinister agents, and jumped off walls into homemade trash compactors.  We wondered about the Clone Wars, imagining a younger Obi-Wan Kenobi with the father of Luke Skywalker flying their spaceships on missions as directed by their commander Bail Organa.  When we played dodgeball at school, we thought we could hear the voice of Obi-Wan telling us to “use the Force” as we prepared to throw the ball.  Car rides were especially exciting, since the car behind us was most certainly a TIE fighter in disguise, waiting for the right moment to fire at us.  Star Wars was everywhere because we took it with us in our minds.
