Rebels Review: How Spark of Rebellion is Similar to the Original Trilogy

Why Star Wars Rebels is the Closest Production to the Original Trilogy in Many Years

SparkofRebellionDisney XD’s latest show Star Wars Rebels officially aired last week, and fans tuned into the show not really knowing what to expect from this new chapter of Star Wars. With a completely new cast of characters and stories, we were uncertain of the outcome of this show. I think it’s safe to say that most fans were pretty blown away with what was witnessed on-screen.

Setting up a new chapter in the ever expanding Star Wars universe was a bold and dangerous move, one that Disney executed wonderfully with this new series. This new adventure takes place in a dark period of Jedi history, following the attacks of the Jedi council and the rise of Darth Vader. These unlikely Rebels come together to rebel against the Imperial army and fight for justice and freedom. Even though Darth Vader and the Emperor exist in this timeline, there have been no sightings of either of them yet, but they have left their mark on the galaxy at large, and this new show shows the effect that it had on a much wider spectrum, and on a larger scale. It’s not quite as dark as The Revenge of the Sith set out to be, and it’s been toned to appeal to more of a family audience, but it still gets the message across well enough. These Star Wars television series are so fantastic, it makes me wonder why Lucas didn’t move from the original trilogy straight to the television series.

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.
