REBELS REVISITED: 5 ESSENTIAL SABINE WREN EPISODE

Looking for a way to introduce Star Wars Rebels to your friends? Or perhaps you’d like to revisit key moments from the series before it returns? Look no further than Rebels Revisited.
Over the next four weeks, we’ll be providing five episodes worthy of a re-watch (or a first watch) all centered around the journey of one member of the Ghost crew — to get  swtor credits you back into that Rebels state of mind. In case you missed it, check out the first post on Ezra Bridger.
In this installment… Sabine Wren, whose art helped accelerate the spark of rebellion across the galaxy and whose heart helped her to overcome a difficult past. Sabine has become the very model of a modern Mandalorian over four seasons of Star Wars Rebels, and these episodes depict her growth beautifully.

1. “Blood Sisters” (Season 2, Episode 8)
Sabine’s murky past begins to clear up when she encounters her old friend Ketsu Onyo. They soon find themselves on opposite sides when Sabine discovers they’re after the same…

6 HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE STAR WARS REBELS MID-SEASON FOUR TRAILE

Our first glance at the last we’ll see of Star Wars Rebels has arrived. The stakes have never been higher, and the fight has never been as perilous.


But the Ghost crew has never been more united. And this trailer balances those growing stakes with their determination to fight the Empire. There are moments of despair, revelation, and hope. These are the six that stood out to me.

1. Ezra’s journey.
More than anything else, Rebels has been the story of Ezra Bridger. And this trailer does a fantastic job of grounding you in his story before offering visions of his future. From his first steps into the larger world of the Force, to his (thankfully) brief dark side temptation, to his growing beyond himself to befriend clones, Loth-cats, and others throughout his travels, the opening to this trailer makes me thankful for such a fantastic Star Wars character, and swtor credits  excited for what’s to come.


2. My Emperor.
My Imperial heart leapt for joy when the unmistakable voice of Ian McDia…

STAR WARS: BEST OF 2017

For Star Wars, this was a year of new experiments, the release of highly-anticipated sequels, and a few surprises. And porgs, of course. In this special feature, the writers of StarWars.com look back on highlights from throughout 2017.


Star Wars Rebels Ups the Stakes and Barrels Toward Its Conclusion
Between the second half of Season Three and the beginning of Season Four, Star Wars Rebels gave fans some incredible moments. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at executive producer Dave Filoni several times. We saw characters introduced in 2016, like Thrawn and Saw Gererra, become more defined and more terrifying. Thrawn’s domination and eventual defeat of the rebels have brought us to Yavin and closer to the events of Rogue One. Sabine helped put the Darksaber into the hands of Bo-Katan Kryze and give Mandalore its first real leader in years. To the delight of fans (and, of course, myself), 2017 also saw the first on-screen kiss between Hera and Kanan. You could practically hear the fandom …

TAKING A STAR TOURS TRIP TO CRAIT, BATUU, AND MORE AT DISNEY’S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

On November 17, a group of select journalists were invited to experience the latest update to the popular Star Tours attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It was an opportunity to visit one of the newest locations in the Star Wars universe, Crait, along with more locations and surprises. Not only did Star Tours deliver, but also so did Hollywood Studios, which showcases a bevy of Star Wars themed opportunities for fans and theme park goers alike. StarWars.com went along for the ride.


Early in the morning, we went through the front gates of the theme park (before it was open to the general public), and headed straight for Star Tours. As the ride started, and our StarSpeeder left the hangar, Rey could be seen in the distance as we made a quick exit through a barrage of First Order TIEs and Star Destroyers. Our first stop (Star Tours has randomized different locales in the Star Wars universe since May 2011) led to Jakku (which has been an option on the attraction since November 2015…

HOW JEDI CHALLENGES BRINGS STAR WARS TO LIFE AT HOME

For anyone who has ever loved Star Wars video games — or even just loved the Star Wars films — there’s really been only one dream: to experience Star Wars as if you were in it. As if it was real. To hold a lightsaber in your hands and battle Darth Vader, standing before you. Or even to play the monster-filled holographic game from Star Wars: A New Hope — the one that we learn inspires Chewbacca to pull droids’ arms out of their sockets.

With Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, we’re a step closer to that dream. (Droids beware.)

Available today for $199.99, Jedi Challenges from Lenovo and Disney is a smartphone-powered augmented reality experience and a wonder to play. Included out of the box are a headset, lightsaber controller, and tracking beacon. Download the official app, put your phone in the headset, turn on the tracking beacon (which tells the app where your floor is, literally grounding the visuals), grab your Jedi weapon, and you’re off. StarWars.com got to try out Jedi Challenges‘ t…
