STAR WARS REBELS Recap: (S04E08) Crawler Commanders

Star Wars Rebels second episode for this week is “Crawler Commandos”. Following on the heels of “Kindred”, this episode was an excellent way to balance out the major revelations that were dropped in “Kindred”. Now taking up camp in the ancient ruins that they were led to in the previous episode, we find Ezra (Taylor Gray),  Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Zeb (Steven Blum), and Ryder attempting to establish communications with Yavin IV. Sabine winds up picking up on a signal that’s not too far away, prompting the group to go and check it out. What they come across is a...

STAR WARS REBELS Recap: (S04E07) Kindred

This week’s first episode of Star Wars Rebels was really alot of fun. We see the introduction of a new bounty hunter and more light is spread on the Lothwolves that have been appearing. “Kindred” really worked to bring the idea that the stakes are getting even bigger to us as viewers and to the characters. The episode opens with Thrawn sending a bounty hunter, Rukh, down to Lothal. I was excited to see Rukh appear because earlier this year at Star Wars Celebration Warwick Davis announced that he would be voicing the character in Star Wars Rebels. Rukh arrives on...

STAR WARS REBELS Recap: (S04E06) Flight of the Defender

The second episode for Star Wars Rebels to air this week was “Flight of the Defender”. Picking up just a little bit after the end “The Occupation”, we see the Ghost Crew and Ryder getting down to business regarding the TIE Defender. A trio of Lothcats joins Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Ezra (Taylor Gray), Zeb (Steven Blum) and Ryder as they do a bit of reconnaissance on an Imperial outpost. Out at Ezra’s old tower, Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and Hera (Vanessa Marshall) are watching the TIE factory. Hera does note that she suspects the Empire will be getting ready for full-scale...

STAR WARS REBELS Recap: (S04E05) The Occupation

Ezra (Taylor Gray) finally returns home to Lothal in Star Wars Rebels‘ episode “The Occupation”. It’s been a long time coming and I definitely don’t think it was disappointing. Ezra and the entire Ghost crew, Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Hera (Vanessa Marshall), and Zeb (Steven Blum), all head back to Lothal with the help of smuggler Vizago who we haven’t seen too much of since season 2. Now running a more above-the-table business off of Lothal, Vizago has the proper Imperial clearances to come and go off the planet as he pleases. This leads to the Ghost...

And we are back with yet another 2-parter for Star Wars Rebels this week with Part 1 and 2 of “In the Name of the Rebellion”. As should be expected, there will be spoilers ahead as we finally get the Ghost crew back together! We open Part 1 with Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Ezra (Taylor Gray), and Sabine (Tiya Sircar) flying into Yavin 4, a more than familiar sight for Star Wars fans. Once they’ve landed, a quick series of events happens. It turns out that Hera (Vanessa Marshall) was away on a quick mission herself. Unfortunately her return...

STAR WARS REBELS Recap: (S04E01-E02) Heroes of Mandalore Pt. 1 and 2

The season premiere for the final season of  Star Wars Rebels brings us to Mandalore, opening with Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Ezra (Taylor Gray), and Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr. ) leading a mission to set Sabine’s father free. As usual, the opening double feature throws us straight into the story. “Heroes of Mandalore Pt. 1 and 2” has me excited for the final season of one of my favorite shows, delivering on so many things I’ve come to enjoy about the show. Sabine and Ezra are scoping out an Imperial installation where they believe Sabine’s father is being held, while elsewhere Kanan...

Disney’s MOANA Released in Māori

Disney’s hit film from November 2016 was the story of Moana, a film that centers around a Polynesian princess, her journey of self-discovery, and her companion Maui. Moana was released earlier this month in the native language of New Zealand, Māori. The idea to translate the original English script into that of Māori came from Taika Waititi, a New Zealand director and writer, who wrote the initial screenplay for Moana (though he is uncredited). The Thor: Ragnarok director approached Disney early on  about translating the film and in the end, his sister Tweedie Waititi, wound up serving as producer for...

STAR WARS REBELS Season 4 Gets New Timeslot

Star Wars Rebels Season 4 was announced earlier this year at Star Wars Celebration 2017 to an excited crowd. With the second trailer having premiered on September 2nd and season 4’s release date set to be Monday, October 16th, it’s no surprise that we have been waiting eagerly to hear what time slot the show would receive. In the past, Star Wars Rebels has aired Saturday nights at 9pm. So when Monday was given as the new air date, we expected 9 pm to be the same time slot. But a longtime publicist for Lucasfilm, Tracy Cannobio, tweeted on...

YouTuber Laurasalwayspottering Shares Love of All Things Harry Potter

If you’re like me, you spend a stupid amount of time on YouTube. And we all know the habit of stumbling onto new YouTubers unexpectedly while video hopping late at night. Which is exactly how I found the YouTuber Laurasalwayspottering (Laura) about 2 years ago. As you can guess, Laura’s YouTube channel is primarily all about Harry Potter. There’s a huge variety of videos from merchandise hauls, vlogs covering Harry Potter events, and vlogs like her most recent: “Spilling the tea on growing up a fangirl”. There’s plenty of content from the past 3 years to check out and...
