Welcome to the Aroundtable's fifth installment in the countdown to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: Rebels (2014-)
Rebels fills the gap between Episode III and Episode IV in the Star Wars films.
It describes a dark time, with the Jedi all but wiped out and the Empire tightening its grip over the galaxy. It’s up to the rag tag group of rebels to spark a rebellion.
It took a few episodes before I joined the Rebel bandwagon (I was still missing The Clone Wars), but I see there’s a lot of potential in this series. The creative team have really nailed the feeling of the original trilogy and I’m really looking forward to what looks like an amazing second season.
