Star Wars Rebels Mid-Season 3 Premiere
Hey guys. I’m back. Well we are little more 24 hours away from the mid-season 3 premiere of Star Wars Rebels. Although for some lucky people reading this, it’s even sooner. So, who’s excited? (Waits for a show of hands) Oh wait, I can’t see any of you. Oh well.
Spoilers ahead. If you have yet to see the trailer, please go to my previous post.
If you’re reading this, then I take it you are excited and looking for more information on it. Obviously you aren’t the only one. While I can’t provide anymore than what’s already been released in the previous days, what I can do is explain my initial reaction to the trailer to you. To keep this as short as possible, I’ll just talk about the main points that stood out to me.
First off, Ezra in what looks to be pajamas. Cool. Not something we’ve seen before. When we have seen him sleeping before, it has been in his standard orange jumpsuit which makes sense. When part of a rebellion, one always has to be dressed and ready to go at a moments notice. So to see Ezra in them is cool and interesting.
Tie Defenders. Cool. Haven’t really seen them before as I’m not much into video games (sadly no time). From what I have heard about them though, when the rebels go up against them, they’re basically dead. As such, I can’t wait to see how they get away from them.
Death troopers and Thrawn, awesome! The question is, where did they come from? Were they on loan to him from Krenic? If so, why did he give them to Thrawn?
Now, even though I am a rebel through and through, I can’t help but like these guys. After all, what good are heroes if they don’t have good villains to fight? After hearing what I have about them (that they are basically the Navy Seals Special Forces guys of this universe), I have to say that they are pretty terrifying. Not as much as Vader or Thrawn, but still up there.
As we thought, Thrawn knows who Fulcrum is, he’s just waiting for the right moment to reveal it and thus kill Kallus. I’ve already told other fans that my money says he’s either dead by season’s end or forced to betray the rebels for his life.
Thrawn getting hands on. Nice to see he’s more than just a tactician. Although for him to do so must mean something’s gone horribly wrong. Can’t wait to see what it is. Also, just putting this out there, but Thrawn training, hot. Still hate him, but hot none the less.
Kanan training Sabine with the Dark Saber, awesome as well. Didn’t think we’d get to see that. I thought that like Ezra learning to use his first saber, it would happen off screen. I don’t know why, but it’s just so cool to see one character training another in anything. Also, where did that whip that Sabine uses to retrieve her saber come from? It looks kind of like a light whip that was used during the Zygerian slave trading arc in The Clone Wars episodes.
Something else it looks like Sabine is using during the trailer is Ezra’s saber during her fight with Fenn Rau. Not sure how or why this happens, but it looks like that is what she is using for whatever reason.
Was that Admiral Yularen and Ezra in a space suit? Cool! Two more things I thought I wouldn’t see in this series.
Now to the grand finale, Obi-Wan “Old Ben” Kenobi. Before I go any further, please just let me say that unlike most, I went into this trailer knowing nothing. To me, him showing was a strong possibility, but not confirmed. After watching various other peoples’ reactions on youtube, I came to learn that apparently I was in the minority and that this information had previously been released. That left me to ask one question, where the heck was I when that happened?
Anyway, seeing him in the end of this trailer obviously confirmed it for me and caused me to really go nuts. It was at this point I was severely grateful I was home alone. My screams as I saw this part…let’s just say that it was a good thing I had something to stuff in my mouth to quiet my screams. Words could not explain how happy I was to see this.
So with that, I thank you all for reading this longer than usual post and AndrewinBelfast for recommending my last one. Thank you so much and I hope to see all of you in my next one with my review of the episode. Bye!
