Trivia

The ignited light-saber blades in this series flicker like they did in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) when a rotating glowing rod was used during filming as a practical effect. Afterwards, special lighting effects were added to the blades, and glowing rods were replaced by solid pipes in all of the sequels and prequels But for this show, Lighting and Visual Effects Supervisor Joel Aron studied the light-sabers in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), and even managed to match the original flicker rate to make the light-sabers look exactly like they did in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).

A pretty good cartoon.
5 October 2014 | by steve-124-181083See all my reviews

This is never a great reason to post a review, but there are about 4 reviews on this page that are insane fanboy drivel and I feel a need to balance them out.

The bad: -The trailer literally ruins every single plot point of the first couple episodes. Do not watch it if you have not already.

-It prominently features some kind of energy slingshot that has no precedent and just calls to mind Dennis the menace... every time its shown I SMH and sigh.

-It's not forging any kind of particular new ground

-It's subtly sexist in the same ways everything from Disney is

The good: -While it's not doing anything new, it is pleasant and interesting enough to keep my attention

-The main character is a likable scamp

-Blaster fire, the evil empire, tie fighters, explosions, and moments of cleverness are sprinkled throughout.

In summary: The show is not mind blowing, but it is a cartoon ostensibly aimed at kids so I wouldn't expect it to be. Holding it to standards like 'they were totally running around outside of cover' or 'they didn't characterize the stormtroopers' are insane.

This is a kids show, dwelling on the faceless people that are getting slaughtered or the threat of imminent death aren't conducive to a positive kid-friendly tone. The heroes will win, the bad guys will lose, but that doesn't mean there can't be some fun bits in the middle.

Hopefully, given time it will begin to evolve as the clone wars did. That show got a bit more serious and intriguing, but it ultimately fizzled out before getting great. Perhaps Lucas Arts has learned from that and will jump to more intricate plot lines quickly and stay there for the duration.

Star wars has never been original, it's a comfortable old universe with comfortable old themes. Star Wars Rebels fits in just fine. Would I like a gritty 'realistic' star wars show? Yes I would. But is this still watchable and pleasant? Yes it is.
