If you aren’t watching Star Wars Rebels, boy are you missing out. This season we’ve seen everything from Admiral Thrawn, Maul, The Bendu, Ryloth, a YT-2400, Saw Gerrera, Imperial Supercommandos, Dathomir, the Darksaber, Mon Mothma, and even Kenobi.
Soon I’m going to give my thoughts on the entire season and what I personally took from it but I wanted to share our Zero Hour experience.
Last week we traveled up to San Francisco and were able to attend a screening of Twin Suns and Zero Hour.
It was an experience that I don’t take for granted and decided to make the most of. I piled my family in the car, grabbed a Monster and some trail mix, and road tripped up there. We arrived just in time and took our seats.
The episodes and event was such a whirlwind that unfortunately I didn’t even grab a pic!! And we had our season 3 stuff!!
Well, on to the episodes themselves. Twin Suns has already aired but the Zero Hour finale remains.
As for my impressions here are a few.
I really wish I could watch every episode on the big screen. Seeing the show like that really lets me appreciate the detail in the modeling and animation. I particular the Twin Suns episodes had such stark lighting that I was able to really see every dirty sand swept detail on the Ezra and Chop models.
I definitely don’t want to spoil anything for anyone but I will say that there’s a particular character that I’ve never been the biggest fan of that really gets to shine here. While Rebels is no stranger to wonderful and talented voice work, there are a few performances in these episodes that swing from the rafters and shine strong.
Star Wars Rebels continues to bring something unexpected to a plot we all think we know the ending to! Season 3 is no different, We know Chopper Base is at risk but there are definitely a few surprises to be seen!
For now, that’s all I’ll say but I’ll definitely be talking a lot more about this after the episodes air.
We stayed the night and decided to make the best of our little road trip. What follows are a few pics of us. I know very few are Star Wars related but please enjoy them anyway!
Tomorrow Zero Hour will be here and I hope you all enjoy it like we did!
May the Force be with you!
