Jaded by the needless and poorly executed backstory of Star Wars Episodes I through III, I had all but lost interest in a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. On the other hand, a band of rebels fighting an empire threatening to homogenize their way of life will always appeal to me.
Disney's Star Wars Rebels is set five years before Episode IV: A New Hope, a.k.a. Star Wars (1977), and focuses on a band of rebels led by Jedi incognito Kanan Jarrus. In the first episode, Kanan and the crew of the starship Ghost, steal food from the Empire, picking up Force-sensitive boy Ezra Bridger in the process. Remind anyone else of Firefly? Of course I'm tuning in again.
