It all comes down to this! Star Wars: Rebels has now aired its series finale -- the finale The Clone Wars never got. As we say farewell to the crew of the Ghost and the good people on both sides of the microphones who gave us this series, I think it's time to reflect on … Continue reading Star Wars: Rebels – “A Fool’s Hope” and “Family Reunion – and Farewell”
It's the penultimate Star Wars: Rebels post for this blog! No, really... after this, there's only the grand finale remaining. That means some questions get answered, some answers get new questions, old friends return, as do older enemies, and power of the Force teeters in the balance. As always, spoilers ahead. You've been warned. Thanks … Continue reading Star Wars: Rebels – “Wolves and a Door” and “A World Between Worlds”
Warning: Spoilers Ahead. From the beginning of Star Wars: Rebels, we always knew the crew of the Ghost would hook up with larger Rebel cells and eventually find their way into the core of the Rebellion as we saw it take shape in the events of the original trilogy.

It’s a measured response to criticisms and remarks I’ve heard constantly over the years, so much so that I’ve decided whenever I’m asked again, I’ll just hand off a link to … Continue reading Star Wars Prequel Appreciation

Most recently known for his contributions such as Darth Plagueis and Tarkin, Luceno has stepped up to the task. It's always good to have Luceno at the helm for one of … Continue reading Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno
Fans of The Clone Wars, rejoice! 8 more undeveloped episode scripts from Katie Lucas have been masterfully transformed into a novel that unleashed the full storytelling potential of the series. May it not be the last such story treatments we get. Some loose ends continue to be explored in Rebels, but for the rest, novels … Continue reading Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden
