Yesterday, an interesting clip from next week’s Star Wars Rebels episode, “Gathering Forces,” was posted on the Star Wars YouTube channel. Keep in mind, this episode is part two of “Empire Day,” picking up where that evil cliffhanger left off.
Happy Empire Day! Or is next week Empire Day, when Part 2 airs? Whatever. Either way, everyone in Lothal is half stoked, half scared to death as the entire planet and their 24 loyal occupants, five of which are on the Ghost crew, celebrate a wonderful holiday in which the Empire shows off its scary […]
Out of Darkness Directed by: Steward Lee Written by: Kevin Hopps In this aptly titled episode, it was the mysterious and criminally underused female members of the Ghost crew who finally stepped into the spotlight for 22 minutes.

But no one was prepared for the sensational, adorable, lumpy ball of fur known as […]
Kid, we’re about to let everyone review Star Wars Rebels on Twitter. Okay, so I’m semi-quoting an episode that I haven’t even seen yet, but I’m trying.
