Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels aired season 2 episode 1, titled The Lost Commanders, on October 14, 2015. In preparation for this week’s new episode, GeekGirl Lacey and I recapped and reviewed what happened the last time we saw our favorite animated Rebels.
We discussed the sensation of loners not actually wanting to be alone, whether or not we would ever trust a clone, and gave a shout out to Star Wars: Kanan: The Last Padawan by Greg Weisman, who we interviewed earlier this year.
Something from our recap that ironically ended up on the chopping room floor was our description of Chopper, the crew of the Ghost’s droid. Chopper reminds me of Lacey because he is strong-willed, sassy, a bit temperamental, and extraordinarily loyal. One thing I love about Star Wars Rebels is how relateable the characters are, whether you’re a child or an adult (or an alien from a galaxy far, far away). It makes me genuinely root for the characters, and leaves me caring what’s going to happen next!
