Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels is full of drama and emotion! GeekGirl Lacey and I recently watched Legends of the Lasat (which aired February 3, 2016) and we just had to discuss it. We explored Zeb‘s flourishing character development, from being the tough muscle of the group to a complex character with a fascinating past. We also predicted what we think might happen next to our misfit gang of Rebels as they continue in their mission to make the universe a better, safer place— one free of the tyrannies of the Empire.
For a full recap and review of the episode, check out our video below:
One of the things I loved best about this episode was the magic and mysticism. Even though Star Wars has its own set of spectacular phenomena (like the Force, for instance), it’s not something we often get to see in a franchise widely known for its action packed fight sequences. (Not a bad thing— this is Star Wars, after all.) In fact, the fantastical element to Zeb’s journey of finding a new for his people reminded me of a quest you’d expect to see in Star Trek: the Next Generation. The beautiful shots of space coupled with legends and tradition made for a refreshing and interesting episode.
