“Rebels” is a fun “Star Wars” show that provides a snapshot of the “Star Wars” galaxy in the immediate years before the Battle of Yavin.
Unlike “Clone Wars,” which covered lots of different characters, “Rebels” focuses on a handful of rebels (as you’d expect) as they learn of, then join, the broader rebellion.
“Clone Wars” got a seventh and final season. I hope “Rebels” gets the same opportunity. There are rich stories to be told as Sabine and Ahsoka search for Ezra. Also, what happened to Thrawn!? There’s no way his fate can be left open ended.
I’ll say it: “Clone Wars” had higher highs, but “Rebels” is better overall.
