If there was every any doubt that my kids were fans of Star Wars Rebels, that doubt flew out the door on Friday. Our friends at Disney Home Entertainment sent us a very special box with Star Wars Rebels goodies and a copy of the new Star Wars Rebels Blu-Ray. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that I should always have the camera rolling when it comes to my kids and Star Wars, and Friday was no exception. Immediate shouts of "Blaster! Blaster" and "LIGHTSABER!!"
Quincy is a Master Jedi by the way, don't judge her by her size.
and of course, Alan almost immediately putting the Star Wars Rebel Blu-Ray on to watch. Because Star Wars.
Yup. We're fans. After watching Season Two on Disney XD, it was nice to have all 22 episodes at our disposal to watch whenever we want.
Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Two delivers all 22 action-packed episodes of the hit CG animated series’ second season, plus exclusive, never-before-seen bonus material on DVD and even more exclusive footage on Blu-ray! Available August 30, this thrilling continuation of the Star Wars Rebels saga depicts the continued efforts of the crew of the starship Ghost to defeat the evil Empire.
Amid growing Imperial oppression on Lothal, the rebels are forced to seek out new allies throughout the galaxy and additional resources to sustain their fight against the Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost bands together with a secret rebel cell and ex-soldiers from the Clone Wars to join a fledgling alliance determined to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.
As Ezra continues his journey to become a Jedi under Kanan’s guidance, the threat of the dark side looms large over the fate of the growing rebellion. Darth Vader himself will dispatch new Inquisitors to snuff any spark of resistance, setting the stage for a climactic showdown in which past lives will be revealed, terrible truths will be discovered, and the lives of our heroes will be changed forever.
