Star Wars: Rebels is coming to a close, and I am as happy as a pig in slop to be able to view the final episodes of that show. Look… the franchise has made a few bad choices of late, and if they let Rebels go out with a bang, then I feel it will redeem some of the stuff they have been putting out (*cough cough last jedi cough*) in a way.
So, where is it going to go? This is the question that we were all asking at the end of the previous episodes. There is so much plot and story here, and Disney has indeed made some mistakes in the past. But listen, the episode A World Between Worlds was quite a mind-blowing one. The idea of time traveling is one which has been beaten into the ground by so many shows and films, it almost didn’t seem right for Star Wars to use it. But I have to hand it to those who were involved in the creation of this show: they did it right. “Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.” And an episode like that is a beacon of hope within the sea of madness that is the new trilogy. I am not here to bash the old, though, I am here to give praise to the new. Rebels was a good show, and I had a lot of fun following it since 2015. I knew going in that it is a Disney show, and that I shouldn’t expect it to be anything special, Star Wars-wise. I knew that it is a kids show, and there is nothing wrong with that in my opinion. I am not some hate-mongering dumbass. Like with any show, there was some filler and some unnecessary, meh-grade stuff. I get it, you need that sometimes. Not every show can be awesome from beginning to end. Almost none of them are. But there is something about that third act. If you are able to finish a show properly, and really give the audience a proper send-off, this will be something which you will remember the show by. You gotta wow them at the end of it all, and if you are able to do that, you can be very successful at leaving your mark on the world of entertainment. I sincerely hope that the end of Rebels will be awesome. Time will tell.
