User Reviews

A spark that becomes a flame.
8 October 2020 | by A_Kind_Of_CineMagicSee all my reviews

Following 4 little introductory short mini episodes this is the first full episode and is actually a double episode. We get the meeting between Ezra Bridger, scavenger youth, and the crew of rebels who steal from Imperial forces. Kanan, Hera, Zeb and Chopper are introduced as characters well and Ezra has the intriguing introduction as we see that he has the force.

The animation is way below the standards of Clone Wars sadly and there are bits that are very much cartoonish but overall this shows great potential with nice characters, fun action and a promising Jedi power story.

Very enjoyable episode and it has a great start with Darth Vader giving dark instructions to his agent 'The Inquisitor'.

Good opening to the season.

My rating: 8/10.
