This is Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. I regret to report that both the Jedi and the Republic have fallen, with the dark shadow of the Empire rising to take their place. This message is a warning and s reminder for any surviving Jedi: Trust in the force. Do not return to the Temple. That time has passed, and our future is uncertain. We will each be challenged. Our trust. Our faith. Our friendship. But we must persevere and in time a new hope will emerge. May the force be with you. Always.

From two animated series, to books, video games and a slew of merchandising, Lucasfilm has milked every last ounce out of the once compelling 'Clone Wars' era of the 'Star Wars' saga over the last decade. As a result, it is now utterly demystified. Might the same be in store for the era in between the sagas? We'll soon see.
'Rebels: Spark of Rebellion' is a welcome change, recapturing the tone and spirit of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy in a way the prequels and the 'Clone Wars' never quite did. It's not just the superficial aesthetic, this actually *feels* like 'Star Wars'. This first pilot movie episode feels a bit rushed at times, and definitely would've benefited from a feature-length runtime, but what we get is a fun, fast moving adventure that features likable characters and a compelling set-up. Hopefully it can maintain a tighter overall narrative focus than the occasionally slapdash 'Clone Wars'. So far, so good.
