Star Wars: Rebels “Hera’s Heroes”

“Hera’s Heroes” is a meat and potatoes sort of Rebels episode; and there’s nothing wrong with that. The Imperials have made a base on Ryloth. To deepen the humiliation, there HQ is Cham Syndulla’ s home. Hera feels the need to return so she can retrieve a family heirloom. To some this may sound silly, […]

Star Wars: Rebels “The Antilles Extraction”

This is the first time I ever heard a Star Wars character speak with a Southern accent. It’s not at all out of place when you consider a lot of galaxies have a South.

Jane (Shailene Woodley) moves to Monterrey, California […]
