Star Wars Rebels Season 2 on Disney XD Animation 06 APR 2016

The first season of Star Wars Rebels was a pretty fun ride. Set fourteen years after Revenge of the Sith and five years before A New Hope, Rebels takes place during an era when the Galactic Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy. Imperial forces are hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights while a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking form.

It introduced us to the hot head, street smart, Ezra (who it turns out, might just make a pretty decent Jedi), the cowboy Jedi and leader of the rebel cell, Kanan, Ghost pilot Hera, the gruff and irritable Zeb, the creative but also good with explosives Sabine, and of course the annoying and slightly broken astromech droid Chopper.

Chased by the relentless Agent Kallus, and then hunted by the brutal Grand Inquisitor (with his awesomely designed lightsaber), the Rebels slowly moved from being a small thorn in the Empire’s toe to a rather large pain in it’s side!

Kanan was forced to wield his lightsaber once more, and as it turned out, became an unwilling mentor when it was shown that Ezra might just have a connection to the force.

Loads of action, tons of nods to franchise and of course lots of awesome guest appearances, season 1 certainly didn’t disappoint – and ended on an absolute thrilling note: the introduction of Lord Vader himself!

So yes. The kids and I are most definitely looking forward to season 2 kicking of on Disney XD!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Cosplay: Ahsoka Tano (Mogu Cosplay) Cosplay 22 SEP 2012

The primary protagonist of 2008’s animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie, Ahsoka Tano gets brought to life in this stunning cosplay by Italian cosplayer Mogu Cosplay (aka Gabriella).

Ahsoka Tano was discovered by Master Plo Koon. Abandoned by her parents she knew little about them and so is raised in the Jedi Temple. She graduates to Padawan at an early age, both due to the ongoing Clone Wars and as an effort by Master Yoda to teach Anakin Skywalker a greater sense of responsibility.

She wields a green lightsaber and wears a Togruta-inspired outfit that includes the akul-tooth headdress (a surprising feat for someone her age).

Ahsoka displays the same type of rash and rebellious behavior that Anakin is known for. She adopts a highly informal attitude towards her new Master and tends to address individuals by nicknames; for example, Anakin is known as “Sky Guy” and R2-D2 is referred to as “Artooey”. Anakin in turn refers to her as “Snips”, in reference to her “snippy” attitude when they first met.

And now you know.
