Just watched the premiere of STAR WARS REBELS

I had heard only insanely good things about Star Wars Rebels: the latest animated series taking place in that galaxy far, far away.  It's also the first real Star Wars production since Disney took over the franchise.  And additionally, it's the first installment of Star Wars since the new canon policy was announced earlier this past spring.  The gist of that being: anything that Disney does with Star Wars from now on is canonical so far as the lore goes.

Tonight was the premiere episode, an hour-long special titled "Spark of Rebellion".

What did I think of it?

Star Wars Rebels is already the most fun, the most unadulterated, the most mature, and purest Star Wars experience that I've enjoyed in a very, very, very long time.

 I can't think of a single thing that I didn't like about this.  Where the prequels failed, Star Wars Rebels is already succeeding.  Eventually it didn't register with me that I was watching a computer-animated series.  This is Star Wars the way it should always be.

It will be two years ago this month that the announcement came about Disney taking over Lucasfilm and its properties.  A lot of people wondered then... and have since... what was going to become of this beloved saga now that it was at the Mouse House.

Based on what I saw tonight: be of good cheer, friends.  Star Wars is in good hands.  And it may be in the best shape that it's ever been in yet.
