11. Star Wars Rebels

Imagine every day you live under the Empire’s evil reign. As a rule, people living under oppressive regimes and despotic leaders typically revolt. In summary, that’s one of the primary aspects makes Star Wars Rebels so amazing.

Set during the timeline between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the era of Star Wars Rebels is fairly bleak. Until the Jedis start to build the rebellion. Bridging the gap was so important to Lucasfilms that, according to an EW interview with executive producer Simon Kinberg, many of “artist Ralph McQuarrie’s decades-old and previously unused concept art for aliens, planet and vehicles.”

If you missed this series it’s highly recommended. Just picture a similar crew and rowdiness to Firefly. Maybe even something akin to The A-Team or the classic Robin Hood example. Better yet, this cartoon is a longer, Star Wars version of Red Dawn. “Wolverines!”

Perhaps the greatest aspect Star Wars Rebels is the introduction of Kanan, a Jedi who survived the purge of Order 66, and Ezra, a padawan learning how to use the Force. Their interaction as master and padawan is deliciously intertwined with various themes throughout the Star Wars universe.

Last but not least, one episode title “The World Between Worlds” uncovers some details about the Lothal temple that has properties similar to time travel.
