Star Wars Rebels: Season 3: My Thoughts

Look, I’m going to be honest: Guys, you’re running out of steam on the train.

Star Wars Rebels is going into its 3rd season, which is nice. But honestly, I… I don’t really want to watch it.

No, CALM DOWN. CALM. DOWN.

I’ll wait…

 

 

 

…You calm? We good?

Okay.

It’s just… The characters are all going to have to die by the end of the series. While you can expand on their pasts and make us more familiar with them, sure, go ahead with that, but… I’m getting bored of the show.

I never thought I’d EVER say that about a Star Wars media.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s enjoyable, I love the show, it’s great! But… I can’t watch it much anymore. I read the plot for the Season 3 premiere, and… To be honest, it didn’t excite me all that much. It really didn’t.

This entire show basically became Clone Wars Season 6 during Season 2, and, hey, I love Ahsoka, and Rex and Wolffe and Gregor and Hondo and all them. But I don’t want them to focus too much on those characters. This is a new part of the saga, don’t just jump around.

But knowing the Lothal Rebels’ fates by the end of the show means they’re either going to die, or they’re going to end up on a planet where they spend the rest of their lives.

Another thing to add to this is the fact that Tiya Sircar, Sabine’s VA, confirmed that Ezra and Sabine won’t be in a romantic relationship.

…If you were going to say that, WHY DIDN’T YOU SAY THAT BEFORE WE GOT THIS FAR!?

You have an ENTIRE section of the fandom that ships these two, and you confirm a while LATER that they’re platonic!? Jeez! Why’d you ship tease them in the first place!? I mean, some shows are great because they explore the relationships between people! Sure, if they’re meant to be friends, go with that, but say that before the show airs, or at least when you’re done Season 1!

(Although, credit where it’s due, this is (I think) the first Star Wars pairing to NOT take off. Correct me if I’m wrong in the comments, just in case.)

But all this doesn’t mean I’m giving up on Star Wars in general. Far from that! I’m excited for Rogue One and Episode VIII. I can’t wait to see what they do next for movies and shows.

It’s just… I can’t watch the entire season. Oh, sure, I’ll tune in to the OCCASIONAL episode, but not all of them.  And when this ends, soon, Disney XD won’t have any original animated TV shows that have new episodes.

Gravity Falls? Done. Finished.

Wander Over Yonder? Plug pulled. No 3rd season. (Although that may change.)

Penn Zero? Ending after 3rd season was cancelled, only getting 2 seasons. So that’ll be dead probably by the end of this year. Maybe. I don’t know.

Future-Worm? Actually that show just started so yeah

Pickle and Peanut? Um… No comment.

Star v. The Forces of Evil? To be honest, I hope this stays for a while. I like this show. But it’ll end too someday.

And then there will only be infinite rerun animated shows and the occasional new live action shows.

But back to Star Wars. I really can’t watch the entire season 3. It’ll probably be boring and unsatisfactory most of the time for me, as I’m getting older and this show is mainly directed to… Oh, we’ll go for  7 – 13 year olds. (To be honest, anyone can watch this show.)

I really want to watch the entire season. I really, really do.

But when you know the possible fates, and most of the season just looks uninteresting…

What am we supposed to do?
