Critic Reviews for Star Wars Rebels Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

All of the nostalgic aural elements that might stir a dormant fan's heart are there, but the prequels had plenty of that. What those films lacked, and Rebels immediately shows off, is characters you can actually buy into.

Unlike the original movie, the series won't be fun for the whole family. But the two-dimensional dialogue, characters and plots should keep sci-fi-minded kids entertained.

One thing that Star Wars Rebels did incredibly well was bring excitement to children and satisfy long-time fans by including designs and references by the late Ralph McQuarrie coupled with action, adventure and lots of humor.

The relationship [between Kanan and Hera] is not the focus of the show; it's the foundation, the other person's commitment a constant background to their every heroic act.

It had a couple of stumbles here and there, but overall, Star Wars Rebels' first season was a rousing success.

Oct 20, 2014 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

The animated series is so well written and the characters so intriguing that adults may enjoy this new addition to the saga as much as kids will.

Oct 20, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Whatever the characters are up to, however cute or sentimental the business, it is smartly designed and cinematically staged, and not hard to enjoy.

[Rebels] is a shipshape, neato-burrito side project that finds the right balance between hype and hyperspace.

Aug 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Rebels, in its unassuming way, looks like it will be a smart and sensitive piece of entertainment.

The Force is indeed strong with this one.

It's a surprisingly tight, focused story clearly backed with a budget way beyond other CGI action cartoons.

Audience Reviews for Star Wars Rebels: Season 1

  • Aug 28, 2019
    This show can't string together the episodes properly and the characters aren't that interesting and they're too cliche.
  • Jan 28, 2019
    The very first three episodes start out pretty well until it gets overly cheesy (thanks to Disney) to the point where you just cringe. And plus, lightsaber fights aren't jerky, they are supposed to be smooth and equally paced. While we're on the lightsaber topic, why is it also so thin? Ok, I'll stop now.

    When it came out, it wanted to target the younger audience and get younger Star Wars fans into the fold. They did a good job with it, and keeping it not as dark as the die hard fans would want, but gave us just enough to want more.

    Somehow the best thing in the Star Wars canon
  • Nov 10, 2018
    Star Wars series is well animated with great characters and a ton of fun.
  • Oct 15, 2018
    a slow start with the first three episode but it starts to pick up when the grand inquisitor shows up.
  • Oct 04, 2018
    It is not fair to compare this show to "The Clone Wars" for it is a different style. The season, however, wasn't as interesting. It had some great moments and some good episodes but it just fell short.

    This show is SOOOOOOO BAAAAAD i cant even express it. It try’s to be a kids show while adding dark themes then immediately switching back to it’s dumb kid show style. There’s no stakes there’s no tension. All it is is woooooow coolightsaber WOOOOOW FUN COLORFUL BATTLE. Such a disappointment

    While it is fun and enjoyable and action packed it seems a lot more childish than the clone wars, and overall not as good as the clone wars.
  • May 31, 2018
    This may not be the clone wars, but at least we are introduced to sabine's character.
