Critic Reviews for Star Wars Rebels: Season 1

All Critics (10) | 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.

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.

October 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.

October 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.

Star Wars Rebels is a stellar first season - one that both promises great things to come while also appealing to all generations of Star Wars fans - even if it sometimes heads into more kid-oriented territory then it's predecessor.
