A Brief Guide to the Long, Ever-Changing History of How Star Wars Has Portrayed Mandalorians 

A Brief Guide to the Long, Ever-Changing History of How <i>Star Wars</i> Has Portrayed Mandalorians 

From the Holiday Special to The Mandalorian , the Star Wars race that counts Boba and Jango Fett among its numbers has a long history in and out of the narrative of the galaxy far, far away. It’s one that Star Wars has long been enamored with—but its portrayal has ebbed and flowed in fascinating ways over the last four decades. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Star Wars Rebels Reminds Us What A Badass Grand Moff Tarkin Is

<i>Star Wars Rebels</i> Reminds Us What A Badass Grand Moff Tarkin Is

Wilhuff Tarkin is definitely having a moment in the Star Wars Universe. The novel Tarkin revealed the biography of Emperor Palpatine's most valuable military officer, and now Star Wars Rebels is reinforcing the idea that if one man could have snuffed out the fledgling Rebellion, it would be Tarkin.

I must say, between the Empire scenes in Star Wars Rebels and the Tarkin novel, I sort of...

Princess Leia Appeared on Star Wars Rebels, Complete With Her Trademark Authority

Princess Leia Appeared on <i>Star Wars Rebels</i>, Complete With Her Trademark Authority

Star Wars Rebels returned Wednesday for the back half of its second season and it did so with a major player joining the show. Welcome Princess Leia Organa. Even in animated form, her highness is still a commanding presence.

At this point in the Star Wars story, Leia appears to normal people as a servant of the Empire. She’s just a Princess and Senator from Alderaan with the expected galactic...

Sam Witwer Is Surprised and Delighted to Keep Returning to His Major Star Wars Role

Sam Witwer Is Surprised and Delighted to Keep Returning to His Major <i>Star Wars </i>Role

Just when you think you’re out, the galaxy far, far away keeps pulling you right back in.

Yesterday, I shared the now-infamous clip from Solo where Witwer reprises his vocal role as the formerly-Darth Maul, dubbing over Ray Park in order to bring the character to live action in a way that preserves continuity with the animated shows, where Witwer’s Maul has brought new life to the character....

PSA: You Can Now Watch an All-Ahsoka Tano Cut of Star Wars: Rebels

PSA: You Can Now Watch an All-Ahsoka Tano Cut of <i>Star Wars: Rebels</i>

Longtime readers know how much Ahsoka Tano means to me . She’s been one of the consistent highlights of the modern Star Wars canon, throughout two cartoons, an upcoming revival , and a novel.

If you’re eager to experience just the most Ahsoka-y parts of Star Wars, the Rebels YouTube channel has you covered: they recently posted a lengthy video that serves as a compilation of all of the former...

Much like the former Jedi herself, this ring is both ingenious and very likely to inflict a world of pain should you ever find yourself in a scrap .

Yes, so last night's season finale of Star Wars Rebels contained a big reveal, one that we've been hoping we'd see for a while. But there was much more to the finale, including some massive changes for our core characters, the return of Darth Vader, and one Jedi turning into a genuine badass.

Ahsoka Will Be the Gandalf of Star Wars Rebels 

Ahsoka Will Be the Gandalf of <i>Star Wars Rebels</i> 

Along with this epic trailer—which is apparently mostly scenes from just the first half of the season—the cast and crew of Star Wars Rebels dropped by New York Comic Con to talk about Ahsoka’s reappearance and a new villain, voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

As the trailer makes clear, Gellar’s Seventh Sister Inquisitor is a formidable foe for the crew of the Ghost. Gellar described...

Star Wars Rebels Just Gave Us A Glimpse At "The Future Of The Force"

<i>Star Wars Rebels</i> Just Gave Us A Glimpse At "The Future Of The Force"

The Inquisitors were finally back on the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, and they had a whole new mission: They were on the hunt for Force-sensitive babies, and it was up to the Rebels to stop them.

What’s a “Force-sensitive” baby? Well, it’s a child who is strong with the Force and, under the old Jedi Order, would have been identified and trained as a Jedi. But, as we know, there aren’t...

A Key Piece of Star Wars History Gets A Rebels-Centric Origin Story

A Key Piece of <i>Star Wars</i> History Gets A <i>Rebels-</i>Centric Origin Story

Everyone knows the X-Wing. Some people maybe even know the Y-Wing. But A and B Wings? They’re definitely the lesser know Rebel Alliance ships and on the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, we found out exactly how the B-Wing first came into play, with a lot of help from Hera Syndulla.

The episode, Wings of the Master, set up a very simple goal. The Empire was starving a planet with a trade...

The Clone Wars Once Again Bleed Into The Story on Star Wars Rebels

<i>The Clone Wars</i> Once Again Bleed Into The Story on <i>Star Wars Rebels</i>

The latest episode of Star Wars Rebels season two is a perfect example of how, as good a show as this is, it’s not great at maintaining momentum. After last week’s game-changer of an episode, that storyline was put on pause for a tangent that didn’t feel wholly motivated.

Brothers of the Broken Horn started with Ezra a bit on the grumpy side. He doesn’t want to train as a soldier, he doesn’t...

Star Wars Rebels' Second Season Kicks Off With a Great Steven Spielberg Homage

<i>Star Wars Rebels</i>' Second Season Kicks Off With a Great Steven Spielberg Homage

In Star Wars Rebels season one, the best episodes were the ones where our heroes were in action that moved the overall story ahead. The lesser ones were bottle episodes where characters were defined, but the mythology wasn’t expanded. Season two started off with the perfect mix of both.

In “The Lost Commanders” (the first episode of the second season after this summer’s mini-movie The Siege of...

Even Animated, Lando Calrissian Is As Smarmy As Ever On Star Wars Rebels

Even Animated, Lando Calrissian Is As Smarmy As Ever On <i>Star Wars Rebels</i>

Billy Dee Williams is back! A young Lando Calrissian snares the Ghost crew in his latest scheme. Yes, long before The Empire Strikes Back, Lando was a smooth-talking rogue — and you couldn't trust him as far as you could throw him. It's a pity no one tries to throw him, actually.

Zeb, let's talk. If you're going to play cards as a means of buying food and fuel for your shipmates, cheat. I...

Star Wars Just Gave Us an Epic Confrontation Without Any Blasters or Lightsabers

<i>Star Wars </i>Just Gave Us an Epic Confrontation Without Any Blasters or Lightsabers

In a Star Wars movie, there’s only so much the characters can do (for now ). It’s got to be sweeping, it’s got to be epic, it’s got to be full of action. On the other hand, Star Wars Rebels is where things can get weird in that galaxy far, far away—and last night, that’s exactly what happened.

The episode, called “The Honorable Ones,” did something we’ve rarely, if at all, ever seen in Star...
