George Lucas is turning 73! Without him, we wouldn’t be here today still talking about Star Wars, it’s all thanks to him! We owe him so much and I’ll forever be grateful for these brilliant movies he has given us! Happy Birthday George Lucas!
We have news for you, I have finally changed the address to the site and it is now themidichloriancenter.wordpress.com
All the old links in fanofstarwars.wordpress.com will now automatically redirect to the new one. It will need a few days or weeks for the change to be done in the Google research tool so the old address is redirecting to the new one and it will continue to do so even after so you don’t have to worry about finding the new address.
May the Force be with you!
Star Wars Rebels returns this Saturday with a hour event featuring the Ghost crew helping Saw Gerrera on Geonosis! In the trailer, you can hear Bail Organa’s voice asking Hera to go on Geonosis. From the looks of it, a lot of things will happen in these two episodes and it will be a good bridge for Saw Gerrera’s story between The Clone Wars, Rebels and Rogue One.

Most recently we saw Saw Gerrera in Rogue One and before that in The Clone Wars, we reported few days ago that he would also appear on Star Wars Rebels on January 7, now EW has a featurette of Saw appearance in Rebels along with a little sneak peek of the episode. Good news is Forest Whitaker is reprising his role in the series! You can watch the video here.
Twitter user Rebels Reactions has found a new Rebels in his Toys R’Us that reveals Saw Gerrera will appear in this series! And he will wear the same outfit as in Rogue One and will be bald like in the opening flashback scene of the movie.

You can already watch ‘The Last Battle’ on the Disney WATCH app or watch it tonight on Disney X.D.
This episode was written by clone wars veteran Brent Friedman and directed by another clone wars veteran – Bosco Ng. It was full of feels from The Clone Wars and this was absolutely fantastic! It was an action-packed episode sending us right into the battle. We got battle droids, droidekas, Neimoidian shuttles, a Super Tactical Droid, a Separatist Supply Ship, Rex and some themes from The Clone Wars. This episode was the best tribute they could do to this Emmy-award winning series. At the end when the Star Wars Rebels logo appeared it was colored like the TCW one with the music intro from the TCW episodes!
The episode is titled ‘The Last Battle’ for a very good reason, in a way this episode featured the last battle from the clone wars. The episode opened with Rex, Zeb, Kanan, Chopper and Ezra going on Agamar (new planet on Rebels, always great to see something else than Lothal!) to pick up some proton bombs from an old Separatist ship except that this ship still had functional battle droids that hadn’t been deactivated and their leader, a Super Tactical Droid wanted to finish his clone wars and do one last battle to see which side was the strongest. Leaving the rebels no choice but to accept the Droid’s challenge. Rex, Kanan and Ezra had to fight their way to the Super Tactical Droid to rescue Rex. Let’s just say all this action sequence was amazing! It was like being in TCW again, a truly action-packed episode! After all these years, Rex is still Rex, he was badass as always, a great leader! We even got a mention of CODY!
Ezra made both Rex and the Super Tactical Droid realize that none of them had won the clone wars when it ended, the Empire did (or to be more precise Palpatine but they don’t know anything about all his demoniac schemes and how he orchestrated it all), they weren’t meant for this war and he made them end it. Two enemies becoming allies to fight the real enemy – the Empire. The second part of the episode was Droids and these rebels fighting the Empire and trying to escape from the planet. They managed to do so and the Ghost crew has a new Phantom – a Neimoidian shuttle!
Brent Friedman who worked on TCW knew the series perfectly and so it was the perfect choice to use a TCW writer for this episode because the dialogues, humor coming from the idiot battle droids, the battle, everything was just like in TCW. He also wrote well the rebel characters ad I’m looking forward to see more of his Rebels episodes! He did an amazing job with this one, thank you!
10/10 Surely one of Rebels’s best episode, a fantastic tribute to the best Star Wars show of all time – Star Wars The Clone Wars!
Katee Sackhoff who voiced Bo-Katan in Star Wars The Clone Wars has announced at the Sydney Comic-Con that she has reprised her Star Wars role for Rebels! So you can get even more excited for season 3 as another clone wars character is arriving on the show! Someone who was at the event, posted the news on Facebook.
