Star Wars Rebels: “Zero Hour” Season 3 Finale Review

Wow. Star Wars Rebels‘ third season finale was a tight, intense hour that felt like the inverse of Rogue One in a plethora of ways. Make no mistake, Thrawn may have been at least partially

Star Wars Rebels: “Twin Suns” Season 3 Episode 18 Review
