Star Wars Generations episode 235

Star Wars Rebels • S4 E15 — Final Episode

Join host Matthew Fox and guests Riki Hayashi and Sarah Hayashi as we discuss the Star Wars Rebels series finale, “Family Reunion and Farewell.” They explore the events of the last episode, analyze key character arcs, praise the show’s found family theme, and share their thoughts on what makes it a satisfying conclusion.

  • Overview of the finale’s plot wrapping up the Lothal storyline and showing where the characters end up 5 years later after Return of the Jedi
  • Strong performances from recurring guests like Hondo and satisfaction seeing secondary characters return
  • Excellent portrayal of Emperor Palpatine by Ian McDermid and Ezra resisting his manipulation
  • Callus completing his redemption arc and earning Zeb’s trust and love
  • The show’s found family theme mirrored in the Ghost crew’s connections versus Thrawn and the Empire’s isolation
  • Powerful ending for the Clone troopers Gregor and Rex fighting for a cause they believe in
  • Ezra foregoing temptation to have his parents revived to stay true to his found family
  • Hera, Rex and Zeb/Callus’ roles in the later Rebellion and New Republic
