Rebels Review: Filoni Redefines Force in"A World Between Worlds"
Kanan is dead, Thrawn's TIE Defender program is totally haulted, and the Ghost Crew got the rare chance offered in Star Wars to mourn the loss of a loved one. You're sitting there at your desk or on your couch wondering how Dave Filoni and company will top the mid-season premiere. To no surprise, they blow it away with "Wolves and a Door," and "A World Between Worlds." By the way, if you want my thoughts on the Rebels Season 4 mid-season premiere, just click here.
Fair warning, spoilers ahead!
There are two times we get soundbites from throughout the Star Wars saga. We have a complete list down below. The first group of quotes echos before and after Ezra crosses through the portal and enters "the world between worlds."
“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.” – Yoda to Obi-Wan, Attack of The Clones
“Obi-Wan: What is this place? Qui-Gonn’s Force Ghost: A conduit through which the entire Force of the universe flows.” – Star Wars: The Clone Wars, “Overlords”
“Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.” – Yoda to Luke, The Empire Strikes Back
“Just when you think you understand the Force, you find out how little you actually know.” – Ahsoka to Ezra, Star Wars Rebels, “The Mystery of Chopper Base”
“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.” – Yoda to Anakin, Revenge of the Sith
“What you need, you already have. Unfortunately, you seem to be letting it all go.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ezra, Star Wars Rebels, “Twin Suns”
“I won’t let home lose his way, not like I did.” – Kanan to Yoda, Star Wars Rebels, “Path of the Jedi”
“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke, A New Hope
This second round of quotes from all over the Star Wars timeline are more random.
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.” – Yoda to Anakin, Revenge of the Sith
“Dear child. I see your eyes. You already know the truth. Whomever you’re waiting for on Jakku… they’re never coming back… But… there’s someone who still could… The belonging you seek is not behind you… it is ahead.” – Maz Kanata to Rey, The Force Awakens
“You give way to an enemy this evil with this much power and you condemn the galaxy to an eternity of submission. The time to fight is now!“ – Jyn Erso to the Rebellion, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
“We’ll see each other again. I believe that.” – Rey to Finn, The Force Awakens
“Show me… Grandfather… and I will finish… what you started.” – Kylo Ren to Darth Vader’s helmet, The Force Awakens
“The Resistance will not be intimidated by you.” – Poe Dameron to Kylo Ren, The Force Awakens
“This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” – Princess Leia to Obi-Wan/Luke, A New Hope
“You never would have made it as Obi-Wan’s padawan, but you might make it as mine.” – Anakin to Ahsoka, Star Wars: The Clones Wars (2008)
Star Wars Rebels returns with the series finale on Monday March 5th on Disney XD.
