Complete Star Wars: Rebels Watch Order Guide – Easily Rewatch Star Wars: Rebels

The tale of Ezra and his affair with the forgotten ways of the Jedi in Star Wars: Rebels remains Disney’s unique gift to the franchise.

Set after the birth of the Empire and before the rise of A New Hope, the spin-off is centered on the Rebel movement of the Galaxy. The result showed us the first time the Padawan-to-Jedi transformation was in all its glory.

The rough-edged orphan Ezra Bridger’s powerful Force abilities are discovered by the starship crew of one of Galaxy’s last remaining Jedi Knights, Kanan Jarrus.

When looking at where the whole series fits into the extended Star Wars universe, you can watch it after you finish the Prequel Trilogy and the other spin-off series, The Clone Wars, and before the Original Trilogy.

9. About Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars Rebels is a four-season-long animated TV series animated and produced by Lucasfilm Animation. Rebels aired its first episode on October 14, 2014, and follows the story of rebels who make the rebellion happen against The Empire in the Star Wars Universe.

The plot revolves around a team of Rebels and clearly the most unique team combination we have seen in Star Wars so far. The rebel team is led by Jedi Knight Kenan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla – daughter of Cham Syndulla who once fought the Separatists with Jedi Master Windu during the Clone Wars.

We also have an R2D2-style astromech – Chopper, an ex-Mandalorian – Sabine Wren, and a Lasat – Garazeb Orellios. The team’s rebellion starts escalating quickly when they encounter a strong force-sensitive boy, Ezra Bridger on the planet of Lothal.
