Star Wars Rebels Went Full Western in a Mandalorian-Filled Episode

Illustration for article titled iStar Wars Rebels/i Went Full Western in a Mandalorian-Filled Episode

Made famous by Boba Fett, the Mandalorian race has long been a Star Wars mystery. On the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, not only did we learn more about them, we learned more about our new favorite Mandalorian, Sabine.


The episode was called “The Protector of Concord Dawn” and featured the Rebels trying to befriend a group of militant Mandalorians in order to fly through their space. They had some awesome new ships, there were some interesting Clone Wars connections and it all lead up to this moment. A showdown between Sabine—whose past we learned a little more about—and Fenn Rau, a badass Mandalorian leader who would probably give Jango or Boba Fett a run for their money. Check it out.

Stuff like this is what makes Rebels great. An obvious tip of the cap to the Western genre that ended in a fantastic action scene.

So I’m sure others have gone over this at length, but I haven’t really watched much Rebels except for some early episodes...but man that style is so jarring. The motions are so exaggerated while the expressions and individual parts are so stiff. I don’t think I could take a full episode of it.
