Brews and Blasters 159: Star Wars Rebels Series Finale

by Brews and Blasters

Our purrgil predictions came true! Chris and Joe discuss the epic Star Wars Rebels series finale with a spin they could only put on A Fool’s Hope, Family Reunion and Farewell.

How does Lord of the Rings factor into the Star Wars Rebels series finale, and what lies ahead for Ezra Bridger, Grand admiral Thrawn, Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, Jacen Syndulla (!) and Ahsoka Tano? We have a few thoughts.

The Star Wars Rebels party starts NOW! It’s time for Brews and Blasters.

Born from the discussions between two friends at a local pub in the historic town of Salem, Massachusetts, Brews and Blasters is your chance to kick back, relax and then enjoy everything about that galaxy far, far away. Your hosts, Chris Salton (founder, The Collectors Hutt) as well as Joe Tavano (founder and editor in chief, RetroZap!) sit down every week to do what would be doing anyway–talk about all things Star Wars, tell some stories, and of course, have a good time.

Join Joe and Chris as they share their love for Star Wars, the most obscure Star Wars characters, Boston’s North Shore, 1980s pop culture and delicious food, and occasionally talk to fascinating people–and friends, like an anthropomorphic packet of crystallized lime.
