On this week’s Rebels review, the crew of the Ghost encounters R2-D2 and C-3PO as they attempt to steal controversial weapons from the Empire for Vizago in “Droids in Distress.”
For this week’s discussion of Star Wars: Rebels, Podcast Stardust turns to the first “stand alone” episode and examines what happens when the crew starts running low on fuel and food. Kanan’s solution of running a job for Vizago turns out to be be more complicated than originally planned. A couple of famous Star Wars droids guest star.
On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:
- Ezra’s frustration with not getting the Jedi training he signed up for,
- Zeb’s disgust at finding the disruptors the Empire was developing,
- Kanan’s handling of Zeb’s concerns,
- The character of Kallus and how he changes over the course of Rebels,
- The Star Tours and Rex homage, and
- R2-D2 and C-3PO’s appearance on this episode.
