Podcast Stardust #119: Rebels – Breaking Ranks – 0106

by Podcast Stardust

Ezra infiltrates an Imperial academy on Lothal to steal needed intel, but he makes some friends along the way, and they must all escape.

Podcast Stardust’s ongoing discussion of Star Wars: Rebels continues with a review of episode six of season one: “Breaking Ranks.” Ezra continues to grow as a character as he infiltrates the Imperial Academy on Lothal to retrieve secret intel on the transport of Kyber crystals by the Empire.

On this fully armed and operational episode we discuss:

  • How Ezra may have infiltrated the Academy,
  • The introduction of Zare Leonis and his role in Star Wars canon,
  • Jai Kell and his role in this story and Rebels overall,
  • Kanan’s concern about Ezra,
  • Hera and Kanan’s mission to destroy the Kyber crystal, and

How this episode ties to other Star Wars content, such as Rogue One, Catalyst, The Clone Wars, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
