POLL RESULT: Favorite Character from Star Wars: Rebels Is…

The Killing Time Community has spoken, and our favorite character from Star Wars: Rebels is everyone’s favorite explosive-obsessed Mandalorian: Sabine Wren.  Voting was neck and neck with Sabine, and the show’s two Jedi: Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger (who finished in a tie for second place) the whole month.  Tying for fifth were the two Rebels we know for sure will survive the show’s final season (as they both have cameos in Rogue One): Captain Hera Syndulla and Chopper.

Grand Admiral Thrawn was the only villain originating from the show to get any votes.  Its proximity to A New Hope has allowed the show to use classic villains like Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin, and-of course-Darth Maul.  Sabine’s win continues a trend of awesome, well-written female characters that have emerged during Disney’s stewardship of Star Wars, and the galaxy far, far away is far better for it.

The fourth and final season of Star Wars: Rebels can be seen on Disney XD.  Thanks for voting, and we’ll have a new poll up in a bit.

Will We See Mandalorians in Star Wars Episode VII?

Mandalorians

Latino Review, which has become the “go-to” source for Star Wars sequel trilogy over the last few years, has reported another rumor about who exactly might be the key villains of the JJ Abrams-directed film.

Previous rumors have had black clad storm troopers and a special group of “Jedi Hunters” that would be reporting to the Sith.  Latino Report is saying that these will, in fact, be the Mandalorians.  Ancient enemies of the Jedi Order, The Mandalorians have been best represented so far in The Clone Wars cartoon, but you’ve seen their armor on a certain father/son bounty hunter duo by the name of Fett.  This would make a lot more sense than creating a new type of “Jedi Hunter” and a full-blown Mandalorian resurgence would be just as big a threat as the Empire.  I’m so excited for this film!
