    karabast! a tribute to “star wars: rebels”

    With the animated show “Star Wars: Rebels” reaching its series finale in just a few short weeks, join SciFiActorAppearances.com's Eric LeBlanc and company as they look back at Star Wars' finest animated series yet. When Disney purchased Star Wars a few years ago and promptly canceled Clone Wars, Star Wars animation fans were left wondering if they were ever going to see such a great Star Wars cartoon again. Well, Executive Producer Dave Filoni raised the bar with Rebels, introducing incredible new characters and stories that have intertwined with the films and become vital viewing for any Star Wars fan. We'll look at where the series is ultimately headed, where the characters go from there and what's next for Star Wars animation.
