One small thing
Why is it ending at episode 9? Is this going to have unfinished episodes like the clone Wars?
Or is it going to be another annoying 2 month wait for one episode
RIP-OFF! HIGHWAY ROBBERY!
Is anyone really stupid enough to buy these Star Wars seasons on iTunes? These seasons are beyond being a ripoff, it’s HIGHWAY ROBBERY!
Don’t get me wrong, Rebels is an EXCELLENT show, and deserves 5/5 stars in my book. But how can anyone really justify paying these outlandish prices? I’m not sure why Season 4 is “only” $30 (I assume that’s supposed to mean it’s “on sale”), but Season 1 cost me $40. Season 1 is ONLY 13 EPISODES! I’m not sure how much it costs today because once you buy a season the current price is never shown again. Yes, I was dumb enough to purchase it a couple years ago and I regretted it as soon as I finished episode 1. Why? ALL EPISODES ARE A MEASLY 22 MINUTES! Normally I’d say that’s normal, especially for an animated show, but I was naive enough to assume each episode MUST be 42 minutes... Why else would someone pay $40 for 13 22-min. episodes?
According to IMdB, Season 4 is scheduled for 16 Episodes. $30 is better than $40-$50, but that still comes to $2 per 22 mins. I wouldn’t mind as much about the exceedingly sky high prices if they ever had a decent Sale once in a while, but not once have I come across one. I’m one of those people who check iTunes every single Monday night @9:30 pm (that’s when iTunes finishes updating their weekly promotions/sales & New Movies/Shows releases) so I would definitely know if they did have a sale for Rebels. Most shows are constantly going on sale for $10-15 or lower, and that includes hour-long shows. Why is Rebels too special for a price cut every now and again, but the other 98% of shows go on sale once every month it seems like. Seriously, I’d be more than happy with a one-week-per-year sale at this point, but Disney is TOO GREEDY to cut its customers a break every now and then. Why wouldn’t a 3 year old season (meaning Season 1) ever depreciate in value? EVERYTHING in life goes down in value after a certain point, and for a show that point is usually 1-2 years.
It’s funny, since that time a few years ago when I must have been clinically insane to pay the obscene price for Rebels Season 1, I vowed to NEVER BUY DISNEY PRODUCTS AGAIN UNTIL THEY REALIZE ITS NOT MY FAULT THEY PAID GEORGE LUCAS THE EQUIVALENCE OF A NOT- SO-SMALL COUNTRY FOR THE STAR WARS BRAND... $4.05 BILLION Dollars... Let that sink in for a moment... Disney expects you and I, THE CONSUMER, to pay double the market value for a product simply because they’re financially irresponsible and WAAAAAYYYY overpaid for a single brand. MAYBE $4.05 Billion wouldn’t be so obscene if the Original 6 films were included in the sale, but nope, they only bought the rights to create FUTURE films and projects.
Please people, STOP PAYING COMPANIES LIKE DISNEY WHO PASS THE PRICE ON TO YOU, THE LOYAL CONSUMER, AFTER WILDLY & IRRESPONSIBLY OVERSPENDING FOR THE RIGHTS TO MAKE THESE 22-min SHOWS. THEY ARE IN SUCH A RUSH TO MAKE ALL THER MONEY BACK AND BEGIN PROFITING OFF THE BRAND THAT THEY'VE DECIDED THE BEST WAY TO DO SO IS TO CHARGE OVER TRIPLE THE VALUE OF THE ACTUAL PRODUCT. SO INSTEAD OF HAVING TO WAIT 8-10 YEARS TO GRADUALLY RECOUP THE COST OF THE BRAND, THEY DECIDED THAT WAS TOO LONG OF A WAIT, AND HEY, THOSE STUDIO HEADS REALLY NEED THAT CASH NOW... HOW ELSE WILL THEY AFFORD THEIR NEW INDOOR SWIMMING POOL/TENNIS COURT IN THEIR 7th HOUSE THEY OWN? You’d assume all those people who complain about wealth inequality in this country, hate the 1% soooo much, and think they’re all so evil/heartless that you’d say HECK NO to these ridiculous prices. I would think a big part of the Rebel audience is grown adults living with Mom and blame the 1% for their problems in life (the Left loves blaming people, just never themselves), so why would you people continue lining the pockets of those same greedy people?

Awesome show. Anything Star Wars is good.
Wait and make sure there isn't a Season4 Vol. 2 before you purchase this.
So far it's boring

Now I know why it's ending. They are out of ideas.
All paths are coming together
I cannot believe this amazing series is really about to be over.
As a huge Star Wars fan, Rebels is very special to me, and I've loved this show since I first tuned in at the beginning of season 2. The beginning was a bit rough, with the series working to find its place between the crushing stigma of "Disney animated kids' show" and the "Bring back The Clone Wars!" demands from many SW die-hards.
For me, this was my very first introduction to SW animation, and it holds a special place in my heart. I know many fans will probably want to grill me for saying this, but I prefer Rebels to The Clone Wars for a vast array of reasons. But I'll spare you that rant here. ;)
I will say, however, that this show does not in any way deserve much of the hate and eye-rolling it still gets from certain areas of the fandom. Everyone gets their own opinions, and everyone has their own personal experiences that may cause them to pick one show over the other, I get that. But I think way more people should give this thing a chance, instead of dropping after some of the stilted dialog of early season 1, or in protest of the abrupt ending of TCW. If for no other reason, then do it because you believe in the storytelling magic of Dave Filoni, as shown in TCW. Once you reach the second season, you'll realize just how essential this series is to the overall SW story. If you were a fan of TCW, watch this because it ties up so many of those loose ends, and Rex and Ahsoka are back. If you're a fan of the prequels, watch this because it has so many leftovers, both in-story and outside of it, from that era. If you're a fan of the originals, watch because of TIEs, Darth Vader, and X-Wings. If you're a fan of the old Expanded Universe, watch for Grand Admiral Thrawn, TIE Defenders, and post-Purge Jedi.
Really guys. Just watch it. This last season is gonna be so intense, everything's been leading up to this moment, the stories have been so carefully and expertly laid out and teased along in preparation for this time of "All paths coming together." Sabine's history and return to Mandalore, Ezra's struggle and decisions about his destiny, Kanan's place in a post-Jedi Order galaxy, Hera's balance between zeal for the Rebellion and devotion to her adopted family, Saw Gererra's and Mon Mothma's falling out and splitting of the Rebel groups, and so much more. It's all coming together. This is the end, this is where we've been led to, to finish now. And I will guarantee you, you won't want to miss it.
(And if you want to hear more of me ranting about this stuff, check out my podcast, The Elven Padawan, while you're waiting for the new season! 😊)
Excited for the final season!
By COME OUT!
First off, I’m just really exciting that Star Wars Rebels is getting the opportunity to wrap up it’s show and it’s main characters and to see where they lead on to. We know Hera and Chopper survive because they are in Rogue One, but as for Kanan and Ezra, I think one of them might die. What I’m most excited to see is what happened to Ahsoka and I hope she comes back in physical form to fight for the Rebellion again! We finally get to X Wings come in to battle for the first time, Tie Defenders, more Thrawn, Bo Katan, and more war and destruction! This will be the best season yet, but will be short like the first one was 😔. I’d say the SD version is a good price of $20.00 and will be well worth the price!!
Took 4 seasons for ITunes to get the price right.

The last season of Rebels. It’s action packed and is important to the plot of Star Wars
Excellent story telling
I rarely write reviews for the iTunes Store but I am a big fan for Rebels. It is great for the seasoned fan and the rookie alike. Myself, I am not a Star Wars die hard, so I had no idea of any of the back stories other than what I saw in the movies. However, after watching Rebels, I was compelled to go back and watch The Clone Wars and even read the Thrawn novel. It is excellent story telling for big and small. Watch it!
Oh, My Gosh. This Is Gonna Be The Last Season Ever!
