A Farewell to Star Wars Rebels: part 1

In just a few days, the amazing show Star Wars Rebels will come to its conclusion.

We’ve had four seasons of the Ghost crew and their fight against the Empire, each member learning as they overcame challenges of all kinds together. I started watching this show only a year ago, and even though I know the Finale is going to be fantastic and well-thought out, I am extremely sad that it’s ending. It will be missed greatly. In honor of Rebels, the team of The Elven Padawan – Shay, Kitten, and I, Audrey – talk about our favorite characters, episodes, and why we love Rebels so much.

An update from Shay…

Hey guys, I just wanted to let all my readers here on The Elven Padawan blog know what’s going on right now….

Some of you may have already seen my tweets on this subject, but for those who haven’t, here’s the deal:

I’ll still be hanging around to chat with you guys in the comments as much as possible, and I’ll still probably be keeping up with the happenings on Twitter a small bit, but at least until the end of this week, my work with TEP will be very minimal. I just wanted to let you all know so you don’t give up on my return, or think I’ve given up on this craziness we call a fandom. 😉

Also, there have been some rather unexpected recent happenings in the Middle-earth realm, and I’ll probably be adding some new sections to this site soon to accommodate for that.

And also be looking for some overall changes in general, as I’m trying to update a couple other aspects of all this to go alongside my brand-new podcast intro! Nothing too major, but I’m looking to try out some new ideas as I’ve gotten a better feel for what I’m aiming at here, and am finally beginning to find my place in this community.

Until my galaxy is free again!

The Elven Padawan: From Erebor to Echo Base – #9 – Destiny, Rebels, HerUniverse, &… a LOTR TV show??!!

Shay goes solo! All by herself, she rambles about: recent episodes of Forces of Destiny, why you should be watching them, and how they tie into the bigger story (#HeraLives!!); Star Wars Rebels and where it’s headed as the show comes to a close; recent releases from HerUniverse and Shay’s tastes in fandom fashion; and the just-dropped reports on the possibility of Amazon making a Lord of the Rings series. She also reads some thoughts from the audience concerning these topics, and takes a few minutes to ramble about Vice Admiral Holdo, Rose, and other characters entering the Star Wars universe.
