My whole family are Star Wars fans so the animated series Star Wars Rebels is a must for us. The show follows all the rules in the Star Wars universe and even connects to the movies by continuing story lines and filling in gaps from the movies. The show is fun to watch for both kids an adults and owning this Blu-ray copy allows us to watch the whole season in order from beginning to end (but not in one sitting). The fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels will premiere this fall on Disney XD.
