Godspeed, Rebels (spoilers)
Star Wars: Rebels tells the story of how a ragtag, independent insurgency grows into a unified cause over the course of five years. The main characters are typically good role models, but will on occasion make some shady decisions. The parental relationships are depicted as strained at best, and nonexistent at worse.
There’s no language or explicit content. However, there are some more subtle references. For example, two characters have a baby out of wedlock, and it’s implied to be unplanned on their part. Drugwise, characters are seen drinking, but nothing else. In one seen a character pretends to be drunk as part of an infiltration tactic. The only other example involves a character getting forcibly drugged during an interrogation; she is high for most of the episode.
The main issue here is the darker tone in the last two seasons. The series is not afraid to get deadly serious. In the season three premiere, a heroic character psychically forces an enemy to kill his comrades and then himself. This scene is meant to illustrate a darker side of the protagonist. Another seen involves a major character getting abruptly stabbed in the face with a lightsaber; the wound is shown on-screen. Later in that same episode a beloved supporting character is killed in an emotional duel. (Though it’s revealed two seasons later that she escaped). Another supporting character is visibly bleeding. A main character is killed in an explosion on-screen, and that made me of all people sob like a little bish. In the season finale the main character is killed off. More generally, expect a lot of lightsaber stabbings, explosive deaths, multiple intense torture scenes.
It’s an amazing show, and I’m sad it only lasted four seasons. Glory to the Empire!
