Star Wars Rebels: Season 3 Review

Now we all know how much I love Star Wars Rebels and its only partly because I got to meet Freddie Prinze Jr when the show first premiered and he remembered me last year when I mentioned it. I consider us twitter married now you know. This show has been a game changer for me and I have followed it since the beginning. I love how Kanaan has developed as a character and how all the main characters have grown with the show. I hate that its finally the end. The fourth season is the last and I am so sad. But I was happy to receive Star Wars Rebels: Season 3 in the mail to review. I absolutely love Dave Filoni's audio commentary. It is hilarious and so fun. And the recaps are perfect. You have to check ou the Blu-ray for this just for the bonus stuff alone.
