REVIEW: “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 arrives on Blu-ray with a fond farewell to the crew of the Ghost

in Entertainment, Movies & TV, Star Wars, Television

Sometimes it’s so hard to say goodbye. Lucasfilm’s popular Disney XD animated series “Star Wars Rebels” (set between Episodes III and IV of the larger Star Wars saga) came to an end this past spring with a very memorable final season, and now fans can own those final fifteen episodes– along with hours of bonus materials– with the new “Star Wars Rebels” Complete Season Four Blu-ray set available as of today.

I was sent a review copy of the “Star Wars Rebels” Complete Season Four Blu-ray set, and I must say I am very impressed with the amount of work that went into delivering the thorough and insightful experience true Star Wars aficionados have come to expect from series co-creator and Executive Producer Dave Filoni, who provides audio commentary on six episodes here, plus on-screen analysis of the series in numerous informative featurettes.

The image looks gorgeous in glorious 1080p High Definition Widescreen with an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, and the audio is presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital, preserving and often surpassing the top-notch presentation of the show’s original airings on Disney XD. Also included are the episode-specific entries from the Lucasfilm webseries “Rebels Recon” and Filoni’s thoughtful ten-minute take on The Force. Truly, “Star Wars Rebels” Complete Season Four is a must-own for Star Wars fanatics who want to revisit the final farewell to Ezra Bridger and the ragtag crew of the Ghost (not to mention the villainous Grand Admiral Thrawn) for all of eternity.
