In Review: Star Wars Rebels – Imperial Supercommandos

Having lost contact with the protectors of Concord Dawn, Sabine, Ezra and Fenn Rau investigate and find the base occupied by Imperial Mandalorians.

Synopsis: Having lost contact with the protectors of Concord Dawn, Sabine, Ezra and Fenn Rau investigate and find the base occupied by Imperial Mandalorians.

Review: After a brief break ‘Star Wars Rebels’ returns with a continuation of an earlier story, which concerns Fenn Rau’s place in the rebellion.

The episode begins with Sabine playing a board game with Rau while trying to sell him on why he should join the cause, but he refuses to budge.

When they are called to the bridge Ezra, Sabine and Rau are sent to investigate why Concord Dawn is no longer in communication with the rebel fleet.

As they arrive they find the planet has been attacked and all the Mandalorians, which were under Rau’s command have gone. As they further investigate they come under attack from Imperial Mandalorian Super troopers who want to take Rau prisoner. Ezra gets himself captured in order to allow Sabine and Rau to get away. Using the chaos as an opportunity Rau steals Sabines ship and makes a get away, but has a change of heart and comes back for her and Ezra.

This was another story that looks at Mandalorian culture and the bonds of family. By the close of the story it is evident that Rau has had a change of heart and with his troops all gone he decides to join the rebellion and help Sabine.

As to the story. It was a little by the numbers. But we got some decent character beats as well as spending a little more time with Sabine and Rau.

As always the animation was top notch and the sequence in which the Imperial Mandalorins gives chase to Sabine and Ezra was pretty damn cool.
