Star Wars Rebels fans angry at digital release switch-up

Some Star Wars Rebels fans are less than impressed with Disney/Lucasfilm right now. Last week, fans who have been purchasing the show digitally found that ‘The Protector of Concord Dawn’ wasn’t included as part of their season pass for the cartoon’s second season. Instead, it’s part of a third volume – requiring a second ‘season’ pass.

Some initially thought it could be a mistake, but Lucasfilm (via Full of Sith) says it’s a deliberate choice:

Because Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels contains seven episodes more than Season 1 (20 versus 13), it has been broken down into lower priced volumes to make it more accessible. Unfortunately, this was not made clear for those buying a “season pass.” We regret the confusion and are happy to report that, in response, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play have reduced the price for the second half of Season 2 to $19.99.

Jason Ward at Making Star Wars is also among those decrying the “bait and switch.” Fans are angry, flooding ‘Volume 3’ on Amazon and iTunes with angry reviews and one-star ratings.

Princess Leia is coming to Rebels

Rebels will return later this month with ‘A Princess on Lothal’ – featuring Star Wars’ number one princess, Leia Organa herself.

“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope,” Dave Filoni told TV Insider. “One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”

Julie Dolan (Star Wars: Uprising) will voice Leia.

Lucasfilm has released a clip:


‘A Princess in Lothal’ airs Wednesday, January 20 at 9:00 P.M. on Disney XD.
