Star Wars Rebels: "Warhead" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

 

This was a fun little episode that managed to focus both as this season’s droid-focused installment (albeit, with Zeb along for the ride), gave Chopper and AP-5 a droid antagonist to take on, and also weaved back into this season’s Thrawn storyline at the very end.

Once more Rebels managed to reach deep into Star Wars history here, basing the look of the Imperial Infiltrator Droid, EXD-9, after Ralph McQuarrie’s early concept art for C-3PO, much in the way Zeb is modeled after McQuarrie’s Chewbacca concept art – always a cool way to use and pay tribute to the work of one of the most influential people in Star Wars’ history in a big, onscreen manner.
