Note: As this review is going up before Star Wars Rebels: Season 2 even has a premiere date (nope, it unfortunately was not revealed at Celebration), it will not contain full spoilers and is safe for those who are okay with a broader overview of what to expect.

At Star Wars Celebration, prior to the debut of the double-length Star Wars Rebels: Season 2 premiere, a packed room of fans were also shown the Season 1 finale as a lead-in to the new episode. It was a reminder of just how strong that finale was, and while it got the audience even more pumped to see what was next, it also raised the bar on expectations.
