The exciting adventures in the Star Wars saga have entertained children of all ages for almost forty years! There’s a brand new chapter, The Force Awakens, opening in theaters this December, but if that’s just too long to wait, there’s always Star Wars Rebels on the Disney Channel. Set in the years between Episode III and Episode IV, it follows the crew of the starship Ghost, as they lead a battalion of the Rebellion against the evil Empire, commanded by a very familiar enemy–Darth Vader!
There’s a brand new group of Rebels, a fantastic cast of characters, led by street-smart kid Ezra and the cowboy Jedi Kanan. But there’s also strong female characters, too, like Hera the ace pilot, and Sabine the explosives expert. And for comic relief, there’s Zeb, the wisecracking muscle of the group, and Chopper, the grumpy Astromech droid, who’s as cantankerous as R2-D2 is lively.
Think of Ezra as like Aladdin crossed with Bart Simpson but in a galaxy far, far away.
Kanan is basically Han Solo trained as a Jedi, and Hera is Leia, only not so Princessy.

Sabine is a skilled fighter and a talented artist. Plus, she’s a Mandalorian, so she might be related to Boba Fett. Bonus.
Finally, there’s Zeb Orellios. An honor guard on his home planet, his wry sense of humor and his love of fighting Stormtroopers make him a fan favorite.
It’s easy to see why Star Wars Rebels is fast becoming a huge hit with a brand new generation of Star Wars fans. If your little one is among them, read on to see how throw a fantastic Rebels party for their birthday this year. A party that’s out of this world!
