And so begins the beginning of the end for Rebels. It's certainly a bittersweet thing, but we can be thankful that the team working on the show has the opportunity to end the show properly and give the Ghost crew the sendoff they deserve, whatever that might mean. All that aside, there are finally new episodes of Rebels to talk about this week!

This is definitely the Skyhoppers take on a Valentine's Day-themed episode, but Ben and Ash look at different aspects of love as it appears in Star Wars than you might expect. Somehow Luke and Vader get skipped over even though they're part of the reason Ben wanted to do the episode, but WHATEVER.

Also! This didn't get mentioned in the episode because Ben forgot, but you can now find all of the Skyhoppers goodness you love on Spotify!

This week, Ash and Ben hit on the Rebels trailer that dropped... some amount of time ago, and then talk about the Star Wars comics that have been coming out recently! There have been some good ones, let me tell you.

Welcome back to another edition of the Skyhoppers Podcast! This week, Ben and Ash discuss the future of Rebels as well as a plethora of other topics that just kind of fall out of their mouths. It's a better time than it sounds, we promise.

This episode is basically the most Skyhoppers episode to ever exist. Ben and Ash finally get to open their Commonwealth Secret Santa gifts, Storms of Crait and Battlefront DLC discussion, and then a bit of a grab bag to close out the episode. The Skyhoppers in their truest form!

Claudia Gray does it again! Leia, Princess of Alderaan is another fantastic entry into the Star Wars canon, and it gives some really great insight into how Leia developed into the person we know her as. If you haven't read this book, we here at the Skyhoppers can't recommend it highly enough.

We're back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week, Alex joins Ben and Ash to talk about The Last Jedi as well as a lot of the response to the movie from different sects of fans. While this movie most likely isn't as divisive as the narrative surrounding the movie has made it out to be, it certainly has some points of contention. However, all three hosts fall firmly into the "OMG IT'S SO GREAT" camp and probably will until the end of time.

***SPOILERS FOR THE LAST JEDI*** After what feels like a CENTURY of waiting, The Last Jedi is finally here!!! Ben and Ash absolutely loved it. This episode focuses mainly on the main characters, but even with it being as long as it is, there is still plenty of discussion to be had about this movie.

This episode is ostensibly about things from the Prequels that we want to see revisited in the Sequel Trilogy, but that isn't how the episode really ends up playing out. But Alexandra FINALLY joins us again! We've missed her. The Last Jedi talk ahead!

This week, Ben and Ash tackle a bit of a unique topic: the subject of school, academies, and other forms of teaching in the Star Wars universe. One thing we can all agree on is that the First Order is SUPER creepy.

November was all about The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu, which is filled with great stories about everyone's favorite Jedi Knight! Except "The Lugubrious Mote." We don't like that one.

Everyone, grab your Bible juice. This is gonna be a wild ride. Ben and Ash get very philosophical about the Force in this episode, and go pretty deep. Change can be scary, but sometimes it's best to just roll with it. It might be hard to enjoy The Last Jedi if you can't.

Well, Ben and Ash were going to talk about something that WASN'T Battlefront this week, but that clearly did not go as planned. They touch pretty heavily on the story mode in the game and try to dodge some of the more contentious topics surrounding the game right now. One thing is definitely certain: Iden Versio is perfect.

Rebels ends the first half of its final season in a rather dramatic fashion, don't you think? We certainly do!

Also, we totally say "crawler commanders" throughout the whole episode. Please don't @ us.

Emperor Palpatine. What a guy, am I right? This week, Ash and Ben go deep on discussion of everyone's favorite greenish pruny baddie. This episode really could've gone a lot longer, but there's only so long we Skyhoppers feel comfortable monopolizing your time, ya feel?

Ash and Ben are biting off an awful lot with this episode. Four full episodes of Rebels to cover? And each one is filled with events that have far-reaching implications for the rest of the series? This one should be a doozy!

In this particularly disjointed episode, Ben and Ash try to tackle their excitement for Battlefront II! It's a little looser than usual, but hey, everyone wants to let their hair down every now and then. We here at the Skyhoppers Podcast are no exception.
