Kay Talks Rebels’ Wedge, Hera, & Thrawn on Rebel Yell

Rebel Yell Podcast ArtIt was my pleasure to join Steve Glosson, Erich Schoenweiss, and Amy Ratcliffe as Disney Vault Talk Rebel Yell hosted a Star Wars Rebels double-episode discussion. “The Antilles Extraction” and “Hera’s Heroes” were on the docket for this podcast.

We share our thoughts on the storytelling choices used while introducing fan-favorite Wedge Antilles, focusing on show leads Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren, and getting the highly-anticipated Thrawn going. Listen in for Fulcrum theories, a brief history of Jagged Fel, and #Thrawning. Take a moment to geek out with us over “Hera’s Heroes” episode writer Nicole Dubuc’s career. Don’t miss Erich revealing himself to be a Cylon either.

She grew up wanting to be an astronaut. After seeing Star Wars, she wanted to be Princess Leia, Han Solo, and an astronaut. Life’s taken her on a bit of a different path, but she’s okay with that.
