We’re not surprised by the number of people asking us this question given the crazy stardom Star Wars has always enjoyed. Ever since its conception, George Lucas’ creation, Star Wars has taken the greatest entertainment leap humanity has ever witnessed, albeit, “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away”. The essence of the story lies with a very relatable young boy with super powers backed by a team of cool, engaging characters, some dangerous while others comical, a band of monsters, an old bizarre looking teacher – Yoda all endorsing the good old axiom that “good always wins over evil”. Naturally, it had to be everyone’s favorite.
So much was the hype around it that it quickly turned into a global pop culture followed by several animated spin-offs including Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
You’ve perhaps been a Netflix subscriber or just have been a Star Wars-virgin for a while or just like us have been watching The Clone Wars and wondering whether its possible to watch Star Wars Rebels on Netflix as well. Whatever your case, this article will surely be of use to you.
So Can You Watch Star Wars Rebels on Netflix?
To get straight to the point, NO, Star Wars Rebels is still not up on Netflix. In case you’re a little less familiar with the show, Star Wars Rebels is an animated TV series narrating a story of what happens during the time period between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Long story short, it shows us how a group of rebels fight against the Galactic Empire. So far, the series boasts a season count of 3 with approximately 20 episodes in each, a pretty good binge idea if you ask us.
Is Star Wars Rebels Coming to Netflix Anytime Soon?
Although Star Wars fans have long been pleading Netflix for more of the American space production, it has fallen on deaf ears for the most part. There’s no dearth of rumors surrounding this topic. A little over a year ago, it was said that Netflix, along with a few other TV services would be obtaining rights for three upcoming Star Wars shows. Sadly, most of these rumors are false or else it would have been available on the website by now.
Have You Watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars yet?
In 2008, Lucasfilm Animation churned out a brilliant animated franchise of the Star Wars series called the Clone Wars. The show is set between the prequel movies ‘Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Revenge of the Sith’ in which the Army of the Republic led and impelled by Yoda and a few other Jedi Knights, combat against the Droid Army of the Separatists. The series gained such popularity that it now spans over 6 seasons with a total of about 110 episodes. Despite a relatively early launch, Netflix was able to add it to its library only in 2014, towards the end of its run.
While many have already watched the series, there’s still a good chunk of Star Wars buffs who have probably not been able to watch this show yet. So until you wait for the streaming company to add the Star Wars Rebels or find another way to watch it, you can always catch up on some Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
What Other Star Wars Flicks are on Netflix?
If the aforementioned series doesn’t appeal to you, try watching the Star Wars original series once again. It may seem like a very drab suggestion but hey, replaying those episodes will definitely uplift your mood, and your day. Netflix has the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, the sequel trilogy, and the present anthology movies.
Netflix also flaunts a decent collection of special Star Wars programming including Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy, Science of Star Wars, Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed, and LEGO Star Wars. We promise that you’ll enjoy all of these at equal degrees.
Think Reruns are overrated? Here’s a Way to Watch the Star Wars Rebels Online:
You can subscribe to Amazon Prime Video and purchase the entire series for about $20 and watch all the episodes at your convenience. Alternatively, you could download the series using a torrent site provided you have a VPN subscription.
May the force be with you!
