Ezra, the Middle, and the Dark Side

One of the opening stories in Rebels Season 3 was Ezra’s propensity toward the Dark Side. Season 3 showed us the heights of Jedi compassion and wisdom, the depths of despair from the Dark, and the instability of life in the middle. All of these would be expert object lessons for Ezra, which makes it stranger that he wasn’t there to experience any of it.

Rogue One Novelization Review (MakingStarWars.net)

The last time I read a novelization of a movie, it was nearly two decades ago. My dad had taken me out of school early to see the newest Godzilla movie, and to say I was excited is an understatement. Shortly after, I picked up the paperback novelization. While I’m sure I enjoyed it as a kid, it didn’t leave a lasting mark on me, especially not enough to convince me to pick up any others.

Early in season one, we are introduced to the pacifist Lurmen species. Unfortunately, the show seems to stand against the Lurmen’s nonviolence, never entertaining the idea that this is a legitimate viewpoint to hold.
