Discussing Rebels’ “Twin Suns”

Caitlin and Charlotte deep dive into some specific aspects about Star Wars Rebels’ excellent episode “Twin Suns” — they discuss their initial impressions of the episode, fan reactions, and then compare it to Hitchcock’s masterpiece “North by Northwest” by exploring the concepts of moral relativism, mistaken identity, and the episode’s visual language. Then, they speculate about how we will view this episode after the upcoming Kenobi series.
