Where To Watch Star Wars Rebels Season 2

The first episode of Star Wars Rebels Season 2: The Siege of Lothal aired last Saturday and while everyone was bubbling with excitement, I was panicking because my husband and I don't have cable! We do the Hulu/Netflix thing and for the most part those two combined cover our TV and movie needs. But sometimes we run into a crisis such as this. So after our weekend craziness, I did some research on where we could watch it online while doing my best to stay away from any possible spoilers on all my social media accounts. That was difficult!

First off, can I say that I found it very strange that the official Star Wars website didn't have it available to watch? I distinctly remember Season 1 being on there before. Perhaps when the season continues this Fall they'll add it? Anyhow, I found several suspicious websites that had it uploaded for free to watch. I was desperate but my husband reminded me that we're not Pirates. Plus, who wants to deal with annoying ads and bad quality?

I discovered that the Disney XD website has it on their website to watch though you do have to enter information about your cable account to access it. I'm guessing this option would be good for those of you who have already watched the episode but forgot to record it so you could watch it a second and third time. You know, like normal people.

Google Play has the episode available in Standard Definition for $5.99 and in HD for $7.99. I figure most people enjoy HD but it's nice that they give you the option! Google Play allows you to stream the episode from the web or watch it on most Android devices.

iTunes also has it available in HD for $7.99. This was what we decided to do as I liked the idea of being able to own the episode on my laptop to watch it whenever and however many times we want.

UPDATE

Thanks to The Wookie Gunner for letting me know that if you're a Sling TV member ($20 a month) you can watch Rebels through Disney XD for $5 extra. Sling TV allows you to watch live TV customized to your interests with special packages that you can add on for under $10 a month including sports and family channels.

It may seem like a lot for a 43 minute episode, but let me tell you... If you haven't seen it yet, you need to purchase it from one of these places asap! It's 100% worth paying for!

Star Wars Series 5 & Trooper Jr. Vinylmations

Whoo! I finally got around to filming my new Star Wars Series 5 Vinylmations which I purchased from different people who went to Star Wars Weekends. I bought and traded for the Trooper Jr. Vinylmations in the Facebook group, Vinylmation Exchange. Yes, they are addicting! Enjoy!

Star Wars Rebels Kanan & Hera Eachez Vinylmations at D23

Star Wars Rebels Kanan & Hera Eachez Vinylmations at D23 | Anakin And His Angel

Yesterday, VinylmationWorld.com reported that one of the many Vinylmation Eachez sets at the upcoming D23 Expo in Anaheim this August features two of our favorite characters from Star Wars Rebels, Kanan and Hera. They are limited edition to only 1500. Hera is the common (9 out of 10 - LE of 1350) while Kanan is a variant chaser (1 out of 10 - LE of 150). They will be $16.95 a box and sold at the D23 Expo Dream Store on August 14th-16th.

I am so excited about these Vinlymations and I'm hoping see more Star Wars Vinylmations being made that aren't of OT characters. Don't get me wrong, I love the OT, but they haven't really touched any of the prequels or cartoons until recently. At Star Wars Celebration, there was a 2-pack of Chopper & Zeb and just recently a single Inquistor Vinylmation was released at D-street in Downtown Disney. I am willing to bet they will do an Ahsoka very soon!

Padme Amidala's Wardrobe: My Favorites Part 1

Padme Amidala's Wardrobe: My Favorites Part 1 | Anakin And His Angel

There's a lot going forward with Star Wars, and for that I am so unbelievably excited and grateful. But I'm not about to forget the Prequels and my love for Anakin and Padme. So, in an effort to incorporate more content surrounding our favorite couple in the galaxy, I have a few posts centered around Padme Amidala's wardrobe. I have challenged myself to choose only two favorite outfits from each film. Yeah, we'll see how that goes!

Today I have featured two of her eleven outfits in The Phantom Menace both as the Queen and as the girl.

TATOOINE OUTFIT

"As Queen Amidala in TPM, Natalie wears nearly a dozen outfits; far fewer were originally planned, but by the time the script was finalized, George's desire to expand the fashion universe had lead to an almost threefold increase. She wears a different outfit in nearly every scene."

I didn't choose this one because of its appearance but because of what took place while she wore it. Who knew she'd meet her future husband on such a dusty planet in attire that definitely wasn't the norm for her. It was only her braided her that was taken up half way into a stylized bun with braids cascading down against her flowing hair that resembled her feminine side and the important role of which she played back home on Naboo. Anakin Skywalker was just a "Funny little boy", so wishing she had looked her best didn't cross her mind even once. She had more important things to worry about. Still, while conversing with him she couldn't help but be astonished by his words and confident personality. Little Ani captured her attention like no other being had before. It was in that moment, both in their tunics and baggy pants, that they made a rare connection and their future would change forever.

CELEBRATION GOWN

"We were told that Queen Amidala was to be in disguise, that she could sneak out the back of her costumes and you wouldn't know she was gone, which is why she is wearing clothing up to her chin and white face paint, like you find on geishas, Mongolians or Elizabeth I of England."

Choosing one gown from the Queen's wardrobe is no easy task. After much deliberation and looking through my costume books, I decide that the gown she wears during the parade at the end of the film is my favorite. I do love the all-white statement look with the faint hints of pink, yellow, and gold in her flowing cape which was made up of over 250 petals. The layering effect of the cape is very angelic, especially combined with the collar that sits behind her head like a halo. The hair style isn't my favorite but I do love the silver head piece draped across her forehead. Though this gown is much more relaxed than the rest of her closet, it's still very detailed and obviously only fit for someone of royalty. Another reason this gown is my favorite is because it coincides with the celebration her mother, Princess Leia, would one day be part of. She also wore white to represent, what I would assume, peace. Something they both fought for every day. Oh, and I can't forget the smiles each of them shared with their future men afterwards. Priceless!

If you had to pick two outfits, which would you choose?

Star Wars Make Up by CoverGirl

Star Wars Make Up by CoverGirl | Anakin And His Angel

I think it was around the time of when Attack of the Clones was released that I started saying there should be a Star Wars make up line. I honestly can't understand why it hasn't been done until now? I was shocked that CoverGirl was the one to pick up the line as it seems MAC is usually the one to debut movie collections. It is nice this way though because I think the products will be more massively produced which will make them easier to find, plus more people will be able to afford it. RebelScum.com has many photos of some of the products that we can expect to see later this fall! I'm anxious to see more nail polish and lipstick colors! A few of the items are hard to make out but it definitely looks like we'll be getting at least mascara, nail polish, lip gloss and lip stick. I like the packaging though I think something, maybe the lip products, should have been shaped like light sabers. Just sayin'.

THANK YOU COVERGIRL!

Who's excited?
