This is a very enjoyable edit. The transitions are almost seamless, and the story is certainly fun. That said, there is one issue I have with this that I cannot leave unsaid. Unlike The Clone Wars, Rebels has much more isolated, episodic stories (at least in the earlier seasons). This makes it really easy to see when one episode ends and another begins, and the edit suffers for it. Still, it is a very nice alternative for those who want to watch Rebels, but would prefer a more cinematic experience.
Not as familiar with the Rebels series as the Clone Wars, but this one makes a solid impression of the still-ongoing (as of this writing) series.
I think there's still a tad too much tween humor left in the film, but when you take a look at the sheer magnitude of how much was taken out, it makes what's in acceptable. Visual and audio editing are in tact and just fine; there are obvious points at which the narrative would have "ended" with an episode, but it is well-edited. The only limitations are from the raw footage from the series itself, which betray too much childishness. The Clone Wars had the same limitations, but compensated nicely with some pretty heady, dark stuff late into the series (looking at *you*, season 4)...
To start off, well done to harrybowls for making a nearly seamless cut of Rebels. Audio/Video quality was perfect, visual editing was perfect, audio editing was almost perfect except for the speeder chase in the very beginning of the cut where the music kind of faded in and out without rhyme or reason, it felt really weird. The overall narrative was excellent as well, kudos again to harrybowls for pulling a cohesive thread from four distinct episodes. It was very difficult to tell where one episode ended and the next began.
I put my enjoyment as a 6 not because of any flaw with harrybowls, but the issue lies with Rebels itself. When I watched this edit, I had just seen the finale for season 2 of Rebels, and let me tell you, that is some excellent TV right there. Just about all of season 2, in fact, absolutely blows season 1 out of the water in every way. I'd forgotten how janky and plasticky those early episodes of Rebels were, and how much less interesting it was. If, however, I was to introduce someone to Rebels, this would be how I'd do it. I'm looking forward to seeing Episode II!
I know this wasn't the editor's intention, but this edit replaces the prequels for me. This concludes my review.
P.S. Seriously, I enjoyed this edit. The story flows as if it were a true Star Wars motion picture. Wookiee thumbs up (that's just how I'm built—don't judge) for trimming superfluous dialogue from the original episodes.
P.P.S. Going into this viewing, I was aware of other reviewers' comments that the cropping was pretty well done but not consistently applied. However, when I watched it, I got into the story and the joy of being in the Star Wars universe and forgot to look out for these flaws. . . and whaddyaknow, I didn't notice anything was amiss. Visually, this is a great-looking edit with a widescreen, cinematic feel.
P.P.P.S. I look forward to more edits by this jeditor.
