If you've seen seasons 1, 2, and 3, you must get this season to finish the story lines. You will not be disappointed. Some of the scenes caused me to get teary eyed. Can't say that about any other animated series over the 50+ years I've been watching TV. This series, along with Resistance and Clone Wars are far better stories then the recent movies from Disney.
As a huge fan of Star Wars, I was happy to watch another series after Clone Wars. Over four seasons, I have become very fond of these characters who are just as much a part of the Star Wars galaxy as characters in the movies. This season adds to our knowledge of the Force and brings in some familiar characters. Over four seasons, Ezra Bridger has really grown, and we finally get to learn a little more about the relationship between Kanan and Hera. There are some very exciting and moving episodes. No Star Wars fan should miss this.
Rebels delivers. I was not a fan of Clone Wars, but Rebels had me hooked from the first episode. The story builds and there are consequences to the characters actions. Everything comes to a wonderful and satisfying conclusion here. A great addition to the Star Wars universe and it looks great on Blu-ray.
This is a nice, neat wrap up to what was an excellent addition to a series in the expanded universe lore. For fans of the animated Star Wars The Clone Wars series who haven't given this one a shot I recommend it. It's a similar look and tone to what you've come to expect.
I would recommend this to a friend

May the Force Be with You
For over forty years we've uttered that phrase and know what it means. It's only in the last 10-15 years that the star wars brand has taken off in an amazing growth of scope and product availability.
Rebels was supposed to be a kid friendly show, but it didn't know that and turned into an awesome expansion of the skywalker story with some of the most iconic and exciting moments of all the franchise.
In that first episode in the first season where Kanen says "now everyone will know" and ignites his lightsaber announcing the jedi are back, you knew it was going to be special. Not every episode was great but the overarching mythology was. Ashoka, Darth Vader, Yoda, Ben Kenobi, Darth Maul, Leia, Lando...how could you not love this show?
This fourth season is the end and it is a wild ride. From the deep mysticism of the lost ancient jedi religion (thank you for remembering that is what it was considered in the original movie) to the practical battles being fought by the mandalorians to the political machinations of the fledgling rebels, it is an amazing collection of episodes that keep you riveted.
Great storytelling, great music, great visuals, great pacing, great acting. Wisely the season stays focused on the Ghost Crew (rather than the wider rebel alliance) but the story never feels small (um...last Jedi...you kinda felt small...)
Seeing what happened to Ashoka was amazing. Watching the Jedi end again was heartbreaking (and hits like a sledghammer to the audience AND the characters). And the Loth Wolves are so cool.
I would not recommend you start with Rebels season 4, but you must see it! If you haven't seen Rebels Season 1-3, see them FIRST. Then see 4. Awesome TV. Awesome storytelling.
And the DVDs have good quality also. :)
