While I don’t like everything in the franchise, I am a lifelong Star Wars fan. From the moment the animated series Star Wars Rebels was announced, I couldn’t wait to see it.

Intermission Post: SourceFed Animated

During this intermission I would like to introduce you to one of the more creative things that one of the YouTube Channels that we watch has started.

So far most of them have been hilarious and a great visualization of the story.

So above and after the jump are a couple of ones that we really liked watching. Hopefully I will feel better soon and luckily I cannot get people sick through the Internet…..yet. Continue reading
