Ezra's and Kanan's battle way in Star Wars Rebels

Recommended Posts

I saw Ezra and Kanan's battle technique in Star Wars Rebels.

It seems they don't kill stormtroopers and other enemies. They just try to reflect and deflect blaster bolts and cut E-11 blaster rifle instead of killing.

And they seem to struggle the fight with just fool stormtroopers.  If they were Revan and Meetra, they would have already cut their head and hands and kill imperial commander and sith inquisitor.

 

1. Why don't they kill stormtroopers and enemies?

 

2. Why do they struggle with just weak solider?

1. They only seem to kill as a last resource. After all his recent experience (learning from his visions with Yoda that fighting was what doomed the Jedi) Kanan seems to be much more of a pacifist than the rest of the cast. Ezra is his student, so it seems reasonable that he's avoiding senseless murder in this season (though he has murdered stormtroopers in the past).

 

2. Kanan was a padawan that didn't formally finish his training until recently and Ezra is the student of a former padawan that didn't formally finish his training until recently. They're not supposed to be OP mary sues like Revan and other EU characters.

And it's also because it's not the Jedi way

@@syainkn moved your thread to the Star Wars forum since this is not JK related.

 

 

On topic though, you also have to keep in mind Rebels is a kid show. They try to avoid showing killing as much as possible.

Though this season we've seen almost all of the imperial characters die in a very gruesome and explosive fashion

In some ways, yeah. But I look for this stuff in the cinematography point of view. The camera angles they tend to use usually only imply that the people are killed. Either it happens off screen or the act is covered by something on screen, etc. It's interesting. They leave a lot to your imagination. A good example is the episode where the Mandolorians were killed by the weapon that Sabine built. You don't see it happen, but you see the explosion and you see the aftermath.

 

I think they do a very good job about how they go about violence in a kids show. I'm sure they are forced to be discreet about how they show it, and they do a good job.

It's settled then.

They are Jedi so that they cannot do massacre and offensive movement.

And Disney don't have to show brutal and cruel scenes to kids, so they should purify battle stream and maintain it because fast-finish-battle is not interesting.

i'd also say that since they're fighting an oppressive government, they might not be killing to increase sympathy for their cause, we have some real-life examples of partisans and rebel fighters not killing people on principle
