When the second episode of Star Wars Rebels co-starred C-3PO and R2-D2, you realized they weren’t shying away from recognizable characters. The story of Kanan, Ezra and the rest of the Rebels will primarily take place parallel to anything going on with Obi-Wan Kenobi, the young Skywalkers and more but the Empire is the Empire.
