REBEL GENESIS: FRIENDS IN DESTINY...


As a lead-in to STAR WARS REBELS, AFICIONADO presents a series of images featuring characters, events and history linked to the ultimate creation of the Rebel Alliance against the Empire.

They'd grown up together within a barren wilderness of heat and struggle; they'd dreamed dreams of adventure and heroism beyond the furthest galaxies, and called themselves the shooting stars that could never be stopped. But times and people ultimately change, even on a planet furthest from the brightest centre. Biggs Darklighter's departure from Tatooine to attend the Academy would become not only a major upheaval to the life of his farmboy best friend Luke Skywalker, yet it'd also prove an open window to a potential new future. Now briefly reunited with him at Fixer's place in Anchorhead town, the adopted son of Owen and Beru Lars hears surprising news from the dashingly-attired Biggs- that he will not allow himself to be drafted into the Imperial Navy having become a first-rate pilot, instead deciding to join a more worthy cause he believes in: the Rebel Alliance- a wind to shake the stars, rapidly growing in defiant strength and bold action against the Empire as it tightens its iron hand in planetary subjugation. So young and innocent, the romanticism of Bigg's decision-making quickly stirs Luke's enthusiastic mind and soul, even if it is tinged with the sadness that he may never see his adventurous partner again. But such isolation from events around him will not last for long. Luke may seem confined to Tatooine due to the needs of his foster parents, yet future's tide will sweep him into the maelstrom of the galactic struggles most desperate hours- the rescue of a captured Princess, his journey into and self-discovery of the Force, and partaking in an epic space battle, once more reunited alongside Biggs, that will see his courage and personal strength tested like never before...

The story of Luke Skywalker, A New Hope, has begun...
