Spark of the Rebellion 103
The Wookiee Rescue on Kessel was a rescue attempt by the Lothal Rebels to save a group of Wookiees from being slaves to the Empire.


The Rebels arrived at the Spice Mines of Kessel and opened fire on the Imperials giving them a chance to land. Kanan, Zeb and Sabine moved in and fought off the Stormtroopers giving Ezra the opportunity to sneak pass them and release the Wookiees from captivity. With the Wookiees free, they fought alongside against their captors just as three TIE Fighters emerged and fired on the Ghost.

The Ghost led the Fighters away while Kallus' led more Stormtroopers into battle, forcing the Rebels and the Wookiees to take cover. With the Rebels surrounded and pinned down under heavy fire, Kanan told Hera to lure the TIE Fighters away and then come back to perform a 22 pickup, a maneuver where the crew and the Wookiees would hide inside a cargo container and be picked up by the Ghost. In order to give them more time, Kanan came out from cover and ignited his Lightsaber, revealing his Jedi identity to Ezra, the Wookiees and the Imperials.

While fighting off the Stormtroopers, Ezra went after a young Wookiee named Kitwarr, who fled from the firefight and was being chased by a Stormtrooper. He managed to rescue him and remove his binders. But they are cornered by Agent Kallus, until the Rebels showed up just in time to rescue them and escape.
