Lucasfilm has released a new batch of images from The Last Jedi. None of them are new, exactly – they’ve all debuted in various publications – but it’s nice to get these out and about sans watermarks and crops. Check them all out at our Facebook.
→ Did Topps show us Luke Skywalker’s final costume? It’s not really much of a departure from what we’ve already seen him in, but since when has that ever stopped anything?
The fourth and final season of Rebels will air throughout the fall in mostly one-hour blocks. Here’s the 2016 schedule:
Monday, 10/16 – “Heroes of Mandalore” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/23 – “In the Name of the Rebellion” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/30 – “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender”
Monday, 11/6 – “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers”
Monday, 11/13 – “Rebel Assault”
Episodes will air at 12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD. (This isn’t a huge departure from previous seasons, where anyone with the app could watch the show early. The extended airing times haven’t put a stop to that, either.) Rebels Recon will continue to be posted after the 9:00pm showing.
They’ll return after the hiatus – and The Last Jedi – to finish off the season. The finale is “so secret that only a few people on the production team know how it will end,” Lucasfilm said in the release.
I wouldn’t put any bets on Han encountering a snot-nosed kid named Kyp there, though at least this time around there’s no Solo daughter (…hopefully) for him to creepily flirt with a few decades down the line…
Buried in a look at the Oscar hopefuls, Variety reports that The Last Jedi will have its world-premiere on December 8, a week before the U.S. release. That’s pretty much in line with past premieres. For those of us at home, all we can hope for is a red carpet livestream, which Lucasfilm did for The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
