It’s Ezra’s short. Since today is a holiday here in the U.S., we’re not planning on doing much else today, but you can check out our most recent Tumblr themes: Humor, concept art and behind-the-scenes.
Bryan at Big Shiny Robot interviews Simon Kinberg about Rebels. He talks about getting to make Star Wars (“like getting a chance to write fan fiction at the highest possible level”) and where the concept of Ezra’s slingshot comes from. There’s also a preview of next week’s Rebels short.
The problem with pink armor. Tracy Gardner on Rebels, Disney and gender riles. I’m hoping we see Sabine repaint her armor every couple episodes or at least every season (think of the marketing potential!) but I do find somewhat disturbing that she and Hera look like they’ll very easily fall into the ‘love interest’ and ‘mom’ roles in regards to Ezra.
New Rebels short, ‘Entanglement,’ featuring Zeb. It’ll be on Disney XD tonight, but you can watch it now.
The Hollywood Reporter debuts ‘an exclusive preview’ of the Rebels character short for Zeb. Seriously, a preview for a short? Ugh.
Finally, we have a release date: Rebels will premiere with a one-hour movie, Spark of Rebellion, Friday October 3rd on the Disney Channel at 9:00 p.m. The series itself will begin Monday, October 13 on Disney XD, also at 9, with the Spark of Rebellion DVD in stores on the 14th.
Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion will also be available to “verified users” on WATCHDisneyXD.com, the WATCH Disney XD app, and On Demand early on September 29.
More than just the snippet we got last week from USA Today, the full Rebels short, “Art Attack,” featuring Sabine Wren gets three minutes of causing trouble for the Empire, doing it artistically.
USA Today has a new short from Star Wars Rebels, with the Mandalorian Sabine Wren tagging some Imperial property.
Is the U.K. getting Rebels in August? A commercial there apparently says October, but this isn’t the first time I’ve heard about the show airing in August. (Recently! In the states!) Honestly, at this point it feels like the only thing we don’t know about Rebels is when it’ll actually air.
“The Machine in the Ghost” is the first of four shorts will air on Disney XD after Gravity Falls, but it’s already live.
