Dave Filoni explains why the Empire – and Rebels – needs the Inquisitor. Sounds a lot like some of the stuff the EU had Mara doing, doesn’t it?
Lest we forget there’s a Celebration coming up in the spring, StarWars.com has provided us with a few deadlines and reminders.
First of all, Dave Filoni is, once again, the convention’s first confirmed guest. Because of course Dave Filoni is going to be there. By April, we’ll presumably have seen the first season of Rebels and be all geared up to hear about the second.
Also returning is Gus Lopez and his Collecting Track and the Art Show. What’s new is a Podcast Stage, which is bound to be… Something. There’s also deadlines for fan programming submissions, fan-built props and fan tables. Media registration opens October 15.
First premiering on Disney XD on Monday night, the clip of the first seven minutes of Star Wars Rebels is now online for all to enjoy! (Well, most to enjoy: Apparently it’s region-locked to U.K. viewers.)
Disney XD showing the first 7 minutes of Rebels tonight. Tune into the channel at 8:45 for a preview of the cartoon, after the Disney XD premiere of Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars (7:30-8:30pm ET/PT).
The Clone Wars soundtrack album is coming, composer Kevin Kiner told Star Wars Underworld.
Shelly Shapiro, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo explain how Lucasfilm is handling canon and Legends. A nice roundup of quotes from the SDCC book panel.
I was lucky enough to see the preview screening of Star Wars Rebels in San Diego, and to sum it up: Rebels is awesome. We were asked not to spoil the premiere episode, so I’ll give my general impression and touch on a few things we already know to be in the show.
Where’s Greg Weisman? Bryan Young points out some weirdness regarding Weisman and Rebels at SDCC. Weird – if he’d left Rebels for something else, even something secret and non-Wars, why answer the way he did? Why fav Bryan’s tweets about his absence? Something here is definitely fishy.
James talks to Adam Bray, author of Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide, at San Diego Comic-Con.
