Fulcrum was revealed in last night’s ‘Fire Across the Galaxy,’ and this is the last post where I’m going to dance around that. In ‘Rebels Recon’ they talk about the returning characters, and give us a peek at Rebels S2.
The first six Star Wars movies will get a retelling in LEGO. Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales, a limited 5-episode series, will air on Disney XD “later this year,” per The Hollywood Reporter. The saga will be told through the eyes of Threepio and Artoo:
Set after the Rebel Alliance victory on Endor seen at the end of Return of the Jedi, the droids are regaling the assembly with their adventures that led them to their present situation. An accidental kidnapping leads to a new adventure that progresses to the retelling of the saga in chronological order, from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi.
There’s no exact date yet, but I expect it won’t be long before The Force Awakens release in December.
I’ve avoid saying much about my spoiler policy here on Club Jade, mainly because I firmly believe in taking these things on a case-by-case basis. But there is one hard fact here: I will not treat officially released material as spoilers.
That doesn’t mean I’ll spoil something that’s in The Force Awakens novelization or art book, on the chance they come out before the film does. But any officially released publicity material is fair game. That means trailers, commercials, press releases and anything else that Lucasfilm very clearly wants people to know.
Lucasfilm has confirmed that Darth Vader himself will be showing up for the Rebels season finale, as previously rumored. Of course, the bigger – and more shocking, if it plays out – part of said rumor is still under lock and key, officially.
You get a brief glimpse of him here:
Vader has already appeared on the show once, in holograph form, an extra scene added when ‘Spark of Rebellion’ aired on ABC.
The Rebels season finale, ‘Fire Across the Galaxy,’ will debut Monday, March 2, on Disney XD.
Rebels heads into the finale with ‘Rebel Resolve,’ and Andi chats with Taylor Gray, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Vanessa Marshall about their characters, and Dave Filoni reveals the likely fate of the courier droid. And Pablo answers two questions, including Hera’s exact relation to Cham Syndulla of The Clone Wars.
The next episode of Rebels, ‘Rebel Resolve,’ will air on Disney XD on February 23. It’s the first part of the season finale, which concludes with ‘Fire Across the Galaxy’ on March 2… And it won’t be showing up on XD app first, so everyone has to tune in live.
Given that Lucasfilm really wants us to know that Grand Moff Tarkin is on Monday’s episode, ‘Call to Action,’ it’s probably not surprising that we’re hearing rumblings of more ‘special guests’ from The Clone Wars and original trilogy eras.
But first, here’s a clip of Tarkin in ‘Call to Action:’
