A look inside Ezra Bridger’s Rebel Journal. Making Star Wars’ Johnamarie Macias is at BookCon, where fans can get a look at some of the the Rebels tie-in, which apparently debuts (along with the show?) in October.
The Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman dropped some info about the show’s unproduced seasons on Twitter. Making Star Wars compiles the tweets.
Simon Kinberg on Rebels and balancing the two trilogies. He doesn’t say too much in this new interview with Screencrush’s Mike Ryan, but hopefully this calms at least some of the worries out in fandom.
In an interview with Collider, Rebels executive producer Simon Kinberg reveals that he wrote the two-part primiere and season finale – and that there are 16 episodes in total.
He also says that the show will have characters “from the original films,” which many are taking as a sort of confirmation that Lando will be appearing… But there is another. (And no lack of other possibilities.)
So our pal John Morton (aka Dak!) had some speculation on Rebels and Episode VII that some on the internet have kind of taken and… run with. They ran pretty far. Now, in an interview with the East County Times, he’s clarified that while he thinks it’s possible that we’ll see Rebels characters in Episode VII, they might not be the main characters as we know them now, and that he has no official knowledge of this: It’s just speculation, same as us.
He also talks a bit about filming Empire Strikes Back. And apparently I have been lax in pointing out that he’s on Twitter as @tapcaf!
Conan O’Brian has some title suggestions for Episode VII. Oh, Conan. The expensive action figures never went away.
Empire is teasing the May the 4th Rebels trailer. They say it’ll air on Disney XD at 11.40 a.m.
The Clone Wars has received four daytime Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Achievement in Animation and Outstanding Special Class Animated Program.
