Kinberg: First season of Rebels is 16 episodes

kinbergIn 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.)

John Morton clarifies Rebels/Episode VII remarks

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!
