Rumor: Two voice actors who’ve appeared on The Clone Wars coming to Rebels? No word on if they’ll reprise earlier characters or voice new ones, but there are some (unrelated, maybe?) plot spoilers for the show as well.
The Rebels Recon for Fighter Flight features Vanessa Marshall at NYCC, Dave Filoni talking about the inspiration for the episode, as well as Ezra and Zeb’s voice actors, Taylor Gray and Steve Blum. Plus, Pablo!
Get a look at the Rebels Vader… As earlier reported, ‘Spark of Rebellion,’ the show’s premiere movie, will be airing Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.
‘Spark of Rebellion’ did pretty good, and now the official Rebels premiere has given Disney XD their best numbers ever for an animated series.
Tonight we saw ‘Droids in Distress,’ the second episode of Rebels and (technically) the first official episode. In this week’s Rebels’ Recon, we hear from Lucasfilm folks about making it – and Pablo Hidalgo definitively answers the stormtrooper/clone question. (There’s also a new video teasing the rest of the season.)
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Although fans at NYCC were treated to a whole episode, those of us playing along at home got this clip. Oh well!
The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions Blu-ray and DVD sets coming November 11, per TV Shows on DVD.
James Earl Jones returns to voice Vader on Rebels. Lucasfilm confirms via The Hollywood Reporter the reports that ‘Spark of Rebellion’ will air on ABC on October 26.
Star Wars Rebels debuted to 6.5 million viewers worldwide, a Disney press release says today. The Friday debut on the Disney Channel has 2.7M viewers and did 52% higher than average in the “target demographic.” (Boys 6-11, because of course.) ‘Spark of Rebellion’ airs tonight on the show’s permanent home, Disney XD.
