The big Rebels thing going around this week is that a French trailer for the show has emerged. Possible spoilers, natch – but not nearly as many as there are over at Making Star Wars, where they claim to know the entire plot of the first couple episodes!
We also have one possible premiere date – September 30.
The Clone Wars wins two Daytime Emmy Awards. Outstanding Special Class Animated Program and an Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation for Christopher Voy.
Hot on the heels of Making Star Wars’ Rebels tidbits (some of which they repeat,) TFN says they know what fandom has blown up to be the biggest mystery of Rebels: The voice of the Inquisitor. And he’s not an announced member of the Episode VII cast, though he will be familiar to genre fans of various stripes… Head below the cut for possible spoilers.

Last episodes of The Clone Wars move beyond Netflix. They’re now available through iTunes, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Sony, Verizon and VUDU – though it’s worth noting most of these are still options for the U.S. and Canada only.
Tony To joins Lucasfilm as head of production and development. A former executive VP of production at Walt Disney Studios, he’ll report to Kathleen Kennedy and oversee “all live-action and animation production.” For our purposes on the ground, perhaps the most interesting part of the Variety story is this: Lucasfilm has “several TV projects in various stages of development on its slate.” Curious…
Disney Parks has posted two the Rebels clips shown at the Weekends so far… I’ve heard there’s a different one for each weekend, so expect a few more of these.
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.
