Tish Paul talks Star Wars fandom and Athena’s Daughters 2 with the Fangirl Chat podcast.
Rumor: BB-8 has a secret. Compartment, that is.
As Rebels returns with ‘Path of the Jedi,’ and some interesting implications for the galaxy (or at least the Jedi) as a whole, so does Rebels Recon. Next episode airs January 19, and will be online next week.
Discounted Disneyland tickets for Celebration Anaheim attendees. The tickets will only be valid April 13-April 24.
Since this morning, both The Hollywood Reporter and The Wrap have backed up the report, and /Film says a source hinted to them that “one of the film’s action sequences might have been choreographed by the team.”
Here’s a fight scene from (the end of?) The Raid 2 featuring Uwais and Rahman in what appears to be the world’s most spacious industrial kitchen. Warning, it gets pretty bloody:
We’re back! Well, everyone else is back. Tweets, yay.
#WheresHera? (and sometimes Sabine.) Guess who’s still missing from lots of Rebels merchandise? I guess folks really love us harping on this stuff, huh?
Last night brought Rebelscum with a listing of The Force Awakens toys that are currently being solicited. Hasbro has covered their tracks pretty well as far as Episode VII information – most everything is ‘hero’ and ‘villain’ and such – but Making Star Wars has some analysis. There is a remote control droid that I fervently hope is BB-8, because who doesn’t want that?
(And don’t forget, spoilerphobes, that we may have already seen a Black Series leak.)
In any case, don’t expect to see these toys legitimately at the upcoming Toy Fair in New York – Hasbro sent out a press release that they won’t be showing any of their The Force Awakens stuff. Pity, because certainly they have something that only ‘reveals’ the same things we saw in the trailer? Like, say, a remote controlled BB-8? An X-wing? Rey and her speeder? Perhaps they’re saving those sort of reveals for Celebration or SDCC?
What’s up with the Jedi Temple? Mike Cooper at Eleven-ThirtyEight takes a look at how the Jedi Temple has been portrayed in the new canon – and what it might mean for the old canon.
All three prequel films will be screened in 3D at Celebration Anaheim, we hear from the Star Wars Insider via Yakface.
Although The Phantom Menace 3D went into wide release in February 2012, the remaining 3D releases were “postponed” in early 2013, not long after the Disney sale/Episode VII announcement. Attack of the Clones 3D was shown at Celebration Europe in July of that year, but this will be the first chance for the public to see Revenge.
The original trilogy screenings at Celebration Anaheim will be in standard 2D.
