Rebels wraps up their second season tonight – and deals with some old Clone Wars business – with tonight’s one-hour ‘Twilight of the Apprentice’. IGN has an interview with Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Ashley Eckstein where they address the return (again) of Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Ahsoka. Eckstein also chats on StarWars.com.

Rebels begins at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Disney XD. And yes, there will be a season three, probably beginning in the fall.

Comic review: Legacy #18 wraps up the conflict between the Imperial Knights and the Sith and Darth Wredd, with Ania Solo and her friends caught up in the middle. Jawajames gives it a big thumbs-up for staying true to the characters and giving us a big epic Star Wars battle.

Out this week: Darth Maul, Son of Dathomir #1

It’s our first fully canon comic, due to being based on scripts and designs originally conceived for the show. Also coming this week is the second trade collection of the Ania Solo Legacy, Outcasts of the Broken Ring.

Comics aside, our next book releases will be William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return and the Crucible paperback, both on July 1.

Interview: Joe Schreiber on Maul: Lockdown

Joe was gracious enough to discuss the character of Maul and other aspects of Lockdown, including his collaboration with Jim Luceno to have it connect with Darth Plagueis. Having previously brought the living dead to Star Wars in Death Troopers and its prequel, Red Harvest, Schreiber is no stranger to the darker side of the galaxy far, far away.
