The Force Awakens: Vanity Fair catches up with Pablo (and John Williams)

pablo-hidalgo-lucasfilmRed alert! Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo is in Vanity Fair! We knew him when, y’all. Okay, they also have John Williams talking about The Force Awakens score, but: Pablo! He gives another fab quote on the Legends situation:

…there are great stories told there, but in all honesty they were written in an era where there was no expectation that we were going to add new movies or cinematic content onto that. So they blazed new trails there without the benefit of that knowledge, and they told really cool and compelling stories, but it’s not necessarily the stories that we want to tell on-screen.

→ Someone else got a super-vague quote from Oscar Isaac about Star Wars, this time the improbably named Monkeys Fighting Robots. (Says the woman who runs a site that sounds like it probably hosts porn.)

→ Do you want a (possible) synopsis of The Force Awakens based on all the Making Star Wars rumors? Do you? Because MSW has that for you. Click or not, it’s all you.

Video: Carrie Fisher, Ian McDiarmid and Anthony Daniels backstage at Celebration Anaheim


There’s still content from Celebration dropping, as Carrie Fisher talks to James Arnold Taylor backstage about Leia, the slave outfit, reprising Leia, and poor Gary’s exhaustion. Also joining James backstage are Ian McDiarmid and Anthony Daniels.

Plus there’s the Pablo Hidalgo and Leland Chee interview from the livestream.

Directors Gareth Edwards, Josh Trank to talk standalones at Celebration Anaheim

Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank

Rogue One director Gareth Edwards and Spin-off #2 director Josh Trank will talk Star Wars with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart and Pablo Hidalgo on Sunday morning at Celebration. Dare we hope to actually learn something about their films?

Rebels Recon: ‘Rebel Resolve’


Rebels heads into the finale with ‘Rebel Resolve,’ and Andi chats with Taylor Gray, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Vanessa Marshall about their characters, and Dave Filoni reveals the likely fate of the courier droid. And Pablo answers two questions, including Hera’s exact relation to Cham Syndulla of The Clone Wars.

The second part of the finale will air March 2 on Disney XD – remember it won’t be on the app early.

Rebels discussion: ‘Droids in Distress’


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.)
