Lando came to town in tonight’s Rebels, “Idiot’s Array.” Does Lando lend a certain something to the show? Are we down with the canon pronunciation of “sabacc?” And how jealous are we of Pablo’s sweet VII jacket?
For tonight’s ‘Empire Day,’ we get some in and outs on animation, VIPs on the Empire, and Pablo answers a question about fyrnocks and mynocks.
Ezra goes undercover at Lothal’s Imperial Academy in tonight’s ‘Breaking Ranks.’ The video gives us a look behind the scenes, and Pablo Hidalgo answers (sort of) a question about last week’s episode. Plus a preview of next week’s Hera and Sabine-centric episode.
We didn’t actually see anyone rise, but what the hell. The fourth episode of Rebels aired tonight, and we finally got to see the Inquisitor in action, among other things. And Pablo answers a question about the Inquisitor and the Sith.
Meanwhile, Dave Filoni discusses the episode’s big spoiler over at IGN.
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.
Del Rey has posted video of the A New Dawn panel from SDCC.
Shelly Shapiro, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo explain how Lucasfilm is handling canon and Legends. A nice roundup of quotes from the SDCC book panel.
Killing two birds with one stone, Del Rey has annouced a new novel starring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos for next summer. Christie Golden is writing, but it’s based on unaired scripts from The Clone Wars S7, a storyline scripted with George Lucas. It will deal with some very “adult themes,” though probably not the sexy kind.
Meanwhile, comic fans, Pablo said that we can expect to hear from Marvel about their Star Wars plans at their Cup O’ Joe panel on Saturday (2:45 PDT/5:45 EDT.)
The new Insider has named the stage hosts for next year’s Celebration Anaheim. Returning are James Arnold Taylor (Celebration Stage,) David Collins (Digital Stage) and Gus Lopez (Collecting Track.) There are new hosts for the Behind-The-Scenes stage, which has been the domain of Pablo Hidalgo for the past several cons: Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac McInerney of RebelForce Radio. Is Pablo too busy with his Story Team duties? Will he only be acting as a panelist, in line with his Story Team duties? We worry.
