Why the Emperor’s Hands need to be in Rebels. Nanci at Tosche Station lays out why she thinks the role should make the jump from Legends. I mostly agree, but I don’t think the actual title is necessary. But between the Inquisitor and Asajj Ventress, there’s certainly plenty of precedent in canon – even if the concept of Emperor’s Hand actually predates both of them.
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.
Rumor: Two voice actors who’ve appeared on The Clone Wars coming to Rebels? No word on if they’ll reprise earlier characters or voice new ones, but there are some (unrelated, maybe?) plot spoilers for the show as well.
The Rebels Recon for Fighter Flight features Vanessa Marshall at NYCC, Dave Filoni talking about the inspiration for the episode, as well as Ezra and Zeb’s voice actors, Taylor Gray and Steve Blum. Plus, Pablo!
Get a look at the Rebels Vader… As earlier reported, ‘Spark of Rebellion,’ the show’s premiere movie, will be airing Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.
‘Spark of Rebellion’ did pretty good, and now the official Rebels premiere has given Disney XD their best numbers ever for an animated series.
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.)
