Where’s Greg Weisman? Bryan Young points out some weirdness regarding Weisman and Rebels at SDCC. Weird – if he’d left Rebels for something else, even something secret and non-Wars, why answer the way he did? Why fav Bryan’s tweets about his absence? Something here is definitely fishy.

John Jackson Miller on canon: “The universe is the same.”

star-wars-a-new-dawnNewsarama has another interview with John Jackson Miller about A New Dawn.He does have some wise words on canon and the Legends label:

I really think it’s a mistake for people to play the canon/not-canon parlor game. What they said when they made the announcement is that the previous material wasn’t being discarded, it would be drawn from – inspirations and ideas would come from it. The planets are the same; the species are the same. You know, the Rebels series uses the same manufacturer of the TIE fighters that was introduced in the Role Playing Games years ago. My book revolves around a strategic compound that I introduced back in KOTOR years ago! The universe is the same.

The thing about “Legends,” and that’s the word on the cover of the previous material: Legends can be true, in part or in whole. They inspire, they are sort of like the King Arthur story – parts of that, little bits of that here and there are true.

He goes on to talk about A New Dawn specifically and some of the other things he’s working on. And don’t forget to check out James’ video interview!

Thursday at SDCC: Rebels, Her Universe

Look at these dorks.

Our very own JJ – JawaJames – is at San Diego Comic-Con, and he’s now shared his pictures from Thursday, including the con floor, the Rebels panel, and a few things pre-screening. Amy Ratcliffe had a few thoughts on the screening for IGN, but all I’m seeing on Twitter this morning is praise – even from folks who couldn’t get into The Clone Wars.

Also last night was the Her Universe fashion show – of course, it happened at the same time as the Rebels panel. Tricia collected some tweets and things, and here’s our own Caitlin in her Padme dress. The winners were the ladies of the Back to the Future and Once Upon a Time dresses. And the new Her Universe licensee is Studio Ghibli, which I admit I never would have guessed. A Totoro dress is coming. I expect we’ll hear more today.

The big ticket for Star Wars today – for our purposes, anyway – is the Del Rey book panel (2 p.m. PDT, 5 p.m. EDT) but Hasbro is up at noon PDT/3:00 EDT so there’ll be a lot of toy news coming up as well.
