With so much going on in the world of Star Wars, I recap some of the latest releases with a new Unboxing Star Wars video, with Yowie and Baby Jawa. We review ‘Brothers of the Broken Horn’ from Star Wars Rebels (yay for the return of our beloved pirate captain, Hondo Ohnaka!), the new Battlefront: Twilight Company novel, Shattered Empire comics, and even talk about LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales and the new Insider issue. Brought to you by the letters S and W!
Hondo returned in tonight’s ‘Brothers of the Broken Horn.’ Poor guy has fallen on hard times. Also, Pablo reveals a bit about Sabine.
A cute new Duracell commercial for the kid in all of us. We’ve come a long way…
Master troll George Lucas was among the luminaries asking J.J. Abrams about Star Wars and his other projects for Vanity Fair.
The new Inquisitors debuted on tonight’s ‘Always Two There Are’, and Recon shares a clip of Sarah Michelle Geller at NYCC earlier this month. Also, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo talk about (and tease) about the Inquisitors, and a question about TIE fighters.
There’s also a new interview with Filoni over at IGN, where he goes into a little more detail (though not that much) on the Inquisitors.
Next week: Hondo!
This being the internet is 2015, there’s no lack of fan remixes and variations on the latest trailer for The Force Awakens. Here are a few:
Andi takes a look at tonight’s Rebels episode, ‘Relics of the Old Republic’ with Dave Filoni, Dee Bradley Baker, Ashley Eckstein and Pablo Hidalgo
Also, which pronunciation of AT-AT is correct? (Spoiler: Either, c’mon.)
While the music in the latest trailer for The Force Awakens obviously uses John Williams’ original work from the previous Star Wars installments, it’s not a newly composed track from the composer, as many of us originally assumed. /Film digs in a little and comes up with a few names.
Below, a version of the trailer music with the distracting volume fluctuations for dialouge normalized. (via)
I was honored to be a part of The Trailer Council last night along with Tricia Barr (Fangirl Blog/Fangirls Going Rogue), Justin Bolger (The ForceCast), Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi), Nanci Schwartz (Tosche Station), Bethany Blanton (The Star Wars Report), and Mark Newbold (Jedi News/Radio 1138), hosted by Full of Sith’s Bobby Roberts. We started recording this 10/15 minutes after the drop, and I wasn’t entirely with it yet (NEWS MODE) but it was fun! (Last night’s reaction actually came a bit after that.)
James (and Yowie) recorded his first watch for Youtube:
More reactions coming in the tweet roundup! Stay tuned.
Okay, now down to business.
