May the 4th begins, as promised, with the Rebels trailer. (There’s also a short version which I presume is the one playing on TV.) Thoughts? Theories?
If you’re having issues with Youtube, the trailer is live on Disney.com as well.
J.J. Abrams and company get the Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger treatment.
Composer Kevin Kiner (from The Clone Wars) returns for Rebels, and they debuted the show’s theme today at WonderCon. They also showed a clip of Hera and the Ghost in action, which you can see above.
And that’s it, really. I wasn’t really expecting anything major, but even a premiere date would have been nice. Oh well…
UPDATE: There’s a new interview with Kiner on Hero Complex, and a writeup from StarWars.com that also gives us a better look at all the concept art. And Kiner shares some new music in a second video: Is it the theme?
Tweets from the panel below the cut.
Kevin J. Anderson, Dave Wolverton and Mike Stackpole discuss writing Star Wars at Salt Lake City Comic Con with moderator Bryan Young. Second part under the cut.
This one contains a lot of footage we haven’t seen in the previous trailers. And yeah, I’m still a little excited, because no matter how many great Marvel movies we see and subpar Wolverine movies we get, the X-Men were still my first real superheroes.
Last night’s offering from the official Star Wars Youtube channel. Also worth noting, while we’re here: I’ve been doing movie theme days on our Tumblr this week as a way of clearing out the drafts folder (ANH, ESB and today is ROTJ; TPM starts tomorrow) and since I just added a ton of AOTC stuff to drafts, more than I can ever use in one day, thus maybe defeating the whole purpose of doing movie days in the first place…
(Also, question: Are enough of you not on Tumblr that you’d like to see updates on our themes over there? I have been keeping to it, but I haven’t done anything bigger than a day or two on a single theme in a while so I wasn’t sure if it was worth a post here.)
My, what a hard sell you are doing on your Youtube channel, Star Wars. I’m sure this is not in any way making anyone suspicious about anything.
