Rebels and The Star Wars Show get Emmy nods

Star Wars fans have several categories to watch at the Primetime Emmys this year. The two big ones for the franchise are Rebels with a nomination for Outstanding Children’s Program, and The Star Wars Show for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.

But when it comes to numbers, there are Star Wars folks all over the map. The late Carrie Fisher is up for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Amazon’s Catastrophe. The Bright Lights documentary that focused on Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, also got two nominations.

Donald Glover’s Atlanta got a total of six nods, including Outstanding Comedy Series and a Lead Actor, Directing and Writing nods for Glover himself. Fellow Solo castmember Michael Kenneth Williams is up for his supporting role in The Night of.

Ewan McGregor goes up against Riz Ahmed for Lead Actor in a Limited Series for Fargo and The Night of, respectively. They got each got a second nod for Narrator (McGregor in Wild Scotland) and Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (Ahmed in Girls).

Other Star Wars actors with nominations include Laura Dern (Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for Big Little Lies) and Ben Mendelsohn (Guest Actor in a Drama Series, for Bloodline).

#WheresRey? Only in the mail, apparently

Remember the Star Wars Monopoly game that launched the #WheresRey campaign? Despite Hasbro’s promises, it turns out that Rey never made to the U.S. version of the game “due to insufficient interest” from retailers, a Hasbro spokewoman told the AP.

People who buy the game here can request a piece from Hasbro – they’ve had just over a hundred requests in North America. The Rey game piece can be found (sometimes) in five other markets, including the U.K. and France.

The #WheresRey campaign did seem to have an impact on Rogue One marketing – Jyn Erso toys did not seem to be in any short supply, and hopefully the trend will hold for The Last Jedi.

The Star Wars Show teases The Last Jedi at D23 Expo

The Star Wars Show is teasing all the stuff we’ll see (or hear about) at this weekend’s D23 Expo. The likeliness of behind-the-scenes content for The Last Jedi seems high. It seems very high.

Andi also mentions a livestream, and you can see the schedule here. It doesn’t seem to include any panels, but Andi will be talking to Ashley Eckstein Friday and Saturday at 1:30 p.m., and Jennifer Heddle on Sunday at noon.
