Rebels renewed for a fourth season

Rebels will survive to fight another day – or at least a season. Lucasfilm and Disney XD have announced that the show will continue for a fourth season next fall, and that we’ll get “more details” and “an announcement” at Celebration Orlando.

The third season of the show is due to wrap up this month, leaving Celebration free and clear for future hype.

Thrawn gets a limited edition cover for Celebration

A special limited edition of Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn will be on sale at Celebration. The hardcover features a full face of Thrawn and printed endpapers, and will come with a not-yet-identified “extra special gift.”

The white cover is the standard edition, while the black cover is a Barnes & Noble exclusive.

The book is out April 11, so if you want the special edition, you’ll have to hold off a few days. Celebration Orlando begins on April 13.
