Her Universe added two Rebels shirts to their site today: Join Rebellion (adult/youth) and Graffiti (adult/youth.) Ashley Eckstein has also been teasing several new products: A Star Wars logo cardigan, a new dress, and Vader earrings.
Two new Star Wars novels that are coming out next spring have had their release dates changed slightly, Del Rey informs us today. Kevin Hearne’s Heir to the Jedi moves back two weeks, from February 17 to March 3. Meanwhile, Paul S. Kemp’s Lords of the Sith only jumps back a week, from April 21 to April 28. Our book release page has been updated.
Both novels will be considered part of the canon.
Things continue to be slow…
→ The rumor/spoiler parade just doesn’t end at Making Star Wars: Do Han and Chewie go on a mission? Does a hero dress like a stormtrooper? And did a set spy get a picture of one of the new kinds of stormtroopers?
The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer was supposed to come out next week… Or so we heard yesterday. It leaked this afternoon, so Marvel made a Hydra joke and released it for real. Well played.
(Now, hopefully this lesson means they don’t announce the Episode VII trailer drop date, when the time comes…)
We don’t usually cover comic solicitations anymore, but Marvel released theirs for January today, and that means an unwatermarked look at the Alex Ross cover for the new Star Wars #1 that’s a homage to Howard Chaykin’s from back in 1977. (Among several other variants.)
There are no real surprises in the copy, but there is a letter from Marvel editor Axel Alonso, which you can see below the cut.
→ Some of the Episode VII crew went out yesterday to celebrate Carrie Fisher’s birthday. The article is from the Daily Mail and thus awful, so here’s the pictures.
→ Daniel Radcliffe has visited the Pinewood set; he knows folks there due to Harry Potter, naturally.
The Rebels Recon for Fighter Flight features Vanessa Marshall at NYCC, Dave Filoni talking about the inspiration for the episode, as well as Ezra and Zeb’s voice actors, Taylor Gray and Steve Blum. Plus, Pablo!
Get a look at the Rebels Vader… As earlier reported, ‘Spark of Rebellion,’ the show’s premiere movie, will be airing Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC.
