Rebels gets 3 Emmy nods for final season

Star Wars Rebels has been nominated for three Emmys for the show’s fourth and final season: Children’s Program, Sound Editing, and a Music Composition nod for Kevin Kiner.

The show was nominated for Children’s Program last year as well, but lost to Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas.

Game of Thrones has the most nominations this year, with 22, though nothing for Star Wars alumni Emilia Clarke, who submitted in the lead actress category this year.

Donald Glover’s Atlanta got writing, directing and lead acting nod for him, and the show is up for comedy series. He also got a guest actor nod for Saturday Night Live. Laura Dern (for The Take) and Thandie Newton (for Westworld) also got nods in lead and supporting actress categories, respectively.

The origins of Star Wars Kinect’s infamous (and amazing) ‘I’m Han Solo’ song

New York Magazine looks into the genesis and creation of Star Wars Kinect’s “I’m Han Solo,” perhaps the best Star Wars filk since Weird Al’s “The Saga Begins”.

I’m not joking. The song is amazing, and every time I hear it I love it more.

It did cause a lot of fanbros a great deal of distress back in 2012, to which I say: Suck it. If Star Wars can’t dance (as it always has), what can?

John Williams willing to return for Episode IX (and who’s going to tell him no?)

In an interview regarding his Oscar chances this year, composer John Williams says that he’s already told J.J. Abrams that he’ll return for Episode IX. “I would very much like to complete that,” he told Variety.

Williams is eligible for both The Last Jedi and The Post this year. He’s received 50 nominations over his career and won 5, including one for the original Star Wars.

Before IX, Williams will be contributing a theme for Solo.
