Star Wars Rebels will return on Monday, February 19 at 9:00 p.m. on Disney XD. The second part of the show’s fourth and final season will air in hour blocks, cumulating in a 90-minute conclusion on Monday, March 5 at 8:30 p.m.
Another Celebration is in the books, and that means another attendance record. Celebration Orlando attendance was more than 70,000 people, StarWars.com says. That’s up from Anaheim’s 65K in 2015, and double our last Orlando outing in 2012. No wonder things got a bit… Messy. Attendees, look out for the surveys and be sure to fill them out.
We learned before the con that the next Celebration won’t be until 2019 – probably skipping the overseas outings that we had in 2014 and 2016. The leading speculation seems to be that we’ll be headed back to Anaheim, but since we didn’t get a location on Sunday we’ll be left hanging for a while longer. On the plus side, Pablo made a cannon canon.
In the meantime, here are a few other things we learned that I never got around to writing up, because cons are crazy.
A second excerpt from Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn appeared today, this time in the U.K.’s Express. It’s from the opening chapter, and features a key recanonization – the character’s full name, Mitth’raw’nuruodo.
Mon Mothma resigns from the Senate and meets up with the Ghost crew on this week’s “Secret Cargo.” In Recon, Andi Gutierrez chats with Taylor Gray, Henry Gilroy, Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo about the episode, while Pablo answers a Thrawn question.
