Kaz and Torra free Yeager and Doza, but Tam is going to be escorted off world by the First Order. Kaz comes up with a crazy plan, using Neeku’s help to upset the platform – literally. The First Order are temporarily thwarted, but return to destroy Kaz and crew…

Celebration roundup: Animation panels, Paul Bettany and Riz Ahmed added

Three Star Wars animation panels will be held a Celebration Chicago: Rebels on Saturday, The Clone Wars on Sunday and Resistance on Monday. The Clone Wars will preview their new Disney+ episodes, while Resistance – which will finish off their first season on two weeks -will preview season 2. (The Rebels panel will not feature any new series announcements, LFL publicist Tracy Cannobbio says.)

Three more guests have been added: Solo’s Paul Bettany (Dryden Vos), Rogue One’s Riz Ahmed (Bodhi Rook) and The Last Jedi’s Hermione Corfield (Tallissan Lintra).

Resistance S1 winds down as the First Order winds up

Star Wars Resistance is officially on The Force Awakens’ turf with ‘No Escape, Part 1’.

Kaz and his friends devise a plan to break out Tam, Doza and Yeager. But before they can, troopers begin bearing down and Kaz and CB-23 are soon on their own. Kaz unites with Torra to save their friends and family, but they soon bear witness to the full might of the First Order.

Rumor: Could there be a third Star Wars TV show in the works?

Two Star Wars TV live-action shows have already been announced for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service: The Mandalorian (which apparently wrapped S1 filming around the same time as IX!) and a yet-untitled Cassian Andor show that will serve as a prequel to Rogue One. Today, Fantha Tracks reports evidence of a third show, which will film in the U.K. – unlike The Mandalorian, which filmed in southern California.

They say the show might be announced at April’s Celebration Chicago. That’s also about the time we expect our first look at The Mandalorian, given reports that Disney will be sharing a first look at Disney+ original content with investors on April 11 – which also happens to be the first day of the con, though panels aren’t expected to begin until the next day.

Lost races, lost racers in Resistance’s ‘The Disappeared’

The First Order’s presence on the Colossus continues to ramp up in Sunday’s ‘The Disappeared,’ the next episode of Star Wars Resistance.

The First Order presence is affecting life on the platform – big races are being cancelled and platformers are mysteriously disappearing. Kaz and Torra manage to successfully free the First Order prisoners, but don’t realize that their actions have put Team Fireball in a compromising position.

Did Hype Fazon really leave the platform? Who else is missing? Hints and more in the clip and photos below the cut.

Star Wars Resistance heads to the Unknown Regions

Poe’s back as things continue to go downhill for Kaz, Team Fireball and the Colossus in ‘The Core Problem’, Sunday’s new episode of Star Wars Resistance. This time, they’re off to explore the Unknown Regions, because that’s something that has historically gone very well in this galaxy.

Poe and Kaz seek out an area of the Unknown Regions that their intel on the First Order is pointing to. After the unsettling discovery of multiple cored and broken planets, they must evade a series of First Order pilots in order to make it back alive.

The clip also reveals just how close the series has gotten to The Force Awakens. Check it out, plus more pics, under the cut.

This has been bouncing around fandom for a few days, but here it is, officially: The Art of Star Wars Rebels is coming out in October.

The Force Awakens comes to ABC on Sunday

The Force Awakens will debut on network TV this coming Sunday (February 17) airing at 8:00/7:00 p.m. on (where else) ABC.

This has no effect the TBS/TNT deal, which is for basic cable rights, not broadcast – The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and the first two trilogies will continue to air there as well.

Stormtrooper disguise shenanigans come to Resistance

Kaz gets hold of some stormtrooper armor in Star Wars Resistance’s ‘The New Trooper.’ I’m sure it will go swimingly.

When Kel and Eila seek out Kaz’s help after accidentally knocking out a First Order stormtrooper, Kaz dons the trooper’s armor in an effort to collect more information on the First Order.

We also learn why the First Order is so interested in the Colossus in the preview clip. That and more pictures under the cut.
