The Star Wars universe is bigger than ever, thanks to Disney’s new mandate that everything that gets published is in canon, along with the movies. But if all you’ve done is watch the movies and TV shows, there’s a whole half of the universe you’re missing.
Earlier this week, Star Wars Rebels gave us a taste of what’s to come with Siege of Lothal, a television special setting up the show’s future—and it looks like there’s some very dark times ahead for our Rebel friends. Here are three of the must-watch moments, and what they mean for the show’s second season.
You can’t swing a dead womprat on a Star Destroyer without hitting a terminated Imperial officer, Force-choked to death by Darth Vader for some failure or another. But who deserved their termination the most? These dozen would-be heroes of the Empire, that’s who.
Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! It’s another fine day here in my vague post-apocalypse, although any day I can sit and answer your mail instead of running from plague-ridden puppy-scorpions is all right in my book. Today we’re talking about the new Joker, why Daredevil can’t curse, Kryptonian sex taboos, and more!
Good news for you Star Wars Rebels fans. Despite the fact the animated show is set in-between Episodes III and IV, producers Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni have declared that it’s possible for Ezra, Hera, Kana and the others to show up elsewhere in the Star Wars universe — and possibly in the live-action movies as well.
The next Toy Story won't continue the story of the first three. There's another tease of Jared Leto's version of the Joker. Jeph Loeb says Marvel's Netflix shows won't cross over with the films just yet. John Barrowman gets a new series. Plus, Flash set pictures tease the return of Reverse Flash. Spoilers Now!
The last episode of Star Wars Rebels' first season aired last night, and capped off with the reveal of a wider world of Rebellion for our main cast — but it also unveiled the return of a character that signifies great importance not just for the show, but the direction of Star Wars as a franchise itself.
We adored the CG Star Wars TV series Clone Wars and we're enjoying Star Wars Rebels, but this concept art that Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni has shared just reminds us how cool it would be to see another 2D animated Star Wars show.
Well, okay, everyone expects the Inquisitor — and it's no surprise when he starts resorting to torture. So it's up to the Ghost's crew to enact a rescue mission before one of their own ends up in one of the Empire's nastier spots.
When a franchise is around for four decades, it can get impossibly unwieldy to try and grasp its lore — and Star Wars canon is no exception. Here's a guide to the origins of Star Wars Canon, the rise and fall of one of the most prominent Expanded Universes in fiction, and where the saga stands with Disney today.
Billy Dee Williams is back! A young Lando Calrissian snares the Ghost crew in his latest scheme. Yes, long before The Empire Strikes Back, Lando was a smooth-talking rogue — and you couldn't trust him as far as you could throw him. It's a pity no one tries to throw him, actually.
The big tease for this week's episode of Star Wars Rebels was that Frank Oz would be reprising his role as the voice of Yoda. But what was truly interesting was not the return of the old Master, but Ezra's own "Luke on Dagobah" moment and what it reveals about Ezra — and Kanan.
What did Yoda do between Revenge of the Sith and Return of the Jedi? We'll find out in an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels when we encounter Yoda once again—sort of.
This week's Star Wars Rebels picks up where our cliffhanger left off, with the Rebels moving their asset and the Empire in hot pursuit. But when the Ghost's Jedi crew members have another encounter with the fearsome Inquisitor, we're reminded the Dark Side doesn't just have cookies; it's also pretty damn powerful.
Thus far, Star Wars Rebels has been a very good show. It has great writing, fun fight sequences, and a strong sense of what made the original trilogy so appealing. But this week's episode adds something more: the beginning of a larger arc, one that could start to pull our heroes into a fuller Rebellion.
Obi-Wan Kenobi made a disembodied appearance in the pilot of Star Wars Rebels, but has another important character from Clone Wars also had a cameo? Some speculation about last week's episode has just gotten a bit more intriguing.
Most episodes of Star Wars Rebels have thus far focused on Ezra and his relationships with Kanan and Zeb. But this week, we finally take a moment with Hera and Sabine and get a hint at our Mandalorian rebel's backstory. The most intriguing character, however, is the one we never see.
Greetings! Looks like you guys have some political stuff happening, which I know enough to not comment on. All I'll say is that in the future, donkeys and elephants still battle each other — mainly because we built a special donkey-elephant Thunderdome. The donkeys generally don't do well there, either.
This week, Star Wars Rebels gave us our first showdown with the fearsome Jedi hunter known as the Inquisitor. And this Dark Force user has a weapon that makes Darth Maul's double-sided lightsaber look practically quaint.
Did you miss the special ABC broadcast of the Star Wars: Rebels cartoon premiere? You know, the one with the special new Darth Vader scene? If you did, no worries — here's Vader, telling the new villain the Inquisitor to... go out and murder children.
