We only got answers to a few of the questions we had going in there, but the con still loaded up down with plenty of news about Rogue One, Star Wars: Rebels, the Han Solo movie, and more. Here’s all of io9's coverage from this year’s Star Wars Celebration Europe.
Thrawn might not be the only old Expanded Universe character returning to Star Wars canon. Eagle-eyed fan Andy K. sent us this screenshot from the recent season three trailer, which undeniably features the starship of Dash Rendar, the star of Shadows of the Empire—the 1996 book, video game and toyline set in-between …
Thrawn may be the most exciting new arrival in Rebels’ third season, but he’s hardly the only one—sounds like we’re also going to get to meet a young Imperial pilot who wants to defect to the Rebellion,who happens to be named Wedge. But that’s just the tip of the X-Wing of the fun in this giant trailer.
Holy crap. Rebels has a new Big Bad, and it’s an old Big Bad—Grand Admiral Thrawn, the brilliant Imperial military commander who took over the remnants of the Empire in the old Expanded Universe, as revealed in the very first EU novel trilogy by Timothy Zahn.
The Rebels panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe is going on exactly as I type this, but and of course the first question everyone had was about whether Ahsoka Tano survived her climactic duel with Darth Vader in the end of the season two finale. More surprisingly, director Dave Filoni actually gave us a pretty clear…
As the reviews of Batman v. Superman have been rolling in, so have your questions about the suddenly shaky future of the DC movies. But if you’re ick of BvS ‘ BS, we’ve also got how Deadpool 2 will handle Cable’s parentage, why the Captain Britain show was never happening, and how to handle non-nerdy family invading…
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.
