Star Wars Rebels Episode Descriptions, Propaganda Posters, And Plot Details

fb share tweet share

Star Wars RebelsWe’re just a few days away from getting our first look at what a post-Disney buyout Star Wars universe looks like, as the animated series Star Wars Rebels is about to hit the airwaves (some of you will even get to see it starting today). And as we’re on the downward slope, you’d be correct to assume we’re going to see a bunch of promotion between now and the October 3 premiere. This includes a handful of posters, news that we may see an unexpected face pop up, official descriptions of the first six episodes, and even more ways the series may tie in to Star Wars: Episode VII.

Rebels is set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, during a time when the Galactic Empire is tightening its grip on the galaxy. Within this tyrannical setting resistance springs up, and you get your first glimpses of what will ultimately become the Rebel Alliance in the original trilogy. The main story revolves around a crew composed of the young, brash con artist Ezra Bridger, cowboy Jedi Kanan, steel-nerved pilot Hera, trigger-happy Mandalorian Sabine, burly badass Zeb, and sassy astromech droid Chopper.

Star Wars: Episode VII: Get Your First Look At A Chrome Trooper

I’m just going to throw this up here right off the bat to get it out of the way, but there are some potential SPOILERS beyond this point in regards to the upcoming science fiction film Star Wars: Episode VII. Then again, this might all turn out to be nonsense, in which case nothing will be spoiled at all. But if you don’t want to take that chance, I suggest you stop reading.

Star Wars: Episode VII: Oscar Isaac Talks Original Cast, Practical Effects, And Fire

fb share tweet share

Oscar IsaacFans aren’t the only people excited about the impending expansion of the Star Wars universe, especially when it comes to J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII (as much as we want to see Star Wars Rebels, we have to assume that leaked photos from that set would be significantly less interesting and probably not contain images of a partially constructed Millennium Falcon). Many of the new additions to the cast are also huge fans, some who have never lived in a world without that galaxy far, far away, and they’re also pretty pumped up. And while they’re talking in regards to characters and plot details, they’re not shy about sharing their on set experiences. One of these is Oscar Isaac.

Isaac recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly, and while the main topic of conversation was his more immediate work, specifically his upcoming adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Two Faces of January, the topic of Episode VII did come up. You have to assume that’s going to happen in every conversation he has from now until the day he dies. People want to know about this shit, and will even after it has faded into the past.

Star Wars: Episode VII: James Bond Says You’ll Need To Bundle Up On An Ice Planet

Roger-Moore-james-bond-BWNews about J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII seems to come in waves. We won’t hear anything for a bit, then every day for a week there are rumors and set photos and reports and concept art. Some of it has come from unlikely sources, but this latest tidbit comes from perhaps the most unlikely yet, James Bond. Or at least from a James Bond, in this case Roger Moore.

There’s nothing super SPOILER-y in this, but if you’re sensitive to such things, you may want to steer clear.

Star Wars Rebels: The Movie Gets A Trailer And A TV Spot

fb share tweet share

The biggest thing to happen in science fiction between now and the time that Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar drops in early November is probably going to be the premiere of Star Wars Rebels. It may not be Episode VII, the movie we’re all waiting for, but the animated series is the newest official addition to the Star Wars canon, and that’s always going to be met with excitement. As we’re only a week or so away, Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new trailer and TV spot to hype the debut and the ongoing series.

This first video is the trailer for what they’re calling Star Wars Rebels: The Movie, which is, in reality, an hour long special that we’ve been told up to this point is called “The Spark of Rebellion.” Ahead of Rebels regularly scheduled timeslot on Disney XD, it will make its premiere on Disney Channel on Friday, October 3.
