Time to head back to the galaxy far, far away. Or at least the animated version.
The first, full trailer for the second season of Disney Xd’s Star Wars Rebels was released on Thursday with old faces and new enemies popping up to take on the squad.
The trailer teases the return of Darth Vader (with James Earl Jones also returning to voice the character) as well as Captain Rex from The Clone Wars series. The gang is also set to take on a host of new enemies after the events of the first season and a clash with Vader is clearly an end game following the special, The Siege of Lothal, that premiered over the summer.
The series is part of the new Star Wars canon and it’ll be interesting to see if there are any links with The Force Awakens when that premieres later this year. »

"It is time!" Disney makes the announcement in its new teaser for "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar," the "Lion King" sequel coming to the Disney Channel on Sunday, November 22. The movie event will lead into "The Lion Guard" TV series, which will premiere in early 2016.
"The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar" introduces Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, who is destined to become leader of the Lion Guard. The Lion Guard is like the African savanna's version of The Avengers, a team of animals made up of the Pride Lands' fiercest, bravest, fastest, strongest and keenest of sight. As Kion looks to assemble new members, he doesn't call upon a group of lions to serve with him as tradition dictates, but instead chooses some of his friends whom he believes best exemplify these heroic qualities -- Bunga, a fearless honey badger; Fuli, a confident cheetah; Beshte, »

“We’re the only ones who come out here on visitors’ day,” says James Earl Jones in a farm-bred accent several notches folksier than the voices of CNN, Mufasa, and Darth Vader. He and Cicely Tyson are seated across a card table and surrounded by the accoutrements of old age — crutches, wheelchairs, and other flotsam. None of it belongs to Jones, who is 84, or Tyson, who doesn’t give her age but is reportedly 90. These are only props, strewn across the back half of a large rehearsal room on 42nd Street. Flynn Earl Jones, James’s son and assistant, is sitting in a far corner of the room, looking over notes.Behind the actors, a large piece of drywall stands in for the ramshackle nursing home whose front porch they’ll occupy when the Broadway revival of The Gin Game opens on October 14. Though their offstage appearances tend to be »

Now that Star Wars and Disney are in the same family, it was only a matter of time before someone made a brilliant mashup like this. After all, Disney runs the Happiest Place on Earth and Star Wars covers the Coolest Places in the Galaxy. When they combine you get "Star Wars: Where Dreams Come True," a truly magical mix of the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens," and Disney characters from "Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King," "Frozen," "Snow White," "Dumbo," "Aladdin," "Peter Pan" and many more. It fits. (The Millennium Falcon always was kind of like a magic carpet, no?)
The video comes from PistolShrimps, with a few Belle crossovers, a nice shot of Maleficent as a dragon, a genius cameo for hyenas, one really sad (but kinda hilarious) scene for poor Olaf, and -- of course -- the inevitable use of James Earl Jones, »

Ever since Disney bought LucasFilm, there's been a regular influx of mash-ups that hinted at the endless crossover potential. Today, the internet peaked on that front, with this amazing YouTube clip.
Made by YouTuber Pistol Shrimps, the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Disney Mashup" has Daisy Ridley's Rey become a variety of Disney Princesses, because... of course.
But really, what does that matter when Aladdin and Dumbo are flying with X-Wings and Tie fighters? You know, how you always dreamed they would?
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out in the UK on December 17, and as you can tell, we are very excited about it. »
In “All Howl’s Eve” (airing Sunday at 8/7c), while Ernie and Judy travel to New York City’s Central Park Spooktacular to intercept an evil wolf serum, K.C. (played by Zendaya) and Bff Marisa (Veronica Dunne) throw a Halloween bash at the house. Hoping to bolster her confidence in front of River, the new boy in school, K.C. adopts one of her worst “undercover” guises ever, »
There.s only one movie on the docket this week, one step taken further into the depth of the fall season, but it looks like a good one. Matt Damon settles down for an extended stay on the Red Planet in The Martian. Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer. Rotten Watch Prediction 90% If I were stranded on Mars for a period of time, I would need exactly three things to survive: Ben and Jerry.s Cake Batter Ice Cream, The Wire Box Set and an audio recording of James Earl Jones saying "This is CNN" to relax and put me to sleep at night. That.s it. I don.t think I would need anything else to survive on the harsh conditions of the Red Planet. I.d »
“He gave a wonderful performance, totally knocked it out of the park,” Friedle tells TVLine of Pratt’s take on the Marvel hero in the 2014 film. “The idea of trying to do that just wouldn’t work, so I really had to go in saying, ‘I’ll »
Empire attained maximum ludicrousness in its season-two premiere Wednesday night, reaffirming that it’s not just the most shamelessly enjoyable melodrama on TV, it's the most politically daring. Calling it a black Dallas or Dynasty doesn’t do it justice; it’s not just one of the goofiest nighttime soaps in TV history, it’s hands down the most aggressively political, always positioning its overwhelmingly African-American cast in relation to a still mostly white medium that doesn’t think about whiteness as a kind of culture, too. From the placement of illustrations of pop-culture icons to whom Lucious is presumably an equal (Alfred Hitchcock, Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holliday, James Earl Jones) to the continual definitions and redefinitions of blackness, as embodied by the characters' arguments and power-grab schemes, the premiere alone had more to say about the tricky predicament of black entertainers on network TV than any of the think »

“Game of Thrones” fans are already familiar with Gwendoline Christie in her guise as the honorable Brienne of Tarth, but audiences are about to see a very different side of the statuesque thesp thanks to roles in winter’s two biggest films — the final installment of the “Hunger Games” franchise, “Mockingjay – Part 2,” and Episode VII of cinema’s most beloved sci-fi franchise, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
For Christie, a classically trained method actor who graduated from Drama Centre London, the most compelling aspect of all three projects is their commitment to diversity, especially in regards to providing roles for women that eschew the traditional, often stereotypical narratives that many female characters are forced to follow in film.
“It’s great to be involved in three big franchises, but [they’re] big three big franchises that are looking to expand our consciousness about each other as human beings, and that’s very exciting, »

This year's Emmy nominees in major comedy categories include Anthony Anderson in "Blackish," Don Cheadle in "House of Lies," Andre Braugher in "Brooklyn Nine Nine," Tituss Burgess in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Keegan-Michael Key in "Key & Peele," and Niecy Nash in "Getting On." If any three of them win, they will double the amount of black series cast members ever to win comedy Emmys. Three black performers have won Emmys in lead and supporting comedy categories. The last African-American winner was Jackée (Harry) in 1987 for her supporting role as the saucy Sandra on "227." Before that, Robert Guillaume picked up a supporting actor Emmy for "Soap" in 1979 and a lead actor Emmy for its spinoff "Benson" in 1985. Isabel Sanford won for playing Louise "Weezy" Jefferson on "The Jeffersons" in 1981. The guest actor comedy Emmys have a slightly better track record. Before Uzo Aduba picked up her guest actress trophy for "Orange is the New Black" last year, »

Next season, the titular hero of "The Flash" will face a villain named Zoom, and the mysterious bad guy has officially been cast.
Variety reports that actor Tony Todd ("Candyman," the "Final Destination" films, "Chuck") will voice the villain, who shows up in episode two of the series's upcoming second season. And according to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, showrunners took inspiration for the character -- and Todd's casting -- from an iconic source.
"Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh's voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different," Kreisberg explained to Variety. "Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader - this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, »

The Internet needs to stop killing off people who aren't actually dead. James Earl Jones is the latest star to fall victim to a death hoax. The 84-year-old actor is still very much alive, but after a parody website posted news of his supposed demise many thought he had passed away. The link, however, took users to a page that declared, "You got owned!" Not everyone caught onto the hoax, as Facebook saw the death announcement and posted the news on the social media platform. But rest at ease, readers. Mufasa is still very much alive and will even be voicing the former lion king in the new TV movie sequel, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. Rob Lowe, who is voicing grown-up »
The Flash season 2 looks certain to expand the show's scale - the writers are adding a new primary antagonist called Zoom, possible sidekick Wally West and alternate-universe Flash Jay Garrick. Today, there's been news about two of those three things.
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said this of the casting:
"Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader -- this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, »
Some more news today about two of the key additions to the cast of the second season of The CW's "The Flash". First up iconic gravel-voiced actor Tony Todd ("Candyman," "Final Destination") has scored the voice role of Zoom, the major antagonist for the season.
Following the events of the first season, the second episode of the new season sees the return of Reverse-Flash who is getting a makeover and becoming 'Zoom'. Like last season, there will be a mystery as to who - or even what - is under the suit and the big reveal will take place a lot later than that of the Reverse Flash's identity in the first season. Speaking about Todd's hiring, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells Variety:
"Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated the actor's voice... this year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of »

During The Flash's Comic-Con panel last month, the show's producers confirmed that the main villain in Season 2 will be Zoom, who is said to be faster than both Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh). Today, Variety reports that the villainous Zoom character will be voiced by Tony Todd. Much like last season's Reverse Flash mystery, part of Season 2's story line is exploring who is actually in the Zoom suit. Here's what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about bringing in Tony Todd to provide Zoom's voice.
"Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh's voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader - this iconic voice coming out of this mask. »
It looks like The Flash has found its big bad for the upcoming second season, with Variety reporting that Tony Todd (Candyman) will lend his voice to the villain Zoom and will make his debut in the second episode.

Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”
