‘Star Wars Rebels’: 10 Things To Expect From Season 3, Straight From Star Wars Celebration

16 July 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Saturday afternoon at Star Wars Celebration was rebel territory, thanks to an information-packed panel all about “Star Wars Rebels” Season 3, along with the exclusive premiere of the first two new episodes from the animated series. Co-creator Dave Filoni hit the Celebration stage in London alongside “Rebels” stars Tiya Sircar (who voices Sabine) and Sam Witwer (who voices Darth Maul and the Emperor on the show) to talk about what fans can expect to see from the newest season.

In short, it’s a lot. From the introduction of new characters (and maybe a few not-so-new characters) to some major developments from old favorites, along with the kind of reveal that made a grown man sitting in front of me stand up and cheer “Yesss!!!,” Season 3 does not appear to be holding back (even if Filoni had to, just a little bit).

Once Upon a Time's Rebecca Mader Previews Zelena's Hades/Regina Dilemma, 'Bonkers' Season 6 Set-Up

Rebecca Mader was as pleasantly surprised as anyone to recently learn that Once Upon a Time‘s resident wicked witch, Zelena, had a chance at life-long romance, with Underworld overlord Hades, but dismissed it because she felt unworthy.

“Who knew! I did not get the memo,” the British beauty says of the bittersweet development. “That was a really cool moment. Like, “Wait, what? [He has loved me] this whole time??”

'Star Wars Rebels' Season 2 Finale Recap: 'Twilight of the Apprentice'

31 March 2016 8:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 comes to an epic and spectacular conclusion in Twilight of the Apprentice. I can say without exaggeration, and having seen every episode of Star Wars animation since The Clone Wars micro series, that this finale is arguably the best. Season two promised a darker turn with the introduction of Darth Vader (James Earl Jones) and Ezra Bridger's (Taylor Gray) flirtations with the Dark Side of the Force. Twilight of the Apprentice brings both of their journeys to a thundering climax of lightsaber battles. Old foes are revealed, masks are shattered, and gained. The long awaited, sorrowful showdown of an apprentice against her former master finally happens. Complete spoilers follow.

Star Wars Rebels: Twilight of the Apprentice begins with Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), Kanan Jarrus (Freddie Prinze Jr.), and Ezra on the Phantom in hyperspace. They are heading to the forbidden planet of Malachor, as instructed »

Review: ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Takes Dark Turn in Dazzling Season Finale (Spoilers)

30 March 2016 7:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

First Lucasfilm and now parent Disney have been clever about using animation as a means to keep the “Star Wars” franchise alive between movies. But as the dazzling, action-packed one-hour finale of “Star Wars Rebels” – the series set between the movie chapters titled “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope” – made clear, the producers of those programs harbor higher creative aspirations than merely killing time or reminding kids to ask mom and dad for action figures.

Operating with the equivalent of a gloved hand tied behind its back, “Rebels” (and before that “Clone Wars,” also under the stewardship of Dave Filoni, who directed the finale) has deftly interwoven key elements and characters into the narrative while establishing its own core cast. That all built toward a showdown in the March 30 episode (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) that not only significantly incorporated the character of Darth Maul »

Darth Maul Returns in 'Star Wars Rebels' Finale Preview

24 March 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January, a Season 2 preview for Star Wars Rebels teased a connection to The Force Awakens, with the presence of a lightsaber similar to the one used by Adam Driver's Kylo Ren. However, another scene from that footage raised even more questions, a mysterious, cloaked figure who told young Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray) to call him "Old Master." Today we have a new clip from the one-hour season finale, which reveals this mysterious figure is none other than Darth Maul.

Darth Maul first debuted in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, the first movie in George Lucas' prequel trilogy, and even though he was presumably killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), he went on to be a fan-favorite. The animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a Dark Horse comic book revealed that Darth Maul actually survived, rebuilding the lower half of his body »

Saw Witwer has experience playing characters that make us uneasy.  Remember him as a villain in Smallville?  So it should come as no surprise that Witwer will be playing a warden of a mental institution on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.   Deadline reports that Witwer will play Jacob who is the evil and overbearing warden.  He will be joined by Popular alumni Hank Harris who will be playing one of the institution’s mental patients.   In case you didn’t read it on TVline a few weeks ago, Michael Ausiello reported some serious spoiler action in the form of this quote: I
