The Force is strong with the Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con trailer that was released this evening as the first public screening for the upcoming new Lucasfilm and Disney TV series began in San Diego.
Of all the Star Wars Rebels clips and trailers released to date, including the extended trailer from only a few days ago, this one pulls the most recognizable situations and characters from the Original and Prequel trilogies. It begins with a holographic message delivering news that Jedi Knight Luminara Unduli survived Order 66 and is currently in Imperial custody. This sparks plans to spring her from captivity.
The Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con trailer goes on to reveal that young Ezra, the newest member of the young rebel group, is Force sensitive and becomes the Padawan of Kanan Jarrus. As he begins to use the Force in battle, the Empire becomes aware of he and his master's existence. »
"Star Wars Rebels" continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion. Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form.

It’s The Inquisitor in action! Here’s the first clip from Star Wars Rebels that gives us a long look at the galaxy’s new big bad (voiced by Jason Isaacs).

The footage from Disney Xd’s hotly anticipated new animated series just debuted at Rebels Comic-Con event Thursday.

I've had several people ask me now if I think "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the best of the Marvel movies so far. That's a hard question to answer, because I think there are many different things that I look for in a film, and none of the Marvel movies scratch the exact same itch. What's safe to say is that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the most charming Marvel movie so far. The primary ensemble (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel) is perhaps the most winning group of characters they've introduced in any of these movies so far, and while it's hard to figure out their dynamic when you just read their names together or even in clips, by the end of the film, this is a family that I would happily follow through any number of movies. I'm not sure I've ever seen »

Tonight featured the Star Wars Rebels panel at Sdcc 2014, in which members of the cast and crew were gathered together. The panel offered up plenty of details, including a clip of the Inquisitor's spinning Lightsaber in action and even a really awesome new trailer for the show (different from what we saw earlier this week) that gives us a glimpse at some familiar characters!
A lot of the panel for Star Wars Rebels went into how the cast and crew worked together, designing the look of the show, inspiration for characters, etc. While this is all very exciting to hear about (especially for big Star Wars fans like me), some of the coolest stuff came from the new footage on display, like this clip of the Inquisitor and his awesome Lightsaber in action:
Other highlights from the panel include (from the official StarWars Liveblog):

Those films “changed the game,” the composer said during the Musical Anatomy of a Superhero panel at Comic-Con on Thursday in San Diego. “It’s the template for ‘The Avengers’ coming up.”
That’s good news for fans of superhero movie music who have seen a bi-polar split between the serious sound of more recent Batman and Superman movies at DC and the triumphant and bombastic sounds of Marvel’s films.

San Diego — After many rumors and wild media speculation, "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan and star Matthew McConaughey surprised Comic-Con's Hall H crowd by making their first appearances at the pop culture festival. And once they hit the stage, it seemed somewhat likely that a new trailer would be screened for the audience. More intriguingly, the duo provided more details on how the movie came to be and what to expect this November. McConaughey, who had shockingly never made it to Comic-Con before, came out first to a wild standing ovation. He revealed he first met for Nolan for three hours without the movie ever being brought up or discussed. "I remember leaving thinking, what was that about," McConaughey recalled. "He liked meeting me and a week later I got the script. I liked it quite a lot and I was in." His character, Cooper, a pilot, engineer and widowed father of two children. »

It’s a big day for superheroes on Twitter—and not just because of Comic-Con.
#75 http://t.co/Caj2N8iTAb— (@ZackSnyder) July 24, 2014
The 75 refers to Batman’s 75th birthday, which was Wednesday. You can speculate all you want about that cowl, but we’re pretty sure we recognize the chin—as well as that look of intense sadness (as seen in the »

Comic-Con fans may want to spin a top to make sure they’re not dreaming: The man behind Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan, made his first-ever appearance at the San Diego fan convention Thursday to show off his upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.
Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean introduced the film’s leading man, Matthew McConaughey, to the crowd of more than 6,000 con-goers packed into the event’s fabled Hall H—the biggest venue at the biggest entertainment gathering of the year.

In an interview with the BBC in London on Thursday, Hamill—who played Luke Skywalker in the original series—spoke briefly about his role in the next installment of the franchise, pointing out that he’s really playing second fiddle to new actors. “It’s really about the new generation of characters,” Hamill said. “We’re just there to lend our support, and grow contractually obligated beards.”
Let’s take a quick break here and consider Hamill’s maybe-joke seriously. »

The #75 is likely a reference to Batman's 75th Anniversary, which is being celebrated at various events throughout the Con. Though, this does beat the photo he sent out yesterday.

One of the items Warner Bros. has on display inside the San Diego convention center is the Batman cowl and cape worn by Ben Affleck in the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Take a look at the photo below, courtesy of Twitter user Dan Didio.
Batfleck costume is in the house! »
Comic-Con launches today, which means lots and lots teases, and while it remains to be seen what Warner Bros. might unveil from "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," a couple of pics circulating online are certainly getting fans talking. This afternoon, another look at Ben Affleck as Batman in the super sequel floated around, with photographer Clay Enos confirming via Twitter it was his pic. Why should we believe him? Well, according to his bio, he's worked with Zack Snyder on "Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch," taking character portraits and more, and it seems he's doing the same here. But leave it Snyder to take it to the next level. Last night, the director tweeted an image of Henry Cavill as Superman wielding a lightsaber (talk about knowing how to get fanboys wet). Was it just a goofy image from the director, or is he somehow suggest that he's now involved in the "Star Wars" franchise? »

Yesterday, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" movie director, Zack Snyder, hit up his official Twitter account to drop this new photo of Henry Cavill, sporting a black hood over the Superman suit while holding a Star Wars sword, which seems pretty odd at first glance. However, the folks over at Batman News believes it might have something to do with the ultra secrecy of the film. They said, there's rumors floating about, claiming security is so tight on the set that Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) all have to wear big black robes when they’re on set and not filming a scene. So, they think that Zack's photo might have something with that plus a little Photoshop fun to include the Star Wars sword. Stay tuned. It's Comic-Con week, so who knows what else we'll see. »
Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014.
Directed by James Gunn.
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro and Peter Serafinowicz with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.
Guardians of the Galaxy was always going to have a hard time against the bigger boys of the Marvel Universe. They are a group that aren’t even c-level players, directed by a man with mostly TV credits and cult movies to his name and a leading cast with no big stars that the likes of Iron Man and Captain America have. But it’s a movie that has defied the odds. Every element has »

Before Marvel Studios released Iron Man in 2008 it was considered a risk. Few non-comic book readers knew of the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist and then Robert Downey Jr. swaggered his way onto the big screen, and the rest is history. Risk has once again been the watchword in the build-up to Guardians of the Galaxy, the tenth film in Marvel’s ever-expanding cinematic universe. Granted, it’s a lot stranger than a man in a metal suit, but Marvel have since proven how adept they are at realising their characters on the big screen. Guardians is their reward for those previous nine pictures, and as directed by James Gunn it’s a delightfully fun ride.
Guardians centres on Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), an adventurer and treasure hunter who finds himself on the wrong side of a manhunt after stealing an orb sought-after by the villainous Ronan »

If the wayward denizens of “Star Wars’” Mos Eisley Cantina rose up and demanded their own starring vehicle, it would probably look something like “Guardians of the Galaxy,” an alt-“Avengers” in which a ragtag band of misfits and mercenaries make the world a safer place almost by accident. An unusually prankish and playful Marvel Studios vehicle, director James Gunn’s presumptive franchise-starter is overlong, overstuffed and sometimes too eager to please, but the cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant — as does Chris Pratt’s winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai. While these “Guardians” seem unlikely to challenge the box office benchmarks set by their Marvel brethren, this inaugural outing should nevertheless inject some much-needed life into Hollywood’s sagging summer fortunes.
Introduced in the January 1969 issue of “Marvel Super-Heroes,” the Guardians have been spun off, recast and rebooted several times over the decades, »
