Star War Rebels gets a launch date

9 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hour-long intro Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion is coming this autumn.

As Disney’s continuation of the cinematic Star Wars universe continues to develop, and we inch slowly towards Episode VII’s December 2015 release date, we will shortly have a tie-in to watch while we wait.

Star Wars Rebels, the animated televisual tale of the Rebel Alliance’s early days, has now been confirmed to reach screens worldwide on 3 October. If you have access to Watch Disney’s website or app, you can watch the opening episode as early as 29 September.

Launching the series will be Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion, an hour-long special which will serve to introduce the characters and themes of the show, which takes place five years before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Created by The Clone Wars’ Dave Filoni with help from X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s Simon Kinberg, »

18 August 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Star Wars Rebels is an upcoming CGI animated series produced by Lucasfilm and Lucasfilm Animation. It is set 16 years after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and 5 years before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in a time which the Galactic Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledglingrebellion against the Empire is taking form.

Last Week, Disney Xd released the first Star Wars Rebel short film “Ghost in the Machine” which focused on the animated series’ new astromech droid Chopper. This week Disney released another Star Wars Rebels short film titled “Art Attack” which follows Sabine Wren. The series is scheduled to premier in October 2014 as a one-hour special on Disney Channel, and will then air as a series on Disney Xd channels worldwide. Watch both shorts below:

New Star Wars Rebels Short “Art Attack” Shows off Sabine and Her Unique form of Rebellion

18 August 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney Xd has released a Star Wars Rebels short online.  The animated series will take place about 14 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and centers on the fledgling rebellion as the Empire hunts down the last of the Jedi Knights to secure rule of the galaxy.  While we've had featurettes introducing the villains and even the first seven minutes of the series, this short is interesting because it directly introduces a character even though I'm not sure this will be part of an episode.  If it stands alone, it's a neat way of introducing Sabine (voiced by Tiya Sircar) without any talking heads explaining who she is. Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars Rebels short, "Art Attack".  Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney Xd this October, and also features the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr., David Oyelowo, Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, and Steven Jay Blum. »

Star Wars original cuts on Blu-ray: the evidence

18 August 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rumours suggest that original cuts of Star Wars are heading to Blu-ray. But how likely is that? Ryan weighs up the possibilities...

For many Star Wars fanatics, the special edition release of the Original Trilogy back in 1997 was a bittersweet moment. On one hand, it offered us the chance to see George Lucas's space opera films in their natural habitat: on a huge cinema screen.

Then there's the restoration to consider: Lucasfilm took the original Star Wars negatives from its archives and cleaned them up, removing years of dirt and scratches, and restoring the colours to their original balance. Thanks to the efforts of people like effects supervisor Dave Carson and his team, Darth Vader's outfit was once again black and imposing, not an embarrassing shade of faded blue.

During this process, however, George Lucas decided to make a number of small yet significant alterations: the insertion of new effects shots, »

Star Wars: Our New Dawn

15 August 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The What?:  It’s a column on Star Wars news and rumors and therefore contains Spoilers and Speculation. If you’re not into those things, well, you're rookie status is showing.

This Week: The pieces have begun to come together and now I’m feeling a little bit better about the Expanded Universe getting the big boot before Star Wars: Rebels and Episode VII.

Hello LucasFilm Story Group!

Do you remember that scene in Hook where all the lost boys are on Rufio's side until a little kid (Pockets? Patches?) stretches his face out to get rid of the wrinkles and he says "Oh There you are, Peter?"

That just happened with me and Star Wars: "Oh There you are, post-Avengers MegaFranchise."

Up until now it looked like Jj Abrams was going to get to call the shots like he did with Lost, Fringe and the Star Trek reboot, »

‘Star Wars Rebels’ 3-Minute Short: Chopper Saves the Day

11 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While all eyes may currently be on Star Wars: Episode VII, which doesn’t release in theaters until late next year, Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm’s first trip into canon together is actually the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels. Set between Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, Rebels will chronicle the creation of the Rebel Alliance, whose mission is to take down the tyrannical Galactic Empire and restore the Republic.

In a series of character videos, fans were introduced to the series’ leads, Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Twi’lek pilot Hera (Vanessa Marshall), alien warrior Zeb (Steven Blum) and Mandalorian Sabine (Tiya Sircar). These four along with new recruit Ezra (Taylor Gray) are instrumental in getting the Rebel Alliance up and running, but of course, they must also contend with Rebel hunters like Agent Kallus (David Oyelowo) and The Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs »

This Week: No one wants to tell anyone anything, then I get psyched about the New EU.

We all knew they’d inevitably be slow weeks when it came to the newest Star Wars movie news and we’re at the end of one now.

When They Don’t Kill You With Space Insects...

Frank, a Michael Fassbender movie where he wears a fake oversized head and lives with a experimental rock band features Domhnall Gleeson. It’s coming out on August 15th, so people are getting to talk to Domhnall Gleeson, a guy that I think looks the most like Mark Hamill, about his part in Star Wars Episode VII.

Will ‘Expendables 3’ Pre-Release Piracy Hurt Box-Office Revenue?

30 July 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A pirated copy of Sylvester Stallone-starrer “The Expendables 3” hit the Internet last Wednesday. There have already been nearly 2 million illegal downloads of the film so far, with its theatrical debut still 16 days away.

Could this — counterintuitively — actually be a boon for the movie’s distributor, Lionsgate, and put more butts in theater seats when it bows Aug. 15? Some argue that piracy, in this case, could be a big win for Hollywood.

“Leaking a month before its release might just be the best thing that ever happened to ‘The Expendables 3,’” wrote The Verge’s David Pierce, who admitted he downloaded and watched a copy of the movie.

The “two-plus hours of near-flawless action porn” is tailor-made to be seen on the bigscreen, so the illicit copies floating around on torrent sites will only drive up ticket sales, in Pierce’s estimation. “I’m already counting down the days »

26 July 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker and artist Dave Filoni is right at home among the fans here at Comic-Con.

Now, he’s found another creative outlet in his latest project, Star Wars Rebels for Disney Xd. We had a chance to sit down with Filoni one on one to talk about Star Wars Rebels and how it relates to the rest of the Star Wars universe. Read the full interview after the jump. Set in the gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Rebels follows the ragtag crew of The Ghost as they travel around the galaxy, evading the Empire and sewing the seeds of rebellion wherever they can.

Mark Hamill Talks ‘Star Wars’ Return: ‘I Never Thought We’d Come Back’

26 July 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Hamill didn’t think he would ever return to the “Star Wars” universe.

Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars” films — with the first dating back to 1977 — told BBC News he was convinced that the original cast’s story arc had wrapped long ago.

“It was certainly unexpected,” he said. “I already had a beginning, middle and end. I never thought we’d come back.”

The legendary actor also said he was thrilled to step foot on “sets that evoked so many memories.”

“I thought even if they did a third trilogy, we wouldn’t be involved because it is really about the new generation of characters,” he said.

When the franchise was revived in 2002, Skywalker was only seen as a toddler in “Revenge of the Sith.”

In addition to Hamill, original actors Harrison Ford, who was recently injured on set and is “doing really well, »

22 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a galaxy far, far away, a rebellion is forming -- and with it, new heroes are emerging.

An extended trailer for DisneyXD's "Star Wars Rebels" provides an in-depth look at the animated series that takes place after the events of "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith."

The video gives us a better sense of the story and characters. As Obi-Wan Kenobi intones, the Republic has fallen and the Empire is hunting down any remaining Jedi. Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) is a young orphan who is taken under the wing of a surviving Jedi, Kanan (voice of Freddie Prinze, Jr.). They must face down rampaging hunters led by the Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs).

And though things look very bleak, well, we know there's a light at the end of the tunnel. "Our future is uncertain," Obi-Wan notes, "but in time, a new hope will emerge."
