Eagle-eyed Star Wars Rebels fans were able to point out some of the cameos that were made in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. From The Ghost, the show’s flagship transporter, to Chopper, the crew’s droid with an attitude, it was fun to see that even the animated show characters get a little nod. Now it looks like one of them will be paying a visit to the animated show. Rumors started to swirl that Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) could appear in a sequel or another Star Wars film. It’s unlikely that Jyn would make an appearance unless the writers have something else up their sleeve, but one character that is confirmed to appear is one we’ve already seen in the Clone Wars animated series.
According to a trailer, Saw Gerrera will be back for an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels, and he will be voiced by none other than Forest Whitaker. Check out more on the story below.
Star Wars Rebels The Complete Season 2 Blu-ray | DVD
Starring Taylor Gray, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, Jr. Freddi Prinze, Steve Blum
Walt Disney Studios
Release date: August 30, 2016
Picture the quality in sound, visuals, and storytelling of a television series like Game Of Thrones, and then imagine those qualities in a CGI-animated show that’s relatable to both children and adults, and you’d have Star Wars Rebels.
Set within the nearly two decades between the Episode III and Episode VI live-action feature films, Rebels introduces a new hero to the Star Wars universe — Ezra (Taylor Gray), a young orphan from Lothal, which is one of the Imperial-occupied Outer Rim worlds. In Season 1 of the series, Ezra — who previously made his way in life as a petty thief — joins the crew of the rebel ship Ghost, piloted by the Twi’lek Hera (Vanessa Marshall); Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), a Jedi survivor of the Order 66 massacre; the gruff Lasat Zeb (Stephen Blum), Sabine (Tiya Sicar), a teenaged Mandalorian weapons expert and artist; and C1-10P aka “Chopper,” an astromech droid C1-10P pieced together from scraps by Hera.
Those who tuned in yesterday to the Season 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels were treated to an epic clash between Jedi, Inquisitors, Sith Lords, and Darth Maul. Geeks Of Doom was invited earlier this week to the hour-long premiere of the episode, where we sat with fans and journalists to get the low down on what exactly happened during “Twilight of the Apprentice,” and what could possibly happen next for the Disney XD animated series. Plus, we learned a few geek things that could pique your interest.
Check out here below what executive producer and creator Dave Filoni and executive producer Simon Kinberg had to say about the Season 2 finale and that future of Star Wars Rebels.
The holiday season is upon us, and if you are looking for that perfect gift for your kids, or your geeky significant other, you need look no further. Put Me In The Story has two spotlight books for your little ones. The first, Star Wars: The Force Inside, has your little Jedi exploring the nature of the force to decide if he/she is destined to become a Jedi Master or a Dark Lord of the Sith. The second, Star Wars Rebels: Battle Plans From Darth Vader gives you access to Darth Vader’s battle plans. Does your child (and by child, I mean you) use them for good or for evil?
