Star Wars Rebels returns this Monday on Disney X.D. for its final episodes. Two new clips for ‘Jedi Night’ have been released and I think no one is ready for the level of feels that is coming with these episodes!
The first clip is Kanan asking Ezra to come up with a plan to save Hera as he can’t do it himself considering how he feels about her. And the second clip is another powerful moment with Kanan cutting his hair with a wonderful piece of soundtrack by Kevin Kiner!
A third clip has been released!
The theatrical poster for Solo A Star Wars Story has been revealed! It’s in the same style as the teaser posters and it’s featuring Han, Chewie, Tobias, L3, Lando and Qi’Ra.
It seems the poster has already been found in some theaters in the US!
EW has released some great new stills of Solo A Star Wars Story as part of their coverage about the movie! Check them out below!
During an investor call, Bob Iger confirmed that there are multiple Star Wars TV series in development for the Disney streaming service. His exact words were “a few Star Wars series specifically” are being created! He didn’t say if it was live-action or animated but it’s great news that more TV series are coming! According to Iger people will be pleased with the creators they are talking to and once the deal is finalized on the first series, we can expect an announcement!
With Johnson’s trilogy, the new series of Star Wars films and this news, Star Wars has a bright future ahead!
It’s been announced yesterday, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are joining the Star Wars family! They will be writing a new series of Star Wars films separate from the episodic-Skywalker saga films and the Rian Johnson’s trilogy.
“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today. Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting,” said Kathleen Kennedy.
There’s no release date for now, nor any information in which era the movies will take place.
