Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels season 3 interview
The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016  I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.

We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.

And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.

star wars rebels x-wings

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 I got a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator/showrunner Dave Filoni to talk about the future of the Disney XD animated series. I haven’t published the interview yet because I didn’t want it to get buried in the madness that was Comic-Con. But with San Diego behind us, let’s begin to take a look at some of the interesting bits that Filoni revealed.

Star Wars Rebels follows the Rebellion in the five years before Star Wars: A New Hope, but we’ve yet to see an X-Wing appear onscreen. So one of the first questions I asked Filoni is when we’ll finally see some X-Wings in Star Wars Rebels. Find out what he said about Star Wars Rebels X-Wings, after the jump.

Rick and Morty Meeseeks

Adult Swim’s sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty had a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. We spoke with the show’s creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon along with writer Ryan Ridley in a roundtable interview. In only two seasons, Rick and Morty has established a sub-franchise within the show, with two episodes of “Interdimensional Cable.” They said a third episode is possible, but also tease a season three episode that could launch a different recurring element.

“Possibly, yeah, we’re figuring it out,” Roiland said. “It’s very rough on production. It’s not an easy episode to make.We’re introducing something amazing we can’t say much about, but there’s probably room for both ultimately. I’d be down to do it. The connective tissue has to be different and Ridley’s got a really good pitch that [Harmon] hasn’t heard yet so we’re not going to talk about it here. It’s spoiler alert territory.”  Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con Footage

Ever since the Marvel Studios panel happened at Comic-Con this past Saturday, fans have been clamoring to find out when the footage that played for those lucky enough to be in Hall would be online. People who waited in the line the previous night and into the morning were treated to the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, a hilarious mockumentary and behind the scenes sizzle reel from Thor: Ragnarok, a new Doctor Strange trailer (which you can actually watch), and an entire scene and teaser trailer from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

So when can you see this footage? The short answer is that it won’t be online anytime soon, and some of it may never be online in the form that it was shown in Hall H. But director James Gunn wants to make sure you know why the footage is being held back, and he explained as much in a video on Facebook, where he also put up a long post explaining all of the secrets revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con footage and panel. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
