Along with a new trilogy and TV show, Lucasfilm’s purchase by Disney has moved Star Wars into the new millennium. “Star Wars” joined Twitter, Instagram and now has joined Tumblr. Thats the link right there for anyone who wants to follow. And to celebrate, they debuted a brand new piece of concept art from Star Wars Rebels revealing a whole new location in the Star Wars Universe.
Here’s the description: “The shadow of the Empire is cast on a major city on Lothal in this previously unseen concept art by Andre Kirk from the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels.”
We have to wait until December 2015 for Star Wars Episode VII but Disney fans can now make plans to head to Walt Disney World’s Star Wars Weekends in 2014. They’ve announced the dates as follows:

As Dave Filoni continues work on Star Wars Rebels, he’s also talking about Star Wars: The Clone Wars, whose final season including bonus episodes, is now on DVD. Head over to StarWars.com for the full interview, but here’s one cool quote:
The stories coming out definitely will cause a lot of debate and discussion among fans, which is what good Star Wars stories always do, and I look forward to talking about the stories with them when the time is right.
