UPDATE: An earlier version of this post mistakenly referred to the season finale as “Twin Suns,” which was last week’s episode. The finale is titled “Zero Hour.”
The Star Wars canon will never be the same again after the Star Wars Rebels season 3 finale, titled “Zero Hour,” airs this Saturday.
The highly anticipated two-part finale sees a final showdown between Grand Admiral Thrawn and the Ghost crew, along with one unexpected cameo (although it all has to find a way to live up to last week’s Obi-Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul rematch). Before it all comes to a head this weekend, get a sneak peek at some brand-new images and a preview clip from Disney XD’s animated show.

We might not be the target audience for Disney’s new DuckTales revival, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have opinions about it. After all, we’re the ones who grew up watching the animated adventures of Huey, Louie, Dewey, and Scrooge McDuck on television. Not to mention, some of us have kids of our own that we plan to share the new DuckTales with.
Fortunately, the DuckTales revival actually seems to be shaping up quite promisingly. The art released so far indicates that Disney has maintained the same general feel of the classic DuckTales episodes, while also tweaking it just enough to make it look fresh and modern. Today’s new image offers our first look at the new version of Launchpad McQuack, who, yeah, still looks more or less like you remember him. And a brief new teaser calls back to that old DuckTales theme song we know so well. So, when exactly will we get to see this new DuckTales? Disney has new details on that, too. Click through for all things DuckTales. Read More »

Walt Disney Animation Studios has been absolutely killing it over the past few years, but so far they’ve resisted the temptation to follow up any of their big smash hits with big splashy sequels. Not even Big Hero 6 — which, as an adaptation of a Marvel comic book, seems tailor-made for a multi-film franchise — has given way to a Big Hero 7. But Disney has been very open to expanding these hot properties in other directions. Like TV, where we’ll soon see a Big Hero 6 series. Read More »

Back in the spring, we learned that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar would be bringing her voice talents to the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels. When she was cast in the series, however, her character was kept secret.
But now that the second season premiere is almost upon us (The Siege of Lothal aired in June, as a sort of in-between “movie”), Gellar has finally been allowed to reveal who she’ll be playing. Thanks to an Instagram post of the actress wearing some familiar hair buns, many speculated she would voice Princess Leia, but that couldn’t be more wrong. Get the details on the Star Wars Rebels Sarah Michelle Gellar character after the jump! Read More »
