Star Wars Rebels season 3

After nearly six months of waiting, we are now just two days away from the season 3 premiere of Star Wars Rebels. But if patience isn’t your strong suit (and who could blame you, given all the exciting stuff about to go down next season?), Disney XD has dropped a couple new clips for you to pore over while you wait. In one, Ezra (Taylor Gray) consults a Sith Holocron, while in another, Ezra and Hera (Vanessa Marshall) go undercover and find themselves face-to-face with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).

New ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Promo Is All About Thrawn

Star Wars Rebels Thrawn

There are plenty of reasons to get excited about the return of Star Wars Rebels later this month, but one of the biggest is Thrawn. Not only does the Imperial officer represent an exciting and intimidating new threat to our heroes, he’s someone fans have been waiting to see onscreen for a very long time. With that in mind, Disney XD has released a new Star Wars Rebels season 3 promo that is all about Thrawn, voiced here by Lars Mikkelsen (who just happens to be the brother of Mads Mikkelsen, star of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).

After Disney purchased Lucasfilm, it was announced that the Star Wars expanded universe would no longer be considered official canon. Relabeled “Legends,” these stories would continue to exist in print and other mediums for future generations to enjoy. It was later clarified that places, characters, elements and stories from Legends could be adapted for future Star Wars canon if creators chose to incorporate them in this new wholly connected Star Wars universe.

The Star Wars Rebels season 2 finale included the now infamous line “there’s always some truth in Legends,” a tease of things to come. We’ve seen this already in the Star Wars novels, and now the animated television series Star Wars Rebels is brining back a big character from the expanded universe. Find out who and how Grand Admiral Thrawn will fit into Star Wars Rebels season 3 after the jump.

Sherlock

Just over a week ago at Comic Con we got a peek at this middle of the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. We also learned a bit about how the season begins. But what we didn’t know, until now, was the name of any new actor who’ll be making trouble for Sherlock and Watson this time out.

Now we’ve got a name, for both the character and the actor. We’ll keep all the details after the break; read on for a tantalizing glimpse at the next season. Read More »

What Richard Did

If you’ve heard of What Richard Did, there’s a good chance it was in the context of a conversation about Transformers 4. A few months ago, Irish actor Jack Reynor was plucked from relative obscurity to become Michael Bay‘s new Shia LaBeouf, and What Richard Did was one of the few films on his resume. If Transformers 4 does well, this young star has the potential to become one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars overnight. But as he moves on to higher-profile roles, his sensitive turn in What Richard Did makes me hope he won’t leave indies behind completely.
