If Kanan is the “Han Solo” and Ezra is the “Luke,” Zeb is the Chewbacca of Star Wars Rebels.

The team at Lucasfilm has been slowly revealing new characters from the upcoming Disney XD animated series, which will be the first product of the new Disney Star Wars universe. Next up is Zeb, a muscle-bound, but smart and articulate alien ally of the Rebellion who flies in the Ghost with the rest of the crew. Below, check out a video introduction to our first alien – and a new one at that – of the new Star Wars universe. Read More »

Kanan Star Wars Rebels 2

With four official characters introduced, the image of Star Wars Rebels is beginning to take shape. The Lucasfilm/Disney animated series will tell Star Wars fans how the rebellion against the Galactic Empire grew from its earliest stages to the strong organization that blew up two Death Stars. In that time between Episodes III and IV, we know there will be an evil Sith named The Inquisitor, a droid named Chopper, a hidden Jedi named Kanan and a poor, street smart kid named Ezra, who Kanan takes under his wing. These characters will be at the center of the show when it premieres this summer on Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD in the Fall.

Today two 30 second promos have come online. These show us the first complete footage we’ve seen from the series. Check them out below. Read More »

Millennium Falcon

The Lucasfilm website recently relaunched with a slick new design showing off their decades of iconic work. Among the properties on the website is, of course, Star Wars Episode VII and in the “Production” section of the site, there’s an image of a production meeting. Attendees of this meeting include writer/director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, production designer Rick Carter, SVP of technology Kim Libreri, SVP of Physical Production Jason McGatlin and Senior Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll. So this is pretty big time.

Most interestingly, though, are the images on the back wall. They clearly depict the Millennium Falcon as well as vast landscape and even Obi-Wan Kenobi. Are these from Star Wars Episode VII? Explore the image below. Read More »
