It was revealed recently in the official description for the planet Crait from The Last Jedi that the planet has a past with the Rebel Alliance. We’ll get to see that past in “Storms of Crait,” a new one-shot from Marvel Comics hitting stores December 27, a couple weeks after the movie. Ben Acker and Ben Blacker are writing the story, with Mike Mayhew art (who drew a few great Legends comics, and has worked on the Obi-Wan issues of Star Wars for Marvel). In it, Luke and Leia head to Crait to scout it as a new Rebel base. Yes, yes, yes.

Disney Parks love celebrating holidays, and that extends to their other brands. This glow-in-the-dark-looking ectoplasmic-looking R2 unit is now for sale. We’re gonna go ahead and say it’s non-canon, though.

Paul Bettany is all done with his work on Han Solo, which means he can head back to the Avengers set now. That is, of course, if he’s even in Avengers 4. I mean, the Vision has a freaking Infinity Stone powering him; he can’t possibly survive against Thanos can he? Oops, sorry, scooted into another franchise there.

Speaking of Han Solo, Ron Howard sure seems to be teasing a run to the Kessel Spice Mines in this latest of twitter pictures from the set. Interestingly, this tease comes just a couple weeks after MakingStarWars gave us a rumor that the film would be traveling to both Kessel and Han Solo’s home planet of Corellia. With Kessel seemingly confirmed, it’s a safe bet their tipster was right about Corellia, too.

The Topps Star Wars Card Trader app has revealed a heretofore unseen Luke Skywalker costume. The shots of Luke so far have had him in the grey-cloaked outfit almost exclusively, so this could come from later in the film. MakingStarWars (those guys are busy!) points out this costume is extremely similar to Anakin’s Revenge of the Sith outfit, and to Rey’s Jedi training outfit.

Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Trailer

The first nine episodes of the fifteen-episode final season of Star Wars Rebels will air in just five weeks, StarWars.com revealed. There will be two episodes per day on Monday 10/16, 10/23, 10/30, and 11/6, with a single episode titled “Rebel Assault” airing on 11/13. Then there’ll be a holiday break, with a return in early 2018 for the final six episodes of the series ever.

The even weirder twist to this is the airtime – new episodes will air first at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT (I’ve never been happier to live in the Central time zone), then again at 3 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. Rebels Recon, the aftershow, will air after the 9 p.m. airing, so you may be staying up late two nights in a row for the full experience.
