The Mandalorian first order

We’re a little more than two months away from the release of The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars TV series, and since this is going to be a big deal for the nascent Disney+ streaming service, we expect the promotional cycle to ramp up considerably over the new several weeks.

It’s already begun: the first trailer debuted at D23 not long ago, and now showrunner Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni have given a new interview in which they revealed that the series will explore how The First Order gained power in the galaxy in the wake of the fall of the Empire.

Creator/executive producer Dave Filoni joined Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray, and Tiya Sircar to discuss Star Wars Rebels during Star Wars Celebration. Naturally, major spoilers were discussed.

When Star Wars Rebels ended in March 2018, Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn vanished without a trace.  While fans have speculated as to what might have happened, Filoni was tight-lipped during Saturday afternoon’s panel.  While there was less dancing around other elements of the conclusion, what happened to Ezra is unlikely to be answered anytime soon, nor did we get any major announcement of a new animated series that picks up where Star Wars Rebels left off.

Filoni did however announce that The Art of Star Wars Rebels would be available this October. Here’s what else we learned.

Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 7 Trailer

Fans attending Star Wars Celebration got a sneak peak of the new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars with showrunner Dave Filoni and the cast on hand to share details.

While the announcement of the new season took place at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the fans in attendance at Star Wars Celebration were the first to see clips and a trailer of the new season. In addition to the introduction, the trailer especially had the audience standing on their feet. It was so popular that it was shown twice on screen.  It’s very electrifying, to say the least.

Initially, Dave Filoni was joined by cast members Ashley Eckstein, Dee Bradley Baker, and Sam Witwer to discuss the new season. Later on, other cast members came out on the stage, including Matt Lanter, Catherine Taber, Tom Kane, Matthew Wood, and James Arnold Taylor.

Jon Favreau is becoming known as a director who loves testing the boundaries of cutting-edge technology and using that to further the limits of filmmaking. But sometimes, even he loves to go old-school. The writer, creator, and showrunner of The Mandalorian revealed that the effects used to shoot the ship of the titular bounty hunter, called the Razorcrest, will be entirely practical.

Inspired by the use of models to shoot the ships of the original Star Wars trilogy, Favreau and fellow executive producer Dave Filoni (Clone Wars) elaborated at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on how they teamed up with Industrial Light & Magic to pay homage to the original Star Wars movies by shooting with old-fashioned models and rigs.

Star Wars Resistance Showrunner

Star Wars Resistance is coming this fall to Disney XD. However, we still don’t know a whole lot about the series. So far we’ve only gotten a brief synopsis of the story and a small amount of artwork from the anime-inspired series. If you’re hoping to get answers from series creator Dave Filoni, he’s not ready to spill the beans yet…and he might not always be the best person to get that information from anyway.

Dave Filoni has revealed that he won’t be quite as involved with Star Wars Resistance as he was on the previous animated series Star Wars Rebels. Of course, that makes perfect sense since now that we know The Clone Wars will be making a comeback with new episodes, and that will keep him from being the Star Wars Resistance showrunner. Find out what Filoni had to say below. Read More »
