The Elven Padawan – #9 – Destiny, Rebels, HerUniverse, &… a LOTR TV show??!!

Shay goes solo! All by herself, she rambles about: recent episodes of Forces of Destiny, why you should be watching them, and how they tie into the bigger story (#HeraLives!!); Star Wars Rebels and where it’s headed as the show comes to a close; recent releases from HerUniverse and Shay’s tastes in fandom fashion; and the just-dropped reports on the possibility of Amazon making a Lord of the Rings series. She also reads some thoughts from the audience concerning these topics, and takes a few minutes to ramble about Vice Admiral Holdo, Rose, and other characters entering the Star Wars universe.

The Elven Padawan – #6 – Battlefront II, Forces of Destiny, and REBELS!!

Shay has a guest another this week! This time she is joined by Johnamarie Macias of The Wookiee Gunner, who helps her cover more news from Battlefront II, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, Star Wars Forces of Destiny, and of course, Star Wars Rebels!! They also discuss underrated female characters from Star Wars (Satine x Padme for BROTP!), badgirls in the spotlight (who says villains aren’t also heroes?), the possibility of Force Sensitivity in the Erso family, and have a bit of fangirl time devoted to Rebels (the metaphors of Kanan’s mask and Sabine’s hair). Shay also has a very sad Kanera thing that everyone needs to hear.
Stay tuned after the show for a special question Shay has for all her listeners!

New Forces of Destiny trailer!! + airing schedule

 The trailer for the second set of Forces of Destiny episodes is out!!

Forces of Destiny, a new branch of the Star Wars universe from Lucasfilm featuring 2D animated shorts, has just had a new trailer for its second set of episodes released!

This new trailer showcases the return of some of our favorite heroes who were already featured in first season of the the series (like Sabine Wren, Rey, Padmé Amidala, Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker, and Princess Leia Organa), as well as some new faces to the platform, though not to fans: Hera Syndulla, Ketsu Onyo, Han Solo, and a certain “big deal” called Finn, as well as the not-so-pleasant visage of Nima Outpost’s famed junk dealer, Unkar Plutt.

I have to admit, there’s one point in this trailer that caused me to immediately start up the fangirl tradition of “squee-ing” the moment my brain registered what I was seeing. It’s something many fans have speculated about for quite a while now, and seeing it become a reality is amazing. I’m pretty sure many of you know right off what I’m speaking of. 😉

More info on the air times and details on the actors involved in the series were announced on the Star Wars offical website.

The half-hour specials will air on Sunday, October 1 and Sunday, October 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel and the Disney Channel App, and feature a total of eight never-before-seen installments. Many of the original talents behind the characters have reprised their roles, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Felicity Jones, Tiya Sircar, Ashley Eckstein, Vanessa Marshall, Catherine Taber, and Matt Lanter, among others. Following the specials, these new shorts will also launch on Disney YouTube.

Lucasfilm publicist Tracy Cannobbio hopped on Twitter to clarify some things about how this new set of episodes will be released: first through two, half-hour specials on Dinsey XD, then later through individual releases on YouTube (which was the manner in which the first set was released). Here are some of her tweets that will hopefully help to make sense of the slightly complicated release schedule:
