Captain Phasma is “Back” in new TLJ spot!

As the hype leading up to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues, yet another TV spot for the film has been released, featuring our first new line from feared commander of the First Order ranks, Captain Phasma!

“So good to have you back”, indeed, Captain!

While this spot was mostly a remixed version of shots we’d seen before, we were treated to a new line from Captain Phasma, who didn’t get many moments to herself from the previous trailers. And of course, we can’t forget Chewie’s reaction to an overstimulated porg on board the Millenium Falcon!!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is rated PG-13 for “Sequences of Sci-Fi Action and Violence”, and arrives in theaters December 15, 2017.

We also recently got a recap of the entire show so far, featuring key points from season 1, 2, and 3, as well as shots teasing the upcoming season 4.

 

 

And finally, we’ve been given a special clip from the season 4 premier episode, “Heroes of Mandalor”, which will begin airing on Disney XD within 24 hours of this post.

The new clip features Sabine and her fellow Rebel friends, including Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger and Mandalorian Protector Fen Rau, arriving on the planet of Mandalore and being greeted by Bo-Katan Kryze. Bo has become a fan favorite for her appearences in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, and this will be her first appearance in Rebels, though her addition to this show has long been speculated on and expected by fans.

The Elven Padawan: From Erebor to Echo Base – #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 Star Wars Rebels season 4 teasers!

 We have a new preview for Star Wars: Rebels, featuring brand-new clips from the season opener, “Heroes of Mandalore”!!

Less than an hour ago on Disney XD’s official Twitter, this new preview for the 4th and final season of Star Wars: Rebels was dropped:

The new preview features shots from the war-ravened surface of Mandalore, including our first long, hard look at the devastation left by that now-infamous weapon, which we can assume is the same one built by Sabine Wren, all those years ago. It would seem that Grand Admiral Thrawn is more than happy to bring this weapon back to use, and once again stir up the fight, both inwards and outwards, of the girl who created it. No doubt about it, this season premier is going to be a wild ride, and for those of us who didn’t have the privilege of watching it at Celebration Orlando or Fan Expo Canada earlier this year, the days are drawer nearer when we’ll be finally be able to get all the details on the war about to break out on Mandalore.

Two other teasers for the 4th season of Rebels were also revealed recently, and though these don’t seem to include any new shots of distinct importance, they are interesting and are serving to get us all even more hyped before the show starts back on the 16th of this month.

A big thanks to Johnamarie Macias (@BlueJaigEyes) of The Wookiee Gunner for spreading those last two teasers around! 🙂

These teasers serve as a reminder of just how far the show has come since it’s beginning on Lothal, smoking out Imperials and stealing food for displaced civilians. Although we still all loved those days when things were simpler, and to be honest, I sometimes miss the happier-toned, family adventures of the Ghost crew. But Ezra is right when he reminds us, “This is how a rebellion starts.” Last season we saw the actual formation of the Rebel Alliance, and now we’re seeing that last bit of time that led up to events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and finally to the full-out Galactic Civil War showcased in the original trilogy of Star Wars films. And that’s the part I want people to understand. It’s not just some badly animated, kidsy-fied, Disney-channel Star Wars show. This is showing us history, pieces that may not be totally necessary to understanding the rest of the saga, but sure do explain a lot and make you realize just how much the whole story is tied together, just as Rogue One did. Not to mention how much has been drawn from the old Legends brand back into the New Canon storytelling. But I’m afraid too many people dismiss this great piece of storytelling because they don’t care for the animated, or, as I’m truly starting to think, because it’s become “cool” to hate on the show. And that’s a shame, because they’re missing out on some fantastic Star Wars.

Ok, sorry for the rant. I’m finished now. 🙂

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.

Read full article here.

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:
