SuperHeroHype

Apr 30, 2015

Ezra, Kanan and the rest of the crew of the Ghost are headed back to the small screen in less than two months. Lucas film has just announced that “Star Wars Rebels” will air its Season Two premiere at 9:00pm ET/PT on Saturday, June 20! Be prepared for a full hour of “Rebels” with the extended Season Two premiere, “The Siege of Lothal” (which was screened for an audience of lucky fans at the recent Star Wars Celebration).

Executive produced by Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), “Rebels” features the voice talents of Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Steve Blum (Zeb), and Taylor Gray (Ezra).

Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary “Star Wars” saga, “Star Wars Rebels” unfolds between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV and tells the story of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost who together face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries and embark on thrilling adventures. In its second season, “Star Wars Rebels” will feature recurring appearances by fan-favorite characters including Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano with James Earl Jones reprising his iconic role from the films and Ashlecky Eckstein returning to voice the “Clone Wars” character. Dee Bradley Baker will also return this season as Captain Rex (as well as Gregor and Wolffe).

Darth Vader is a One-Man Fleet in a New Star Wars Rebels Clip!

SuperHeroHype

Jun 17, 2015

A new clip from this Saturday’s hour-long season two premiere of “Star Wars Rebels” has arrived and it features the return of one of cinema’s most iconic villains! James Earl Jones will be reprising his role in the episode, but there is, sadly, no Darth Vader dialogue in the clip. You can, however, watch as the Dark Lord of the Sith shows off some fancy flying. He even tries spinning which, as we know from The Phantom Menace, is a good trick! Also just released is a new behind-the-scenes featurette that looks at what’s going on in season two of the officially-in-canon series. Check both videos out in the players below!

Season two of “Star Wars Rebels” premieres at 9:00pm ET/PT on Saturday, June 20 on Disney XD with a special episode, “The Siege of Lothal.”

Princess Leia Set to Appear on Star Wars Rebels

SuperHeroHype

Jan 11, 2016

TV Insider brings word that fan-favorite character Princess Leia Organa will be making an appearance in an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, showing us a side of the princess unseen before!

“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope,” executive producer Dave Filoni says. “One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”

Actress Carrie Fisher, who reprised the role for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will not provide the voice for the character. Instead, Julie Dolan, who voiced Leia in the video game Star Wars: Uprising, will voice the iconic character. Leia joins a number of other fan-favorite characters that have made an appearance on the series, including the likes of Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2, Yoda and Lando Calrissian.

The episode featuring Leia, “A Princess in Lothal,” is set to air on Wednesday, January 20 at 9 PM EST on Disney XD.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.

The season two voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Sarah Michelle Gellar as the Seventh Sister Inquisitor.

Pretty good likeness for a 'tooned up version. Voice work isn't bad, either.

Star Wars Rebels "A Princess On Lothal"
Spoiler: show
Pretty good. Although I have to say the unlikely contortions they were going through to keep Leia's cover wound up being ridiculous. At some point it became so obvious Leia was a Rebel that I seriously looked down on the Empire. The Rebellion would ONLY be able to do the things they did this episode if Leia were complicit. The Empire has never heard of Occam's Razor.

All that said, it was cool seeing Princess Leia again. ***1/2.

Plot hole:
Spoiler: show
Ezra was born on Empire Day and Luke and Leia shortly after that. Shouldn't that make Ezra OLDER than Leia? Why is she treating him like a kid?

Simple answer, she is royalty and somewhat of a leader for the rebellion already.

Ezra is common rabble and still "green".

Not the best answer, but it works.

Kind of how she treated Luke and Han when she first met them...

Oh my God! You guys are so right! I keep forgetting how outright horrible Han, Luke, and Leia treated each other in the original trilogy. Maybe because Lucas wasn't the greatest writer, and didn't know how to do subtler conflict, but realizing that now, that means her dismissiveness of Ezra actually fits. This episode is her being polite.

God, Leia was such a sh*t politician in A New Hope. The most surprising thing about Vader and Tarkin obliterating Alderean was how surprised she was they did it. She was practically begging them to. Never give a psychopath an excuse to demonstrate their psychopathy. Leia's planet might still exist if she wasn't so hellbent on throwing how much Tarkin and Vader sucked in their faces.

Yeah, they DO suck. But it takes a special kind of obnoxiousness to tell one of them that he smells bad in front of his officers like that. She's lucky Tarkin didn't kill HER for that.

Edit: For the record, I am NOT saying Alderean deserved to be destroyed, or trying to let Vader off the hook for it. All I'm saying is if you have a giant space station the size of a moon with it's death ray pointed at your home planet, some tact is called for, ESPECIALLY if you are already a politician, speaking for the planet in question. Wars have been started over less.

Star Wars Rebels "The Protector Of Concord Dawn"
Spoiler: show
Wow, what an interesting episode. I love the ideas the episode explored and thought it was REALLY cool that Kanan got his mission of an alliance through an unexpected means: a kidnapping. I never expected that, and never even considered that something like that could possibly work. But it makes sense. Usually bad guys on TV shows don't care about hostages from their side, but that can't be true of every bad guy in existence. It makes sense that this particular hostage would rather play ball than have the Empire dig in its claws deeper.

I really loved this episode. I cannot say enough good things about it. *****.
