Disney kept Star Wars Rebels out of Comic-Con 2015 and only had so much to offer at D23, but us New Yorkers are in for a treat come NYCC in October. Not only will New York Comic-Con screen the first two episodes of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, but so too have we intercepted the Empire’s panel plans.

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm and systematically eradicated most of the ‘Star Wars’ Expanded Universe, the most hardcore fans of the most popular genre franchise on the planet made their displeasure known, but to no avail.

More specifically, Disney didn’t buy ‘Star Wars’ so it could appease the niche group of fans who have kept up with the increasingly complicated Expanded Universe; it bought ‘Star Wars’ to please the much larger audience of everyone else.

This past weekend at New York Comic-Con lifted the veil on 'Star Wars' next TV iteration 'Star Wars Rebels' quite a bit, though Lucasfilm may be plotting even more phantom content than we might have realized. A new report suggests the company has begun plotting for two Darth Vader-themed TV specials potentially connected to the series, but what would they be about?
