Word broke over the weekend that Star Wars Rebels might deepen its connection with Rogue One by the animated return of Saw Gerrera, himself originally a creation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now, not only is Rebels confirming Saw’s return in 2017, it seems Forest Whitaker himself will reprise the role! Get a first look in a new clip.

Star Wars fans taking in Rogue One this weekend may have noticed some surprising connections to the animated iterations of a galaxy far, far away, including multiple Rebels easter eggs and a notable Clone Wars connection. That connection may get much more overt, as new promo art reportedly places Saw Gerrera in line for a Star Wars Rebels appearance this season.
DuckTales fans probably think about that iconic theme more-so than anyone notable names among the original cast, but the 2017 Disney XD reboot has you covered either way. Not only is David Tennant our new Scrooge McDuck, but so too do SNL and NBC stars debut in a new video singing that famous theme!
If you thought Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot was steeped in nostalgia before, wait until you hear that familiar theme music once again. The new adventures of Huey, Dewey and Louie have officially claimed a summer 2017 premiere, outlined in a gold-diving teaser.
It still remains to be seen if Disney and Marvel’s Big Hero 6 will ever get a second life in theaters, but the upcoming 2017 animated continuation is no slouch when it comes to casting. Not only will stars like Maya Rudolph and Scott Adsit return, so too will Sherlock and The Walking Dead stars join the mix.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. acknowledged a bitter truth with Coulson’s recent reference that so many great Agent Carter stories would go unrecorded, but Hayley Atwell seems to have taken that challenge literally. Peggy may not return to live-action just yet, but S.H.I.E.L.D.’s founder will return to voiceover in a new animated Avengers: Secret Wars role.
Marvel’s animated offerings have made no secret of following the films, between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avenger subsets like Ultron Revolution, and now Spider-Man is going back to basics. Not only will the current Ultimate Spider-Man come to a close in January, Disney XD will launch Marvel’s Spider-Man in 2017.
Star Wars Rebels is getting closer and closer to the Original Trilogy, and with it, another familiar face has come out of hyperspace. Meet a young Wedge Antilles in the latest Season 3 clip for this weekend’s debut!
We don’t yet know if future Star Wars movies will deepen our understanding of the Force any, but Star Wars Rebels Season 3 definitely aims to make things … well, bigger. A new Season 3 clip introduces the mysteriously neutral Force entity “The Bendu,” voiced by none other than Doctor Who star Tom Baker.
The closer we get to Star Wars Rebels Season 3's September premiere, the more all sides of the franchise start to converge. It’s Prequel Trilogy meets Original Trilogy meets Expanded Universe, as the latest Rebels Season 3 trailer brings Y-Wings, Destroyers and Thrawn, oh my!
