ScreenCrush’s WookieeLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'! From 'Episode 7,' to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Harrison Ford's injury steals the spotlight again, Domhnall Gleeson dodges questions about his beard, and the rumor mill starts cranking out information about the villains of 'Episode 7.'
Star Wars Rebels
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Star Wars Rebels,' the forthcoming animated TV series. Though, in spite of the many character reveals and teaser trailers, at least one aspect of the new Disney XD series has remained a mystery. The show hasn't officially confirmed the voice behind its Jedi-hunting baddie "The Inquisitor," but a new report suggests 'Harry Potter' villain Jason Isaacs might be our man.
Not only did Simon Kinberg write and produce the upcoming superhero spectacular, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and its sequel 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and 2015's 'Fantastic Four' reboot -- he's also the creator and executive producer of 'Star Wars Rebels,' a new animated series that takes place between the events of 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope.' (Kinberg is also involved in the development of the yet-to-be-announced 'Star Wars' live action movies.)
Kinberg is currently promoting the aforementioned 'Days of Future Past,' but the subject of 'Rebels' did come up (okay, yes, because I asked about it) and Kinberg explains what it's like to write for characters who appeared in the original trilogy (it's rumored Lando Calrissian plays at least a small role) and threading the needle between the people who love the Original Trilogy and the people who love the prequels.
This past Sunday saw 'Star Wars' animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' issuing its first full trailer before the fall debut, though any major surprises were absent. Now, early word suggests that a pivotal franchise character may yet have a role to play in the series, picking up after we last saw the character in 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars.'
May the 4th be with you! As promised, the full trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels' has arrived online today in honor of "Star Wars Day." The full 60-second trailer delightfully expands upon what we've seen already, with the crew of the "Ghost" eager to strike up a rebellion against the nefarious Empire.
Along with the mammoth 'Star Wars' casting announcements this week, Lucasfilm revealed that its May 4 celebration would also see the release of a new trailer for Disney XD's forthcoming 'Star Wars Rebels.' Our first look at the new Sunday trailer has arrived, and the crew of the rebellious "Ghost" is hungry to take a bite out of the Imperial forces!
Sure, there may have been some bigger 'Star Wars' news today, but those wondering when the trilogy-bridging 'Star Wars Rebels' might finally debut a proper trailer are in luck. The latest look at Disney XD's new animated take on the 'Star Wars' universe will arrive on "Star Wars Day," of course, though a new poster and photos are available right now!
'Star Wars: Episode 7' remains hidden and locked away in J.J. Abrams' mystery box, but the upcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' has been steadily releasing character information and trailers over the past few months. The latest footage comes straight from WonderCon, where a clip from the series was unveiled.
Why the ladies were saved for last we'll never know, but 'Star Wars Rebels' has finally rounded out the cast of its "Ghost" crew, following yesterday's reveal of spunky Mandalorian explosives expert Sabine. Meet Twi'lek team pilot Hera, the owner of the Ghost that houses the titular 'Star Wars Rebels' and the heart and soul of the team!
For weeks now we've been meeting the cast of 'Star Wars Rebels,' particularly after the the LEGO sets gave away the basic appearances of our remaining "Ghost" crew, yet here's one we haven't yet seen. Meet Sabine, a Mandalorian explosives expert with a penchant for graffiti and more style than Boba Fett ever dreamed of!
