Earlier today, Star Wars Rebels gave us a closer look at Season 2 with a clip of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s villainous “Seventh Sister,” but the Disney XD drama had so much more in store for New York Comic-Con 2015. A brand new trailer sees Ahsoka taking on the Inquisitors, with some surprises in store for the Ghost crew in Season 2.
Last week, we learned the surprising news that Buffy vet Sarah Michelle Gellar would ignite Star Wars Rebels Season 2 as a new inquisitor, rather than a young Princess Leia. Still, the erstwhile vampire slayer is all menace in the latest clip from Season 2, as Ezra attempts to hold his own in an interrogation.
Yes, we’ve known for a while that Luke, Leia and Han (and Chewie, and R2, and C-3PO) figure into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and that it’s very likely that one of the new cast members is a part of the Skywalker family. But it’s been unclear if the rest of the trilogy will continue the Skywalker story or pass the legacy on to another heroic character. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, we can expect all three of the new films to be Skywalker-centric.
Star Wars fans went wild for the news that Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar would join her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. for the second season of Star Wars Rebels, speculation abundant she might voice a young Princess Leia. Gellar had a bit of fun with the rumor as well, but reveals a far more sinister role for the second Rebels ride.
ScreenCrush’s WookieeLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything ‘Star Wars’! From The Force Awakens, 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, John Boyega talks about getting cast in The Force Awakens, Gwendoline Christie describes the importance of Captain Phasma, and the name of Max von Sydow’s character has been revealed.
Created exclusively for Facebook, this first person POV video places you on the back of a speeder as it whips through sand and debris, taking you over dunes and past crashed Star Destroyers. You can control the camera yourself by dragging the screen with a click of your mouse. You cannot change the course of your vehicle, but you can look in 360 degrees as you movie. It’s nifty stuff. See how it works above and try it for yourself below.
Most Star Wars references in other movies and TV shows are pretty obvious and therefore pretty boring. The staff here at ScreenCrush prefer the ones that fall under the umbrella of Easter eggs; hidden, subliminal, or extremely subtle hat-tips to the franchise, often as background gags or co-opted lines of dialogue. As we gear up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (now less than three months away!), it seemed like the perfect time to collect 25 of the most clever Star Wars Easter eggs from other movies (and TV shows!) and put them together into one gallery, which you’ll find above.
Being a Star Wars fan in 2015 requires you to sort through various piles of rumors and spoilers with the eye of a trained professional. Like an art expert examining a painting to see if it’s a forgery, you’ve got to develop a sixth sense for when things seem too good or too terrible to be true. You have to fine tune your B.S. radar. So please note that our B.S. radar is going totally nuts when we share the rumor that Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker will supposedly play a role in Star Wars: Episode 8.

Fans of Star Wars have long held something of a grudge against director George Lucas for altering the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy with additional CGI for the DVD and Blu-ray releases, making the unaltered versions unavailable to own. But that may be about to change, as director John Landis says that Lucas is preparing to release the unaltered versions sometime soon.
