That clip above is the great sizzle reel for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that just debuted at Star Wars Celebration. But if you were watching the live-feed from the convention, you know that right before the panel wrapped up, Kathleen Kennedy introduced a brand-new Rogue One trailer, that wasn’t streamed live on YouTube. If you weren’t in the room, you were out of luck.

It wasn’t too long ago that Star Wars Rebels fans eagerly theorized the arrival of Clone Wars vet Ahsoka Tano in Season 1, while the Season 2 finale left it rather vague that she survived her showdown with Darth Vader. Dave Filoni downplayed the notion thereafter, but may since have found a way to return Snips for a role in Star Wars Rebels Season 3.
It’s a great new look for a classic old location.
One of the biggest panels at this year’s Star Wars Celebration kicks off at 11AM today: the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel. Plenty of special guests are expected included director Gareth Edwards and plenty of members of the film’s cast. You can watch the panel streaming live above, and we’ll be updating this post with news and notes as they come in! The film’s plot synopsis:
Anyone who watched the the second season of Star Wars Rebels knew changes were in store for Season 3, and ahead of Star Wars Celebration, already we have our first look. An old friend returns (and can’t help notice Ezra’s major makeover) in the first official clip from the new season!
Sorry Comic-Con, but it’s all about Star Wars Celebration this year. The biggest event in the galaxy far, far away is only days away and ScreenCrush will be there to bring you all the latest news and updates from the three-day event.
As a whole, the Star Wars prequel characters were not a particularly well-liked group. You had Anakin Skywalker, the mopey, whiny young Jedi who hated sand. There was Queen Amidala, the blank royal who endured Anakin’s moping and whining and hatred of sand. And there was Jar Jar Binks who talked like a moron and later basically helped the Palpatine seize control of the galaxy. Not exactly candidates for the Mount Rushmore of Star Wars heroes.
Iain McCaig, concept artist for The Force Awakens, has praised the script for the new Han Solo prequel, saying that it is “by far the best Star Wars script.”
Star Wars Celebration is heading to Europe this year, but if you’re a particularly huge fan of the franchise with enough money to spare for a geeky vacation, then it might just be worth the trek to London next month. The latest addition to the festival lineup is a special “Future Filmmakers” panel featuring Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Episode VIII director Rian Johnson and more — and yes, there will be some surprises.
The release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens last Christmas was one of the most anticipated events of the season, and naturally everyone had an opinion. From Twitter misanthropes to awestruck fan site die-hards, all four corners of the internet were buzzing with approval or disappointment.
