Disney's 'Star Wars Rebels' won't formally debut its "Spark of the Rebellion" until tomorrow night on the Disney Channel (or right now, with a TV provider), but the entertainment conglomerate is unsurprisingly remaining invested in its new animated frontier. 'Star Wars Rebels' season 2 has officially been confirmed renewed for 2015, no doubt working toward its ties with the inevitable 'Star Wars 7.'
We still know next-to-nothing about 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but with a production this massive and anticipated, the rumor mill never stops churning. The next batch of information about J.J. Abrams' top secret sequel concerns the identity of certain characters, information about a few key locations, and the possible disfigurement of everyone's favorite Wookiee. Although everything written below is unconfirmed until we see the movie with our own eyes, consider this your spoiler warning. Read on with caution!
The greatest movie trailer of all time is the first trailer for ‘Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.’ This is not up for debate. This is not a subjective opinion. It just is. The trailer for ‘The Phantom Menace’ is so good that I firmly believe its goodwill bled over to the actual movie, inflating some early opinions of a movie that we all, now, realize isn’t very good. (I readily admit that I loved ‘The Phantom Menace’ the first time I saw it.) Here’s a fun thing to try: Forget everything you know about ‘The Phantom Menace’ and just pretend this is a brand new trailer for a ‘Star Wars’ movie.
Disney's forthcoming animated 'Star Wars Rebels' will see a "Spark of the Rebellion" officially premiering this Friday on the Disney Channel (or right now, online!), but it may be a few weeks yet before the action really takes off on its proper Disney XD home. To wit, catch a brand-new clip beyond the premiere as Kanan takes on the villainous Inquisitor!
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (AKA, a few years ago), David Fincher was courted to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' We know how that turned out: J.J. Abrams ultimately landed the job and Fincher went on to direct an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 'Gone Girl.' However, in the world of trivia, this has got to be one of the most interesting near-misses in blockbuster history.
ScreenCrush’s WookieLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'!

Lucasfilm just seems like a dream place to work. Not only is it the home to the 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones' franchises, but their employees get to partake in a number of geek-centric activities, from following around a real-life R2-D2 throughout their offices to competing for some stellar prizes in the recent Lucasfilm Sidewalk Festival. The latter took place last weekend, and the results of such creative talent working on 'Star Wars'-themed chalk art are astounding.
Comic book creator Mark Millar, the guy behind 'Kick-Ass,' created a new series, a sci-fi space hero series called 'Starlight,' awhile back. The first issue launched on March 5 of this year, and 20th Century Fox quickly scooped up the film rights and set the movie adaptation into development. That should tell you something about how excited the studio is over this project, and, recently, they hired the man who's currently writing one of the highly anticipated 'Star Wars' spinoff movies to pen the 'Starlight' script.
