Kanan discovers that things are not always black and white. It’s time to hear from the middle, the Grey. This excites me for more than we will be delving into the philosophy of the many facets of the Force, we will also get to hear from the fourth Doctor… MY Doctor. Tom Baker crosses the genre streams and becomes, what could possibly be, an integral part of Luke Skywalker’s inevitable journey.
So Season Three of Star Wars Rebels is coming. Three of the most stand out things that I am most excited for are A blind Jedi Master Kannan, The Bendu, and Grand Admiral Thrawn! Those are my top three but there are so many more things that have my attention in the latest trailer. This is a show that was targeted at children and has its childish moments, I still can appreciate them because they are a respite from the dramatic tension that is almost always present in Star Wars. It seems to have had quite a growth spurt and good on Disney for continuing the integrity of the Star Wars brand. I am pretty sure that this will be the final season for this show but that is OK. There are always more tales to tell and you never know when somebody you know, and love, will pop into those new stories.
I know I shared this via social media earlier today but holy Midi-chlorians, this is both awesome and epic. It almost seems as they are going more heavily into the direction of fantasy, even to the point of dancing on the edge of new “Canon” and a “Legends” style story. This is going so much more darker and intense that I can’t see the reasons for keeping it on DisneyXD. Anyhow, this second half of the second season will be a mind-blowing ride, and we all have tickets for it 🙂
I am glad to be getting back to some fun subjects!
Until next time… Live Long, Prosper and May the Force be with You 🖖
Groot news, everybody! Disney 😄 on Monday announced that its animated adaptation of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will officially debut Saturday, Sept. 26 at 9:30/8:30c — but you don’t have to wait that long for your first look.

In addition to a sneak peek of the series premiere airing Saturday, Sept. 5 at 9 pm, the network is also rolling out 10 two-minute shorts which will explore each of the Guardians backstories. Here’s a full schedule of origin short premieres:
* Aug. 1: Star Lord, Part 1 (8:58 pm) and Part 2 (10:28 pm)
* Aug. 8: Groot, Part 1 (8:58 pm) and Part 2 (9:58 pm)

How AWESOME does this show look? You don’t have to answer that question because I already know. There are classic elements, prequel elements, and most importantly Ralph McQuarrie elements to the show. Without Ralph Angus McQuarrie, I dare say, the Star Wars we all know and love could have never existed. It could just be a footnote or some cult favorite like THX1138. They can only do so much with the story for the show without infringing on canon but they seem to be handling it in stellar fashion. Star Wars: Rebels comes to Disney 😄 this October. If you are like me, without cable or satellite, you’ll find more creative methods of obtaining access to this show.
So the Clone Wars will wrap up loose ends in this last season, supposedly, on Netflix. Does this mean I am going to fire my old NF account back up just to bask in all of the Clone Wars Nerdly Glory? Nope. I really want to see it but not bad enough to rejoin a service that has been a slow-to-grow let down. I’ll find other avenues to watch the show. Perhaps if they offered more than just that then I may be enticed to return but until then I just can’t go back.
I really am surprised and a bit disappointed that Disney 😄 didn’t step up and offer up 30 minutes a week to air the program.
It may have come as a shock to you but I am a HUGE Star Wars Fan. The breaking new this morning about the upcoming show based on the late, and great, Ralph McQaurrie’s concept art for the first Star Wars Trilogy. The Show will be headed by Dave Filoni (Clone Wars) and feature collaborative talents of Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman (Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles).
“The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen.Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.”
I shall be looking forward to watching this and in learning any details I can find about it. Star Wars: Rebels will air in the Autumn of 2014 on Disney XD.
