Star Wars will soon permeate every waking hour of our lives, and I am okay with that. Heralding this new age of awesome is Star Wars Rebels, coming Fall 2014 and brought to us from show runnner Dave Filoni of Star Wars: The Clone Wars fame. Rebels will be an animated serial that will explore the time period between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.
Tying you over until the show that will tie you over until the movies - let's face it, we all just want Episode VII: A New Dawn... and we want it now! We have an exclusive clip out of WonderCon 2014! Check it out!
I have to say that I never invested myself into The Clone Wars, quite unfairly as the prequels left a bad taste in my mouth. But if this is the quality of content Filoni creates I may need to renounce my previous dismissal of the show.
It looks like the show has a palpable vigor which I find very appealing, the stylistic visuals are fast-paced and energetic and the whole affair carries a very-tongue-in-cheek vibe. Also, that TIE fighter explosion looks straight out of the original trilogy! Solid animation work on the part of Lucasfilm; I can't wait for the show to premiere!
