It’s a pretty big week for Star Wars, and something tells me that there’s still some more news yet to come. As folks continue to discuss the forthcoming Han Solo movie and its production set to continue under filmmaker Ron Howard, some attention is turning to the upcoming Star Wars Forces of Destiny, which will debut in animated form next week. Additionally, Star Wars Rebels‘ third season will be hitting Blu-ray this fall, and there’s a new episode of The Star Wars Show that covers everything that I’ve just mentioned here… and then some. Ready to watch some videos? Here we go…
Star Wars Forces of Destiny, an original series of animated shorts which explore the untold stories that helped shape the destinies of Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Padmè Amidala, Ahsoka Tano and others, will make its debut beginning on July 3rd on YouTube.com/Disney.
Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Three
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the Rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the Rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. Ezra and Sabine must take on new roles and challenges as the Rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
Star Wars Rebels was created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is also executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.
