Last Wednesday the official Star Wars site released the ROTJ theatrical trailer although the pattern so far suggested TESB related video. So will they start over again by releasing something about A New Hope or something different. Also hit the jump to check out some other stories from today...
Interview with Star Wars: Rebels executive producer Greg Weisman (via StarWars.com)
Star Wars Rebels leans towards Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in terms of tone, Weisman explains, and shows the early days of the Rebellion. When the series begins, the Rebellion is not yet organized, and the series will show how the Alliance forms over the course of seasons. "That is tremendously exciting," he says.
Weisman says he is a longtime geek, having read comics from a young age and getting his start as an editorial assistant at DC Comics. He worked his way up to associate editor and then transitioned into animation, eventually creating the Gargoyles cartoon for Walt Disney Television Animation, and recently worked on Young Justice.
Weisman saw Star Wars for the first time in 1977, when he was 13 years old, and loved it -- but The Empire Strikes Back stands as his favorite film the series. "Empire...blew my mind," he says, and also talks about his favorite Star Wars character and scene.
Despite all the hard work that goes into it, Weisman is very excited about Star Wars Rebels. "It's just really cool," he says.
And an interesting observation:

Also ClubJade found out some more bits from Weisman from the latest issue of Star Wars Insider:
We have two strong female leads in the show among our set of characters and we think they are going to be fan favorites very quickly. That’s always been a personal priority for me in all the work I’ve done, to have a strong and diverse cast of characters, both in terms of gender and race._____________________________________________

Michael B. Jordan briefly comments on his possible Star Wars involvement (via ComicBook):
“With the Star Wars and all these other franchises, Fantastic Four and stuff like that, it’s good to be in the mix of those conversations. You know, it wasn’t like that before, so it’s kind of cool to be in those conversations right now”.
As always on Wednesday StarWars.com has changed their Facebook cover image.
Here it comes. Obviously they are pretty random now with no specific meaning. Nevertheless the "Wednesday Tease" articles will continue. Can't wait for the Wednesday in two weeks time (December 18). :)
