With all the exciting happenings regarding Episode VII, it's easy to lose track of the other cool Star Wars news, well, easy for some, but not us bounty hunters here at Episode 7 News. With that, make the jump to read about some Rebels info . . .
JediNews has posted a little article regarding a certain "Rebel Journal" by Ezra Bridger that one of their friends has spied at the BookCon, which took place at the Javits Center in NYC on May 31st. It looks like the book is geared towards kids, but don't forget that it is still CANON.
Their spy, not a Bothan but a Miss Johnamarie Marcias, posted a bunch of pictures from the book, which are posted at MakingStarWars. Browse through the pictures and see if anything captures your attention. One thing kind of caught mine in this picture:
If you're paying close attention you will see that Ezra has labeled his days the same as we do. So apparently Lothal, his home planet, has the same seven-day setup as Earth -- IE Weeks with their days labeled Monday through Sunday. Just a small trivial tid-bit, but thus far in the Star Wars universe we've never really had any inkling of what their labeling system is. There's been no mention of months or years or days or weeks. In fact the only mention of a specific day has been Boonta Eve, as in the Boonta Eve pod race. Of course, everything is relative in space-faring epics like Star Wars so most likely this labeling concept is different from system to system. For instance Tatooine might take more days to complete a week and so on and so forth.
Now that the universe shaking news is out of the way, the same JediNews article goes on to say that Rebels is ready to premiere this October:
There isn't a specific date for the show yet, but the advertisement is for the premiere of the SERIES. The special feature length debut is to premiere on the regular Disney Channel, according to the Disney Wiki, this summer.
Tangentially to the premiere of Rebels, Disney is planning a Star Wars summer as the popular cartoon "Phineas and Ferb" mashes-up with A New Hope. In the same spirit as "Family Guy," Phineas and Ferb find themselves in the galaxy far, far away as adapted versions of our favorite heroes and villains in "Star Wars: Episode IVa: May the Ferb Be with You."
And, lastly, we'd like to mention that our international friends in the Philippines will be able to get in on all the Star Wars fun as Disney launches their XD channel there this June.
That's your Rebels Roundup for now! Stay tuned for further developments.
Just for the record, I can't wait to see Sabine in action -- this girl looks like she will kick alot of butt!
Who are you excited to see?!
