Some of the biggest news coming out of Celebration Europe concerned Rebels. Dave Filoni, Tiya Sicar, and Sam Witwer took the stage at Celebration to discuss many of the developments for the upcoming season of the Disney XD show. Sabine, Tiya Sicar’s character, is armed with many new gadgets. Chief among them is a jetpack. Darth Maul, voiced by Sam Witwer, continues to pursue Ezra Bridger as he searches for direction in the galaxy. Many other developments were revealed, but perhaps the biggest announcement was saved for the season three trailer. Grand Admiral Thrawn is coming to Rebels. Everyone is excited. Well, almost everyone. I’m ambivalent. Let me explain why.

It has been one week, but the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel is now available to watch online (minus a certain spoiler). Gwendoline Christie handled her hosting duties with charm and humor, and the cast of Rogue One seemed to enjoy their first big moment in the spotlight — especially Ben Mendelsohn! If you haven’t seen the panel yet, you’re in for a treat. Enjoy!
Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, held court at Celebration Europe this past weekend, accompanied by her faithful and ever-present companion, Gary.
