Hello! Welcome to Rebels Reactions where Coffee With Kenobi takes an in-depth look at the hit TV series Star Wars Rebels! In this special roundtable event, host Aaron Harris is joined by CWK bloggers Jay Krebs, Mike McDonald, Becca Benjamin, and Craig Dickinson for analysis of all the Rebels news coming out of Celebration Europe! From new looks for our heroes to the announcement of Grand Admiral Thrawn, this is a discussion you don’t want to miss!
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. Hosted by Warwick Davis, this is one panel I missed on the live stream (overslept!), so I’m really looking forward to watching it now. Also included is an interview with The Star Wars Show. Find both videos below:
Two more panels from celebration Europe have been released online. First, “Anthony Daniels: Without Protocol” was a hoot and, if you missed it, don’t pass it up this time around. Second is the EA Star Wars Panel, for all the gamers out there. You can watch both panels in their entirety below:
The Star Wars Show conducted many interviews during Celebration Europe, and it looks as though the final group has finally hit the internet. Whether at Celebration in person, or keeping up with the live stream at home, it’s just not always possible to see everything. In case you missed these features, here’s your chance to catch up.
Who’s your favorite Star Wars bounty hunter? Most of you would probably say Boba Fett. The mysterious man in the Mandalorian armor has been at the forefront of fan consciousness since the earliest days of the saga, and he has been portrayed onscreen by several different actors over the years. Celebration Europe brought together two of those actors, Jeremy Bulloch and Danial Logan, for the “Keeping Up With the Fetts” panel, hosted by David Collins. Check it out below:
Sure, Celebration Europe has come to an end, but videos of the panels and interview highlights are still trickling onto the internet. One of the most exciting panels was for Star Wars Rebels. Some incredible announcements came out of that one. Thrawn, anyone? If you missed it on the live stream, or would like to relive the thrills, you can watch it now in the video below:
STAR WARS CELEBRATION EUROPE: DAY THREE — A Guest Blog by Walt Fishon
The things one hears standing in a queue at Star Wars Celebration at 4:30 a.m…
“We’ll definitely get a teaser like they first had for The Force Awakens. You know, flashes of images that don’t give away the story”
“They’re going to announce the title of Episode VIII.”
“Daisy (Ridley) will be here since she lives in London.”
“Everyone on the t-shirt from Rogue One showed up, so everyone on the shirt from The Force Awakens should be here, too.”
