Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy.

Star Wars Rebels

If you’re like me you were bummed to hear that “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” was being cancelled after a tremendous five season run. The animation, stories and acting were top notch and I really hoped that this new series Lucasfilm hinted at would be on par with the quality we, Wars fans, have grown accustomed to in terms of production value and storytelling. It would appear that our geeky prayers have been answered!

StarWars.com just released details on their new animated series “Star Wars Rebels.” Here’s the news from Lucasfilm themselves.

Production has begun on Star Wars Rebels, an exciting, all-new animated television series based on one of the greatest entertainment franchises of all time. Scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Leading the development of the series is a creative team of exceptional talent. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) is an executive producer on Star Wars Rebels and will write the premiere episode. He is joined by Dave Filoni as executive producer, who served as supervising director of the Emmy nominated Star Wars: The Clone Wars since 2008. Executive producer Greg Weisman brings with him a wealth of animation experience with credits such as Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “The entire team at Lucasfilm has provided extraordinary creativity and innovation for over three decades, and we’re thrilled to be bringing the expansive and imaginative world of Star Wars to Disney XD’s viewers.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to explore new corners of the Star Wars universe,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president, Lucasfilm. “I think Star Wars Rebels will capture the look, feel and fun that both kids and their parents love about Star Wars.”

The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Details about the show are a closely guarded secret at this point.

Star Wars Rebels will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Fans attending Star Wars Celebration Europe will be the first to get an exclusive look at the new series. Casting will be announced at a later date. More information about this developing project will be found on StarWars.com and on Facebook at facebook.com/starwarsrebels.

Exciting news to say the least! Here’s a video Star Wars author Pablo Hidalgo talking with executive producer Dave Filoni about Lucasfilm’s highly-anticipated new animated series!

 

I’m really excited to hear the details of this series from the man Dave Filoni himself. The artwork and creative team behind this show are amazing. It also sounds that the show will continue on with the animation style of Clone Wars improving on what they have been able to accomplish in recent seasons, making things more realistic and broader in scope.

What do you think about this new development? Leave your comments below and May the Force be with you!

ABOUT RIDLEY PEARSON:

Ridley Pearson is a New York Times best-selling author with nearly 30 adult suspense novels and over 15 children’s adventure novels published in 22 languages in 70 countries. He has had his novels adapted to both network television and the stage. He has also co-produced and written documentaries for television. Ridley has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Craig Ferguson, CNN, the BBC, NPR, and has been reviewed in major newspapers around the world.

Ridley began his career as a singer/songwriter for an acoustic rock band and spent nearly a decade on the road. He continued his music as a founding member of The Rockbottom Remainders, a ’60s rock ‘n roll band featuring bestselling authors, which recently played its last gig after 20 years.

Following attendance at Kansas University and Brown University, Ridley’s songwriting led to script writing, and script writing to novels. His first work, Never Look Back, was published in 1985. In 1990, Ridley was the first American to be awarded the Raymond Chandler Fulbright Fellowship in detective fiction at Oxford University. In 2008, he was a visiting professor in the College of International Language and Literature at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

Ridley has earned a reputation for writing fiction that “grips the imagination.” His crime novels emphasize dazzling investigative detail, and, all too often, imitate life. His previous novels have helped solve two real-life homicides and helped settle an environmental lawsuit.

Disney Theatrical created a stage play of his children’s novel Peter and the Starcatchers, co-written with Pulitzer Prizewinning humorist, Dave Barry, that opened in March 2011 and is now on Broadway. Raised in Riverside, Connecticut, Ridley, his wife, Marcelle, and their two daughters currently divide their time between the Midwest and the Northern Rockies.

ABOUT “KINGDOM KEEPERS VI: DARK PASSAGE”
The five Kingdom Keepers and their core friends have uncovered a startling truth: Maleficent and the Overtakers (Disney villains) are plotting a catastrophic event that could have repercussions far beyond the world of Disney.

Aboard the Disney Cruise Line’s inaugural passage through the new Panama Canal, the Keepers and their holograms uncover a puzzle hidden within the pages of a stolen journal. The point of that puzzle will reveal itself in the caves of Aruba, the zip lines of Costa Rica, and the jungles of Mexico. A destructive force, dormant for decades, is about to be unleashed. The five Kingdom Keepers are to be its first victims.

Purchase “Kingdom Keepers VI: Dark Passage” today!

The Avenger’s S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson played by Clark Gregg

ABC and Marvel just released some details regarding its “Avengers” spin-off television series that had the working title of “S.H.I.E.L.D.” – the missions of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. The new series will now go by the name of  “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Here is the latest synopsis of the pilot episode.

Joss Whedon (MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shows us not all heroes are super with MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. 

Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). 

Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world. 

The series is executive produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse, Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) is will be Marvel Entertainment’s first live-action TV series. The show pilot will also reunite Whedon with ‘Angel’ Actor J. August Richards in Mystery Role.

The show sounds a lot like another ABC Studios production “Criminal Minds” and “Mission: Impossible” meets a band of ninjas! What a great concept!

Be sure to catch  “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” this fall on ABC!

Here’s the latest news regarding guests and events slated for the HUGE Star Wars Celebration Europe II convention July 26-28 in Messe Essen, Germany.

Four Fetts at Celebration for the First Time in Europe!

Boba Fett is one of the most popular characters of the Star Wars saga, and fans will have the chance to meet four actors who brought the iconic bounty hunter to life. This unprecedented collection of on-screen bad boys will be a first for Celebration Europe.

Over the course of Celebration Europe weekend, you can meet these actors in the Celebration Autograph Hall, run by Official Pix, and expect to see them on the Celebration Stage, too!

The four Fetts attending are:

Jeremy Bulloch: Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi; Captain Colton in Revenge of the Sith.

Daniel Logan: Young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones, and the voice of the animated Boba in the three-part Season Two finale and in Season Four of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series.

Dickey Beer: Boba Fett stunt performer in Return of the Jedi.

John Morton: Boba Fett in Cloud City in a scene in The Empire Strikes Back.
Star Warriors Screening with Special Deleted Scenes
Back in 2006, George Lucas wanted to produce a Star Wars spectacular for the annual Tournament of Roses Parade in California, for New Year’s Day, 2007. Central to his plan was bringing costumed Star Wars fans — more than 200 Stormtroopers, Imperials, and Rebels — to march from countries all over the world. Lucas specified that he wanted these troopers in the parade both to make it spectacular, and to thank the fans for the great work they do for charity and community.

Star Warriors tells the story of these marching fans, focusing on their selection, training, and participation in the 2007 Rose Parade. Produced by Kevin Burns and Prometheus Entertainment for Lucasfilm, the movie is a tribute to the 501st and Rebel Legions, the global organizations of Star Warscostuming enthusiasts, their charity and volunteer work, and of course their participation in the parade.

Star Warriors has previously only been shown on the big screen at Star Wars Celebration Japan in 2008. This special screening of Star Warriorsat Celebration Europe will conclude with a selection of never-before-seen footage featuring the fans’ preparation for the parade, focusing on the costumed fan groups from Europe.

Meet Leland Chee, Keeper of the Lucasfilm Holocron

Since 2000, Lucasfilm has used the Holocron continuity database to internally track all the fictional elements of the Star Wars universe across all mediums, including the films, television, books, games, and online. Lucasfilm’s official “Keeper of the Holocron,” Leland Y. Chee, is slated to appear in a number of panels at Celebration Europe.

Chee, who was dubbed by Wired magazine as having the “Best Job Ever,” will share insights and detail about Star Wars as few can!

Visit www.starwarscelebration.eu today to buy tickets and for more information on Celebration Europe. Be sure to keep an eye on the Star WarsBlog for an inside look at the planning and development of this highly-anticipated event.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Cast

The cast of Star Wars: The Clone Wars

There has been a lot of internet buzz regarding the future of  “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated series since Cartoon Network aired the season finale last week. Rumors of the show’s cancellation ran wild while others speculated an announcement from Disney about the move to one of its channels. Today we know that Lucasfilm animation is “moving in another direction.” While not specific, it does sound as if there are no immediate plans to have season six on broadcast television.

We do know that various voice actors as we as supervising director Dave Filoni have gone on record working on season six and beyond. In the video clip below Filoni says, “Even though we are winding things down on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it’s not over yet. In fact the best is yet to come!” This is good news.

Now read the press release from Lucasfilm.

As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.
As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.

After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we’re continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we’ve decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.

We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV. Keep checking StarWars.com for new developments on these and future projects.

“Always in motion is the future.” – Yoda

An interesting choice of words in press release to say the least. I believe Disney and Lucasfilm wanted to address the fanbase before it explodes. I suspect that they are planning to launch a new series focusing on original trilogy characters and will find it’s way on Disney XD.  The Clone Wars will definitely not be returning to the Cartoon Network but it also doesn’t mention the fact that the series will appear on any Disney or ABC related network at this time. The key words are “bonus content” which leads me to believe that they are planning to release these episodes as webisodes or streaming content on StarWars.com. Does it mean that they won’t find their way on a ABC/Disney channel down the road? Perhaps. It would depend on how much content they have completed. There is always the possibility for downloadable content, made-for-tv movies, a boxed set of DVD/Blu-ray the possibilities are endless. Perhaps they will have a mini-series announcement during Star Wars Weekends 2013 in a few weeks. That is very exciting stuff indeed!

“Even though we are winding things down on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it’s not over yet. In fact the best is yet to come!” – Dave Filoni

That quote from Filoni made me the happiest. More Star Wars to come is a great thing. I also like the fact that they showed a clip of a future episode. We will all get to see this content and soon. I still contend that they will make an announcement during Star Wars Weekends in a few weeks. You can be sure that I will be there to report on all the happenings regarding The Clone Wars and Detours.

Let me know what you think about these turn of events.

Star Wars news seems to be breaking on a daily basis which is a great thing! Original trilogy actors have been doing a lot of press answering questions regarding their possible involvement in Star Wars Episode VII. Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams have mentioned wanting to return to a galaxy far, far away. Now we can add Carrie Fisher to the “Ep. 7” buzz.  Here’s an excerpt from a recent Palm Beach Illustrated interview with the galactic princess.

Q: “Disney is going to continue the ‘Star Wars’ saga, producing movies set to hit theaters starting in 2015. Can you confirm whether you’ll reprise the role of Princess Leia?”
A: “Yes.”
Q: “What do you think Princess Leia is like today?”
A: “Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks’ home [laughs]. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle.”

As soon as the story broke Fisher’s representative fired off saying “nothing has been confirmed” and she was just “joking.” Notice my use of quotations. I think Lucasfilm/Disney is doing a great thing by letting these things leak as it builds anticipation for a 2015 release. I suspect that we will be hearing from Billy Dee Williams and Mark Hamill over the next few months to stoke the flames.

This week marks the 12th birthday of the number one fan-run Disney station on the internet, Sorcerer Radio! To celebrate the staff will be expanding their programming having more listeners experience their hosted shows!

Sorcerer Radio was started as a way to bring a little bit of that Disney magic back home with you when you are needing a Disney fix.

Our goal has always been to provide a special place for Disney fans and families. A place where you can remember your trips through that nostalgic feeling you get when you hear the wonderful music that is played at the Disney parks.

And we have you, the fans of Sorcerer Radio, to thank for 12 years of magical music. From all of us here at Sorcerer Radio, Thank You for letting us provide your Disney fix for 12 years and here is to many many more!
