The Empire. The Rebellion. The Beginning. STAR WARS REBELS, Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated animated series detailing the start of the fight against the evil Empire, is coming this fall – but fans can get a big sneak peek at San Diego Comic-Con.

Lucasfilm’s special panel, The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels (Thursday, 7/24/14, 6:00pm – 7:00pm, Room: 6BCF), will feature executive producer Dave Filoni, as well as the first panel appearance by executive producer Simon Kinberg and stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

Scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

ON – Ribbit Screening

ribbit

Director Chuck Powers hosts the premiere screening of Ribbit with a special Skype appearance by star Sean Astin on Saturday, June 21 at 3:30 PM! The screening will be at Landmark Cinemas as part of the Niagara Film Fest.

Synopsis: Ribbit is the proverbial “fish out of water” or in our case, “frogs out of water”. Simply put, Ribbit is a dreamer. With a serious dislike of water and of jumping, Ribbit is the antithesis of everything it means to be a frog. Ribbit longs to fit in, to belong, but not at the cost of being true to himself. Since fitting in to normal life is difficult for Ribbit, he loves to go to his “clubhouse”, a dilapidated, old airplane that had crashed in the jungle, and lose himself looking at old copies of National Geographic. There he sees all these other animals that belong, who have a purpose in life. He dreams of being like them and he longs for answers – even when he’s not sure of the real question. Even with all his doubts, Ribbit is never lacking in bravery, when things get tough Ribbit always steps up and becomes a hero – even though he doesn’t realize it. Watch the trailer below!

Tickets are available at the link!
