Star Wars Rebels

The animated series Star Wars Rebels seems to be getting more and more popular. Executive Producer Dave Filoni was popping up everywhere and was easily one of the more popular people on hand at Star Wars Celebration. The future of Star Wars Rebels will be short lived as it was announced that the show will just have one more season. However, this season looks to be awesome. More connections with the various Star Wars movies and characters will be made. The stories of the crew of the Ghost will be explored more deeply. What the fate of all of them ends up being will be left to season four to answer. Judging by the trailer though… it will be an awesome season!

Star Wars Legacy & John Williams

The Star Wars legacy was shared quite a bit this weekend. Celebration began with the 40 Years of Star Wars panel that dove into 40 years of the galaxy far far away. Several of the remaining principle cast members from the original Star Wars trilogy were on hand as were some newer cast members. Memories were shared about the last four decades that wrapped up in a touching tribute to Carrie Fisher. The tribute ended up with a surprise performance by John Williams and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra as they played Princess Leia’s Theme, the main Star Wars theme, and The Imperial March. It was an absolutely incredible way to start Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 and seeing John Williams grin as the crowd reacted to The Imperial March was priceless!
