Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6 DVD/Blu-ray Rumor

According to The Digital Bits, an announcement of the sixth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on DVD and Blu-ray may be coming in about three weeks. The article states, “This should be considered unofficial, but word from retail sources is that Disney (in about three weeks time) is going to announce Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions for Blu-ray and DVD release before the end of the year.” In three weeks’ time, New York Comic Con will be in full swing, so maybe we’ll get the announcement at the east coast’s biggest convention? We’ll have to wait and see.

Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir Fan-Made Audio/Motion Comic

In the latest attempt to bring Star Wars: The Clone Wars back to life, a group of talented amateur voice actors joined together to record an audio version of the Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir 4-part comic book series. The results are most impressive!

Star Wars Rebels Clothing Coming to Her Universe

In about three weeks, Her Universe will debut new Star Wars designs just in time for the series premiere of Star Wars Rebels in early October. Ashley also added in a tweet that more Rebels designs will be coming next year at Star Wars Celebration. With current clothing and merchandise excluding one or both females of the upcoming series, I can’t wait to see what Ashley and the team at Her Universe have designed for the fangirl community!

Star Wars Rebels Books and Merchandise

The Wolfpack Podcast discovered a Star Wars Rebels poster, featuring the Inquisitor and the troops of the Empire, at Michael Arts and Crafts store for as low as $5. Michaels is North America’s largest specialty retailer of arts, crafts, framing, home décor & seasonal products for hobbyists and do-it-yourself decorators. Since I have to make a run to Michaels and buy more felt fabric for my Tooka dolls, I’ll definitely be on the lookout for this poster and any others that may be around.

The Wolfpack Podcast also found this set of life size cardboard cutouts of the Star Wars Rebels characters on Amazon and eBay (Sabine Wren, Zeb Orrelios, Chopper, Ezra Bridger, Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus, Inquisitor, Stormtrooper, and Ezra and Chopper).

Jedi-Bibliothek pointed the way to the latest book covers of Star Wars Rebels: Rogue Heroes, Posters-A-Page and the third installment in the Servants of the Empire junior novel series. The former contains 9 supersize posters, and it will be released on September 30, 2014. The novel is part of a four-part series with a debut date of July 7, 2015.

Episode 106: Breaking Ranks 

The Rebels send Ezra (going by an alias) on an undercover mission into the Imperial Academy to steal a decoder.
