General

  • Lucasfilm Animation is looking for a Production Coordinator to join the Star Wars Rebels team. If you meet the qualifications and you’re interested, head on over to Lucasfilm Recruitment to apply today!
  • While at Star Wars Day at Sea, Bryan Young mentioned that Ashley Eckstein had asked Dave Filoni what she could say in regards to Ahsoka’s future on Star Wars Rebels. She said that Ahsoka has a future and that’s pretty much all she can say at this time.
  • Star Wars HQ posted a video about what we might see in the future in regards to the outcome between Vader and Ahsoka’s duel. Here’s the video’s description: Freddie Prinze, Jr., the actor who plays Kanan, recently revealed that yes, we will eventually find out what happened to Ahsoka Tano after her battle against Darth Vader. Find out what he says in this video! The question is: will we find out in Star Wars Rebels season 3 or will it be in a movie, other upcoming TV series, comic book?
  • Freddie Prinze, Jr., has his own podcast. It’s called Prinze and the Wolf. Here’s a description: “Prinze and The Wolf” is a podcast with Freddie Prinze, Jr., and comedian Josh Wolf that will cover everything from parenting, to MMA, to pop culture, to gaming. to cooking…you name it! With Freddie’s wealth of experiences/stories and Josh’s quick sense of humor, no topic is taboo and there are definitely no “safe spaces” on this show.
