Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD returns Wednesday night and is getting ever closer to becoming my most favorite outreach from the galaxy far, far away. If you haven’t seen the new trailer take a moment and marvel in all of its awesomeness…
Princess Leia? Yoda? The showdown between Ahsoka and Darth Vader? Yes, please! My mind is truly blown with the potential of these stories. And considering what the writers of the series have brought fourth so far, I feel really confident in their ability to continue bringing it. Same is true with Disney in their making the fan experience even more fantastic.
To date, we already have an impressive collection of action figures and ships available, and thanks to a post from the Star Wars Rebels page on Facebook, there appears to be NEW figures coming as well. A giant smile crossed my face when I saw this new Captain Rex figure. Now I wonder who’s next in the line up? I hear Yoda whispering in my ear now; “Patience. It is time for the Jedi to chill as well.”
The pacification process is made easier by Disney by way of their Rebels website. Lots of fun to be hand with videos and games but also if you haven’t discovered the Rebel Resistance Kit, you are missing out.
So much fun stuff is waiting for you or the Rebels fan in your hidden Rebel base. I know I simply LOVE printable’s and the site teases a lot to play with: postcards, stickers, and a Ghost crew ID badge, BUT it appears there’s some sort of snafu in the system as of this posting and many of the promised pages aren’t available yet. I was really bummed that the Chopper papercraft is also on the fritz. (Step it up Disney, I’m talking really good about you. Walt old buddy, don’t let me down!)
I’m sure all will be well soon at the sight and regardless the series will be back up and running tomorrow night at 9:30 Eastern on Disney XD. Until then, I’ve got stuff to print, er I mean “work to do”. May the Force be with you!
