The Force Awakens has been an overwhelming success in every way. It's pretty safe to say Rogue One will be also... or is it? It's the first spin-off, the first with a different tone, and the first without the iconic main characters. What kind of struggles will it face? How will Lucasfilm handle the marketing and merchandising? And perhaps most importantly, how will the mainstream audience deal with a non-Skywalker Star Wars film? Find out what Erik, Lou, & Chris think on this week's Echo Base!

It appears that iTunes is not the only place where Star Wars Rebels season two has been broken up into two seasons forcing fans who's cable companies do not carry Disney XD to pay twice just to view the entire season. The same thing is happening at Amazon, and fans are so upset that currently season two has only a 1 star rating on the site. It is so sad to see this happening to such a good show. I hope someone figures it out soon, otherwise a portion of the Star Wars Rebels fanbase will disappear.

LEGO announced a new animated Star Wars series coming August similar to their two previous animated series The Yoda Chronicles and Droid Tales. The announcement was made at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and also included news of some new LEGO sets. The Eclipse Fighter (75145) and the Star Scavenger (75147) will play a big part in the show. There will also be Rogue One sets coming out in October. Look close at the image above, is that a Slave One ship shown above the Rogue One wording? Is it a hint of what we'll see in Rogue One?

Fan of TheForce.net JPS writes - "Just wanted to write and let you know that iTunes has split Season 2 into "Volumes" and now with the second half of Season 2 customers are expected to pay another $28.99 for the remaining episodes. That's $60.00 for 1 season, with no disclaimer that this was being done at the beginning of the run. Truly a rip-off."
