Lucasfilm Bringing Star Wars Rebels And More To New York Comic Con 2013
Posted by Eric on September 12, 2013 at 03:12 PM CST |
StarWars.com has announced Lucasfilm's plans for New York Comic Con 2013 (October 10-13), including an early look at Star Wars Rebels and a panel about The Making of Return of the Jedi by J.W. Rinzler. Here are the listings for those events.
Star Wars Rebels: The Might of the Empire
Saturday, October 12, 2013
2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m., Room 1E
What happens when the Galactic Empire takes over a planet? What if Imperials took interest in your world, and garrisoned Stormtroopers and TIE fighters to maintain order? Star Wars Rebels, the thrilling, all-new animated television series from Lucasfilm for Disney XD will ask those questions -- and so will this panel hosted by Lucasfilm's resident Star Wars expert, Pablo Hidalgo.

Details on the show are closely guarded, but fans at NYCC will get a first look at new art from the series, and learn new information about the formidable forces of the Galactic Empire. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the awesome might of Imperial forces in the spotlight.

The series is still a year away, so don't miss this chance to get an early look at its development.

The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
Sunday, October 13, 2013
2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m., Room 1A23
This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. Go behind-the-scenes of this fascinating film with author and Lucasfilm executive editor J.W. Rinzler and author Jason Fry. Hear some of the stories, anecdotes, recollections, and revelations collected in Rinzler's new book The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and see amazing photos and video from the set. Details about the upcoming enhanced e-books for all three titles in Rinzler's The Making of Star Wars series will be revealed.
Head over to StarWars.com for the complete NYCC 2013 programming details.

UPDATE: Pete at Lightsaber Rattling noticed an extra paragraph in the New York Comic Con website's description of the Star Wars Rebels panel. That paragraph turns out to be moderately revealing about the focus of the series:
Luckily, there are those who are brave and daring enough to stand up against the oppressive Imperial might: the crew of the starship Ghost. Star Wars Rebels follows their adventures as they carry out thrilling missions against these dark forces.
