Star Wars 40th AnniversaryI have been singing the praises of Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels for years, and now, with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story taking audiences back to a galaxy far, far away - but in a time period just prior to the events of 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope, there's even more pieces of the puzzle that are falling into place. In a masterful form, 'Rebels as been filling the gaps between The Clone Wars and the original trilogy, and with the release of the Season 3 Mid-Season Trailer, we see some new faces to 'Rebels that will be completely fresh in the minds of those who have just enjoyed Rogue One. A ton of Mandalorians, Saw Gerrara, Mon Mothma, and even some "crazy old hermit" known as "Old Ben" are ready to join the action...

With Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story having just hit theaters this past weekend, I'd held off on a reveal that initially snuck out in an unlikely place - a poster at Toys "R" Us. Today the official announcement has been made that Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker, who stars as Rebel freedom fighter Saw Gerrera in Rogue One, will join the cast of the hit animated series Star Wars Rebels, which is set in a time period just prior to the events of Rogue One. Whitaker will reprise his role as Gerrera, providing the voice of the character as he makes his debut on Star Wars Rebels: Ghosts of Geonosis, Parts One and Two premiering SATURDAY, JANUARY 7 (8:30-9:30 p.m. EST), on Disney XD.

With STAR WARS REBELS Season 3 set to premiere on Saturday, September 24 (8:30 p.m. ET) on Disney XD, it's time for a refresher on what happened in Season 2 (just-released on Blu-ray and DVD). My friends at Disney put together a 2.5 minute look at the second season, essential viewing - especially for those not already well-versed in the ways of The Force. I've been saying since the beginning that STAR WARS REBELS is a must-watch, and with the events of the series having definitive connections to both the upcoming ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story and the in-progress new trilogy that kicked off with THE FORCE AWAKENS, there's much adventure to be had - a series for lifelong STAR WARS fans and new viewers alike!

The Future Scientists have confirmed what we long-predicted... the impending arrival of a being so remarkable, his mere existence may create a massive ripple... or better yet, a worm-hole in the fabric of space and time. I'm talking about FUTURE-WORM!, and with his self-titled animated series coming to Disney XD on August 1st, the time is now to prepare thy Robo-Carp for a bold new world of mighty adventure! Are you reading this article on your Future-Fone? If not, simply tape a Nerf dart to the top of your "smart" device and we should be good. When I last told you about FUTURE-WORM!, creator Ryan Quincy was throwing down some knowledge (read my interview here) on the genesis of his latest series and the nuts and bolts (and maybe Nerf) behind it. Now comes a new video with Five Fun Future-Worm! Facts that you should know...

With veteran voice actor Corey Burton turning on a variation of his unmistakable "Grindhouse voice" to narrate the action, the vibe is set for FUTURE-WORM!, the colorful new series following 12-year-old Danny Douglas (voiced by frequent Dirt Nasty collaborator Andy Milonakis), creator of a lunchbox time machine, and his companion, a worm... from the future. The result of when Future Scientists placed an ordinary worm into a Genetic Escalator to increase its intellectual capacity by 900,000% and infuse it with an insatiable need for adventure, FUTURE-WORM! (voiced by James Adomian of Comedy Bang! Bang!) is prepared for whatever challenges that time travel may bring, with the addition of a Photo Receptor Visor, Titanium Reinforced Abs and a Bullet-Proof Beard. As the duo engages in self-serving time travel packed with pop culture nods, along the way audiences will enjoy appearances by folks like Neil deGrasse Tyson as himself, and former STAR TREK "Number One" Jonathan Frakes as "Steak Starbolt," in addition to numerous guest stars (the legendary Paul Williams!) known by this writer, but not-yet-announced. On a recent visit to DisneyToon Studios in Glendale, I had a chance to check out the first full-length episode of FUTURE-WORM!, followed by a conversation with Emmy-winning SOUTH PARK alum Ryan Quincy, creator and executive producer.
