POLL: Favorite Character from Star Wars: Rebels?

This month marks the premiere of the fourth and final season of Star Wars: Rebels.  The show, which continued in many ways on from the six seasons of Star Wars: Clone Wars, marks a decade in animation bridging the gap between the prequels and the original trilogy.  Many characters (Ahsoka, Rex, Hondo, etc.) that were introduced in Star Wars: Clone Wars have had big parts to play in Rebels, but who is your favorite character introduced into canon during Rebels’ run?  This includes fan favorite Grand Admiral Thrawn, the main adversary for the back half of the series (Thrawn was introduced in the novels, but made ex communicado by the rebooting of the EU; Rebels reintroduced him into the canon).

Star Wars: Rebels Season 4 Trailer #3 “This Is How A Rebellion Starts!”

The final trailer for the final season of Star Wars: Rebels‘ hammers home the connection between the animated series and the beginning of the Rebellion.  The series will return Monday, October 16 (12:30 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney XD and the Disney XD App. The final season of Rebels takes place about a year before Rogue One and A New Hope…..Ezra and Kanan’s odds aren’t great, is what I’m saying if you know the Jedi population when those films begin.  Read Coming Soon’s full description below.  I would say more, but I’m still finishing season three and don’t want to spoil things for myself.

In Theaters This Week (8/25/2017): Wind River, Birth of the Dragon, Leap, Ingrid Goes West, Good Time

Birth of the Dragon

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  August has proven to be a missed opportunity for studios.  With The Dark Tower‘s failure, any blockbuster with legs would have steamrolled for five weeks, but as it is we’ve seen record lows and this will likely be the worst summer in 25 years at the box office.  This weekend sees five new wide releases, and a few look promising with good reviews, but you may have to seek them out.

Brie Larson in The Glass Castle

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  Last weekend’s box office was the weakest of the summer yet, and unless you have a deep affinity for creepy dolls, this looks like a weekend to catch up on your TV as well.

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  July 28th begins a two-month period of uncertainty at the box office before the fall heavyweights check in, so we have three very different options: hyper-action, eco documentary, or animated film about poop emojis (I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to….or had sunk that low).
