Two Trailers

I think it's safe to assume that anyone who reads this blog is already familiar with the news coming out of the Star Wars Celebration this weekend. Even so, it seems appropriate--and even obligatory--to repeat some of that information here.

First and foremost, of course, is the trailer for Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

The Force Awakens Teaser 2

This one looks really pretty and provides more insight into the story for the film. It conjures some mixed emotions, too, because of how it seems to handle much of the storyline that was developed for after Return of the Jedi.

Perhaps more relevant to this blog, however, is the trailer for Season 2 of Star Wars: Rebels.

Rebels Season 2 Trailer

I find it especially interesting to see how that series, which felt a lot like an Edge of the Empire campaign during the first season, is starting to feel more like an Age of Rebellion campaign--at least in what one can see from the trailer.

Whatever the case, I think it's safe to say that 2015 is an exciting year in which to be a Star Wars fan.
