Several months ago, we let you know that Firefly Online was going to be A Thing. (The fact that I can’t find that post says something about my inability to tag my posts.)
Today at SDCC, we just got the news that the entire cast will reunite for the game, Alan Tudyk will be providing several roles, and Niska, one of the most terrifying of Mal’s personal nemeses, will also be returning. More details can be found at the Firefly Online website.
San Diego Comic Con has barely begun and we’re already getting news. Check out this picture that Dave Filoni tweeted of action figures of Sabine and Hera!
The final arc of Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman’s fantastic Star Wars comic continues as Legacy #17 hits comic store shelves today! (And this review continues to be sad that we’re in the last few months of this book.)
Ania and company have followed the coordinates from Jao’s transmission to the rogue planet but their mission to rescue the Imperial Knight is far from over. They no more free Jao from his bonds when a literal army of Sith arrive hell bent on taking out Darth Wredd once and for all!
Good Morning Star Wars Fans! Apparently we’re not waiting until SDCC this weekend for all the news as a brand new extended trailer for Rebels hit the internet in the wee hours of the morning.
So, our Intrepid Leaders are on their honeymoon, which means the B-team is subbing in this week (we’re sorry). Here’s what we’ve got:
J.J. posted another video for UNICEF’s Force for Change, and this time, he’s showing off an X-wing in the video. Take a look at Mashable.com. Personally, I’m thrilled at yet another look at practical effect props showing up here, and I’m looking forward to a comparison of this X-wing to those from the original trilogy.
Meanwhile, Badass Digest claims to have plot details for Episode VII. I don’t think I need to note how very, very, very unconfirmed that is, but if you’re wanting to stay unspoiled, you might want to avoid, just in case. (TOTALLY UNCONFIRMED, BY THE WAY. And some of it doesn’t make ANY sense. Like, at all.)
That’s the news for this morning. Naturally, since The Intrepid Leaders are on a boat, Bria and I are expecting some sort of exciting news to drop at some point this week. (You might remember that Brian and Nanci were on a cruise when Episode VII was announced.) We will be exacting revenge for this later.
Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #3 by Jeremy Barlow and Juan Frigeri hits comic store shelves today and Maul’s vendetta against Darth Sidious continues!
Count Dooku and General Grievous are now captives of Darth Maul after a fierce battle in the last issue. Maul tries to convince Dooku to abandon Darth Sidious and work with him and Mother Talzin instead. Meanwhile, the Jedi have gotten wind of Maul’s latest victory and spot an opportunity to take out two enemies at the same time…
It’s difficult to discuss this issue without going into the “surprising facts from Maul’s past” that the solicit alluded to so from this point onward, this review will have spoilers despite my usual policy to write spoiler free.

On this episode of Tosche Station Radio, we talk Dragon Con and the best Star Wars fan programming in the whole convention landscape.
Kicking off the show is Fixer’s Flash. The hosts have kept busy with rewatches of 90s era television and the World Cup. They saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the verdict? Go see it. Go see it now. Weird Al is still a genius and he proves it with new parodies: Tacky & Word Crimes.
Deak’s Dirt starts with book news as The Star Wars lit sampler from Del Rey released on Amazon. In comics, Marvel will be reprinting their classic comics in an all-new hardcover omnibus. There will NOT be an Episode VII panel at SDCC, so don’t get your hopes up. Thor! Is now a lady!
In Biggs’ Bull$#!*, Karen Gillen’s Hair won’t be appearing in Episode VII, so put Mara-related rumors related to that to bed. Do we know Daisy Ridley’s character name? Maybe, but most assuredly not!
This week on Camie’s Concerns the hosts are joined by Star Wars at Dragon Con track runner Brandy Roatsey to discuss the convention, the track, panels, and guests. What sets Dragon Con and the track apart from other conventions? Listen in to find out. If you’re already attending, we highlight what events and guests you have to look forward to this year. Want to find out more? Follow Brandy and the track on Twitter.
