A December Release for Episode VII is a Good Thing

I realize that many Star Wars fans were not exactly thrilled that the release date for Episode VII was pushed back to Dec. 2015, but I, for one, actually find quite a few reasons to be pleased with the new release date.

1. The family oriented nature of the release date. I really like the idea of families making a holiday tradition out of seeing a new Star Wars movie on the big screen. The very idea of mere weeks before Christmas, getting together with family, and traveling to the movie theater to escape to that galaxy far far away is very appealing to me.

2. There’s no longer is this “Avengers cloud.” I’ll be honest. I always thought that Avengers 2 and Star Wars had to be released in separate time periods, but now that Disney has made the announcement, I do find some kind of relief, now that there is no kind of overlap. This will make for full Financial competition with other franchises outside of the Disney umbrella and prevent from Disney competing against their own dollars, even slightly.

3. A final thing that I think is really good about the December release date is simply giving the creative team more time. Ever since they first announced the 2015 release date when Disney first purchased Lucasfilm, I felt that it was a very short amount of time to produce a top-quality Star Wars film. I think that Star Wars fans everywhere can be reassured that the creative team behind Episode VII has more time to get it right.

The more I think about it, the happier I am about a December 2015 release date.

Star Wars Rebels: Our 6 Heroes Revealed

In an interview with IGN executive producer Greg Weisman said about the cast of Star Wars Rebels, “We have a character who’s our focus character, and then five other characters that make up this group of six rebels. Even within the first season, that cast expands, and there are more people, but the focus is still on this small group of rebels..”

Although more characters may be added to the cast as the season goes on, it looks like our main cast of heroes will number six. Thanks to information coming out of this past weekend’s New York Toy Fair we now know the names and faces of all six. If you haven’t been like me and obsessively following Twitter to keep up with all the info that has been flowing, here is a rundown of what we know about this team of Rebels.

Chopper (C1-10P)

Chopper

Back on January 28th Lucasfilm gave us the first official reveal of one of the good guys in the show. Chopper is the astromech droid of the team. But don’t expect him just to be another R2-D2. Dave Filoni described the character as grumpy yet loyal. “If R2 is your favorite dog then Chopper’s a cat.”
