This weekend’s Star Wars Celebration held this year in Anaheim has seen a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which we revealed here at borg.com earlier this week, and today new previews just dropped for the coming season of Star Wars Rebels and a new video game, Star Wars Battlefront. It makes sense that Disney and its new company Lucasfilm would be pulling out all the stops in this banner year for the franchise.
Since Disney took over the Star Wars brand, we’ve seen new canon universe novels (Star Wars: A New Dawn, previewed here, Tarkin, previewed here, and Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi, previewed here, thanks to advance copies from LucasBooks). And we saw a record for bestselling comic book release with this year’s new Marvel Comics Star Wars monthly, discussed here. We can only expect more from now until the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December.
If you’re not in Anaheim this weekend, you can still catch what’s going on via live streaming on YouTube here:
You can see new Stormtroopers (and their weaponry) on stage with director J.J. Abrams and members of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast old and new here (worth checking out):
