– Dee Bradley Baker & Ashley Eckstein Join “Star Wars Rebels” Cast at Star Wars Celebration to Make the Surprise Announcement –
Fans attending the “Star Wars Rebels” panel at Celebration today were treated to an exclusive sneak peek at the second season of the popular Disney XD animated series with Dave Filoni (creator, writer), Simon Kinberg (creator, writer), Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Kanan), Vanessa Marshall (Hera), Tiya Sircar (Sabine), Steve Blum (Zeb), and Taylor Gray (Ezra).
An exciting season two preview trailer revealed that Vader will indeed be back, and “Clone Wars” fan-favorites Captain Rex, Wolffe and Gregor, all voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, will be joining “Star Wars Rebels.” The arena erupted when Baker made a surprise appearance following the preview. He was joined by Ashley Eckstein, voice actor of another fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano, who was revealed as Fulcrum in the “Star Wars Rebels” season one finale. Audience members were thrilled that “Star Wars Rebels” has welcomed Baker and Eckstein for season two.
“Star Wars Rebels” Season Two begins this summer with a one-hour movie event and continues this fall with all-new episodes on Disney XD.

After the leak yesterday, Zack Snyder went ahead and authorized the official release of the trailer 3 days ahead of it’s original release date. What do you think of what the trailer has to show us?
To be honest for Adam and myself (Andrea), Star Wars week started for us Tuesday night at the Dodgers Baseball game. The stadium was invaded with Jedi, Storm Troopers and Darth Vader. They even gave out free T-shirts to commemorate the night.
So, now, onward to the first day of Star Wars Celebration and our further adventures into geekdom!
First things first;
This place was in chaos this morning! There were lines for panels, lines for registration and more lines to get to the exhibit hall.
People, aliens, Storm Troopers and “Slave Leias” were every where.
As you can see, it would have been hard for anyone to miss “the droids they were looking for”.
Once we got inside to the exhibit hall, it was sensory overload. There were booths for taking pictures in your favorite Star Wars Scene to buying your favorite toys, so much to see and so much to do it was hard to decide where to truly begin.
I will be posting updates and photos here throughout the four day experience as we wander, explore, see all we can see and do all we can do. It will be an exhausting amazing adventure and we will bring it all to you from our point of view!
More to come later…

Day 3 ended up being the best of all 3. With it being a holiday the exhibit hall was less crowded and easier to maneuver. We were able to sit down with a few artists and conduct some great interviews. Those will be up on this weeks special Wondercon edition of the PanelCast along with a full review of the show. Until then, enjoy some more pictures.
