Daily Video Clip

Today's new video clip is the Star Wars Rebels: “Idiot's Array” preview. So we had heard previously that Billy Dee Williams had recorded dialog for Star Wars Rebels. Could that be Lando Calrissian sitting at the table playing Sabacc? Having a hand that makes 23 in Sabacc is called an idiots array, so I am sure that is the reference for the show title. Rebels is taking another week off, so this episode will not air until January 19th. Star Wars Rebels airs Monday nights, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, on Disney XD. Enjoy!

Star Wars: Smuggler's Bounty

It is coming! Star Wars: Smuggler's Bounty, a new audio drama created especially for Star Wars Celebration by Writer/Director Kyle Newman (Fanboys, the upcoming Barely Lethal) will be performed live at Celebration Anaheim.

Smuggler’s Bounty reteams the creatives behind the Celebration VI hit Star Wars: Smuggler's Gambit. Directed by Newman and co-written by Newman and F.J. DeSanto, Smuggler's Bounty stars Han Solo and is set during the events of the original trilogy. This one-time-only live performance is scheduled for the Celebration Stage, with music and live sound effects for a thrilling star-studded stage show.

Smuggler's Bounty will features hosts from all three Celebration stages. David W. Collins (Digital Stage) returns as our favorite Corellian smuggler, James Arnold Taylor (Celebration Stage) will lend his incredible vocal talents, and Jimmy Mac (co-host, Behind-The-Scenes Stage) will produce the live experience. Expected to join them will be The Clone Wars alums Sam Witwer, Jaime King and MANY other surprise guests, to help bring this great Celebration exclusive to life!

The Story:

After learning a valuable lesson in Smuggler’s Gambit, Han Solo and Chewbacca find themselves, for better or worse, fully committed to The Rebellion. However, while dispatched on a vital diplomatic mission on behalf of Princess Leia, Han, determined to finally wipe his hands clean of Jabba the Hutt, tempts fate by mixing his past and present -- only to watch it backfire! Trapped in a dangerous situation, Han is shocked to discover that an old flame may be their only hope for survival…

I am sure Smuggler’s Bounty will be even better than Smuggler's Gambit. I can't wait!

Fortune's Bob Iger With The Falcon

Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger stands next to the Millennium Falcon in the latest Fortune magazine. Lucasfilm’s special effects division, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), worked with Fortune to create both the cover and opening photograph in the story, an inside look at the innovative technologies used across Disney’s diverse businesses and brands. The collaboration started with our photo shoot with CEO Iger earlier this month in New York. The photos were then turned over to ILM to, well, work their magic. Not surprisingly, the secretive division was mum about the exact process for creating the realistic shot of Iger standing right on set, casually leaning against a chunk of metal (the image seen in the opening pages of the story).

As for the cover shot, Yannick Dusseault, visual effects art director for The Force Awakens, and his team gave Fortune six options showing the Falcon in different ways. The resulting image required the custom rendering of ILM’s computer generated Falcon. According to ILM, the fabled ship was rendered in wireframe form (a skeletal version) as well as a more layered “textured render,” which were combined in Photoshop to create the final image. Be sure to read the entire article.
