We are kicking off our third day at Star Wars Celebration with the New Allies and New Villains in Star Wars Rebels panel! Follow along with our liveblog below, and check out the live stream over at StarWars.com.
Get a first look at Star Wars Rebels season two:
The Stars of Star Wars Rebels panel is about to start!
What better way to kick off a panel than with poetry?
There are so many adorable kids dressed up as rebels. We wish we were between 6 and 12 to win some prizes!
Your host, James Arnold Taylor, enters the stage and shows off his awesome Rebel kicks and his many unique voices.
Taylor Gray, Tina Sircar, Steven Blum, Vanessa Marshall, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Simon Kinberg, and Dave Filoni have joined the stage.
“Star Wars was the reason I wanted to get into film in the first place.” – Simon Kinberg
Freddie’s scar on his chin is from playing Star Wars. He has appreciated Star Wars from the beginning, but it has gotten deeper since Rebels started.
Tina has turned her mom into a Star Wars fan by being on the show. What’s great about Start Wars is that anyone can get into it at any time and still be a fan.
Simon’s earliest memory is camping out to see A New Hope.
During auditions for the show, Dave tried to keep it under wraps that the show was Star Wars. Somehow Freddie figured out that “sun sword” was a code word for “lightsaber” and put the pieces together. We have no idea how.
“You see how Dave is a Sith Lord.” – Freddie
Possible spoiler alert from Tiya. We’ll let you watch the video for that one.
The whole panel takes a seat on the floor to watch the first preview of season two.
Standing ovation for the preview of season two. We’re watching it one more time! Old friends are coming back, and we couldn’t be more excited.
The more the merrier!
Ashley Eckstein and Dee Bradley Baker join the stage!
It’s been two years since Ashley and Dee have recorded together, and she is so happy that Rex is back.

It takes the smallest of Star Wars fans to ask the biggest questions. A young boy asked how everyone survived the Clone Wars.
“We all love Rex. Kanan, not so much.” – Dave
Eliza asks, “Who does Chopper’s voice in the movie.”
All past characters who are coming back are here to help tell the stories of the current characters. Dave says that he’s being careful with who he’s bringing back and doesn’t want the show to seem like a stream of guest appearances.
