The final and fourth season of Star Wars Rebels will premier Monday, October 16th on Disney XD
Well in the final season the Ghost crew joins the Rebel Alliance that is having a hard time against the enormous and powerful Galactic Empire. It becomes even more personal for Ezra as the Empire threatens Lothal with Imperial Occupation. The entire crew goes back to fight an all foe the evil genius Grand Admiral Thrown. Going home means that they will reunite with old friends and make new alliances to try to throw the Imperials off his home planet.
What do YOU think is in store for our ragtag crew of rebels? I’m hoping that we’ll see more of Kanan & Hera’s relationship (I read the book about how the met <swoon>). I don’t think that Sabine will never stop thinking of Ezra as her ‘kid brother’ but I don’t think we’ll get a Princess Leia/Luke reveal that he’s REALLY her brother! I’m very excited about meeting some of the new characters and creatures in the final season. I love the alien creature we’ve met over the past three seasons on Star Wars Rebels and can’t wait to see what Dave and the team think up for the epic final season! Leave a comment below or tweet me @cherry_LA with what have been some of your favorite episodes, stories and characters! Let’s live tweet the premier episode and get ready to be on the edge of our seats as the final epic season unfolds. May the force be with you …..

I saw Rogue One and was intrigued by the Rebel Freedom Fighter Saw Gerrera played by Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker. I am very excited to get to know Saw better when he joins the Ghost Rebels Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Ezra to fight the Empire.
“It’s an incredible honor to have Forest Whitaker play Saw in ‘Rebels,'” says series executive producer Dave Filoni. “Forest did a great job at capturing Saw in a way that is a bit mad, a bit crazed, a bit afraid, but also a bit sympathetic. He sees something coming, but no one will take action before it’s too late.”

If you are getting confused about what time period the Disney XD series fits in the Star Wars film history it’s a prequel to the new film Rogue One. Forest will be voicing Saw Gerrera (from the film) in the debut episode “Star Wars Rebels: Ghosts of Genesis, Parts One & Two” that premiers Saturday, January 7th (8:30-9:30 PM EST).
It’s very exciting to hear from Dave and the team behind the animated series that is enriching the Star Wars mythology! Dave’s work on Clone Wars and Rebels is such a labor of love from a fanboy who grew up to work with George Lucas. Dave’s work on the series is a bridge for not only the films but also to fans young and old. What I love about the series is that they give us an opportunity to delve into characters and stories that can unfold as only a weekly series can as opposed to a film with a finite amount of time.
The character of Saw Gerrera was first introduced in the TV series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (2008-2015) as a guerrilla fighter for his home planet. Created by George Lucas, Saw received training from the Jedi – Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano – and served as an early harbinger of the Rebel Alliance, an assortment of disparate groups coming together to fight for a common cause.

Nissan has done something no other film and car company collaboration has done. They have the very first Star Wars branded automobile with the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition package.
If you have seen the Nissan commercial you may have thought is the Nissan Rogue IN the new film??? ‘No it is not says Jeremy Meadows, Senior Manager who worked with Lucas Films to bring the crossover to dealerships across North America. The commercial uses the Nissan navigation system to keep the driver safe in a galactic war zone from the new film. It’s quite mesmerizing so I’ve watched it a few times as I count the days to the premier.
Of course now I’m counting down the days and trying to save money for the down payment of this limited edition crossover. As you can see from the video it’s not in your face but instead has simple touches that are noticeable by fan boys/girls but the average person may not realize what rear images mean but the nameplate … well that’s an easy giveaway for even the most casual fan. You can order the special edition starting at $28,950 (front wheel) that comes standard with Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance logos for the D-pillar, Rogue One badges on the front doors, backlit Star Wars doorsill plates, Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire logos in the cupholders and logo floor mats.
This trim is only available in Magnetic Black and Glacier White but both colors come with the numbered full-size Death Trooper helmet that will be mailed once you pick up your Rogue from the dealership. If you want to order the Rogue in All Wheel drive that will be an additional price.
Do not hesitate to add your name to the list of Jedi, Rebel, Mord Sith or Empire lovers since only 5000 will be produced for the U.S. market and additional 400 for Canada. I checked on the Nissan site but they don’t have the pre-order option up quite yet.
What color would you buy and are you Rebel or Empire??? Leave a comment below if you plan to buy a 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition or cosplay when you head to the LA Auto Show and dream about having your own.

Are you a Star Wars loving lego enthusiast? Well Disney XD’s new animated television show, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, is the show for you. It’s a 22 minute series voiced by Vanessa Lengies, Nicolas Cantu, Eugene Byrd, and Matthew Wood.
The Freemakers gives the audience a new story focused on a scavenger family, the Freemakers. They are a family of three, and the youngest member, Rowan, is extremely strong with the force. As many fans of the infamous series know, when a character is strong with the force the audience can expect multiple hi jinxes. It’s a new story, that doesn’t feature Leia and Luke Skywalker as the main protagonists. But original fan favorites are still featured; Luke and Leia made their first appearance in episode 5 and Darth Vader and Darth Sidious, formerly Palpatine, made their first appearance in episode 1.
The Freemakers salvage parts from destroyed or abandoned ships and use the parts to create new ones, that they then sale to earn a living. But when Rowan discovers an ancient artifact, the Kyber Saber, he discovers his connection to the force. He is then mentored by a seemingly good-intentioned jedi named Naare. This scavenger family is now in the middle of the battle between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance. As there is a search for the Kyber Saber crystals where good and bad are compete to find the crystals. And all is not as it seems.
This show is very interesting and it captivates the audience’s attention from the first scene. All in episode one the viewer will discover so much, and there are multiple introductions of characters, ships, and themes. All in episode one the viewer will discover that Naare doesn’t have good intentions with Rowan and is actually with the Empire.
Overall this a great show and the visuals are what the audience should expect from a lego based television show. It stays true to what is expected from a show with such a strong fan base, it introduces new and old characters that viewers will come to love.
The next episode airs July 18 on Disney XD at 10:00 AM.

I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They’re not much bigger than two meters. – Luke, Star Wars: Episode IV A new Hope
Better keep Luke away from the new Star Wars Death Star Grill available for pre-order from TheFowndry for £99.99 (estimate $142.54 US) or he just might blow it up with a few of his rebel pals! <guffaw> This grill is for the carnivore AND vegetarian grill fan or just a Star Wars fanboy/fangirl that must own a Death Star the can fit in your home or apt patio area. Just make sure that the rebels don’t make off with Princess Leia before your down with the interrogation! I think this looks almost TOO good to use and would look great in my living room full of geek collectibles!
What will you cook in the Death Star? Let me know in the comments below and maybe I’ll swing by for a BBQ cookout!
Star Wars Death Star BBQ

That’s no moon… It’s the sun! And if it’s hovering over the house it means barbecue season is upon us. But don’t settle for your run-of-the-mill sputniks, dazzle your guests and terrorise the outer rim planets with the Death Star BBQ.
This officially licensed outdoor grill is made from stainless steel – so even if you’ve strafed it with a rebel sausage, it’ll still buff up like new. The intricate detailing isn’t just there for show either. Cleverly disguised as a devastating laser, the lid of the Death Star BBQ has an adjustable thermal vent – perfect for regulating heat. Just keep an eye out for X-wings.

Spoiler Alert! The new mid season premier of Star Wars Rebels returns on Wednesday, January 20 (9PM ET/PT) on Disney XD.
*SPOILER ALERT* Here’s a New Mid-Season Trailer for “Star Wars Rebels”… I mean how can any Star Wars fan not <squeel> with Princess Leia, Yoda and Darth Vader expanding on the series as we explore the call of the dark side? If you have not been enjoying the series I say you’ve been missing out on a show that appeals to a fanboy/fangirl in a different way than my beloved Clone Wars. The decision to use a different animation style and new characters expands the universe. You don’t have to LOVE Star Wars to be a fan of the action packed series. The first season focused on introducing each character with unique backstories that didn’t feel like a blue print of the original or new trilogy. Instead they forged a new path that is a fun show for all ages. I know it’s on Disney XD so you may think it’s just for kids but once you watch the show you’ll see that it’s a truly all age series perfect to watch as a family or alone. So get ready to enjoy a series that has a darker feel than you’d expect from Disney XD but EXACTLY what you wanted as a Jedi!

I’ve gone to the dark side for the Star Wars Half Marathon on January 17th in Anaheim next weekend and am sharked that I’m all about Darth Vader! If you plan to do the run next weekend make sure that you check out the REVISED RunDisney rules as far as cosplay goes because (I’m sad to say) no super fun costumes this year . So to stay on the safe side I will not be going as a Jedi or as Endor (no Ewoks for YOU) and had looked at some running pants that were printed but I’m frugal so didn’t want to spend too much money for items that would be too distracting at the gym. I decided going all black would be a good compromise to my not being able to wear Jedi robes. I am a bit curious about rather anyone will try to wear a full outfit but I won’t take a chance. I am very disappointed since a big part of the fun is seeing all of the other fans dress up in cosplay as you run or walk (or in my case) around Disney in the dark with all the rides lit up. It’s quite the sight and is enough to make anyone’s tiny little grinch heart grow three times as you walk around the park!
What are you doing to comply with the new rules? Let me know!

If your a secret Santa at work and want a fun gift or stocking stuffer or just have a tshirt nut well you can’t go wrong with a fun tshirt for your geek. You don’t have to go to a convention to find a tshirt that will appeal to any fan. You can find a few fun ones at Kohls, Target (affordable) or Nordtroms (midrange) or try eBay for a original tshirt from back in the day. You can buy a good shirt from about $9.99 and more depending on your price range from Target to Nordstroms and more online. One of my favorite is Somethinggeeky where you can work with them to design items from sweatshirts to skirt if your not a DIYer!! But if you are crafty you can grab fabric paint and jewels to personalize any of the shirts and bedazzle them for the festive party season or just to make the t-shirt your own for year round fun.
A few of my favorites as I obsess over The Force Awakens!
