Disney+ and Lucasfilm Tease First-Look at ‘Ahsoka’

“Ezra’s out there somewhere. And it’s time to bring him home…” four years ago, those final words ended one journey, and began a new one, as the beloved Star Wars: Rebels brought its four-season run to a close. For years, Rebels mastermind, and overall walking Star Wars encyclopedia, Dave Filoni, has been asked when we’d get to see that new journey unfold. And this weekend at Star Wars Celebration, Filoni finally answered that question.

Putting the ‘Bebop’ in ‘Cowboy Bebop’ with Steve Aoki and John Cho

It’s time to jam Bebop fans! Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop debuts today! And while it isn’t perfect, it’s still pretty fun in a pretty campy way. However, the one thing the show gets right is the music! And heavily inspired by the terrific music of the original anime, the music in the new adaptation pays homage, while managing to carve out its own identity for itself (much like the show as a whole). And someone who knows all about that is iconic DJ Steve Aoki!

NOC Review: ‘Cowboy Bebop’ is a Mixed Bag That Will Test the Purists

So much like my review for Snake Eyes, I will set a disclaimer about the fact that I’m by no means a hardcore Cowboy Bebop fan. I’ve seen the full series once through in my life, and I do like it.

But I’m not as emotionally attached or invested in the series as many out there are.

Why Tiya Sircar Should Be Sabine Wren in ‘Ahsoka’

This week, news broke that Lucasfilm was ramping up production on Ahsoka and looking for an actress to play a live action version of the popular Rebels character, Sabine Wren.
