Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today confirmed an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom that Disney XD’s ‘Star Wars Rebels’ complete first season will be available to own on 2-Disc Blu-ray and 3-Disc DVD on September 1 (now available for pre-order).
Ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun listing the first season of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ for release on both DVD and Blu-ray on September 1, 2015, which puts it well behind the launch date of season two, which will be June 20.
The entries lack descriptions, so there is no hint at any potential bonus features, but they do report a running time of 450 minutes which appears to be 2 hours longer than the combined length of the first season, including ‘Spark of Rebellion.’ Even account for the introductory shorts, there seems to be a substantial amount of previously unreleased content to be expected.
In honor of the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015), Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm have provided us with hi-res stills from the feature. You can find the newly released stills in our gallery below, but what’s especially awesome to note is that some of the stills appear as both their cropped film ratio as well as both IMAX and 4K formats which show even more of the background.
Today at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm debuted the second teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015), which you can find embedded below.

Today at the Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim, California, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015) director JJ Abrams announced that one of the settings for the film will not be Tatooine has others have suspected, but a new location known as Jakku.
We have learned earlier today that as part of the promotion for the film, Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm registered a domain name for the film titled PlanetJakku.com. At this time, the site is dormant but Abrams teased that we may be learning more about the location very soon, so it is likely the site will be turned into a viral marketing website.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announced that Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic will be available to own on DVD and Digital on May 19, 2015, and is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com.
Strange Magic, a new animated film coming to DVD and Digital, is a fairy tale — but not your average fairy tale. This magical adventure features a host of colorful characters including a princess who has sworn off love, a dubious villain, a slightly nutty Sugar Plum Fairy, a tenacious elf, a mischievous imp, and a knight who is no Prince Charming. Bring home the enchanting tale the whole family can enjoy today.
Even if you aren’t a fan of Disney, there is probably little doubt you’ve heard some of the news coming out of the annual shareholder meeting that was held earlier today at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco: a Frozen 2 sequel is in the works and Star Wars: Rogue One is headed to a galaxy near you in 2016.
And then there are the parts you didn’t get to hear and see, the clips — unless, of course, you were in the at-capacity audience. Fortunately, I was one of them and I am about to detail (to the best of my memory) what I heard and saw when the live stream was blocked.
We have already reported on a mysterious title currently known only as Winter Tales Book and Magnetic Play Set — which many are assuming is tied to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens — but now Disney Publishing has announced plans for four novels to be published a month earlier, all on the same date.
Known only as Autumn Travels #1, Autumn Travels #2, Autumn Travels #3 and Autumn Travels #4, all four titles are slated to be released on September 4, 2015. The first three titles are listed as having a page count of 240 pages each and recommended for readers aged 8-12, while the fourth skews slightly older at 10-14 and clocks in at 304 pages. All titles are described as hardcover titles, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″.
Strange Magic, a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom from a story by George Lucas, Strange Magic will be released by Touchstone Pictures on January 23, 2015.
