Disney XD Reveals ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Full Length Trailer

I say this as someone with zero interest in Star Wars: Star Wars Rebels looks awesome. It has a CGI Firefly vibe combined with lightsabers and a belligerent robot. There is nothing else I could ask for out of my entertainment. (Aside from a cool pilot steering the ship, which it also has.)Watch the trailer for yourself and try to tell me you don’t want to go adventuring with those guys.

Star Wars Rebels premieres Fall 2014 on Disney XD.

‘Graceland’ Teasers Reveal First Look at Season 2

Get ready, guys, we are going back to Graceland this summer. Last summer, Graceland was a standout on USA and season two looks like it will pack the same kind of punch. The teasers give very little way, but we know Mike is back in the house and in charge of an eight week mission. How will the rest of the team react to the former new guy being the boss? Then there is Briggs who is still not in the clear since there a recording floating around connecting him to a murder. Good job, promo people, I am already anxious.
