In the break between Star Wars Rebels episodes “Idiot’s Array” and “Visions of Hope,” Megan Crouse shared some thoughts about diversity in the show and Rebels tie-in material on her own blog.
Apparently, all of that procrastination I did between episodes came back around to Dhara. Idiot’s Array was an excellent episode, not just because of the diversity. Lando’s appearance and Hera’s strength reminds me that diversity will only improve the show.
Meanwhile, Kay contributed to Star Wars Report’s Women of Star Wars series. The awesome thing is she had so many women to give shout outs to! The Women of Star Wars is a series curated by Bethany Blanton, who also happened to be a recent Her Universe Fangirl of the Day. Johnamarie Macias of The Wookiee Gunner was chosen as the winner of this month’s #FlauntYourWorld contest from Her Universe. Want to congratulate these ladies? Tweet @BethanyLBlanton and @BlueJaigEyes.
On Rebels Recon, Andi Gutierrez talks to Dave Filoni about hinting to things to come, specifically the identity of Fulcrum, which Kay has speculated about here. Filoni might have too much fun toying with the fans, including a hint (or possible distraction) in the video itself. Kay and I had fun speculating about Fulcrum and Star Wars Rebels on the latest episode of Rebel Yell, and check out Johnamarie’s Rebels Chat for more.
