Earlier this week we had confirmation that Boba Fett will be showing up on Star Wars: Rebels. Now the official Star Wars Insider Facebook page let it slip that Lando Calrissian will be showing up as well. Making Star Wars caught the snafu before it was deleted and here's the screen-cap:
If Lando and Boba wasn't enough, ANOTHER movie-verse character will be jumping onto the show for an appearance as well, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jedi News broke the story when one of their reporters attended a Hasbro Disney Store Sneak Preview Report with an Obi-Wan figure listed for the toy-line along with a picture. Here's the low-res picture they caught:
As for the final bit of Star Wars: Rebels news, Simon Kinberg the silent co-creator/writer of the show isn't being so silent any longer. In an interview with Collider, Kinberg confirmed the Lando news above, and said that the first season of the show will run sixteen episodes. Not only that, but Disney XD will air the program as he called it in a: "'Movie-of-the-Week' format where two episodes air back-to-back."
Kinberg also confirmed he's only writing three episodes for the series: the first two and the season finale. You can catch Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD in the Fall, but watch for it's series premiere on it's mother station, The Disney Channel, sometime later in the Summer.
