    On this week's buzz we have a first look at the upcoming Rogue One comic book adaptation; a very cool explanation of what Bio-Hexacrypt could mean in The Last Jedi; a high quality look at the great Rebels clip from last week; a few Celebration announcements; some funny tweets and more.



    This week we start with a brief preview of the Rogue One comic book adaptation. Official press release via Newsarama:

    Here are several pages from the comic with still not final art (for all the images go to Newsarama):

    Donnie Yen posted this cool image on Twitter. It's one of the many deleted scenes from Rogue One, revealing more backstory on Chirrut Imwe. We really do hope to see this in a future Rogue One home release edition.








    John Boyega's problems with some of The Last Jedi fancy dialogue are now officially framed thanks to Rian Johnson.






    There are lots of theories and speculations already what this could mean. Here's one that sounds really plausible and scientific. :)



    From Tumblr member bripenguin13 (via ClubJade):




    Disney XD has finally uploaded a hi-res quality of the super cool Rebels clip that aired last week, featuring the Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul duel.









    Very cool concept art from Rogue One with Vader without the suit:







    A brief offtopic. It seems that Avatar 2 is heading to a December 2019 release. With 'Han Solo' set to hit theaters in May 2018, it seems logical that Episode IX will keep its May 2019 release date as it is set now. Of course this is just a speculation. I personally really like the December release of the saga movies.










    Now you can pre-order the official Star Wars Celebration Orlando t-shirt with The Last Jedi logo. Looks really nice!








    Speaking of Celebration, you can get the official app for assistance and information if you're attending the event.





    Also all the passes are on their way. Can't wait to get ours. :)








    Chuck Wendig's Aftermath: Empire's End is currently at #3 on NY Times' best sellers list.







    There is a new Star Wars section at the Legoland in California. It's really impressive.







    Fantastic fan art with the Knights of Ren. Can't wait to see them in action in The Last Jedi.







    Now this is something we all want to see, right?






    A few informative and interesting shares from the official Star Wars site:



    Dave Filoni and his Lothal cats. Cool announcement for Rebels Season 4







    And of course Filoni is coming to Celebration Orlando. Last year Rebels Season 3 stole the show during Celebration London, it would be interesting to see what they have in store for us this year.







    Nice article on lightsabers. Make sure to check the link from the tweet.






    The BTS trivia from the last episode of Rebels is released. Check it out:







    Interesting fact about K-2SO:








    This week Oscar Isaac and Freddy Prinze Jt. had birthdays. Congrats!












    Now several funny tweets:


    We know that The Last Jedi starts exactly where The Force Awakens left off. So here's a good guess at the movie's opening crawl:





    Have you heard of the new generation of Rey shields?







    Now that's badass.








    Mark Hamill shares his new villainous look from The Last Jedi.








    Nope, that doesn't mean that Luke will have purple hair in The Last Jedi. :)



    As always fans showed their creativity making numerous funny photoshop manipulations with that image. You can check them all in the Huffington Post link below:






    Here are some of our favorite:











    Stay tuned for more next week.
