The Metro: Star Wars Rebels Explodes At San Diego Comic Con 2014

My latest article lands over at The Metro as I take a look at the awesome Star Wars Rebels reveals at San Diego Comic Con.

If there was a better place in the world for a geek to be last weekend (other than on the set of Episode VII) then it HAD to be across the pond at San Diego Comic Con. Once a year the world of comics, television and film converge at the San Diego Convention Center for a four day long celebration of all things geek, with events hosted by and starring the world’s top movie and TV talent, writers and artists from the comics industry (comics being the genesis of the event which began back in 1970 with special guests Forrest J Ackerman and Mike Royer speaking to around 100 attendees) and hordes of cosplayers who see the event as the mecca of the convention year.

With Episode VII still well over a year away the Star Wars focus of SDCC2014 isn’t on the J.J. Abrams film but on 2014’s forthcoming series Star Wars Rebels.
