Rebels Recon #9: Inside “Path of the Jedi”

In Rebels Recon #9, StarWars.com interviews the cast and creators of Star Wars Rebels about the episode "Path of the Jedi," features a behind the scenes look at the show's editorial process, and shows a special preview of “Idiot's Array.”

In "Path of the Jedi” Ezra and Kanan embark on a quest to find a hidden Jedi Temple and undergo an essential rite in Jedi training, one that will test their resolve and convictions. Together, master and padawan move forward in their journey thanks to insight from a distant Jedi Master. Upon the completion of the harrowing trial, Ezra receives a small Kyber crystal and is able to construct his own lightsaber.

Star Wars Rebels Editors Alex McDonnell and Joe Elwood give an inside look at their work on the show. "It's an Editor's job to be the spokesperson for the audience," says McDonnell of their role in the production process, and discusses the emotions that editors can create by using varying angles and pace. Elwood adds that when looking at an episode as a whole, the biggest part of their job is to connect the story points and "make sure everything makes sense."

In this week’s deep dive, Lucasfilm’s Andi Gutierrez talks to associate producer Carrie Beck and the Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo about Jedi Temples and their function as a center of the Force. “We've seen a couple in Clone Wars,” he says says, “so we know that there are other temples scattered throughout the galaxy.” When discussing Ezra's trial within the temple, Beck emphasizes that "the temple environment is responsive to who you are," and adds that this reflects Luke's trial on Dagobah.

“Path of the Jedi" marks the symbolic return of Jedi Master Yoda, voiced by the character's original voice actor Frank Oz, which Executive Producer Dave Filoni calls "a great thrill."

For this week's Twitter question, @ericgeller asks about the Imperial Army.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
