Star Wars Rebels made a big splash at last week's San Diego Comic Con as the entire cast of the upcoming Lucasfilm Animation show was there. This week on RFR, we've got Rebels panel moderator David W. Collins joining us with a full recap of everything that went down. Plus, James Arnold Taylor stops by to talk about Obi-Wan's return in Rebels along with a complete report from Disney's Star Wars Weekends. And if that weren't enough, we have the latest news coming from the set of Star Wars Episode VII, including filming happening on location in Ireland, an upbeat Harrison Ford Ankle-Gate update, and Mark Hamill talks about returning to the Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Sam Witwer is back to join Jimmy & Jason in the RFR screening room as our film commentary series continues with Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Listen in as we have a great time watching the second prequel film with tons of observation, analysis, and a few laughs along the way. If you are looking for a prequel-bashing hate fest, go somewhere else. Sam always brings incredible insight whenever we get together to watch a Star Wars flick and our discussions always have elements of discovery, enlightenment, and on occasion, shock! But all in all, a great time. Watch along with us or just listen to this as a stand-alone show. You know the film so well yet you will feel like you are watching it through a different lens when you join us for our commentary track for Attack of the Clones!

We discuss our thoughts on this old-yet-new design and explore the Ralph McQuarrie./Joe Johnston influence on it's look. Also, we discover some artistic inspirations for the Wookiee, AT-AT, Bespin, Hoth, and R1-G4. Use the photo gallery below while you listen to Paul Bateman and Jimmy Mac discuss Star Wars Influences!
