Exciting news for all us Canadian Star Wars fans! It has been announced that the Canadian premiere for the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels will be taking place during the annual Fan Expo convention in Toronto. The screening will take place on Friday August 29th at 2 pm in the John Basset theater.
Rebels star Steve Blum (voice of Zeb on the series) will be in attendance, so hopefully he'll stop by the premiere to say a few words to the fans at the screening. Another cool Star Wars happenings during the convention is the special 'Roast of Darth Vader' event on Saturday the 30th at 7pm, featuring comedians Greg Proops (who provided the voice of Fode in The Phantom Menace and of Tal Merrick on Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Sean Cullen, and Darrin Rose. The Phantom Menace star Ray Park (Darth Maul) will also be in attendance at Fan Expo, signing autographs for the fans.
Fan Expo Canada takes place from August 28-31 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in downtown Toronto, Ontario. Other, non-Star Wars, guests include William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Richard Dreyfuss, Stephen Amell, and many more!
