Star Wars Rebels Invades NYCC and the Star Wars App

An exclusive convention giveaway and new updates to the Star Wars app celebrate the return of the Ghost crew!

It may be a long way from Lothal, but the presence of the rebellion is strong at this year’s New York Comic Con. Today’s events included a panel featuring the cast and creators of Star Wars Rebels, along with a special preview screening of two episodes from the upcoming second season of the show. But the celebration of Star Wars Rebels Season Two didn’t end there.

New Star Wars Rebels-themed emojis arrived today on the Star Wars app (available for iOS and Android), featuring heroes, villains, and more from Season Two. Get a sneak peek at some of the new additions below, including the clones, Inquisitors, and, of course, Loth-cats.

(There’s also one new, very special emoji: Star Wars Rebels co-creator, Dave Filoni. Hat included.)

These new emojis join recent Star Wars Rebels updates to the “selfie” feature, and fans anxious for the Season Two premiere on Disney XD — October 14 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT — can also check the official countdown clock found in the app.

Exclusive Captain Rex pins — based on the classic clone’s new Star Wars app emoji — were also handed out at NYCC to celebrate the return of the 501st’s greatest soldier.
