Star Wars Rebels has unveiled its villain, the Inquisitor, at New York Comic Con. Watch it below. The animated series, which premieres in fall 2014 with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel then segues into a series on Disney XD, takes place roughly 14 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, a time in which the Emperor’s rule is secure and the Empire is seeking to expand its power to Outer Rim territories. At the Lucasfilm panel, exec producer Dave Filoni revealed that the Inquisitor is “tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi Knights.” READ FULL STORY
Feel-good viral video star Kid President just got The celebrity interview: The chance to sit down with Beyoncé. “So excited I could die,” he happily declared.
The singer and Kid President met up to promote World Humanitarian Day (which is August 19), a cause Beyoncé has long been affiliated with. “I know it’s so admirable the people around the world who dedicate their lives to other people,” Beyoncé shared. “I know it’s important to take some time to be unselfish and have compassion, because we really can impact the world.”

Punky Brewster left TV screens 25 long years ago — but her can-do spirit lives on in Soleil Moon Frye, the actress-turned-business maven who won the role of Punky when she was just seven years old.
In recent years, Frye — best known to a slightly younger generation as Roxie, Sabrina the Teenage Witch‘s cynical college roommate — has reinvented herself as a professional parent. She’s currently overseeing her DIY parenting blog Moonfrye while simultaneously serving as Target’s “Mommy Ambassador,” writing books like this fall’s Let’s Get This Party Started: DIY Celebrations for You and Your Kids to Create Together, hosting OWN’s Home Made Simple, and regularly spotlighting fellow “momtrepreneurs” on Today.
Oh, and as she just announced this morning: The mother of two is having another child.
Sesame Street has a history of parodying TV-MA shows, including True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Mad Men. Now it’s Sons of Anarchy‘s turn. Jax, Clay, Bobby, and Tig ride as the “Sons of Poetry.” They run rhymes, not guns. Watch the video below. “Just a hobby, right, Bobby?” “No big, Tig.” “Relax, Jax.” “Whatever you say, Clay.”
It’s two nerdy tastes that taste great together!
Hasbro announced this morning that its KRE-O construction brand — think “rhymes-with-Schmego” — is joining forces with Dungeons & Dragons, the fantasy role-playing game that’s been synonymous with “nerdery” since 1974 — and which, as luck would have it, is owned by Hasbro’s subsidiary Wizards of the Coast. The toys are set to hit shelves next January.
D&D fans lucky enough to be in San Diego later this week can check out the new sets at Hasbro’s Comic-Con booth. From 9-10 a.m. on Friday, July 19, they’ll also get a chance to receive a special edition KRE-O D&D collectable poster, as seen above. KRE-O sets themed around Star Trek, Transformers, and G.I. Joe will be on display at the booth as well.
File this one under inevitable but exciting news: EW has learned that The Lego Group will release a collection of movie-inspired building sets celebrating the brand’s premiere in a film (The Lego Movie, featuring Chris Pratt and Morgan Freeman, hits theaters in 2014.)
“The Lego brand has been a vehicle for creative storytelling around the world for decades, so it’s no surprise that there is such growing enthusiasm for the first Lego theatrical film,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The Lego Group in a press release. “We are thrilled to collaborate with our valued partners to build a varied and compelling portfolio of products through which fans of all ages can celebrate this Lego brand milestone.”

T-minus one day until Degrassi‘s triumphant return to TeenNick! Though TV’s greatest Canadian import is heading into its 13th season, it shows no signs of slowing down — expect a new season filled with hookups, breakups, and other capital-D Drama, starting with the scene you’ll see exclusively below.
In it, we catch up with Maya and a newly bleach-blond Tristan, who are getting ready to have the best summer vacation ever — even though one of their pals has apparently been written off the show. (At least there’s a brief explanation for why she’s missing, delivered with typical Degrassi finesse. That’s more than Kendra got!)

If you were a child of the nineties (or a parent of one) you understand the excitement that happens when you hear the chants of “Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill!” Whether you were watching at home or at school, Bill Nye the Science Guy was must-see-TV for a generation. The classic show that ran on PBS from 1993 to 1998 used outrageous experiments and plenty of corny jokes to teach kids all about the scientific method, the speed of light, the Periodic table, craters, dinosaurs, and so much more. And no matter what was the science-based topic, it was always clear that Nye was having a great time teaching kids to ask questions about the world around them.
So it’s no surprise that now, 20 years after the program originally aired, when speaking with 57-year-old Nye about anything — from his new brand-new science app for kids to his day job as CEO of the Planetary Society – the conversation eventually finds him passionately expounding on something he wants you to learn: From South Africa’s new space program to how the dinosaurs likely died (a ginormous crater!), Nye will talk at length about how it’s all interconnected, and how there is so much more to discover. His excitement is still contagious, so it’s encouraging that a brand-new self-titled free app will help a whole new generation of kids do things like try some do-it-yourself experiments or check out a sun dial. “All the kids are doing it with their electric computer machines,” he explains with a laugh about why the time was now to create an app. “They’re fun. It’s a way to engage people and include people in a way beyond the 22-minutes they spend watching [a] show. Bring it on!” READ FULL STORY
