Disney is wasting no time at all in getting the most out of acquiring the Star Wars franchise and the company has greenlit an animated series titled Star Wars Rebels to premiere on Disney Channel in Fall 2014! The series will take place in the time between Episodes III and IV and "will be active in the story years that come after [the Skywalker twins'] separation as newborns and before their (unwitting) reunion on the prison level of the Death Star."

Here is what the 49-year-old actor had to share with the mag in his first magazine profile to be released since news broke of his partner Angelina Jolie‘s double mastectomy:
On his family making him happy: “I have very few friends. I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven’t known life to be any happier. I’m making things. I just haven’t known life to be any happier.”
On changing the direction of his life: “I’d get so far and then want to do something else. I mean, I’m two credits short of graduating college. Two credits. All I had to do was write a paper. What kind of guy is that? That guy scares me – the guy who always leaves a little on his plate. For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f–king off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany – a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what’s the point?”
On missing his kids when they’re not around: “I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big. I wanted there to be chaos in the house… there’s constant chatter in our house, whether it’s giggling or screaming or crying or banging. I love it. I love it. I love it. I hate it when they’re gone. I hate it. Maybe it’s nice to be in a hotel room for a day – ‘Oh, nice, I can finally read a paper.’ But then, by the next day, I miss that cacophony, all that life.”
Olivia Munn and her boyfriend Joel Kinnaman stock up on some food products at a local grocery store on Sunday (May 19) in Hollywood.
The 32-year-old actress is featured showing off her bangin’ bikini body in the June/July issue of Esquire magazine, on newsstands May 31. Here is what she had to share with the mag:
On nerdiness: “All the kids were cliqued up. I would end up eating with the old librarians.”
On being smart, funny, and beautiful: “In my life, I moved around a lot… you’re constantly the new kid, because you’re a military family. Oklahoma, Utah, Japan, different parts of Japan — and humor and being self-deprecating and sarcastic was the thing that could break ice in every situation. And so it’s a very antiquated idea to think that you can’t be pretty and smart and funny.”
On being the cover of Maxim: “When I was on The Daily Show and there was this Web site that wanted to criticize me, saying, How could she be on the cover of Maxim and be on this smart show? So I did the cover of Maxim again. Because, you know what? Don’t you want for your own daughters to grow up and be smart and funny and beautiful and embrace their sexuality?”
