According to the newspaper, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (who did the voice of Mace Malone in "Revelations") has just passed on.

Hufflepuffs are really good finders

@Brainiac - Thanks, I noticed that as well.

Harlan of the Ghosts - Thanks! I love trailers; it's a shame how they spoiler what would have been a powerful moment in the show: [SPOILER] Kanan finally deciding to use his lightsaber and revealing that he is a Jedi [/SPOILER].

Have it now.

Anthony> I checked the breaks between the Disney Channel airing of the Yoda Lego special. No dice. Gotta wait until May the Fourth (Be With You) to see the trailer.

There is balance in all things. Live in symmetry with the world around you. If you must blow things up and steal from those around you, THAT'S WHAT RPGS ARE FOR!

I don't know how many people here have discovered this, but there are now two books out (part of a series) that re-imagine the "Star Wars" as Shakespeare plays, based on the first "Star Wars" movie and now "The Empire Strikes Back" (retitled "The Empire Striketh Back", of course) - complete with illustrations on the cover of Darth Vader and Yoda in Elizabethan garb. I glanced through the second book at the local bookstore today and noted a few take-offs on Shakespeare lines (such as "If music be the food of love, play on" from the start of "Twelfth Night" and Snug the joiner's assuring the ladies of Theseus' court that he's not a real lion, just a guy in a lion costume).

Since Shakespeare plays a big role in "Gargoyles" and Greg's currently working on a "Star Wars"-based series, I thought it'd be of some interest here.

Rebels: **shrug** They probably just mean the premiere for Disney XD For what its worth, the folks running the YouTube account are also saying Sunday on the Teaser video's comment section . . . .

According to the official Star Wars.com blog:

"In the US, Disney XD will feature the Star Wars Rebels trailer during the premiere of LEGO's Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT." [ http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/2014/04/29/star-wars-rebels-trailer-debuts-on-star-wars-day/ ]

So I checked my DVR last night and the "The New Yoda Chronicles" is shown as a REPEAT on Sunday on Disney XD. It shows as NEW on the Disney Channel on Saturday at 9:00 PM. Anyone think that we'll get the Rebels' trailer early accidently? :)

Their is a story on fanfiction.com called the magus sister it's the same way as gargoyles series it just has not just the gargoyles turning to stone at night by the magus but also his sister zaus she has the same skin and hair color as him she is friends with the gargoyles as well if you read that story ever please make it a series of gargoyles it's very good to read and just thank if it would be a series it would be a big hit for all the fans who like gargoyles

I've sometimes wondered whether Macbeth met any of the figures from Shakespeare's history plays during his wanderings (particularly Richard III, in light of the parallels between their plays); since the English kings during this period were frequently at war with Scotland, he probably wouldn't have gotten on well with them, though.

Ok so out of curiosity I'd like to ask what other Shakespearean characters would you like to see in the Gargoyles verse? I noticed there was some background information for Caliban, Prospero and Caesar Augustus. But I would like to see what he would do for the rest of the cast of Julius Caesar and perhaps Hamlet as well.

The IGN list was a great read. Thanks for posting it.

And away we go on with the show!

Loved reading IGN's list just a week after grabbing the complete series on Blu-Ray :)

Chapter Four: The Ghosts.

(Though, if we weren't picking this theme for the countdown this week, the way I'd have been tempted to do it would have been:

"Fore!" *swings a golf club and sends a golf ball flying off - followed by an off-stage "bonk!" and a loud, angry voice saying "Five, six, seven" - a large, irate man with a lump on his head strides up to Todd - "eight, nine, ten" - pow! - "you're out!"

I'll confess this one's based on a "Donald Duck" strip I read in the newspapers many years ago.)
