If you’re a Star Wars Rebels fan, you’ve likely been chomping at the bit for season 2. I’m glad we had Star Wars Rebels: The Siege Of Lothal back in June, but I’ve been dying to see the crew of the Ghost back in action again.

Thankfully, Lucasfilm and Disney have announced new episodes starting Wednesday, October 14th (9:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and it sounds like things are going to get even more complicated and dangerous. New Inquisitors, the return of Captain Rex and other fan favorites (yay Hondo!), and our first real look into the back stories of our Rebels.

There’s also a new clip that fans of The Clone Wars are really going to love. For myself, I’m always amused by Kanan’s stubborn streak, which is definitely on display here.

Not to mention, Disney XD shared a new poster for season 2 and I love it.

If you’re not caught up on season one or you just want to watch it as a refresher, Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD this coming Tuesday, September 1st so you’ll have time before the premiere.

I can’t wait.

Watch the clip and check out the official synopsis and new poster after the break.

Whether you consider street artist Banksy to be famous or notorious, there’s no doubt he’s got a talent for making people think and look at things in a new way.

A new five week installation called Dismaland in Somerset, England is a “bemusement park” curated by Banksy that features artists from all over the world. Dark, sure—but also thought provoking, which is always good.

If you wont be able to attend in person, good news! Photos have been floating around the Internet for the last week or so, but UK’s Channel 4 News took a tour of Dismaland and recorded it.

Maybe that’s depressing news.

Decide for yourself after the break.

We’ve featured Isaiah Stevens‘ art here before because, well, we love it. But I’m pretty sure this series is my favorite so far of the stuff we’ve covered to date.

Disney and Star Wars meld in a collection of art that imagines Darth Maleficent, a Kiana Trooper, and Ursula The Hutt. Oh, and the Yoda Stitch teaching a youngling Lilo made my heart go squish.

See more of his work after the break.

Oh my Disney, these princes/guys painted as real life hunks are almost too hot to handle.

It’s the work of artist Jirka Väätäinen, and I believe I speak for many of us when saying, Thank You Jirka! His site also features a previous collection featuring Disney ladies.

Jirka’s new collection includes Tarzan, Hercules, John Smith from Pocahontas, The Beast/Prince from Beauty and the Beast, Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming from Cinderella, Aladdin, and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid with more to come.

Check out more handsome artwork after the break.

Just when we think we’ve seen every kind of Disney princess mashup, Jen Lewis goes and turns them into Minions. This might even top Disney princess Velociraptors.

disney princess raptors 011

Laura Cooper of the XP webcomic knows that the Disney mashup hungry world needed Disney Princesses as velociraptors. As she explains, “In honor of the movie Jurassic World, I decided to illustrate some raptors the way I feel they should be portrayed; as princesses.”

Check out the awesomeness after the break.

The old Maelstrom ride at Epcot in Walt Disney World is being replaced by Frozen Ever After next year, and Disney has released the first details about the ride. It will be set in Arendelle during summer with Olaf and Sven preparing for a Winter Festival. Guests will see the trolls and hear the story of Anna and Kristof’s first meeting. Naturally, it will all end with Elsa singing Let it Go from her ice castle balcony.

Get a full breakdown of the ride in the video after the break…

Tomorrowland George Clooney

It took about two seconds for Tomorrowland to fall flat on its face. The movie opens with Old Man Clooney (his character’s name is Frank Walker, but he’s Old Man Clooney to me) bickering with young ‘n’ peppy Casey (Britt Robertson) about the best way to tell their story to a yet-unspecified audience. Old Man C-Dawg is gloom and doom. Casey is an optimist and a dreamer. Which worldview will reign supreme?

Minor spoilers follow.
