Everyone buckle your seat belts! We’re about to make the jump to lightspeed, as a brand new Angry Birds Star Wars 2 “Rebels” update is coming next week. The update will most likely land on Wednesday October 1st or Thursday, October 2nd.
Let’s break down what we know thus far. Oh wait, short of the Tweet that we posted below and a similar post on Facebook we don’t know squat.
All-new Rebels episode for #AngryBirdsStarWars2 coming out next week! pic.twitter.com/LKjrBsGKQr

Wait, actually, kudos to @mpg973. Several days ago he dug up some details on a new pack of Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Heroes and Villains Telepods, which he shared in this comment. Even though the image below is not brand new, it seems to have slipped under most everyone’s radar. Thanks for sharing @mpg973.
As more information comes in we will be sure to update it here. Even though we don’t have a lot of details I am looking forward to the update. Are you?
I’ll play it just for the hilarious rendition of Imperial Roast Pork (sounds expensive – must taste good!) prepared with Sith seasoning :)
@les-toreadors I wonder if these characters will have a separate Character Swap button, or just be thrown in with the original Star Wars characters
This new update is supposed to be based off of a new show coming to Disney XD in October called “Star Wars Rebels”
I’m really looking forward to this new update!
P.S: I hope this Star Wars Rebels update doesn’t ruin the Angry Birds Star Wars 2 adventure…
I bet that the update on the map screen will be over in the “miscellaneous” area (that’s what I call the area on the left with Reward Chapter and Master Your Destiny (to prevent spam chatting, im gonna combine all my thoughts into 1 post)
I bet the time period in the Star Wars universe is after Return of the Jedi, because in Star Wars Rebels, there are Stormtroopers; but why isn’t this episode in the first Angry Birds Star Wars?
For all you Angry Birds Star Wars 2 fans out there, Revenge of the Sith is predicted to land in October (late I think)! :)
In other news, Star Wars episode 7 will be released to movie theaters in December 2015!:)
And for all you Super Smash Bros fans, the 3DS version is releasing next week!(October 3rd) the Wii U will release in late November of this year!
Heh, this looks neat. I’m not that much of a fan of Star Wars Rebels, but I might be after this.
Thanks @Birdleader I prepared a list from Star Wars Rebels characters:
..Ezra Bridger (like Anakin) http://www.starwars.com/databank/ezra-bridger
..Kanan Jarrus (like Chuck) http://www.starwars.com/databank/kanan-jarrus
..Hera Syndulla (Pilot Female) http://www.starwars.com/databank/hera-syndulla
..Zeb Orrelois (like Black Bird) http://www.starwars.com/databank/zeb-orrelios
..Sabine Wren (Top left in pack) http://www.starwars.com/databank/sabine-wren
..Chopper (C1-10P) (like R2-D2) http://www.starwars.com/databank/chopper
..The Inquisitor (Bottom left) http://www.starwars.com/databank/the-inquisitor
..Agent Kallus (Middle Right) http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kallus
..Imperial Officer ??? No photo found.
..AT-DP Pilot ??? No photo found.
..Chikatro Vizago (Bottom Right) http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Cikatro_Vizago
..Vizago Droid ??? No photo found.
This story is between Revenge of Sith (ABSW2) and Tatooine & Death Star (ABSW1)!

It said the Inquistor has a double-sided light saber, like Darth Maul
@mpg973 i read that the “Imperial Officer” pig isn’t really that characters name; its Lythe (or something like that)
@Rowdypup Do you have any link or photo from “Lythe”? where did you notice it?
I guess Vizago Droid is top right, Imperial Officer is top left and AT-DP Pilot is middle left. also I guess:
Ezra -> Ride Rocket like Anakin!
Kanan -> Lightsaber like Luke!
Sabine -> Same 3 Lasers!
Chopper -> Electric like R2-D2!
Inquisitor -> Lightsaber like Grievous!
Agent Kallus -> Large lasers like Lando!
Imperial Officer & AT-DP Pilot -> 6 lasers like Panaka!
Chikatro Vizago -> Squelch like Jabba!
Vizago Droid -> Crash to multiple parts like C-3PO!
also, mpg973 I thought that Vizago droid would be cool if “it” could do that Tornado thing that Poppy from Angry Birds Stella does, because Vizago droid is shaped like a drill
PS: I noticed that Vizago droid is holding a gun, so maybe it can shoot! :)
also I’ve seen a few pictures (and shorts on Disney XD about Ezra) and it shows him with a special glove that has a mini slingshot on it that shoots plasma or electricity or something so maybe this could be Red’s power, but I am also curious to see how this could work because Red (or any of the Birds and Pigs) doesn’t have any hands or wings,but, the glove could just float next to Red to show he’s wearing it (this also happens in Veggietales because real life vegetables don’t have hands or legs so stuff just floats by Bob and Larry) :)
If those powers are really true I don’t think these will be new characters at all. Just the old characters “morphed” into the new set for this episode only. ( And maybe more Rebels episodes in the future. )
Oops. I meant to reply to @mpg973.
I tried the above link to order the telepods, it didn’t work…… Are they still available?
Yay! SWII levels are always both fun and challenging.
SW2 is fun to play because of the swapping of characters is permitted. The options for each character make it interesting is their selection for a particular level.
I ordered the telepods through Toys R Us and they should ship 10/1/14 according to their information.
Ditto @wrw01, I too pre-ordered these & if they ship on time, fingers crossed, I’m hoping they’ll arrive by the end of the week, but with no est. delivery date, who knows. I’m of the BC (before computer) generation & find the idea of Telepods absolutely fascinating; oh the little things that amuse me.
So….. fellow nesters, will this update incorporate or end LCS?
@wrw01 i dont see these new telepods onthe ToysRUs web site. Can you help point me where to go to order these? Thanks
It seems that when the AB Transformer telepods were released TrU took the postings down. You may want to try Ebay but at the present the sellers may have them marked up.
If you wait a few weeks, their prices should come down on Ebay. You also may want to check a local Toys R Us store after 10/15/14.
Thanks @wrw01 I found them online and just received them on Thursday. The green bird that shoots lasers for an extended period of time is extremely useful. Lots of good birds in this pack.
so will this chapter be part of the game or like an extra episode?
@Joeyba Not a part, not an episode…. Is a character pack…
@joeyba i actually think there will be a new episode with new levels, not only new characters with no levels like @mpg973 said..
@Josm I don’t think because story of Star Wars Rebels is After the Revenge of Sith!
I really hope they remove Last Chance from this app, I hate cheats…
Er mi gursh(oh my gosh)! I cant believe this! BUT…wouldn’t that replace the other coming soon part, though? I mean ,come ON! We all already know that it would have been Obi vs Anakin. Plus, now I thinking ” is it just characters or characters AND levels?”(right now, I’m wishing for both) WHO KNOWS? We’ll just to find out on its real exact date: October 1st 2014.
@sonic36321 That Revenge of the Sith episode should release in late October, or that’s what I read somewhere
Credit where credit’s due – @sntrooper pointed out the Rebels set 2 months ago in the News and Rumor thread –
I m really excited. when’s it arriving
@rohitnaik The update will most likely land on Thurs. October 2nd, but it could also come out on Weds. October 1st.
@kelani it’s October the 1st (Wednesday) and there is no Star Wars 2 update on the App Store. It will probally come tommorow because if you notice, Rovio tends to release updates on Thursdays (that’s what I’ve seen)
See you tommorow! :)
does anyone had idea that new lvls are coming with it or not or just some characters coming? will there be galactic giveaway coins. And the name of the chapter is just “rebels”.I can’t wait more.
Someone please tell me the timing of the star wars rebels show on disney xd i googled but did not found the result
@rohitnaik No one knows. But the tweet says “episode” so I would guess new levels. If it was just characters I would think they would have said “update”. As for the show it is premiering on Oct 3rd. The first episode is also available right now on the DisneyXD website.
Rebels update out now on Amazon Appstore! (The new birds have crazy abilities)
edit: cc: @admins
24 Levels, 12 on each side. Not to mention new master your destiny levels and reward chapter levels.

Is the Telepods pack coming out, or has it been discontinued? The only places I see it is the Hasbro Star Wars site (not the toy store), & at the Toys “R” Us (pre-order area) not the regular inventory.
