Star Wars Rebels

Star Wars Rebels: Disney has revealed the appearance of the first Jedi of the post-Lucasfilm era. His name is Kanan, and he's descibed as a gun-slinging "Cowboy Jedi." He will be voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. in the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, which will debut on the Disney Channel this fall before moving over to Disney XD. [USA Today]

Noah: We've seen trailers and photos for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming Noah, due out on March 28, and everything so far has prepared us for a watery epic with a lot of animals and angry people. The cover for the graphic novel based on the first draft of the script, however, presents a slightly different picture; it's due to be released by Image Comics on March 18. [EW.com]

Insurgent: Robert Schwentke, who directed the surprise box office hit RED as well as the disappointing R.I.P.D., will next take on Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, which hits theaters March 21. Both films are based on the sci-fi book series by Veronica Roth and star Shailene Woodley and Theo James; Insurgent is already scheduled for release on March 20, 2015, with the third and concluding film, Allegiant, due on March 18, 2016. [Deadline]

Transcendence Trailer: Johnny Depp stars in Transcendence as a scientist exploring artificial intelligence; the newest trailer contains dazzling, previously unseen footage, as well as (possibly) more plot points than any of us need in advance. Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Rooney Kate Mara [corrected -- thanks to commenters!] and Morgan Freeman also star. The movie opens on April 17. [MovieClips]
