The Force Awakens: a Droids Influence?
December 15, 2014 - The digital Star Wars: The Force Awakens cards that can be seen at starwars.com have revealed the names of all of the characters seen in the teaser trailer! While most of the names sound completely new, one of them sounds very familiar, at least to Droids fans. Remember the pirate captain who was a thorn in the side of Jann Tosh and his friends named Kybo Ren? Kybo Ren was the main nemesis of the Jann Tosh story arc and was the namesake of the 8th Droids episode "The Revenge of Kybo Ren". Could this new villain be a grandson of the pirate captain? Is the name just a coincidence? Were J.J. Abrams and the writers of The Force Awakens watching Droids and liked the name? Whatever the story is, it's nice to see that Droids is still possibly being mined for material by new Star Wars storytellers.

News Roundup - July 2014
July 16. 2014 - Even though it's up in the air as to whether Droids is part of the official Star Wars canon anymore, it's cool to see that there are some Droids references in the upcoming TV series Rebels! To the left you can see a picture from the new Rebels Visual Guide posted on Facebook by Star Wars Sourcebooks that mentions the names of some of our favourite Droids characters. Perhaps Droids still is canon but takes place before Rebels? Either way, it's nice to see that Droids has not been forgotten by the creative team behind Rebels.
