New Star Wars Rebels Series to Debut on Disney XD

For all of you super fans out there, we are excited to share that production has begun on Star Wars Rebels, a new animated series coming to Disney XD in 2014.

Scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV – an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Details about the show are a closely guarded secret at this point.

Notable names on the project include screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) as executive producer, and writer of the premiere; executive producer Dave Filoni, who served as supervising director of the ®Emmy nominated Star Wars: The Clone Wars since 2008; and executive producer Greg Weisman, who brings with him a wealth of animation experience with credits such as Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles.
