Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD



In the Fall of 2014 Disney will be filling the void left by Star Wars: The Clone Wars with a new CGI animated series!

Star Wars Rebels.

A 1-hour pilot for Star Wars Rebels will premiere on the Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD.

Lucasfilm have said: "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."

Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars) suggests the series' look and feel will derive inspiration from Ralph McQuarrie's original concept art for Star Wars.

“The entire team at Lucasfilm has provided extraordinary creativity and innovation over three decades, and we’re thrilled to be bringing the expansive and imaginative world of ‘Star Wars’ to Disney XD’s viewers,” said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.

I'm going to miss The Clone Wars! However, Star Wars Rebels should satiate fans whilst we wait for Episode VII.
