Disney has, unsurprisingly, announced its renewing Star Wars Rebels ahead of the new series' premiere tomorrow on Disney Channel.
“The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher,” said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide. “And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”
Early reviews are encouraging for the follow up to The Clone Wars. Much has been made of its alleged 'childish' art style. However, the creative team have alluded to a darker direction.
“Our fantastic creative team is dreaming up new stories for the crew of the Ghost that will expand their experience of the galaxy and deepen their heroes’ journeys,” said Kiri Hart, vice president of creative development for Lucasfilm. “The fan response to the show has been amazing, humbling and inspiring. We’re looking forward to the adventure ahead.”
