"Star Wars Rebels" TV Series

Sneak Peek "Star Wars Rebels", the upcoming animated TV pilot, scheduled to premiere Fall 2014 as a one-hour telecast on Disney Channel, followed by a series on Disney XD channels internationally:

"...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..."

Leading development of the series is screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: First Class"), as executive producer and writer of the premiere episode. Dave Filoni ("Star Wars: The Clone Wars") and Greg Weisman ("Young Justice") will executive produce.

"The entire team at Lucasfilm has provided extraordinary creativity and innovation for 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.
