'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") executive produce.
