|Star Wars Rebels|
Star Wars Rebels is an animated television series set in approximately 5 BBY, during the timespan between the films Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It will begin airing in Fall 2014 on Disney XD.
"It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes."
Lucasfilm Ltd. veteran sculptor Darren Marshall, who worked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars prior to its cancellation, developed sculpts for the core characters of Star Wars Rebels before leaving Lucasfilm in June 2013. By December 2013, the production crew had finished developing the series' first season and had begun animating the first script.
Star Wars Rebels was first announced on March 11, 2013, as an unnamed animated series set to replace Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Its name and premiere date were announced in a press release on May 20, 2013. It will premiere in Fall 2014 with a one-hour special on Disney Channel written by Executive Producer Simon Kinberg. Following the premiere, the series will move to Disney XD.
