Star Wars: The Clone Wars may be over, but the story goes on…Star Wars Rebels will begin next Fall, and Dave Filoni is giving us a little taste, courtesy of this video shown at New York Comic-Con. And we get a glimpse of Rebels Big Bad…a Pau’an known only at this point as the Imperial Inquisitor, who is sent by Darth Vader to hunt down the surviving Jedi…which makes me wonder if there were more survivors than just Yoda and Obi-Wan…and whether Ahsoka might make an appearance.

Star Wars Rebels takes place in the interim between Episodes III and IV.

Star Wars Rebels, new animated series to debut in 2014

by on May.20, 2013, under Television

Now we know what Dave Filoni has been working on since the announced ending of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. We knew it was a new animated series, and we knew it would be set at a time “untouched” so far in the movies and TV shows.

Star Wars Rebels will debut in the fall of 2014, starting as a one hour special on the Disney Channel, then as a series on Disney XD.

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. Details about the show are a closely guarded secret at this point.

Leading the development of the series is a creative team of exceptional talent. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) is an executive producer on Star Wars Rebels and will write the premiere episode. He is joined by Dave Filoni as executive producer, who served as supervising director of the Emmy nominated Star Wars: The Clone Wars since 2008. Executive producer Greg Weisman brings with him a wealth of animation experience with credits such as Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “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.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to explore new corners of the Star Wars universe,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president, Lucasfilm. “I think Star Wars Rebels will capture the look, feel and fun that both kids and their parents love about Star Wars.”

Star Wars Rebels will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Fans attending Star Wars Celebration Europe will be the first to get an exclusive look at the new series. Casting will be announced at a later date. More information about this developing project will be found on and on Facebook at
