"Star Wars: Rebels" Animated Series Planned For Disney XD

One hour kick off special planned for fall 2014

The corporate fall out of Disney buying Star Wars was pretty much the nail in the coffin for Cartoon Network's Clone Wars. Looks like the Star Peace will not be lasting too long, because Disney has started production on Star Wars Rebels, which will launch in fall 2014 as a one-hour special on Disney Channel before debuting as a full-fledged TV series on Disney XD.

 

The series takes place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and follows  fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.


Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes) serves as executive producer and will write the premiere episode. Dave Filoni, who was supervising director on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Greg Weisman (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice) will also executive produce.
