Star Wars Rebels, the successor to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, will launch in fall 2014, ahead of the of the new big-screen trilogy. It will debut with a one-hour special on the Disney Channel before becoming as a full-fledged television series on Disney XD.

The series is set between the events of Stars Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, “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.”

Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes) will write the premiere episode and serve as an executive producer, alongside Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, Young Justice).

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

    Nope for once Weisman got lucky his show cant be cancelled do to the fact the Star Wars Franchise always sales toys. Hell Clone Wars would still be going if it wasn’t for the the fact Disney bought it.

    Good Job Greg looks like you get to keep a job for once.
