The upcoming animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series has kept production expectedly tight to the point where we've only learned of the casting of a major villain and a feisty R2 unit.

A new report suggests that 'Star Wars Rebels' will first release a feature-length premiere, followed by additional shorts and a proper fall 2014 debut!
'Star Wars' forthcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' has been keeping pretty coy with its character and plot specifics, though at least one overarching theme has been inescapable: The Empire is everywhere!

The other day 'Star Wars Rebels' lifted the veil just high enough to introduce us to the "Ghost" crew's feisty R2 unit "Chopper," but as tends to be the case with major blockbusters, now LEGO has delivered a much more revealing look at the new series with fresh images of the group's Millennium Falcon-like ship, and more!

Chief among the excitement for 'Star Wars Rebels' is its ability to plumb the depths of periods mostly unexplored on film, particularly between the time between trilogies wherein the Empire cemented its power.

Much as we're anxious for a look at the newer, more "official" 'Star Wars' canon and the 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series to come, there can be no doubt that 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' left a number of threads dangling in both produced and unproduced material.
