It could be a while yet before 'Star Wars Rebels' premieres any official footage or major scoops post-New York Comic-Con, but a few new details of the premise have leaked out from executive producer Greg Weisman, including more on the new animated series' setting, and designs of both familiar and new locals for 'Star Wars' fans to enjoy.
Star Wars Rebels
We haven't heard much in the way of 'Star Wars' forthcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' since New York Comic-Con, but it seems the recruitment process has begun. The latest poster for the animated follow-up to 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' wants you to join the Empire, so take a look!
This past weekend at New York Comic-Con lifted the veil on 'Star Wars' next TV iteration 'Star Wars Rebels' quite a bit, though Lucasfilm may be plotting even more phantom content than we might have realized. A new report suggests the company has begun plotting for two Darth Vader-themed TV specials potentially connected to the series, but what would they be about?
This past weekend at New York Comic-Con brought with it plenty of 'Star Wars' buzz and new details for upcoming animated series 'Star Wars Rebels,' but fans of the now-canceled 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' will finally get a bit of closure as we've learned when the final-produced episodes will ultimately premiere.
'Star Wars Rebels' had been kept largely a mystery since its announcement, beyond a time frame and a few scant setting details, but the animated series' presence at this past weekend's New York Comic-Con force-pushed the lid right off. Not only do we know when and where 'Rebels' will take place in between 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope,' but also that the Jedi-hunting "Inquisitor" will play a major part!
'Star Wars Rebels' will likely keep its cards close to the chest, even through tomorrow's New York Comic-Con panel, but that won't stop the new mid-trilogy animated drama from recruiting early. A new propaganda poster and the official plot description for the 'Star Wars' TV series has emerged to follow this past week's teaser, but for the dark side or the light? Join the rebels and fight the Empire with our latest look at the series!
Late last week, we found that 'Star Wars'' first venture into the franchise future with the animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' would shortly ignite its first teaser, and today Disney XD has delivered. Our first look at the new series set between the prequel and original trilogies has arrived, so what can we learn from the brief footage?
Ever since Disney announced that 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' would close down production in favor of the new series 'Star Wars Rebels,' which is set in between the original trilogies, we've been more impatient than Luke Skywalker for a look. Now it seems we may only need to wait until next week, as the first teaser of 'Star Wars Rebels' has been scheduled to air.
It's become increasingly difficult to separate truth from rumor in the ongoing revamp of the 'Star Wars' franchise, as every day seems to bring new reports of leading actors or fan-favorite characters slated to join the new film trilogy. If nothing else, however, confirmed animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' has made new strides in shoring up a voice cast, from the likes of Freddie Prinze Jr. and 'The Butler' star David Oyelowo, himself previously rumored for a role in the films.
Given all the world-shattering 'Star Wars' upheaval over the last year -- between Disney's purchase of the franchise, plans for future films, and the dissolution of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' in favor of 'Star Wars Rebels' -- one item that seems to have been lost in the shuffle is that of the long-gestating live-action TV series. Recently, however, ABC president Paul Lee offered an update on the prospect that puts a glint in our eyes the series might someday get off the ground.
