We are all anxiously awaiting the debut this year of the new Star Wars Rebels animated TV series currently in production at Lucasfilm Animation. Previous materials have said that the series would debut this fall. Happily, our wait time might be reduced a bit.
In his 2013 letter to shareholders, Disney CEO Bob Iger had this to say about Star Wars Rebels:
While the world eagerly awaits ‘Episode VII’ to open in theaters, we’re introducing ‘Star Wars Rebels’ to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD.
Meanwhile, on the Star Wars Rebels Facebook page, new propaganda-style posters have been released encouraging us to “Join the Empire,” among other things. Check out the coolness above.
Great! I’m happy the force lives on
