Disney Planning Star Wars: Rebels Animated Series

One of the first casualties of Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm and its Star Wars franchise was Cartoon Network’s (a competitor of the Disney channel) hit CG animated action series, The Clone Wars, with the show no longer being renewed despite being a consistent ratings-earner. But fans shouldn’t have to worry about not having any Star Wars show to follow, as Disney has started production on a series titled Star Wars Rebels, which is scheduled to launch in the fall of 2014 via a one-hour special on the Disney Channel, before debuting as a regular TV series on Disney XD.

Star Wars Rebels is set in the timeline between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and focuses on the early stages of the rebellion, while the Empire consolidates its power.
