New Animated Series Star Wars Rebels Coming Fall 2014
May 20, 2013

Production has begun on Star Wars Rebels, an exciting, all-new animated television series based on one of the greatest entertainment franchises of all time. Scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Leading the development of the series is a creative team of exceptional talent. Screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) is an executive producer on Star Wars Rebels and will write the premiere episode. He is joined by Dave Filoni as executive producer, who served as supervising director of the Emmy nominated Star Wars: The Clone Wars since 2008. Executive producer Greg Weisman brings with him a wealth of animation experience with credits such as Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Gargoyles.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, "The entire team at Lucasfilm has provided extraordinary creativity and innovation for over three decades, and we're thrilled to be bringing the expansive and imaginative world of Star Wars to Disney XD's viewers."

"I couldn't be more excited to explore new corners of the Star Wars universe," said Kathleen Kennedy, president, Lucasfilm. "I think Star Wars Rebels will capture the look, feel and fun that both kids and their parents love about Star Wars."

The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV -- 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.

Star Wars Rebels will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Fans attending Star Wars Celebration Europe will be the first to get an exclusive look at the new series. Casting will be announced at a later date. More information about this developing project will be found on and on Facebook at

Air dates + details for those long-lost Star Wars: Clone Wars eps (but there's a catch)
Trent Moore wrote:The strange saga surrounding the unceremonious end of beloved animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars is taking another turn, so hardcore fans might want to relocate to Germany. Quickly.

When Disney pulled the plug on Clone Wars to make room for the new series Rebels, the studio already had quite a few episodes in the can. But the Mouse House didn’t show much interest in airing them, so they’ve languished. At best, fans were hoping they’d be rolled into an upcoming DVD release. Now it sounds like they could show up on German airwaves first.

It’s being reported by German media that the country’s SuperRTL channel has acquired broadcast rights to 13 seemingly unaired episodes, which they are calling the sixth season of the show. The episodes are set to debut with a two-hour block on Feb. 15, with three-episode blocks airing each subsequent week.

The international report indicates that a U.S. air date on Disney XD could be announced in the coming weeks. Considering Disney’s take on rights, that makes enough sense, since they’re shifting the properties over from Cartoon Network to Disney stations. Regardless of where it lands, let's just hope it’s true.

The German site Star Wars Union claims to have the synopses for some of the upcoming episodes. Check them out (albeit via mildly awkward German-to-English translation) below:

Condition unknown (Unknown):
Klonkadett Tup suffering from a serious nervous disorder, which ultimately causes the death of a Jedi Master result. To find out the motives for the attack, Tup is sent for examination back to Kamino. Anakin is a member of the monitoring teams, but then they are attacked by separatists.

Conspiracy (Conspiracy):
Klonkadett Tup is examined in the sterile laboratories of Kamino to find out the reasons for his shocking attack on the Jedi Master. For this, the cadet must Fives penetrate deep into his mind: He stumbles upon a hidden code-manipulation cloning program in the Republic.

Flight reflex (Fugitive):
The body of the Klonkadetten Tup is brought to Coruscant, where he is to be investigated by the personal physicians of the Registrar. Cadet Fives adjusts itself to investigate and finds out that a modified code was hidden in the brains of all clones.

Commands (orders):
Fives continues to look for answers to the mysterious act of Klonkadetten Tup. He seeks the personal conversation with Palpatine, but suddenly he is accused of trying to assassinate the Chancellor. Then take Fives escape.

An old friend (An Old Friend):
While she dwells on the planet Scipio, to establish a relief mission, Padme Amidala is called by its old Rush Clovis to help. Clovis is afraid of the bounty hunter Embo, because he wants to take action against corruption on his planet. Together with Padme he tries to leave the planet and to get help.

Clovis' advancement (The Rise Of Clovis):
Back on Coruscant, Clovis, is appointed chief of his clan pervaded by corruption due to a dubious trade. Anakin's distrust of Clovis creates tension in his relationship with Padme.

Resuscitation (Crisis At The Heart): Once it has entered into a pact with Count Dooku to Clovis suddenly finds himself at war again. As he brought the war to his home planet Scipio, the Republic must intervene.

Lost (Part 1) (The Disappeared (Part 1): The peaceful world Bardotta is threatened by an ancient prophecy, but now of the spiritual leaders of the people are gone by the earth. Therefore, the inhabitants of the planet call their ambassadors to the Senate for help. And Jar Jar Binks actually manages Jedi Master Mace Windu of the importance of the task to convince.

Obviously, none of this is truly confirmed until we get word from Disney, but it’s great to hear there’s at least a chance these episodes are on the verge of making it out into the wild. As for how this will fit in with that upcoming series finale comic run? That’s anyone’s guess.

Why Ahsoka Tano is the Best Thing to Happen to Star Wars in 20 Years
Lauren Davis wrote:Tomorrow, Lucasfilm will release final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Netflix, but the season won't include an arc centered on one of the show's main characters, Anakin Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano. That's a shame, not just because Ahsoka's growth has been one of the most compelling aspects of the series, but also because her character development has wildly improved the onscreen arm of the Star Wars franchise.

I recently started watching this series thru Disney+. I'm a dozen episodes in (there are over a 100? :shock: ).

I would say the quality (story wise) ranges from OK to terrible, with terrible being everything involving Jar Jar. I get that the animated series is (more) geared towards kids, but I do appreciate how they have no qualms about killing clones all the time.

I would say skip everything with Jar Jar and Padme, it's just filler.
The Ashoka episodes in season 2 (episodes 5 through 8) are good same with the Ventress, Savage Opress and Darth Maul episodes in season 3 4 and 5. I definitely cherry picked my way through the clone wars.
