Disney reveals new 'Star Wars' animation
MANILA, Philippines - Disney has started production for its newest animated series Star Wars Rebels set to take off in 2014.
The Hollywood Reporter says the Star Wars spin-off will be a full-fledged television series on Disney XD, with a one hour special before its debut.
Star Wars Rebels will reportedly focus on the impending Jedi rebellion against the Empire.
President and Chief Creative Officer of Disney Channels Worldwide Gary Marsh told the Hollywood Reporter that Lucasfilm has provided "extraordinary creativity and innovation for over three decades."
"We're thrilled to be bringing the expansive and imaginative world of 'Star Wars' to Disney XD's viewers."
The plot will take place around two decades between the time of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, a time said to be untouched by any Star Wars production.
