Star Wars Rebels, Lucasfilm’s new animated series, is coming to Disney Channel in 2014.
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.
Executive producer Dave Filoni offers some general thoughts about Rebels to Pablo Hidalgo in this video from StarWars.com:
