Lucasfilm has debuted another behind-the-scenes video for their upcoming animated series “Star Wars Rebels” which features executive producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) talking not only about why he loves Star Wars but also about what we can expect from the new series. Check it out in the player below!
The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV — an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It 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.
“Star Wars Rebels” will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” It is scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, and will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
