Disney Orders 2nd Season of Star Wars Rebels


As a hint of Disney’s confidence in the Star Wars brand, the House of Mouse has ordered a second season of the CG animated series Star Wars Rebels even though it has yet to air its first episode. Star Wars Rebels is one of the first fruits of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm last 2012, set years before the events of Episode IV as it follows the beginnings of the very rebellion that will end the Galactic Empire’s reign.

Star Wars Rebels is executive produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (the X-Men movie franchise) and animation veteran Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man). The series was heralded by an hour-long movie titled Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, which aired yesterday on Disney XD. The series itself will begin on October 13 at 9 pm ET/PT on Disney XD in the US.
