Disney XD’s brand new animated series Star Wars Rebels has been confirmed for a second season before a single episode has even aired.
The Season 1 creative team of executive producers Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni, and co-executive producer/supervising writer Henry Gilroy will all remain on board for Star Wars Rebels Season 2.
Disney Channels Worldwide president Gary Marsh said, “The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher. And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”
“We all love making Rebels, so we couldn’t be happier that it’s moving into a second season,” says Lucasfilm VP of creative development, Kiri Hart. “Our fantastic creative team is dreaming up new stories for the crew of the Ghost that will expand their experience of the galaxy and deepen their heroes’ journeys. The fan response to the show has been amazing, humbling and inspiring. We’re looking forward to the adventure ahead.”
Star Wars Rebels will air 3 October 2014 on Disney XD. For the latest Star Wars: Episode VII news, subscribe to SciFiNow and save 30% off the cover price.
