Star Wars Rebels to focus on teen characters

June 21st, 2013 by bash Comments

Bleeding are reporting that the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels will have mainly teenage lead characters.

The site said that not only is the show about the formation of the Rebel Alliance, taking place between Episodes III and IV, the title is also a take on the main characters.

The hub, which also scooped this week’s Episode VII casting news, said the new show will target a young audience – as expected from Disney XD – but that it would still play to older fans.

Ofcourse, while there’s yet to be confirmation from Disney and Lucasfilm we’re likely to find out more when fans attending Celebration Europe II this summer get a sneak peek of the new show.

Oh, and FTN will be there to bring you as many scoops as possible!

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
