It has to be said we aren’t surprised at all but Star Wars: Rebels has been renewed for Season 3, which makes us very happy.
With everyone pacing the floors over The Force Awakens, everything Star Wars is being devoured by the fans – luckily it’s all pretty good, and none is better than Rebels.
And now Lucasfilm and Disney XD are bringing the show back in 2016. Created by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Carrie Beck, the animated series takes place during the time period between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, as a fierce rebel resistance begins to form.
Lucasfilm SVP of Development Kiri Hart had this to say about the renewal: “We’re very proud of our incredibly creative Rebels team. The show continues to tell fun, heartfelt, exciting newStar Wars stories week after week, and it’s beloved by fans of all ages. Season Three will see our rebel heroes face new obstacles and find new allies in their fight against the Empire.”
It looks like the story of the Rebellion will be a long on… which sits just fine with us.
