With Rebels getting closer and closer, we’re enjoying the leaks, rumours and news that are coming almost by the day – hey, any new Star Wars is good – so this latest bit of info from the folks at Jedi News has us genuinely excited.
They managed to get their grubby little rebel scum hands on a shareholders letter from Disney that confirms some exciting news about the beginning of the new series on the Disney Channel this summer, before the full series kicks off in the fall on Disney XD:
“While the world eagerly awaits Episode VII to open in theaters, we’re introducing Star Wars Rebels to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD. Our success in building a robust pipeline of original Star Wars content for various platforms will be an integral part of our long-term strategy to leverage the franchise across a variety of our businesses, from theme parks to consumer products.”
So, on top of that, the theme parks rumour seems to be confirmed and we can expect a slew of Star Wars merchandise too… no surprise there.
Any way, the Force is ever strong with this one.
