Star Wars Rebels movie coming this summer?

February 5th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
