Star Wars Rebels set for October airing?

June 1st, 2014 by Marc Comments

To be honest, we’d all sort of guessed that October would be the month that we’d see Star Wars Rebels premiering but it looks like it may now be confirmed.

Lucasfilm traditionally like October as a time to release new stuff with the Clone Wars Boxsets coming out in October and the Force Unleashed Games too, so we had a suspicion that was when we’d see The Ghost flying onto our screens.

But now the guys at Jedi News have released the below Tweet from @BlueJaigEyes who was attending Bookcon and took an image from an upcoming book from the series called Rebel Journal and at the bottom comes the legacy: “premiering on Disney XD in October 2014”.

So it looks like, come Halloween, the wait will be over…


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….
