Disney and Lucasfilm have announced a new Star Wars animated series called Star Wars: Rebels, which incidentally is also Lucasfilm’s first animated series under Disney who acquired the firm last year.

The show will take place in a “whole new era” between the events of Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV; “in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.”

It should please Star Wars fans to know that the team behind the new animated series consists of many familiar and iconic faces. Starting with Dave Filoni, who is serving as executive producer on Rebels, Killian Plunkett who has once again joined his role as art director and Joel Aron who has taken over the spot of CG supervisor.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “The entire team at Lucasfilm has provided extraordinary creativity and innovation for over three decades, and we’re thrilled to be bringing the expansive and imaginative world of Star Wars to Disney XD’s viewers.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to explore new corners of the Star Wars universe,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president, Lucasfilm. “I think Star Wars Rebels will capture the look, feel and fun that both kids and their parents love about Star Wars.”

The pilot, which will be an hour long, has been slated to air on the Disney Channel in fall of 2014.
