Star War Rebels gets a launch date

News Rob Leane 20 Aug 2014 - 07:23

Hour-long intro Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion is coming this autumn.

As Disney’s continuation of the cinematic Star Wars universe continues to develop, and we inch slowly towards Episode VII’s December 2015 release date, we will shortly have a tie-in to watch while we wait.

Star Wars Rebels, the animated televisual tale of the Rebel Alliance’s early days, has now been confirmed to reach screens worldwide on 3 October. If you have access to Watch Disney’s website or app, you can watch the opening episode as early as 29 September.

Launching the series will be Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion, an hour-long special which will serve to introduce the characters and themes of the show, which takes place five years before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

Created by The Clone Wars’ Dave Filoni with help from X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s Simon Kinberg, Star Wars Rebels will start with the Jedi who survived Revenge Of The Sith being in hiding, and from there begin bridging the gap between the two trilogies.

More news as we hear it.
