Behind the Scenes of Star Wars Rebels

Members of the cast and crew of Star Wars Rebels present an exclusive look at the highly anticipated television series. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the might of Imperial forces in the spotlight. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation and featuring many of the key talents from the Emmy Award-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere this fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel; it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Book News

  • Joining the list of “Untitled” Star Wars books is “Untitled Star Wars Book #3″ (via edelweiss) which is set for a January 13, 2015 release (352 pages, hardcover). This is most likely Kevin Hearne‘s untitled Luke Skywalker novel, the third book in the Empire and Rebellion series. No blurb or description is given for the book. As for the other two “Untitled” Star Wars books, there is still no new updates, however they are not the Star Wars Rebels original novels, as those two have separate listings.
