Eager Star Wars fans looking for the next big thing from the property won’t have to wait until the 2015 release of Star Wars Episode VII as a new animated series will be coming to Disney XD in fall of 2014.  Set in the time between Episodes III and IV, Rebels will chronicle the “a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knight.”  Given this description, it’s safe to assume the series also follows the events of The Force Unleashed.  While the game may have received middling reviews, it’s hard to dispute the fact that it told an incredible story surrounding the formation of the Rebel Alliance.

Little else is known about the series, but it has been confirmed that several key people from the previous animated Star Wars series (The Clone Wars) will be working on Rebels.  These include Dave Filoni, Kilian Plunkett, and Joel Aron.

Rebels will debut on Disney XD with a 1-hour premiere in the fall of 2014.
