Get ready for 'Star Wars Rebels' teaser, news

Have you been missing "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" or any kind of animated "Star Wars" on your TV?

"Star Wars Rebels" is flying ever so closer to Disney XD. The network will air a 15-second teaser video on Monday, Oct. 7, during the 7:30 p.m. premiere of the new series "Mighty Med."

In meantime, I've posted the "Rebels" logo and concept art provided by Lucasfilm. The teaser will give fans a very brief feel for the upcoming "Rebels’ series set to debut in the fall of 2014 on Disney and Disney XD channels, Lucasfilm says.

Lucasfilm and the network also will tweet the teaser from @StarWars and @DisneyChannelPR on Monday night. And come back here next weekend; I will post more news about the series after announcements are made at New York Comic-Con.

Dave Filoni, who served as supervising director of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," will executive produce the new series. Joining him as executive producers are Greg Weisman ("Young Justice," "The Spectacular Spider-Man," "Gargoyles") and screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: First Class," "Sherlock Holmes"), who also will write the premiere episode.

The time between "Episode III" and "Episode IV" has never been explored on-screen, Lucasfilm said. "Star Wars Rebels" takes place when "the Empire is ... hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape," an earlier Lucasfilm release said.

The Disney Channel, Disney XD and Lucasfilm are units of the Walt Disney Co. Follow all the "Star Wars" news at starwars.com.
