Darth Vader TV Specials?

What does that mean?

This news broke over the weekend and it has everyone scratching their heads as to what it means. Jedi News (a UK site) broke the official news that there will be Star Wars Darth Vader TV Themed Specials arriving in the Spring/ Summer of 2014. This news came from the European Brand Licensing Show in which Disney handed out the following brochure with this information: 
This is a page from the Disney brochure given out to the attendees of the European Brand Licensing Show. This is the detailed current calendar plan from Disney for the Star Wars brand. Plenty of little bits of info that will stir much debate and discussion:
  • Star Wars Mobile LEGO games following on from successful app releases of the Batman and Harry Potter platform ports. Coming in Spring / Summer 2014.
  • A Star Wars Digital Library is to launch in Autumn / Winter 2014.
  • Confirmation that the plan remains for Star Wars Episode VII to be released in the Spring / Summer of 2015.
  • But perhaps the most surprising, exciting and fast approaching news is the release of “Darth Vader Themed TV Specials.”
So what does this mean? The Darth Vader TV Specials might be a prelude or a series of shorts that leads us into Star Wars Rebels. The release date seems to match up with that theory. If you remember the micro Clone Wars series was all short little pieces that when strung together told a larger story. Perhaps Disney and Lucasfilm will try this “shortened” approach as a tease for Rebels
