Lucasfilm Ltd. and Disney have released their official press release for Comic Con 2014. Below you will find all the details on what they will be unveiling for Star Wars Rebels

Press Release: The Empire. The Rebellion. The Beginning. STAR WARS REBELS, Lucasfilm’s highly anticipated animated series detailing the start of the fight against the evil Empire, is coming this fall – but fans can get a big sneak peek at San Diego Comic-Con.

Lucasfilm’s special panel, The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels (Thursday, 7/24/14, 6:00pm - 7:00pm, Room: 6BCF), will feature executive producer Dave Filoni, as well as the first panel appearance by executive producer Simon Kinberg and stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray. They’ll discuss making the show and will debut several exclusive reveals from the upcoming series for fans in attendance.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures.   It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world.  As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.  The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

Scheduled to premiere in the fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Totally agree with you on that. This looked promising until I saw that.

Makes it now too kid friendly for me.

 Bunyon, I said the same thing months ago. The laser sling shot thing is a joke, right?... right?!

Higgy 7/9/2014 10:46:02 AM

Agreed.  I don't know why they think they have to invent something new for us to oo and aww over every time they make a spin off of Star Wars.  That just seems super lame...laser slingshot...I mean COMON!

Yes, frickin' laser slingshots should only be mounted on sharks.

yea slingshot, come on

Becasue of the laser slingshot I'm not going to watch this series now. What next, laser water baloons? Why not a wrist mounted laser crossbow? Much more probable and cool. A lot of people in Hollywood are way overpaid.

There is a kool SW fan film from some folks down under where they have a light boomarange that turns out way fun.  Sorry, they won't let me add a link.
