New Animated Series Coming 2014: Star Wars Rebels


In a move that will help ease the passing of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this week Lucasfilm announced the development of a brand new animated series, titled Star Wars Rebels. The project is to be helmed by TCW director Dave Filoni and will focus on events between Episodes III and IV. According to Filoni, the art direction of the series (both in design and color palette) will be heavily influenced by Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art for the Original Trilogy. As a result, some designs such as the proto-X-Wing pictured above, may find their way into the series. Click below the jump for the announcement video, featuring an interview with Filoni himself!
