Many fans have come to love The Clone Wars series on Cartoon Network and was introduced with a cheesy movie. With the success that the series brought, we’re going to be seeing a new series based off the events between episodes III and IV with the hunting down of the Jedi. To introduce the new Star Wars Rebels series, there will be another animated movie and some animated shorts coming this Summer. This was announced by Bob Iger in the Disney Shareholder’s Report;
“As with Marvel, the rich universe of ‘Star Wars’ has tremendous creative potential for the entire company. While the world eagerly awaits ‘Episode VII’ to open in theaters, we’re introducing ‘Star Wars Rebels’ to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD. Our success in building a robust pipeline of original ‘Star Wars’ content for various platforms will be an integral part of our long-term strategy to leverage the franchise across a variety of our businesses, from theme parks to consumer products.”
So it looks like we don’t have to wait til December 18th 2014 in order to see more in the Star Wars Universe.
