Disney XD’s animated series “Star Wars: Rebels” is at the mid-point of its first season run and a second season is already set to go forward.
Now, a new report at Slashfilm indicates there are already plans in place for its successor. The site claims that Disney and LucasFilm are planning around three or four seasons of ‘Rebels,’ with a follow-up series to then air in either 2017 or 2018.
Whilst ‘Rebels’ takes place between the prequel and original trilogy, this new series is said to be set in the same timeline as the sequel trilogy which begins with next year’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
The site also says it’s unknown if key creative team members on ‘Rebels’ will transfer over to this new series which has not been confirmed by either Disney or Lucasfilm.
