Star Wars Rebels Scores A Renewal

Only a day out from its premiere, the upcoming animated “Star Wars Rebels” series has been renewed for an official second season by Disney XD.

The one-hour telemovie “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion” is scheduled to premiere tomorrow night on the Disney Channel ahead of its regular series berth on Monday nights on Disney XD from October 6th. That night will see a repeat of the telemovie. New half-hour episodes commence the following week.

In a statement, Disney Channels Worldwide President and CCO Gary Marsh says: “The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher. And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”

The series, set between events of the two previous trilogies, will air in 34 languages across 163 countries in over 400 million households.
