Here’s some great news to start the week – Disney XD has ordered a third season of STAR WARS REBELS from Lucasfilm. The announcement came alongside news that STAR WARS REBELS: Season Three is already in-production and set to debut sometime in 2016. With STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS set for release on December 18th, it’s interesting to see how REBELS will play out as ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY should hit theatres for Christmas 2016, meaning that there will be both animated and live-action STAR WARS projects at the same time – both of which inhabit a similar timeline leading up to the story told in 1977’s original STAR WARS film. Appropriately, our youngest daughter is wearing her “famous” Her Universe “Sabine” shirt right now as I type this…
“We’re very proud of our incredibly creative Rebels team,” says Lucasfilm SVP of Development, Kiri Hart. “The show continues to tell fun, heartfelt, exciting new Star Wars stories week after week, and it’s beloved by fans of all ages. Season Three will see our Rebel heroes face new obstacles and find new allies in their fight against the Empire.”

I absolutely LOVE how they incorporated his styling into a muscle car design.
The transformative second season of STAR WARS REBELS featured the return of fan-favorite clone troopers Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, and the debut of new characters including the Seventh Sister, a cunning and crafty Inquisitor who is tasked by Darth Vader to track down the rebels. Following a series of critical events, the lives of our heroes will be changed forever as Season Three begins.
STAR WARS REBELS is created by Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Sherlock Holmes”) and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg.
The Season Two voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Sarah Michelle Gellar as the Seventh Sister Inquisitor.
