Star Wars Rebels Movie Confirmed

    This is an extract from the Disney shareholder letter that was sent out to shareholders in hard copy this week.  It confirms a Star Wars Rebels movie coming this summer on the Disney Channel as well as a series of Star Wars Rebels shorts (probably to introduce us to the characters in the show) which will also be shown on the Disney Channel.  This will be followed by a continuing series on Disney XD as we’d previously expected.

    “…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.”

    We can’t wait!
