The world is gearing up for the premiere of Star Wars Rebels on Friday, October 3, at 9PM ET/PT on the Disney Channel. Verified subscribers will be able to watch the series in advance starting tomorrow, Friday, September 26, through the WATCH Disney XD app and website. Additionally, there will be national screenings of the highly anticipated series this Saturday, so stay tune for a flood of reactions and comments via social media.
Until then, Star Wars Rebels appeared earlier today in Empire Magazine and the New York Times. In Empire, executive producer Simon Kinberg talks about the series and its connections to Star Wars: Episode VII. In the latter, we see an extensive article introducing this new era of Star Wars and the impact Rebels will have on the franchise (despite the article’s negative views of the prequel trilogy and Star Wars: The Clone Wars).
Our very own Jason Ward made the NY Times article with the following quote:
“I just want every ‘Star Wars’ fan to know that greatness is coming our way,” wrote Jason Ward, the editor of the MakingStarWars blog, after catching “Rebels” footage at Comic-Con. “They’ve nailed this. Disney’s first real outing with ‘Star Wars’ is a success.”
Stay tuned for more Star Wars Rebels news as it develops!
